Mistake in Forum Rules and Policy
« on: June 26, 2006, 09:16:34 PM »
I accidentally hit it, but I noticed the last line reads, "Notes: Moderators may ammend this policy in their repective forums."

Now last I checked "repective" is not a word, but respective is. Also, it's amend not ammend. ;)

Well noticed! ;)

Also in rule 3, "offenses" is spelt offences.

There are probably a few more mistakes but that's all I can see for now.

It is also funny how in rule 2, the number of homework questions not allowed to be listed is specifically 5 or 6!

Chemists are such perfectionists. ::)

oh-yeah. ;)
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex

"Say you're in a [chemical] plant and there's a snake on the floor. What are you going to do? Call a consultant? Get a meeting together to talk about which color is the snake? Employees should do one thing: walk over there and you step on the friggin� snake." - Jean-Pierre Garnier, CEO of Glaxosmithkline, June 2006
