Default a little sports forum specific suggestion.....

correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't "Sports Forum" supposed to be spelt exactly that way, not the way it's currently spelt in that ultra-purdy banner?

Sports Forum?

-or-

Sport's Forum?

i always thought that apostrophes we're used in words to make the condensed form of "(blank) is" as in like "it's" (it is) he's (he is) that's (that is)?

I know I'm being all nit-picky and whatnot....but c'mon.....it makes the place look like amateur hour or "my first message board".

Just a little constructive criticism from your not-so-perfect OT Mod.


Rebel, Error I know it's out of your control......but you might want to let the higher-ups know, yo.

I don't think many people use that layout anyway but yeah I guess you're right.

But if it bothers you then I'm sure someone will fix it but there isn't much I can do about it.

I'll make a copy of this for the mod room, to see if anything could be done.

well, I suppose it could be used either way. The apostrophe can also be used to denote ownership. As in "Exo's Forum". The apostrophe is used to tell the reader that the forum belongs to Exo, or in this case to Sport. It is the Sport's Forum. Or it could be written as sports forum and simply mean multiple sports are in here. Similarly, the WWE forum could always be called WWE's forum, and it would make sense, but not WWEs forum, because there is only one.

See how I'm jurt trying to help out.

You're right... but that's not how it should be used here. The apostraphe would not go inbetween the "t" and the "s" even if it is in the sense you're pointing out. It would be "Sports' Forum". We could, however, just put a disclaimer at the top of the forum saying that SC skipped grades two through twelve.
