Yep done some stuff in my time and like to think I have a half decent handle on making words go over a little better. Gonna mark you down for not including the finishing "double quotation marks"
It's one of my main gripes with this forum...it may be beyond the mods control, but could you consider;1. Reducing it to two or even three minutes2. Not applying it to the first two posts3. Not applying it to editsThe last one is probably the most irritating.
Hi R2."If you are young and wish to be treated in a manner appropriate for a child let us know. Otherwise we will assume you are an adult and can withstand good-natured banter without taking offence.""regardless of your experience and age we will try to treat you appropriately and would expect in return you can deal with some criticism and humour without offence"Just toned it down a little.
That's better, IMHO.
