On the main page, it is such:

Guitar Techniques (34 Viewing)
The forum for discussing techniques. For beginners and experts alike, come in sit down and have fun!

Correction below. Just grammar nazi-ing it up a bit.

Actually it can be argued that it promotes better technique to practice standing up, therefore perhaps complete removal of the 'sit down' part would be better?

"Guitar Techniques (654 Viewing)

Or maybe a hyphen or semicolon separating "alike" and "come in".

It was mainly the lack of comma that was pissing me off, but then I had to make it make sense again.

Please fix this. If this is the only thing UG does for the next ten years, let it be this.

First person on UG to be a grammar nazi and use the correct form of "your" in the correct context.

You don't place a comma before "and" in the list as it is the last topic.

Sorry. While it could be used in conversation to indicate a pause, it generally isn't correct and then I'll spaz my shit and make a new thread to get that fixed as well.

The problem with the first one is a hanging modifier (which you fixed) (I may not have the correct term there.

The problem with the correction is that it has a rather atrocious sentence fragment.

I applaud your belief in grammar (it helps us, you know, coherently communicate) but you fixed a problem by creating another thereby destroying your credibility and perhaps creating a problem you initially sought to resolve (run-on my ass).

Also, yes, that needs to be fixed.

edit: Slightly more correct:

This is the forum for discussing techniques for beginners and experts alike. Come in, sit down, and have fun!

Damn it, if we're going to be grammar nazis we may as well include the Oxford comma.

Your first sentence is too damn long, 'for discussing for beginners' sounds like ass.
