Hi Andre,

This doesn't make sense:
"thanks to myself the telecast series arrived the 30th section"

And Springfield should be capitalized.

Hi Jen,
pleased to meet you.

- Where I wrong? I should change word "section"? ... hmmm, I think "season" is correct (ok, let's go)

- To capitalize? ... The first is "springfield-ers" - the residents, habitants. I already saw they use in this manner on an episode, but I change if necessary (nationalities only?).
Sorry, I don't understand grammar.
Also rectify me on items list text, if possible please.


Thanks by help.

Hi Andre,

I'm not sure what you mean by "The best in Springfield"; the best character, the best wrestler?
I suggest adding a question to the intro, because it is a bit unclear what you want us to vote for.

Seconding this necessary amendment.  I came here just to mention this as well.

Implied questions aren't allowed.  Please write out what you're asking for the poll.

Jessica, Stephen.
Hi new friends. I glad with your presence here.

That poll is an enjoyment... a diversion, just a fun to Simpsons fans and everybody.
How Peter spoke: "Would make an episode." ... ... It's is a fun story.

Here don't have implied question. The users will vote on their favourite char serie.

The wrestling is just a stage setting. Who fights better or is strongest (like Patty Bouvier in my opinion) do not matter.

And the texts on each image are to ally the introduction, with the "Homer said". More pastime... a little of my Simpsons knowledge. But others fans knows more, a lot of.

...

Sorry, if really needs modification, help me please. I am from Brazil, my English, the grammar, is bad. Write to me transcribe.

thanks

There literally isn't a question* written in your list.  There isn't a question mark ending a sentence that's eliciting information from the suggestion's readers.

No one can read your mind in a poll suggestion.

Don't know what this ["favourite char serie"] exactly means but I'll assume it's a typo for favorite character. If you are asking the reader to "Please vote for your favorite character" then you have to write it out in text.  This is the first time you used the term favorite.  Their absence in the text make it by definition a vague implied character because you are making the reader guess at the intent of your poll.  This could backfire if people guess wrong and they end up voting for someone whom they figure would be able to win in a group wrestling match.

The writing/setup of your suggestion is a tad gimmicky as you are not quite getting across what you want to in the text you have presently. So, it you like please copy and paste one of the following statements/questions:
Which of the following listed characters is your favorite?
Who do you think would win in this popularity battle-royale?

A message to make a suggestion visible again can always help. If the text needs some edition you can keep it up to date and that will increase its chances.

This project started almost 2 years ago, but the theme remains current... even after many "facts"... ... Apu's problem, Fox to Disney, etc.
