Now I rarely wonder over to this topic as I believe life is too short for pedantry, however I do feel that the grammatical error on the puzzle given to my daughter for her birthday is fairly unforgivable coming from the ELC. See my profile for the offending item.

That is awful

I know. I emailed them to tell them there was a grammatical error but said I wasn't going to tell them what it was, more fun to let them try and spot it grin

grin at not telling them.

There's a girl in my GCSE English class who puts an apostrophe at the end of her OWN SURNAME. It ends in -s. confused

Thistle That's a teaching opportunity. wink

I know! God I have HAMMERED punctuation into this class. Sadly, this girl doesn't attend much.

I can't get on to your profile yet I'm desperate to know what the offending item was!!! Please share! confused

Can't get on either - but that is because MNHQ have shut down the profiles whilst the random allocation of profiles is sorted.

GruffaloReader Thu 14-Jul-11 10:21:34

oh right - how weird... "random allocation of profiles".

Was it something you got from their Big Birthday Club do you mean? Or something she received as a present?

I have complained about grammar errors on their website before now. I always got an automatic email saying "we'll get back to you in 24 hours", or something, but they NEVER did. I don't buy from them any more, anyway, for various reasons.

Gruffalo

There are problems in that some people seem to have been randomly allocated someone elses talk name.

Those people can then access that persons profile including name changing history, threads I'm on (which would include any name changed threads) and inbox - which could include messages containing personal info. I think for those reasons MNHQ have tempaorarily disabled these area's of the site so that even if users are slipping into other peoples nicknames accidently they don't have access to information which could be regarded as private.

<And ignore my apostrophe...I openly admit I do not belong in pedants corner and only came to see what the ELC had done wrong>

GruffaloReader Thu 14-Jul-11 10:58:04

oh blimey that's worrying. Well they're trying to sort it anyway which is good (MNHQ that is).
