Re: Some Insight

In Response To: Some Insight (grantix)


: This isn't official, and I can tell you that pretty easily.

: Not that grammar would make or break this thing, solely, but there are a few
: grammatical errors throughout this thing. Many uses of "That"
: instead of "Which".

: "I recently came across your request for information on Orion F484. How
: you even came across his name is beyond me, let alone what few salient
: facts you seem to possess. Considering the classified nature of the events
: surrounding everything that transpired, it's no surprise that your
: request was shot dead. I'm going to give you a gentle word of advice
: keep up your requests, and you'll be the same way."

: Should be a "which".

: I just would expect better grammar from 343i, what with Frankie and a few
: other writers working over there.

: Secondly, as someone who is currently enlisted in the military, and, as a
: matter of fact is actually in EOD school, I can point out some flaws which
: 343i would have the money to investigate.

: PFC: Army rank.
: CPL: Army and Marine rank.
: Swabbie: Navy jargon.

: If they're supposed to be Marines, which I would expect, considering this is
: Halo... that PFC rank should not be there, at all.
: Either way, a PFC EOD tech would not be running the scene. And CPL's aren't
: in EOD. A Staff Sergeant or a Sergeant would be. And he'd have, most
: likely, one or two other EOD techs with him.
: And... he would most likely not be reporting to some CPL. There would be an
: officer on scene.

: All in all... I'd say this was an excited fan, trying to push out an
: interesting fanfic. But definitely not official.

Good catch. I'm not so worried about the grammar, but the terminology certainly seems to seal it.
