Guys, your splash page is your calling card. Your chance to make an impression. Currently it's riddled with the kind of errors a fifth grader would make.

So, how about a line edit of the entire site?

Here, I'll go first.

Before:
Mazdaworld was created with the intention of providing a home for those wishing to share and receive sound advice and opinions on there Mazda's. Anyone who might be in the market can gain insight and reviews from actual owners on nearly every model ever conceived. Most importantly to us here at Mazdaworld, members are not only allowed to, but encouraged to express exactly how they feel. You will not find this a political correct forum now nor ever. Far to many internet forums have a "big brother" staff watching over them. Here at Mazdaworld we believe that if someone tells you that 2+2=chair then you should stand up and bitch smack them. You gain new friends, and possibly new enemies, but above all, you will have fun. So go ahead, pull up a chair and join us

At the time only a domain existed, but the great divide of 2006 showed a mass acceleration of future plans was needed. In order to get the site operational long before its planned service date some things were over looked in favor of speed.

By the time you read this the new version will already be posted, however, it will not remain for long as with the upgrade the splash page shall be changed anyway.

-The Joker
Mazdaworld Federation - Commander In Chief / "The Godfather"

"In an Alex Ross-drawn, Paul Dini-penned thesis, psychiatrists ponder that perhaps the Joker is sane and fakes insanity to keep himself out of prison. It is suggested that he is completely in control of himself but is a savage sadist, and uses his disfigurements as an excuse to terrify and murder his victims. Ironically, the doctor who came up with this theory was Harlene Quinzel, whom Joker later transformed into his insane accomplice, Harley Quinn."

"Grant Morrison's graphic novel Asylum suggests that the Joker's mental state is in fact a previously unprecedented form of 'super-sanity', a new mode of perception to cope with the insanity of the times."

Good try, Miller, but I could spend days pointing out spelling and grammar mistakes within the framework of this site - it's not just the splash page that's important.

It's cool, though. For even appearing here, I'll probably be banned outright anyway. Good seeing everyone!

Duncan, You shall not be banned so long as you are not here to cause trouble. You are of course welcome to purchase your own MW.net t-shirt or hoodie.

Saint, Millers inquiry was handled before even a reply post was made.

All, I find it quite sad that people concern themselfs with parts of a word rather then its overall message. I admit some of the site was thrown together in a hurry, and many sections will be updated when our anniversary comes to pass.
