Re: Some Insight
Posted By: DEEP NNN <deep_nnn@hotmail.com>Date: 3/9/11 9:53 p.m.

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.

Thanks, I'll spend more time observing this topic than participating now.

You did notice Hive pointed out "To this end, it is crewed with both Naval and Marine personnel, occasionally carrying Army personnel as well." Does this improve the post's credibility any from your point of view?
