Just an idea actually to promote the site further - how about adding a link on the Wikipedia Puma page? I think thats how I found PP1 in the first place.

EDIT - Just looked and it's already been done. D'oh!

Great, more than I expected. I abused my company printer and stuck two under windscreen wipers on my way home.

It's nice to do my bit.

Yeah I might print off a few and park next to a puma and pop one under the wiper.

It'd be embarracing if the owner came back as you were doing it, though!!

To echo someone else that mentioned the mistake - which is more grammatical than spelling....

Whilst not wanting to sound like a grumpy old man... I can be a bit picky when it comes to spelling & grammar (and am not always correct myself).
However, if advertising a forum/community to prospective newcomers it would be nice to have it presented properly.

Puma Owners - there shouldn't be an apostrophe between the r and the s. Arguably there is a case for the apostrophe after the s - but that is something of a grey area.. and as the apostrophe is almost universally used improperly I suppose a case could be made that it doesn't matter.

All that said, I will try and have a few in the car, just in case!

:ok:

Is that correct though expatscot?

The way I understand grammar is that you use an apostrophe to denote ownership and since the club, the web site and the Ford Pumas belong to us then the use of the apostrophe would appear correct?

I could be wrong though. Us engineers aren't known for being the best writers!

I've just spent the last ten minutes debating with myself whether you're right, or I'm right.

I'm usually the first to pick up on grammatical errors. I write as a hobby, so pride myself in my techinical writing ability. If you'd been wrong, believe me, you would have seriously regretted posting... but... I believe you're right. The trouble is, I can't do diddly squat about it as I'm at work, and once I get home, I've got to figure out where the hell I saved the original file...

The apostrophe is something of a multi-purpose creature which, no doubt, contributes to its frequent misuse.

It covers the "roles" of plurals, contractions and the 'possessive' (amongst others).. but the personal/ownership role involves an individual, not a group or body. In its use here it is denoting a group of people that own a certain car and although that is a plural (in a sense) the apostrophe should not be there.

It is a complicated one to be sure... something along the lines of the 'greengrocers apostrophe' or the 'Oxford comma', although I must admit to making use of the Oxford comma myself.

Yes, I can empathise... my gut reaction was that the apostrophe was redundant in the case in question, but I had to do some checking and head-scratching before reaching the decision to post.

It is not a straight forward case.

I know that languages - those in living use at any rate - 'evolve', and thus some trendy types are saying English should be simplified and streamlined, made closer to its phonetic sound etc. Some are even in favour of allowing txt spk at schools, but, frankly, these people should be shot!

:P

I'm not sure about this one, although I do tend to agree that in this case, use of the apostrophie is redundant.

How do other sites spell 'Owners Club'? I bet most don't use the apostrophie. In truth, I'd say that both with and without is acceptable, but including it looks messy I think.
