Well, I'd be more than happy to finish this guy..

Sorry about all the waiting and what, had a move and a new job.
It seems I can't actually remove my article from the flea market for some reason. So I suppose I can't put it back in the regular review.
Additionally, even though I had this on here for long enough to get submitted to flea market in the first place, I didn't get more than one line in the way of constructive criticism. It would be pretty useful if I could get some tips as to what I need to fix, instead of just a blanket "fix it".

Thanks for your time.

Hi NoSuch smiley - smiley

If you click Writing-FleaMarket if there's not a Remove link, they'll be a x on the right-hand side next to your Entry, you can click that to remove it back to your Space. smiley - ok

I suggest you do some work on your Entry, and have some time to spare, before you re-submit to Peer Review. smiley - smiley

You may also like to read Writing-Guidelines where you can find lots of useful information, including writing in the third person, which is what McKay mentioned in the Peer Review thread.

Also, it would be good if you could change your Entry to GuideML. That's the language h2g2 uses, to enable you to add Headers/Subheaders, links, bold or Italic text etc, you can find out more at A2669051 it says it for a personal Space, but works the same in Guide Entries. smiley - magic

It may just be me, but I didn't find your Entry easy to follow, it does not explain things clearly. smiley - erm

There are also quite a few typos, and I'd suggest where you say 'his/hers/its' would be better to say 'their'.

In my opinion your Entry does have the potential to be an Edited Entry via the normal Peer Review process, if you have the time and the commitment to work on it.smiley - biggrin

Thanks for posting something, Em.. although I don't keep up with the MLA, I'm pretty sure most of the refs where I used pronouns were singular, so "their" wouldn't work. If it's really that unreadable as is I suppose the horrid "his or her" is inevitable.

The article is still unremoveable it seems. Now it gives me the X to click on but it only produces an error stating I don't have permission to remove the thread; Seems H2G2 is still a little broken..

If anybody knows a workaround for this one I'd appreciate an update.
