It's because I'm ESL and usually blindly follow the a/an consonant/vowel rule. Most of the time it ends up right but sometimes it fails, I keep forgetting that 'u' can not only be a vowel but also a consonant sound depending on the word in English. (I can't think of any case in Swedish where 'u' becomes a consonant like that)

Seems to be more than just me though, Wuzzy (who is German) also has a similar quirk in his English:

Ah, that makes more sense. If ever you're unsure about it, just speak the word out loud and write down whatever sounds more naturally-flowing. That's probably about the only advice I can give as a dirty monolingual native.

Glad to have my old account back btw.

hehe "an ooser".
yeah the "an precedes vowels" rule is about spoken vowels, not written.

Thank you Compa and hi everyone!

I am dibesfer and I've conquered The Voxelmanip Classic Server.

Yes we met there while you were vandalizing gay propaganda.

I thought this forums had a lot to do with the Voxelmanip mt server. But no. Anyway. This layout feels better than the vast majority of wordpress sites. 🤣
You should add iframe {max-width = 100%} to the CSS


How I met VoxelmanipI first listened Sudoku

Then I played mtplace, which I proudly keep bookmarked.
You should add img {max-width = 100%} to the CSS

Then voxelmanip classic server.

I still struggle to write ROllerozxa.

I felt I had to contribute a little so here I am to test the limits of the markup languages!!!

🤘🏳️‍🌈👾

Also first post of September. 🍂

This place isn't dead as much as it's in hibernation most of the time. Not that it's a bad thing either, a slow paced forum makes it easier to catch up with things. :)

This is what it is. People come and go. A few people post here ever now and again.

Long URLs and text look awful on mobile.

Also, it'd be interesting to see post revisions stored more efficiently but that's nothing to do with the bigger issue highlighted above.

Hello. This place is kinda dead nowadays but is still up because there's no real harm keeping it around on the server that I host other stuff on anyways.

sorry for the late reply, had to create another account because i forgot the password almost immediately (though i have to say that you are partly responsible for making the requirements unwieldy)
anyway, it's nice to meet you (i love ralsei too)
