Well it is a bit disappointing, since I have put a lot of effort into fixing up the English on the site and was under the impression that it was being recognized in some way. I suppose I'll have to settle for the love. (As a professional translator and editor, I can assure you that there is no glory in editing!)

Just a quick note, that you do not need to change "his" to "their." Een has that fixed so the gender of the player changes it (to her) if necessary. I personally think it's not hurting for it to be "their," but you don't need to do that anymore.
I would like to note that I prefer gender neutral pronouns on this site if no gender has been selected, and find it disapointing that this practice is being discouraged.
