althought it's not entirely sapient

From the Mirror Sea entry. It should be "although".

Looks like Karbo fixed it.

On the Demons page under Ancient Cerebus:
They are extremely clever as well, and are known to elaborate complex tactics
Should be something like:
They are extremely clever as well and are known to use complex tactics.

The Furred Parrot's link in the Tolmeshal Forest link directs to Fauna Page 3 where their entry is non-existent.

Elaborate is an adjective. It can't be employed in this situation, you need a verb which is where use would be more apt. Sounding out the sentence with the word elaborate also sounds wrong, from my point of view. From the description, its as if they are employing the tactic - which is an action. To elaborate on a topic is to more clearly and/or more distinctly identify a subject and its material. If I were elaborating complex tactics, I would be describing or further defining ability to another, not using them myself to achieve goals.

Maybe it should be, They are extremely clever as well, and are known for elaborate and complex tactics


Elaborate: (1) Developed in great detail; complex. (2) To work out in great detail. (3) To add more details; usually on or upon.

In this instance, Elaborate was used correctly, I think. Using both elaborate and complex might be somewhat redundant. Perhaps the sentence could be reworded just a tad bit.

The article for Felaryan atmosphere is on the Giant tree page. I think it would be better off on the physics page.

Under Dimensional Pocket Storms on the Physics page, there is a teeny weeny tiny little correction to make. There's an extra "n" in Dimensional and there is a "c" missing in effects.

Quote :
Dimensionnal pocket storms will warp the area, creating a variety of strange and interesting effets.

Fixed, plus one other little error.

I see artifact spelled as both 'artifact' and 'artefact' on the wiki on various pages.

Not saying one or the other is right, but a little consistency may do it some good, am I right? sweatdrop

On the new Nikita page, Personality is spelled incorrectly with two ns.


Additionally, no link exists in the character box for Nikita, though she is now in the wiki. Should be placed with the other dridder characters.

I think the general rule of thumb was that so long as each particular article only uses one form, both the British and American spellings of words are allowable. I hope its not too distracting though.

Both are now fixed.

Slug girls are one of the main predators for oozes,blobs and slimoids, slurping them up with ease.

Slug Girl's page. There should be a space between the comma and "blobs".

On the 'Oloonde lakeland' page:

Oloonde Lakeland is a foresty region north eats of the continent.

Should be:

Oloonde Lakeland is a forested region north-east of the continent.


'Foresty' means 'like a forest.' It is more appropriate to use 'forested,' the meaning of which is 'covered in forest'.

I don't know about you, but I think "north eats" fits in perfectly well with Felarya's rather carnivorous inhabitants.


Okay, the errors you mentioned are fixed.

From the silvery night entry
The silvery night design a particular occurance when, once in a while, two certain twin moons appear full and bright in the sky of Felarya.

Occurrence is misspelt.

"two certain twinmoons" This means that there are 2 sets of two moons, four moons in total.
I assume that this was not the intended meaning.

I'm also unsure of the use of "design' there. I would say that 'event' is more appropriate. However the most correct way would be to remove 'design' and change 'occurrence' to 'event.'

The silvery night a is a rare event in which a particular pair of full moons appear in the night sky of Felarya.

Fixed, though not in the way you suggested it. I wouldn't worry too much about errors on that page, as it seems to be under heavy construction and thus full of incomplete thoughts and sentences.
