My quick rewrite:

Notice i've trimmed a lot of your wasted prose: more description (i.e. adjectives and adverbs) is not always better.
~Already addressed, methinks~

I think they stress "filling X number of pages" in school, which gets translated to (among other things) pontificating endlessly and over-adjectivizing. (Yes, I know, that's not a word. But the English Language is my friend; we razz each other here and there. :P)

Also, I'm noticing Kyrbi, that you're basically taking what people are saying and plugging it into a thesaurus. Your first example is literally a re-write of what he said with different words but meaning the same thing. That does not necessarily mean better writing. Example:

The second is longer and fancier, but it says the same exact thing with too much fluff. It just gets... tiring. It sounds too much like "epic" literature and poetry; like you're TRYING to sound fancy. A good balance between the two is needed; something like this.

See how it sort of incorporates both sentences, while still being both (semi)sophisticated and easy to read?
1. What does "tl;dr" stand for? I consider myself quasi-knowledgeable about many Internet memes and l33t speak, but I am as of yet unfamiliar with this one.

2. "Plugging it into my head". Fix'd. :P

3. Hmm... While I agree that, ultimately, if you just add adjectives and stuff, it's = lame-sauce. However, I also went to the trouble to reword whole portions and un-contort the grammar. Removed unfamiliar phraseology. Etc. Personally, (sorry to toot my own horn), I think I made it read more pleasingly and sound "better".
i.e. Took a "Frankenstein" and made an "Automaton". (bad example)...

Ok, real example:
Quote:

He was starving and sweltering; his thick cotton shirt sticking wetly to his empty stomach. He slowly wiped a thick layer of perspiration off his soiled brow, only to have it return seconds later. Curse the humidity! Having lived his whole life in a southern state, he was unfamiliar with this 'wet heat'.
His dog's expression was one of friendship and lack-wit. However, it suddenly reminded him why he was running through the heat and humidity in the first place, and he began to lope off again. His dog obediently followed, both trailed by drops of sweat; the only reminder of their passage.

Ok, that was a little 'over-the-top'. :P
But I took the crazy grammar/spelling, fixed that, gave some of the "empty" nouns some nice adjectives, then (took the liberty to) add character and reason to the paragraph; gave the boy (and dog, to some extent) personality.

If I must be succint:

There. Short enough? Most of the same comments = re-applied.

4. Well, quite frankly, it's Warcraft. What I am offering here (in this topic) is generally supposed be a lot like "epic poetry", with "flowery terms" and such. I mean, think of the flavor text for a hero in a generic AoS (or ToB/DoE/AotZ, most definitely not generic :P). Those are long and flowy, and sound pretty epic/poetic to me.

However, in other forms of writing, this isn't what we're shooting for. And you're right. In fact, I lay no claim to a universal writing ability (I've been told I write well, but hey, your family says a lot of things about you. :P). I look at authors like Orson Scott Card, Terry Brooks/Goodkind, or countless others and just stare in awe. They just write so well! And the way they write is so intriguing and engaging!
So yeah.

But yes, I agree; different writers have very different styles. As long as the spelling/grammar/phraseologies are intact, there's no "wrong answer".

But when I try to do that, it just doesn't feel right; it doesn't seem to fit at all.

So what's worse; mechanically follow the plot or mechanically shove in tons of bonus words?
I dunno. Post it here for us/me to see! (unless it's so-awexome-it-will-burn-our-eyes-and-minds-just-to-comprehend-it kind of writing. :P)

Bagh, only 23 metres., I don't mind. While I do dislike posting stuff and not getting credited for it (mainly ideas), and can understand the plagiarism problem... Meh, I'm cool with it. In fact, I'm (usually) interested to see in what direction other people take my stuff. Kinda like running a simple sentence through a translator 20+ times and seeing what comes out. :P (wait, wasn't that in the Off-Topic forum...)

Needless to say, from this point on, either request some writing, discuss what was created, or get out.
I object! If anything, I'm excited that one of my topics has gotten this much attention; moreover, I was able to inject just a bit of life into the zombified Story/Writing forum. :P

Also, (like my "Thunder Lord skillset!" thread), I'm all for taking up pages with debate quasi-related to the topic's subject in the most abstract of ways; it's kinda fun. And interesting, to say the least.

Ignitedstar said everything else I wanted to say and saved me the trouble of writing it, thank you Ignited.

Kyrbio, how is your paper work going (did you finish it? Or are you stalling around it?), I am waiting for the result of the sample I've sent you, but don't press your self for it, PM it whenever it's done.
1. I consider (good) model-making and/or advanced JASS programming to be one the most difficult arts (in Wc3 modding). It's all a matter of perspective.

2. Sure, you're stating your opinion. But people (almost everyone) has a tendency to say things like "you must all be morons if you don't..." or "I can't believe anyone who doesn't think ...". Stuff like "you must be bad at language comprehension", etc.
(NOT saying you or anyone else said anything specifically like that, just making examples)
That's the kind of thing that, while it puts your opinion out there (alright), it makes everyone else look bad for having other opinions.
(tooting my own horn, again, but) I always try hard not to be inflammatory. I use general terms (because there's always the one or two who don't apply), and try to "post" non-confrontationally. Unless someone ticks me off with stupidity. :P

3. Yes, thanks from me, too. Saved me a lot of time. :P

4. Yes, I'm stalling. Yes, I hate you and will never finish it. In fact, I think I'll save my only copy (copy/pasted to a Notepad) to a CD, microwave it, crush it to splinters, and scatter the dust across the world's oceans. Then I'll take my internet connection and unravel it cord by cord, then surgically insert it into the brains of newborn babies across the world. Then I'll ritually blind/deafen myself, so I can never encounter your text on the Internet (nor in any other way/shape/form), ever again.

