Hi!
English is not my native language, and I have a couple of sentences that I would like for someone to check.

1. Become a saviour to the people.

2. To cause unwholesome impact.

3. Because of his fascination with the girl.

4. Her little sister is chosen to take part in the games.

Thank you for your time

@thegirlinneedofhelp,
The first 3 don't have subjects. The last one's verb form is incorrect.

Now, do you see the errors?

@thegirlinneedofhelp,
1. I think that is a complete sentence. It is what I would call a directive. Please go to the store for me.
Be a roll model for your classmates.
2. His emotional outburst tended to cause an unwholesome impact.
3. Because of his fascination with the girl, he did not hear the teacher.
4. Her little sister was chosen for the games. (past)
She is playing today. (present)
She will be playing next week. (future)

@thegirlinneedofhelp,
1-3 can be correct, though the context utilised is key here.

4 - Her little sister was chosen to take part in the games.

@coa999,
Jespah has already pointed this out. 1-3 aren't sentences, they're sentence fragments.

A sentence makes sense on its own, in order to make sense more needs to be added.

Become a saviour to the people by eating cornflakes.

To cause unwholesome impact just leave the door open when you're having a ****.

Because of his fascination with the girl Ponderer was banned from A2K.

Now they're sentences.

Jespah has already answered this, every post since then is redundant, (including this one.)

@izzythepush,
How did you get the idea that I was banned? Let me remind you that you are the one who told her that you knew she was "physically desirable."
I might add that your language around girls is disgusting.

@Ponderer,
I was just giving an example of how a sentence may end, that's all. Don't blame me for someone starting off a sentence with Because of his fascination with the girl. Where else was I supposed to go with that?

People who are offended by foul language don't tend to be offended by racism, sexism, fascism or anything people should get offended by.

@izzythepush,
"...giving an example of how a sentence may end, that's all." Give me a break. What kind of weasel answer is that? Be advised, if you say more about me or to me, I will finish what I didn't say now.

@izzythepush,
So it amuses you to slander me? What you implied was the same as when you said there was a name for old men who are fascinated with young girls. You have no concept of my meaning of "heart to heart". So you slandered me for using that term.

@thegirlinneedofhelp,
In regard to the first sentence, it is an imperative with an implied second person subject (you, thou).

(You, Thou) become a savior to the people.

@Ponderer,
I don't consider it slander at all. If anything I was pointing out how your behaviour could be interpreted, and giving you a bit of a warning.

Your behaviour since has been quite creepy.

@izzythepush,
I challenge you to back up your assertion and quote what you interpret as "creepy". Go ahead. I told you within the last few days that your game is ,and has been starting trouble with me. You try to weasel out of your remark about me by saying you were just finishing a sentence. Don't think that you have upset me. I am calmly waiting for you to back up another defamation with evidence. You keep trying to show some " intelligence " by posts like your above sentences. I know you will answer with your own words rather than showing me examples of mine that you consider "creepy".

@izzythepush,
Should you reply with anything other than evidence of "creepy" behaviour, you will again go on "Ignore User".

@izzythepush,
I think if a poll were taken about the comparison between our answers to thegirlinneedofhelp, your reply would be considered very creepy.
