I am losing my faith in this fandom · 12:47pm Oct 29th, 2015

Today I read a fic from the Feature box titled Equestria's Garden. I must not understand the rankings and criteria to get in the feature box, because this is one of the most unreadable pieces of garbage I have read in a while.

Don't get me wrong, the premise showed enough promise. A human in Equestria orders a (oversized) birdbath and pegasi come and bathe in it. Even alicorns drop in, and eventually earth ponies and even changelings stop by. Yeah, kinda funny. I usually enjoy culture clash hijinks stories.

However, what was so off-putting was the mass butchering of the English language. If you're going to publish a story on the Internet for the whole world to see, at least run it through a spell checker of some sort. Or look up words in a dictionary. It's not that hard. When one of your chapter titles contains the word "loseing," you have a problem.

Maybe the problem is me? I thought the feature box was for notable fics. Notable and notoriety are entirely different things.

I've wondered for a while, but never really had a chance to ask; is the feature box automatically populated based on an algorithm somewhere, or is the list chosen by moderators? I can only hope its the first one.
