I signed up for this site called Postloop, and your supposed to go to this Post Portal first to see if your eligible to go to the main forums. You have to do 10 posts, a very good post with great english grammer. This is what the PostLoop email said: *Your grammar is too poor for Postloop. We need posters with excellent English grammar. Your account has been closed, as you unfortunately do not have what we are looking for. You will not be able to apply for reviewal again, and you may NOT create another Postloop account.* I have poor english grammer? Come on now! Im an Latin American, but been hear since 85, and I have poor english grammer? Now I cant go back in and try again Have you been to this site before? and have you passed or got rejected?

I am really sorry, but you do have spelling errors in your post. Correct spellings are "grammar" and "here." My guess is that there were spelling errors in your posts there as well.

Don't mind but i too agree with what owlings said, you know english is different thing and grammer is different thing. You know i am from India and my mother tongue is Hindi even though i don't know how to write hindi properly.

I'm sorry. We are not supposed to criticise people's English here but, since you are complaining that you were rejected, I have to comment on what I see. There are many grammar, punctuation and spelling mistakes in this post alone. If this is a sample of your standard of posting, then I can agree that it's not good enough for PostLoop! I've emboldened the errors in your text here: "I signed up for this site called Postloop, and your supposed to go to this Post Portal first to see if your eligible to go to the main forums." ... "I have poor english grammer? Come on now! Im an Latin American, but been hear since 85, and I have poor english grammer? Now I cant go back in and try again [missing full point] Have you been to this site before? and have you passed or got rejected?" Now, you may say that 'MyLot is different from other sites' and 'doesn't require good grammar, spelling or punctuation' or that '[of course] you paid more attention to what you posted for PostLoop'. However, when posting a complaint that you were rejected because of poor English, don't you think that it would have been appropriate to 'put on your best dress' for the job?

I actually missed one! No capital letter after a question mark: ("...before? and have ...) I could also point out that "but been hear since 85" should be "but I have been here since 85". 'Been here' may be acceptable in conversation but it is not so in written English.

I should have put 'NO Critizism' in my post as well.

In that case, what was your post REALLY about? If you stick to the questions at the end, it is definitely a 'poll type' discussion. You can't have it both ways!

I have never heard of PostLoop before. I do not always write perfect in responses anymore on websites. Doesn't matter to me as much anymore. However, if I knew that for a website I was interested in; that how I write matters I would pay a bit more atention. Don't be mad but in this post you are complaining that you got denied for baby grammer and yet this post has bad spelling, words used and grammer.

I've passed their "test" and got approved at the very first time! I think if they say, you have bad grammar, you should accept it! You have to improve your skills and go back to Postloop to get approved! Good luck! Have a nice day!

Hi Lxandra! I was approved the first time I joined Postloop. I have some guides in my profile if you'd like to read them. Anyway, when you post in the portal, I suggest you choose the topics that you really like. It may be the movies or TV shows that you enjoy. This way, you can easily relate with the discussion and your ideas can flow smoothly. Best of luck!

I think it was brave of you to sign up to write for PostLoop. I am aware that my English grammar is not correct.I've even had comments that my English is very simple. So I'm happy to be here on mylot to post. I'm learning more English as a student in an English course. So in another two years from now I hope that my English has improved. It's good to be here on mylot to share and discuss various topics. Have a wonderful day!

I got rejected from the site as well. I'm not too sure what they meant that my grammar was too poor. I wish that they did not use English that was so strong. I also notice that their members do not all use perfect grammar. I would think that "Application rejected" would have been good enough! Well, it's okay. I'll move on from this. It's their loss, not mine.

What do you by 'you may not create another postloop account'? Does it mean, you have been ban from postloop or what? -- does it mean, you're not allowed to create another account and apply as forum poster again? I want to know the truth... he he -- I have signed up on Postloop, but I didn't confirm my email address because I want to know all about Postloop. I read on the internet that there is one user of Postloop who keep complaining that she was been rejected. Now, I feel discourage about joining on that site... hu hu hu...

I got rejected as well. Reason? "Poor grammar and short posts." Still I do not see how my grammar could be called "poor". In fact, I would love to share some post I made and have someone judge it, but I know it would be pretty useless after all. Anyway, just wanted to tell that you're not the only one ;). I just hope that someday I will be approved at PostLoop because I'm keen to work hard and earn money from posting valueable posts at various forums to share my knowledge. Well, maybe someday...

I got denied once for the same English grammar reason but again they approved me in another trial. I am from India and speak Indian/British English. It is very easy to make money there but still my rating is down the average and I can't cashout. I am trying to beg other forum admins to give me a rating, so I could cashout.

I got approved there and had earned quite some bucks. Later my rating was decreased. I received an email which informed me of my poor English. Thus, i left there with a very upset feeling because i think my English is not that badf. It is a great site to make bucks but you must be very strict with yourself on grammars and wordings. There is no way for me to go back again.

Hello I have been rejected twice also.I'm sure that my grammar is not in needed level but I have a lot of desire to be there.Anyway my wish do not realize at this moment so I have to make some direct steps to increase my grammar skils and try again.I think it is not impossible mission but I need some extra time to do it.

That's according to their standard. Of course, different forums have their own standard. So this Postloop site is a bit snobbish. I'd like to try and see if I pass its standard. I am not a native English speaker and I am not perfect in grammar but we will see.

What is it about Postloop that you are so eager to be registered there. Is this another online job? Unless its a forum for the elite brainy, eloquestn ones, I don't think I will enjoy my time there for I just want to enjoy the simple online life and earn a little from it. If u really want to be there again, you can can use another email addy maybe and make a totally different profile from the one you had there before.

I have not joined this program yet. This is some thing very new to me. Yes, it gets pretty frustrating and disappointing some times. In fact, the responses are more automatic than actual evaluation of the submission. I have had some bad experience like that with another site.
