If you go at least 2 weeks without being punished, a strike will be ignored.
Should replace "ignored" with "dropped". Less confusing.

If you believe you have been banned in error, contact one of the administrators on IRC, or by private message after the ban expires.
"expired" not "expires"

Simply "For those of you who can't figure this out" would work better.

7. Don't post a topic for something you haven't made yet, or something you want to be made. You should at least be at the point where you can show screenshots before you make any posts about it. At the same time, don't make posts asking for people to make something for you.
Needs direct rule quoting clause. Pointing out that screenshots are needed is one thing, but we don't need people quoting whole rule paragraphs.

9. Don't bump topics pointlessly. If a topic is more than three weeks old, ask yourself whether your post adds to the conversation or you have a good reason to post in the old topic. The following are _NOT_ good reasons:
"whether or not" would be more appropriate than just plain "whether".

With this in mind, remember that all WADs posted on these forums will be criticized. If you don't want the public tearing apart your WAD and telling you what you did wrong, don't post on these forums. However, if you'd like to get feedback on your WAD, and suggestions on how to make it better, you're in the right place.
"If you don't want the public tearing apart your WAD and telling you what you did wrong, don't post on these forums." should be, rather, "If you don't want the public tearing apart your WAD and telling you what you did wrong, don't release your WAD on these forums."
