    We used a dot, but around the middle of the height of the line, back in 5th grade(possibly 4th grade), to denote multiplication. That's probably because "x" could have been confused with the letter "x" which was quite common in equations.

    This is the first time I read that someone from this forum try to SCHOOL BaTW. It is usually the other way around.

    Joking aside, I am not sure how long you have play CA but many of us have accepted the fact that CA is full of flaws: bad coding, bad grammar, misspell texts, etc... And I think that is why BatW as well as some here have try to say to you that people have come to "decipher and accept" what CA write in their game really mean. Sometime the error is of minor misleading; other times it can be a huge misunderstanding.

    In this case, the "x" notation, while might not be correctly use in certain region parts of the world, it is "understood" by many CA players what it really mean. Again, I am not justifying for CA or for anyone, rather may be you could take a step back and consider the other person view. BaTW has been accused of many things but in this case, I do not think he deserve the harsh language you dealt him.

    Have nice day mate.

    To be fair though, it could also be argued that they used plural because they are giving out multiple of the item in question.

    They only give one general opposed to ten thousand honor points.

    No, just no.

    Do you really have to try and make things into something that they are not?

    It was very clear from the get go that Didact was speaking about the content of a page that informs users of rewards earned from the event.

    As such we aren't talking about an Excel formula, we aren't talking about computer code of any language, we are talking about a piece of text written in nothing more than plain English.

    Given that you keep lecturing people on comprehension of the English language I'm going to assume that you -knew- this.

    I'm also going to assume that you knew that Didact is in fact correct as you yourself insist that the use of asterix is generally for computer science uses.

    Still you -chose- to try and twist the argument anyway.

    I'm considering your behavior both trolling and gaslighting and I won't allow it.

    Consider this a warning.

    If I catch you busying nonsense like that again you can expect an infraction instead.

    I believe many have tried, and all have failed, this is indeed a fantastic presentation.

    I totally agree with you, however, that this is a non-issue.

    You know, I honestly have no clue if it is actually used in the English language like that.

    Reading it again it does seem kind off odd grammatically speaking.

    It's very possible that it's just my brain making automatic (rough) translations of Dutch phrases again. (Which doesn't happen too much despite Dutch being my native language.)

    Although even in that case I'm not entirely sure if it isn't more of a dialect thing than anything else.

    Still... I don't think that after reading it there is any doubt about what it means so maybe it actually is correct grammar?

    Ok, so technically, the grammar is correct, insofar as the proper use of verb and noun placement. But it's still gibberish.

    I do believe this is a time that the 'then' would be necessary, in the "if/then" continuum.

    But this gobbly**** dies here and now. Stop trying to make fetch a thing. Fetch will never be a thing.

    And now I'm just left bewildered by the prior post's automated censorship. I knew I shoulda stayed the hell away from thia thread.

    I am not an native English speaker nor I am a grammar Nazi, but I do believe the sentence is missing a "with". It should may be read something like this:

    If I catch you busying with nonsense like that again, then you can expect an infraction instead.

    Perhaps, there is an English professor out there who can clarify.
