    This one has always bugged me a bit:

    The 'where' should either not be there or say 'that'. This way it would read either 'Shows a list of the Great Buildings you are participating in.' or, 'Shows a list of the Great Buildings that you are participating in.'

    I have a problem with buying forge points. I am playing in 2 different worlds and neither of them will let me buy forge points, and it is part of a quest I need to complete. Any thoughts? Mark the Mighty King.

    Mark this thread is really for the grammar errors that appear in the game. To answer your question though click on the + sign next to your FP bar. There you will see the option to buy FP using in game coins or diamonds.

    Along with what Manda the first said. Make sure your forge point bar is NOT full. If it is, it will not pop up when hitting the + button. If you have open slots in your bar you can.

    Dursland -- thanks for this.

    There's a minor spelling/grammar issue in the event quest ("Pumpkin Seeds").
    It should say "any more pumpkin seeds", not "anymore pumpkin seeds".

    I moved a butcher closer to my cottages and it gave me an overlay bug. It put it over the cottages. :confused:

    That's not actually an English grammar rule, despite how often grade-school teachers try to tell you it is. :)

    Wow you're right!! from the internets: At one time, schoolchildren were taught that a sentence should never end with a preposition. However, this is a rule from Latin grammar that was applied to English. While many aspects of Latin have made their way into the English language, this particular grammar rule is not suited for modern English usage

    When manually aiding someone from their city, mousing over the "Motivate" or "Polish" buttons says "You will get 20 coins for your help". I am in EMA and get 70 coins (not BA with 20 coins).

    The 's' at the end needs removed.

    Needs to be changed to show the level of incredulousness with which I read it in my mind whenever I notice it. Should read:

    You aren't Ozyman Tremble Weaklings?!?!?!
    Log out now, you imposter!!!

    I noticed that whenever a tournament ends we are notified via a pop up message that says something like: "The tournament has ended. You have achieved 14th. place." The period after the 14th is incorrect.

    I'm having that same problem too. This is a big pet peeve of mine, since it is such an easy fix.

    The "Prepare For War" side quest has a grammar mistake.

    It's not "Late Middle Age". It's "Late Middle Ages".

    Text is to big to fit. That's why the last "s" drops off.

    Swap it out for an Alabaster production Zack, that will solve your problem, AND give you a leg up on the game. You're welcome. :p:D:D

    Some minor bugs related to Arctic Harbor:
    1. The progress bar is always black.
    2. "More information:" doesn't seem to show anything.
    3. No alert when promethium is ready for pick up.
    Not sure if these also apply to Oceanic Terminal.
