Post any errors you see throughout the site, particularly in the database. Even if you see the tiniest error, such as a spelling mistake, please take some time to report it here. You can mention anything text-related, graphics, files, anything.

I'm not going to say 'The site has been updated, so go check it out' like I have in the past. Reviewers and forum go-ers alike, you have the responsibility of visiting the site everytime you visit the forums, just in case there is an update. Don't be a moron and think that we're dead just because you won't leave the forums.

I would like to mention that there is no link to my Castle of Cagliostro review until you click on another review.

I'm afraid I do not know what you're talking about. Everything is 100% on my side. Remember, you can only access the reviews on the right side panel. When we figure it out, we'll make the navigation like it should be, but for now that's how it is.

Never mind.  It's showing up now.  Maybe I was just crazy last night.

Kuma's Lupin III review:  "Lupin even wears the green jacket, what more could you ask for from a Lupin movie?"

Should probably be:

"Lupin even wears the green jacket; what more could you ask for from a Lupin movie?"

Yup. Or they could be two separate sentences. Fixed.

A couple of things:

1.  James Bond and Sherlock Holmes should probably be underlined in my Castle of Cagliostro review.  There is also a "w" at the end of the Action/Comedy in said review.

2.  Somehow all the mentions of Ranma 1/2 in my Maze review ended up as, "Ranma ½"

3.  This one is my fault.  I used the phrase "come up with" twice in the last sentence of my Rune Soldier review.  This is bad writing on my part-the last sentence would be better as, "...himself would have been proud to have created."

I don't think so, because they're both fictional characters.

Yeah, fictional characters do not get the underline treatment.

Everything else you've pointed out, Kuma, has been fixed.

My "He Is My Master" review.  "Humor" should be "Humour"...  (as we agreed to ;)).

I'm confused...what? Does it matter whether it's "our" or "or"? It's the same thing.

It doesn't really matter, but for consistency we should probably stick with the American spelling, "or."

I made an agreement with Pheld that all my "or"s will be "our"s.

What consistency? The larger number of American reviewers for your site as opposed to those such as Sorrow-kun? What if, over time, AMG (or whatever you're going to call it) became composed of mainly reviewers from Britain, Oz, Canadia, etc.?

Over at AS, it really doesn't matter if you use '-our' instead of '-or'. For example, three of our reviewers are Canadian, and use what they are used to; we don't make them conform into using '-or' instead. It really shouldn't be an issue for your site.

And yeah, I know I'm late on the subject. :p

It has been changed to 'Humour' as you have requested, Sorrow-kun (yesterday). I was not aware of your agreement with Pheld, so sorry about that little misunderstanding.

And yes, "-our" or "-or" should be left alone. There's no need to make "Colour" into "Color" beacuse they are the same and neither are incorrect in any sense.
