Seeing as to how this wiki needs lots of help, when I see a popular problem, I'm going to write a 'guide' as to how to identify it.

A run-on sentence is a sentence that runs on and on and exceeds the limit of a regular sentence. Most contain a word count of 16+ words. They can easily be identified, but can be somewhat tricky to clean up.

Identifying

Identifying a run-on sentence is easy. They are large sentences that usually contain two or more 'ands' and can seem to take the form of a whole paragraph. Similarly, they can also contain ',s' or ';s' that continue the sentence as well. These will commonly appear in the 'Appearence' or 'Game Info' sections of an article.

Examples

  1. I'm candd and i like cheese and i think its the best thing in the world besides minecraft; which is my favorite game.
  2. Mini Soda has a leather shoe and alot of rust he has eyes of ants and he also has soda as his nose he also has springs that are very long.On his springs is cheese. (note that this example was taken directly from a page)

Fixing Process

Fixing can be more difficult than identifying. The best way to clean one up is to replace any 'ands' ';s' and ',s' with a period. Some words may need to be ripped out in order for the sentence to be grammatically correct.
