4Chan Donates $5,000 To Female Game Jam IndieGoGo Following Five Guys Fallout

One Angry Gamer "Instead of launching some ridiculous media wave for the power of truth or dragging any other individual’s name into the mud through some digital pitchfork-hungry mob, the good folks of /v/ decided to donate, to contribute to a cause, to elevate their integrity above that of their adversaries, and make known that gaming media is wrong. We’re not angry about what someone did in their personal life; we’re angry about being silenced by the people who are supposed to keep us objectively informed." (Industry)

Though I understand that you're impatient with getting approvals, you really didn't fix everything I listed:

- Replace the semi-colon with a comma from [/v/ decided to donate; to contribute] into [/v/ decided to donate, to contribute]
-Replace the comma with a semi-colon or period from [in their personal life, we're angry] into [in their personal life; we're angry]

***The semicolon is not used as commas unless special conditions are met. For a series example, the officer lived in Alexandria, Virginia; Devon, Colorado; and Rome, New York. For a merging statement or idea example, she loves Hyrule Warriors; this hack-and-slash game gathers familiar faces from the Legend of Zelda franchise.

Hope this helps in the future to check.

Not really impatient to get approvals, it's just more as if a lot of this is nitpicking on stylistic choices.

Semi-colons can be used to form independent clauses. Semi-colons can also be used to form adjacent but independent topical phrases.

At the end of the day it's based on appropriate, grammatical structural flow. Are there pause breaks where they're supposed to be? Are the thoughts written according to the way they were intended to be read?

I only made the changes because otherwise this article would continuously get hit with reports because of stylistic differences. That's not to say that all of your previous reports on this article were inaccurate.

Though I appreciate some stylistic choices that do push boundaries, I also want to understand the grammatical choices behind these made decisions. You can disagree with some points with me next time if I ever leave another report on your articles. If it really is a stylistic error, I will cancel it. However, I did appreciate the article. It was a good read and deserve attention.

Additionally, I apologize for my nit-picking, but I do this for each description that I read on this website because some folks are quite stubborn or do not follow through with the fixes despite checking them off. To leave on a better note, have a good Sunday and great job on the article.

Thanks for explaining that.

I do apologize if my comment(s) seemed crass. But thanks for offering your insight to provide better description quality on N4G. Enjoy the rest of the weekend. :)

You really need to get a life. Stop worrying about these things and get out more.

Casual comments on a message board shouldn't be put through the grammar wringer, but published articles (even on websites) very much should.

apparently the campaign got hacked and taken down.

2“So when you give to the poor, do not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, so that they may be honored by men. Truly I say to you, they have their reward in full. 3“But when you give to the poor, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, 4so that your giving will be in secret; and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you.

5“When you pray, you are not to be like the hypocrites; for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and on the street corners so that they may be seen by men. Truly I say to you, they have their reward in full. 6“But you, when you pray, go into your inner room, close your door and pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you.
