Since I am being pestered to add all sorts of limitation and rules on incoming pastas, I present this solution. The Democratic Way (TDW) blogs! Vote for or against a new rule! Have your voice heard! (But only one voice, no matter how many are in your head...)

Rule Proposal #1: Proofreading Rule

Before you post your article to this site you MUST have proofread and spell-checked the document. This includes—but is not limited to—the proper use of capitalization, spelling, punctuation, spacing, and paragraphs.

If you upload a pasta that is terribly unedited or is a massive wall of text, you acknowledge that it can and in most cases will be deleted as soon as it is uploaded. You will then be warned about this and given a link to and this blog post for basic information on how to write better.

First time or hundredth time making a pasta, you should be able to write in readable and correct English, unless of course English is not your first language. In this case, kindly leave a message on the talk page explaining that and one of our editors can surely help you out without penalty to you.

Voting will be open for a while, and if a majority accept this, then it will be put into place and enforced. Leave a comment with either the word YES or NO, and then reply to your own vote if you wish to discuss your opinions. Main comments that are not YES or NO votes will be deleted.
