The little icons that go with each warning are HILARIOUS. I think my favorite is "excessive use of passive voice" XD

AO3 and fanfiction.net should formally adopt their use, don't you think?

Hahahahaha "excessive use of passive voice" is my sin. I can't get my thick skull to understand how to talk English without the excessive use of passive voice.

I used to have that problem. Now my poor ficcers I edit for have to deal with my self consciousness of it.

It's good for your ficcers to have a concern beta. My problem is that I don't have awareness of my use of passive voice. I run "Grammarly", my English grammar and plagiarism checker, and the program always "accuse" me of doing it. I just don't know how to turn a passive voice into an active one. I feel the more I use English the more careless I'm being with grammar. ...my last English class was at 1987! I need to go back to school. ;)

I find myself wishing they came in sticker form. I would buy a hundred sheets of them and stick them all over stuff I read before selling it at the second-hand bookstore XD

These are funny but I do not know what head hopping is.

Head hopping is where the author changes POV at random, whenever they feel like it. Like in the middle of a scene which is 90% from Jane's POV, suddenly we slip into John's POV for a paragraph or two. Very distracting and hard to read. Not to be confused with third person omniscient, which is a legit POV where you are in everyone's head all the time.

Ah never used Amazon and only know of the site existing and when the news notes when it has to pull controversial stuff from it (there's a recent book by a prisoner named Pickton that's in the news here). I would say as a pro wrestling fan that first one about plot inconsistencies is badly needed weekly. Ditto the Sniff/Smile/Snarl promo warnings for guys who shout their entire scripted lines or smile smugly (see Ryback and Roman Reigns). Nice share!
