  • Re: Separate language codes for different Englishes

    Purists need to realize: it's never about solving, but reducing errors.

    One thing we need is a way to detach the apostrophe from the quotes key. Also good would be to switch to guillemets. Such things are the job of simply anybody who cares enough.
  • Re: Upcoming Competitions?

    Some people simply get more turned on by ideas than money. Personally I feel sorry for anybody who doesn't, but that's just me. In the big picture though I would say that competitions are much more useful to observers gauging the state of the craft than to those hoping to milk their winner.
  • Re: Upcoming Competitions?

    Would you rather those expenses be subsidized by the competition losers?
    Not the losers, the submitters. I once did the math: it would add less than $10 to the submission fee. I feel this is totally worth it to avoid what is perceived by some people to be a shady practice.

    BTW my purpose in consistently bringing up this flaw has always been not to shame the TDC but motivate it to find a better way. The TDC does good work, but we can all do better.
