It's not a bug, but it's been bugging the grammar cop in me for weeks. On the movearmy page:


That army has begun it's journey to City, Country

So you are bugged by rounding and spelling errors??

At least I'm not the only one.

Other people worry about those inconsequential things like whether the game working or not. I'm more concerned about whether things are spelled and displayed correctly. I can't decide if it's a gift of a curse.

So that shouldn't have an apostrophe there? I'm pretty good with grammar, but mess up sometimes. What's the rule on something like that?

Apostrophes are for contractions and possession. I strongly recommend Eats, Shoots and Leaves by Lynne Truss.

It's a great read.

Should be a capital M on Mexico.

When you have a spare 5 minutes Mickey - well actually, not your fault. Doesn't Beezer add the cities? :lol:
