    Hey @flipflopgames
    Was checking it out and I think it's a great idea. Just want to suggest a few corrections that should be done to the actual page.

    Where it says, "Dreaming Bigger is for kids ages 9 through 11 That have a big idea for an App or Game." The "T" in that should be LOWER CASE!

    Where it says, "Are you dreaming a kid dreaming of making your first app and you need help then you are at the right place!" The first "dreaming" needs to be removed, need to capitalize the "A" in app, and lastly need to add "or Game" so then it would now say, "Are you a kid dreaming of making your first App or Game and you need help then you are at the right place!"

    Where it says, "And after you are done I can even publish your app!" It should say something along the lines of, "And after your App or Game is complete, I can even publish it!

    Where it says, "Dreaming Bigger is a program where kids send in their ideas for things they want to see become a big hit and I will help them work on the project that they want to develop!" Replace "for things" to "for an App or Game that", replace "big hit" with "reality" and lastly replace "them work on the project that they want to develop!" to "make it happen by working on the App or Game!"

    Where it says, "All you have to do is sigh up on the form below!" You have "sigh" rather than "sign". Need to replace the "H" with an "N".

    My last suggestion is that in the selection box where you have the choice to select if you want to do a Game or App, you should remove the option to select "other" since you are not offering other things through Dreaming Bigger, only to do Apps or Games.

    These are my suggestions and hope you take them into consideration to make it that much better and more professional. The idea is great and I like it. The website just needs some cleaning up a bit and it will be GREAT!

    Also "Kid" Is not proper grammar use "Child" "Kid" Means a baby goat

    @Leonard , Kid's is fine :L They are both valid and isn't a colloquialism. The different in usage comes down to the context of the situation e.g. when speaking in a formal situation the term child/children would be more appropriate while in a less formal conversation the term kid/kid's is more likely to be used. The goat term is clearly a somewhat secondary meaning in this case.

    @FlipFlop Looks really cool, nice to see someone so young working to help others! You have a good future! :)

    Conner … think that your mother/father should read the TOS for GameSalad.

    Actually lol.. "Kid" is a colloquialism and is only recently accepted, but not grammitaccly it is not correct... "Children", "Child" , Or "Kid's" (Which is correct) But kid on its own is incorrect.. The oxford dictionary also states so ;)
    Actually.. the first meaning for "kid" in a dictionary is a baby goat... The primary usage of "Kid" is a baby goat, but the colloquial usage is "A child"
    -------
    lol.... Me loves a bit of grammer ;)

    @motherhoose
    yeah... Thats what I thought, and apparently he has a pro licensce now as well.. What he's doing is good though... But if he's publishing under his name it doesn't comply under the GS TOS
  • youngster9youngster9 Posts: 326Member
    You guys should stop criticizing his grammar he is just 10, I think.

    Anyways, Conner I think this a great idea and it is great you are doing this out of the goodness of your heart. As for grammar you should get your parents or older sibling to read your website over before you publish anything or you can listen to LeonardDeveloper ;)

    Interesting fact, my dad works for OUP (Oxford University Press).

    kid 1 |kid|
    noun
    1 informal a child or young person.
    • used as an informal form of address: get going, kid!
    2 a young goat.
    • leather made from a young goat's skin: [ as modifier ] : white kid gloves.

    Oxford university press is nothing to do with the dictionary... Thats just the college press... the dictionary is from the worlds Leading linguisists...
    Oxford dictionary definition:
    kid/kid/
    •Noun:
    Young goat
    •Noun:
    Common Colloqui "Child or Young person"
  • DimensionGamesDimensionGames Posts: 993PRO
    I think I would know better than you on the matter? The people who work on the definitions work at OUP in oxford.

    I would like to ask where you are getting that from? Both my copy of the dictionary and the online oxford english dictionary state otherwise.

    Also please don't try and patronise me. Anyway don't bother replying to this, let us keep this on topic (though the topic has probably run it's course). If you want to discuss grammar elsewhere email me :L

    yes, but that piece of paper is questionable

    that doesn't mean you can't make games with GS and learn …

    @LeonardDeveloper

    "grammatically"

    For someone who loves "grammar" you sure misspell a lot.
    Lol!

    @MotherHoose - flipflopgames is fully in compliance with all applicable laws and procedures.
    Thank You
    for that

    I think many of you on here have lost sight of what this post was suppose to be for. @flipflopgames is doing some great stuff and just wanted some people in this great community to go over his stuff and give your advice. It is always good to get advice on things you do from more than one or two people. I would like to thank @SaladStraightShooter for making it clear to many people who were having issues with @flipflopgames doing things on GameSalad. We have to try and remember not to lose sight of the topics of posts and going off the topic.