...

No, I'm just busy. xD

Well, thanks all for the many comments... For those who've submitted requests, I *hope* to be getting to them sometime in the foreseeable future... Anytime between now and the Second Coming (do a search on www.lds.org if you're not familiar with that term). Yep, definitely before then. :P

Oh yeah, and ~OFF-TOPIC ALERT~ be on the lookout for the next Neutral Hero Addition! It's a Goblin, which 99.999% of the Wc3C population loves! (that's right, you know who you are...)

tl;dr = Too long, didn't read. (basically it means "The summary of this crap is:")

Quote:
Ok, real example:
Bad example. You took what I said and added so much unnecessary fluff. The boy isn't supposed to have character, he just is. You don't take a sentence and add 10 more because you want "character". And really, you just made the kid hungry and sweaty. And dogs can't sweat.

The shorter one is better, although "singular testament" is a bullshit term. You're going over-the-top.

Quote:
"now I can get a passing grade on this essay".
Lol, not at my school. My teacher will, quite literally, hand it back and say "This was shit." Fluff isn't acceptable once you reach 9th/10th grade honors.

I've never been a big proponent of fluffy writing. I do it sometimes, but there's got to be a limit, and sadly, more and more people seem to think more fluff == better writing, whereas it's almost always the opposite. The fluff should cushion your writing, not suffocate it in cottony adjectives of death.

Also, attempting to be "descriptive" can drive your sentence/paragraph off course. For example, you're talking about a tree- Oh look, flowers! And hey, a bird! Wait, that bird is near a squirrel who's on another tree- Hey look, more flowers! And another bird!

And so on. Obviously that's exaggerated, but do you my point? You want to describe X, and you end up describing Y, Z, 8, Apple, G, and Q in the process.

Alright, alright. Even though I said "keep up the discussion", I've realized we're going in circles. I made the mistake in posting that specific paragraph as an example. I will attempt to remedy that (although I can't think of anything equally short...)

Let me just say, that the paragraph could only be 'fluffed up'. While yes, that's a lame tactic, let me explain; the assignment was to write a "My Place" essay. A detailed description (5 senses) of a favorite location. I chose a hill in my backyard; some punk chose Hades (Erebus, the Underworld, Heck, etc). The aforementioned punk asked me to spruce it up, and I did.

However, what you must understand, is that the entire thing is just one big adjective-paragraph. So while I agree that "just fluff" is bad, understand that that's all I could do.

Now that that's cleared up (hopefully), I don't want to hear any more "that example is too fluffy and you write wierd" comments, 'K? :P

a) It's over 14,000 words.
b) I think the opening parts are really clunky and ugly, so you'd all stop reading before it got good.

I really like that you offered to do this. I hate reading badly written hero descriptions and tooltips in maps. If people are going to bother adding that much text to their game, they can at least bother to make it legible. Just getting rid of the spelling and grammar mistakes would be a huge step in the right direction.

I'm sorry if this is resurrecting an old thread or whatever.

No, that's ok. I wish you had some tooltips for me to rewrite/edit, though, instead of just a bump. But that's cool; I appreciate you appreciating me. :P

tl;read some.

Ok, so maybe I was kinda sorta lying about getting some sleep instead of joining these forums. But whoa. Your Jungle Troll topic is huge. I've looked over it a bit but I don't want to say anything until I know what's already happened.

And here's my perspective on writing/editing:
The editor is not the author. If your job is "writing," then yes, you can add your own details at your own discretion to improve on the concept. However, editing tooltips and dialogue, IMHO, requires a more hands-off approach. There is a definite market for this sort of thing (the time and effort involved does add up, and lazy people like myself can't be bothered to go fix everything!) Aeroblyctos on the Hive Workshop, for instance, could definitely use this sort of help. He's a brilliant and hardworking mapmaker, and he has (I think) pretty good storyline ideas, but he doesn't speak English very well at all and although all his tooltips and dialogue are understandable at some level there are glaring grammatical mistakes that would make all but the most novice English speakers cringe. Much as I'd love to fix it all for him, I probably don't have the time and he probably wouldn't give me permission anyway. I wouldn't be able to guarantee that I wouldn't simply vanish one day because of all the more immediate real-world events going on.

If my post itself is tl;dr, I will attempt to summarize:
Leave fluff out if you're fixing someone else's writing. It's his/her idea, not yours. Making assumptions about a character or adding in unnecessary information can cause problems.
That said, what Kyrbi0 offers is far from worthless; there are many brilliant mapmakers who simply cannot write very well. Even DotA:A tooltips have glaring grammatical errors that bother me whenever I see them. (Flame all you like about how horrible DotA:A is -- my point was that it is an incredibly popular map produced by a team of professional JASSers and the tooltips still suck.)

Ah, good to see you, cosmicat. :P And yes, I know it's huge. That's why I put links in the first post that link to important bits. (aren't I thoughtful? :P)
Is this the same "cosmicat" as on the Hive?

~On-Topic~
You're exactly right. I wasn't really being clear with my thread title, and as a result I haven't gotten the "business" I intended. Unfortunately, I cannot change the main thread title, but for now, regard it as a ~Spellchecker and Tooltip Thread~, effectively.

Default Yep

Yeah I have an account with the same name on Hive too. I don't use it much, though. I just add comments to maps now and then and pitch in a little advice if I can. I only do a little tinkering with the World Editor myself, though, so I'm far from expert. Then again, every so often I stumble upon something not everyone knows about (remember the Factory ability? )

So, yeah.

BTW is writing really super awexomely well an LDS thing? Because Brandon Sanderson and Orson Scott Card are pretty much my favorite sci-fi writers at the moment.
