XTree Forum Header

Posted By: Andrew Watson <>
Date: Feb-13-2000 3:38 a.m.

I normally don't post on the XTree Forum, even though XTree was my first great love.

I was being a picky bastard about the heading of the ZTreeWin Forum. The English was a bit Mexlish. I decided to look at the header on the XTree Forum to see if I could pick up some ideas for ways to modify the ZTreeWin Forum header. What I found was that the English here is, how should I put it, even more interesting. Is Germlish the correct term?

I am not trying to be nasty. It's just that I can't stop myself mentally redlining things when I read them. If the header was modified the little "ding!" wouldn't go off in my brain every time I visit.

The current header is:

Come and join the XTree Forum, it is intended for discussion of any topic related to XTree and the XTree Fan Page itself. You are kindly invited to contribute your comments, questions, suggestions, and whatsoever you'd like to state or ask regarding XTree and related subjects.

Please note, regarding any issues related to ZTreeWin (the great Shareware XTreeGold clone for Win9x/NT), you should place your posts not here, but solely to the ZTreeWin Forum from Victor Garcia's "ZTreeWin Unofficial Homepage (Z.U.H.)" :

Go )www.serve.com/vico/bbs1/config.cgi for any ZTree-related postings.
And stay and post here for any global and XTree-related subjects!

My suggestion for a modified header is:

Come and join the XTree Forum. It is intended for discussion of any topic related to XTree and the XTree Fan Page itself. You are invited to contribute your comments, questions or suggestions regarding XTree and related subjects.

Please note, you should not post any issues related to ZTreeWin (the great Shareware XTreeGold clone for Win9x/NT) here. These should be posted to the ZTreeWin Forum on Victor Garcia's "ZTreeWin Unofficial Homepage (Z.U.H.)".

Go to www.serve.com/vico/bbs1/config.cgi for any ZTreeWin related postings or stay here and post on any XTree related subjects!

I'm not claiming this is great prose. I didn't want to change the basic form of the header (even though it says the same thing three times). However, I think it reads a little better than the original.

I hope this doesn't make me too unpopular with Mathias as I really appreciate what he has done here.
