Hiya guys,

I write articles and reviews for a magazine called Fortitude Magazine.

Here's the Fanedit article I wrote this month for the site.

Neat little intro article. Might want to have an, um, editor, look at this sentence.

One other thing I noticed is that 99% of the article is impartial, but then there is this sentence:

Illegally obtained material such as workprints leaked/stolen from the studio are strictly prohibited, edits containing such material will not be listed on in our database.

Suddenly the article becomes endorsed by FE.org.

Right, when you say "our" database you are personalizing it like you are a spokesperson. Then the article is an ad or an endorsement not journalism.

It could be fixed easily with a few changes-

Illegally obtained material such as workprints leaked/stolen from the studio are strictly prohibited, edits containing such material are not listed in the database.

I also thought the use of the word "Our" stood out, now you mention it.

Assuming I am "you," then okay...the use of the word "Our" stood out.

It was probably just copy/pasted from our FAQ/rules section and [MENTION=4587]FatherMerrin[/MENTION] overlooked changing the 'impartial typo' :-)
