Heading over to TIEBREAKERS under the URL: https://www.tripleclicks.com/Astro/Rules it is stated:-1::-1::thumbsdown:: Tiebreaker #2: Oldest winner. If tie is not broken by Tiebreaker #1, the win will be awarded to the bidder who has [u][b]went[/b][/u] the longest without winning the Pick The Bid I daresay:thumbsup: the CORRECT grammar:ok_hand: is: Tiebreaker #2: Oldest winner. If tie is not broken by Tiebreaker #1, the win will be awarded to the bidder who has [u][b]GONE[/b][/u] the longest without winning the Pick The Bid (2) :dizzy_face::neutral_face: AND THEN, would you say 1 REWARDICALS in case you were asked to ?

it is stated
:

will be awarded to the bidder who has went the longest without winning
the Pick The Bid

I daresay
the CORRECT grammar
is:
Tiebreaker #2: Oldest winner. If tie is not broken by Tiebreaker #1, the win
will be awarded to the bidder who has GONE the longest without winning
the Pick The Bid
(2)

AND THEN, would you say 1 REWARDICALS in case you were asked to ?
All members are seeing it all the time at the LAUNCHI** time; yet none
bothers to
complain..

Sanjeev, I see I have a kindred spirit across the world. I too notice typos and incorrect grammar, I have done it all my life. I guess the folks who develop these games are more tech-oriented and less concerned about grammar. Perhaps they will see this post and fix it soon. Thank you for your keen observation!

Hello, Sanjeev! I agree the grammar in your example is atrocious! And when playing AA, I also get a bit of a chuckle when I am watching the Launch and a message appear saying "You have just won 1 Rewardicals!" and I would play it back to myself as "You have won JUST one Rewardicals" , etc. to keep myself amused, while wishing a 1000 Rewardicals will appear, instead of Just 1 to make the grammar correct! LOL!:laughing: However, if we spend our time looking for grammatical errors in every posts we read at the Forum, nothing productive will happen. Besides, we're not here to edit, proofread, and point out mistakes in grammar. You know, this Forum is full of posts with grammatical errors, and mine is not an exception! Even Gery himself is not immune! Means, he's also human like the rest of us and prone to make an error or two... Nobody is perfect, eh?:wink2: GP

Dear Gliceria,



I agree with you fully because you never ever "try to put down" others
and present your opinion in such an amiable way.


I merely "put in the Suggestion Box" a SUGGESTION that i deemed PROPER.

As for correcting
, or editing, i would never again touch another member's
post with a bargepole unless it was a friend - YOU, for example.
Sometime last year, a member took umbrage to my lighthearted
IMPISH
poke { can't help it }; i apologized but my apology was not even posted.
It got rejected with a reason = "Purpose of your post was not clear"

I was , honestly, surprised but i really have seen stranger things happen.
Not only in this forum but in real life ae well.

I could post a few under *Just For Fun or **Miscellaneous but deem it a little
too cumbersome given the fact that HUMOR is not appreciated universally.

Sanjeev, you have mentioned only one example. If you notice questions of Gold Streak, Brain Sprint, KOT etc, you will see most of the sentences are grammatically WRONG. Grammatically wrong sentences definitely confuse readers & sometimes very difficult to understand. Moreover, grammatically wrong sentences destroy the BEAUTY of a language. And finally I would say this topic is NOT undesirable for discussion on Forum page. Bijan Kanti Pandit

Randy is correct in that the best way to call for a correction is here: [url=https://www.sfimg.com/Input/SubmitBugReport]Submit a Bug Report[/url], but the suggestion topic is also read by corporate so this is also a useful place. Finding the bug report form is not as easy as it might be. In the black navigation bar, hover over MISC, slide down to Input/Feedback, then click on Submit a Bug Report. All bug reports and suggestions are taken seriously by SFI and prioritized according to the overall benefit to SFI and us, the affiliates.
