    I should think so. It'd be a tad ridiculous if not. :p

    I advise you to not write "-s's," try "-s'." It looks a bit more professional. :)

    Hm, Trax. Your story seems to have suffered from some paragraphing issues. Was that giant block of text meant to be formatted in such a manner? It makes it a little hard to read much less comprehend and analyze.

    Bad grammar. Should be:

    That is also up to the judges to decide, who are aaron and myself.

    Are you fit to be a judge?

    In fact, it should be "That is also up to the judges to decide, who are Aaron and myself."

    Haha. I don't fully expect proper noun capitalisation on forum posts, however.

    They've been accepted as judges, which means they have proved themselves to Pyritie. It is also a well-known fact that someone who is pissed off with you will not be quite as generous towards you, so it would be in your best interests to leave them be.

    So I'm supposed to sit back and watch a person that determines 30% of the points in the contest make a basic grammar error?

    Yes, he made a grammatical error. However, not everyone bothers about having spiffy grammar online, or he made a mistake. I am saying I trust him because he made it past Pyritite, and if you don't think that Midnighters will make a good judge then make your case to Pyritie.

    I am perfectly fit to be a judge, I have a very good knowledge of the English language. Also, which is works in the sentence. It is considered proper.

    Aaron doesn't spell his name capitalized, so I say it the way he spells it.

    As said above, I have a good knowledge of the language, I am a native English speaker, and I know how a sentence is set up.

    What?

    Look, you're a judge and are being really, REALLY vain about it. Just get off your high horse and act normally, please.

    Wow you are all acting like little kids, if you have such a fucking problem with the judges than sign up yourself. If you haven't noticed the contest is over and we had no judges we had to appoint people who could do it, also most of the people with writing qualifications are entered in the contest, so either shut the fuck up or do something about it.

    I'd be acting like him if I had a troll poking me with a stick too.

    I didn't mean to offend anyone. I was just being pedantic.

    By the way, I'm also a native English speaker (a Brit no less) and I'm pretty sure that "which is" doesn't work - "which" is always singular, unlike "who", and "the judges" is plural.
