Spelling/Gramatical Errors

With a brand new forum, it's to be expected! Here are a few I've noticed:

First off, the descriptions for the forums seem to go on and off with punctuation. Some have periods, some have nothing.

Second, Games Talk doesn't sound right, maybe it should be something like Video Game Chat or Video Game Talk.

Also, the description for that forum header should change to "Want to talk about games? Just post in the forum for your platform." from "Want to talk about games, just post in the forum for your platform" Here I would also suggest a change to something like "Discus the old and the new about your video game favorites! (Or maybe not so favorite )"

Next, "Got a scoop about an up and coming release, let us know here." under the Game News forum should be changed to "Got the scoop about an up and coming release? Let us know here." Or, once again, be changed completely to something like "Get the latest news in the gaming industry, or post your own!"

And "Area to chat about games written for the PC" under the PC Games forum just doesn't seem right. Maybe we could change it to something like "The place to chat about games made for your PC or Mac."

Then, "Talk about the latest in MMORG or those simple flash puzzles you see all over the place" under the Online Games forum should be changed to "Talk about the latest in MMORPG or those simple flash puzzles you see all over the place."

Then, "For those who enjoy reminiscing here you can talk about those golden oldie classics" under Retro Games forum should be changed to "For those who enjoy reminiscing, you can talk about those golden oldie classics here."

And Portables Games just doesn't sound right at all. Maybe Portable Games would suit better? And it's description should be changed to "Discussions about games on the portables such as the PSP, DS, etc held here."

The forum header description for Hardware should be changed from "Games aren't a lot of use with out the hardware to run, chat and compare system specs here" to "Games aren't a lot of use with out the hardware to run them! Chat about and compare system specs here."

The description for Console Hardware should be changed from "Talk about mods, console accessories and stuff" to "Talk about mods, console accessories, and other stuff in here." Also, I can't see this forum as generating too much activity, I'm not sure. I know there are a lot of console mods out there, and I know there will be more for the new gen were currently in transition for, but how much can that really be? I won’t decide yet, but I'm thinking the forum may be best if deleted.

And lastly, the description for Mobile Phones is very out of order >< Should be changed from "With more and more games being released for mobiles share experiences with fellow gamers." to "I DON'T EVEN KNOW." hehe, I can't think of something that would quickly describe the forum for talk about mobile phone hardware. My suggestion is to completely remove it, since mobile phone hardware probably won’t generate too much activity anyways.

I know how much work goes in to creating and building forums, and I must say this seems like it was done in a bit of a hurry. I like the layout, but just don't think it's much optimized for maximum activity. So, I've created my own!
