Reporting for hoyifung04:
Arcane scholar is capitalized on the side pane and player profile, inconsistent with other sidekicks
Also Occasionally is misspelled in solar disc "Occasonally blocks enemy attacks."

Occasonally blocks enemy attacks.

Fixed again, with feeling. Thanks!

Snicker snack multiuse:

You, perhaps unwisely, eat the vorpal snack. The snacks ruin your perfectly beamish day and, well...

Shouldn't that be pluralized there?

Should be, yes. Thanks!

The shopekeeper mails in your silver stars for you and waits patiently for your dehydrated goats to arrive in the mail.

When consuming a single snicker-snack:
It would make for a good story, but empiricism makes you fruminous and, well...

I checked the poem, and Lewis Carroll spelled it "frumious". Of course, I realize it's a nonsense word, so I'm not sure if that was intentional.

Nonsense words are the most important to get right. Fixed.

Multi-using mint goat milk:
You drink plenty of milk milkshakes until you don\'t feel quite so stupid to yourself, whatever that means.

Aside from the "don't", I'm not sure if "milk milkshakes" was intentional. The single-use message calls it a "minty milkshake".

Fixity fixed, thanks!

Consuming a single goat latte:
You slam the latte. It\\\'s sort of like kopi luwak, but with goats... let\\\'s never think about that again. Anyway, it\\\'s pretty good.

Muti-using goat latte:
You drink latte after latte. These are sort of like kopi luwak, but with goats... let\\\'s never think about that again. Anyway, they\\\'re pretty good.

\ is the escape character; I've seen this often, and it's usually a case of misplacing the escapes. You need to escape ' and \ itself, so it probably got typed twice and both were escaped, leading to \\\'

Triple escape characters is why I assumed it was deliberate, plus it appeared after it was pointed out a double escape character was elsewhere. I figured someone was trying to be funny.

From the second paragraph of the syphon gun prototype's description:
In any event, the label on the side describes this backpack-mounted unit as an "broad-scale...

EDIT: Oh, and also, it's a "syphon gun prototype" in the description, but the Wok has it listed as a "prototype syphon gun".

Fixed those up, thanks!

The last sentence of Alpha's description:
The way its optics (and lasers) swing to face you strongly imply its talking about you.

Besides the noun-verb mismatch (singular noun and plural verb), there's the "its" problem again.
it's = contraction of "it is" or "it has"
its = possessive of "it"

Fixed those up, thanks!

From the description for cafeteria cauliflower:
You can tell this cauliflower came out of a cafeteria because it's still holding the shape of the ice cream scoop that filled it.

I think it should be the cauliflower that fills the scoop, not the scoop that fills the cauliflower.

...unless it's ice cream scoop-stuffed cauliflower.

I know what I'm making for dessert tomorrow.

When purchasing Expandable Lad's gloves:
The shopkeeper accepts your stars in exchange for a battle-scared pair of gloves. All the other heroes' sidekicks are going to be so jealous!

Is that supposed to be "scarred"?

Of course. Expendable Lad is never scared! Fixed that up, thanks!


But Lord does he have scars.

Guess that plural needs fixing. Please let us know the fixed version in case you don't fix it today or the memento page doesn't update after your fix. :mrgreen:

Fixed, thanks :) And it should show up on the memento page.

Either's appropriate, although APA and CMS both prefer 's after singular proper nouns ending in s.

multiple use:

You load a discs into your SQUID player and enjoy an extended retelling of your adventures with the Nostronomian.



Also, from the journal messages:

when looking for the alien after the 120 minutes:

Quote:
A badge on the scrap says "Shiloh Sanitarium Orderly" in large, friendly letters.
Huh. You're not sure if it's more surpising that Shiloh has orderlies or that they were out here.


Fixed, thanks! Might be a few more Sanitariums lurking around.

The last sentence, after defeating Dr. Somnus:
...instead setting up a store like it's ancestors.

The second sentence of the description of the Nostronomian signal whistle:
It's usefulness is somewhat limited...

Are you just messing with me now? :)

Also, one of Dr. Somnus' miss messages:
Dr. Somnus swings her watch while filling you in on the inmates daily lives...
That looks like it should be the possessive, inmates'.

EDIT: Also also, from the description for the watch of Dr. Somnus:
Honestly, when you're dealing with an item that got its powers from Mad Scientist playing with...
That looks like it should be "from a Mad Scientist".

Fixed those, thanks. Not messing with you, just terrible at its and it's :lol:

From hoy:
When using Crush Dreams against psychic immune (e.g. Dr Somnus): "You try to reach through your talisman to crus your foe's dreams, but they're too well hidden for that."

Crushed the typo, thanks!

You convince the city to get a giant vat of squid and a huge bag of orangutang food, mix them together, and hang them from the roof of your tower. Assuming the smell doesn't kill your entire league first, the Orwhal should find it hard to resist.


Quote:
You have a giant bowl of orangoutang chow and squid dangling from the roof. That... seems dangerous.

Somebody must have really thrown your collective weight around with City Hall to get permission for that.


Which of the spellings will it be? They're both ok, but roof messages have the 1st version.

Also, wikipedia and http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/orangutan use "orangutan" as the main term.

Looks like we've been using orangutang. Thanks!

Oops, missed one last month! From the second paragraph of the description for Expendable Lad's boots:
Expendable Lad had a horrible habit of jumping into the middle of things, even when he was terrible outclassed.

Terrible outclassed is kind of a great, if accidental, turn of phrase. Fixed!

One of the haunted umbrella's hit messages:
A freak storm washes over Twilight, but the umbrella just wanders off at least opportune moment, leaving you to get soaked.
It looks like there's a missing "the" between "at" and "least".

In the laughing yeti's description you misspelled the name of the other cryptid, it is written "mokole-mbembe" and should be "mokele-mbembe"

They might be a made up creature, but they have feelings!....maybe :P

My cryptid knowledge is appropriately shamed.

I just noticed that all of the description pop-ups for item drops from Nutcracker's hat are missing the "Comes from the December 2011 Item of the Month" thingy. I did some more checking and saw the same thing for subscription vouchers. I'm not sure if those were intentional.
