I understand that quite a few europeans use this site and I'm starting to notice this more and more. If english is not your first language, please find someone (either in real life or through this forum) who IS fluent in english who can proofread your guide, this will save you downvotes for grammar and spelling and will ultimately improve the overall quality of guides on the site.

Rule of thumb: If you haven't been speaking english every day for the past year (or more), ask someone to proofread for you.

Omg high school musical , ******** lil sisters who like gay movies:(.

On-topic: yeah i think that everyone shouldn't make up excuses just because they suck at English. If ya suck at English then don't publish at MobaFire or at least download a language pack on your computer.

I'm from Holland and i don't use a translator either , just try to write a proper guide and use a spell check afterwards o.o. Its easy ,
1.Go to google.com
2.Search English Spell Check
3.copy your guide
4. paste it
5. spell check
6. win

That's true! But how is it possible then for a person like me to get a grammarcheck after a vocabulary check? Any sites, ... for that?

And why does anyone says that I'm trolling if I say to use a translator? I just gave another option on what the topic goes ...

I bolded it in the quote. You said "I speak never English" instead of "I never speak English". Sorry if I offended you if it was an honest mistake, but you could see how I thought you might be being ironic, as if you meant, "Just use a translator (intentional grammar fail), it works great!" See you could have been sarcastic, meaning that translators aren't reliable for a proofread.

Which they aren't. The best thing to do is proofread it yourself, and like theBMB says, get someone fluent in English to proofread it if possible.

Sorry if I came off like a jerk Siveo, I didn't mean to be.
