comment How to elegantly convey the finer nuances of language in written form
I have to agree that this question is far too broad. It's also sorta asking for an open-ended list of writers who meet your criteria. I think. It'll generate a discussion, but no answers useful to future visitors. Can you pare this down to a more focused question?

comment Critique: Make excerpt more visual/flow better
Jerry, I'm afraid that requests to rephrase or critique very small amounts of text are firmly off-topic here.

comment Overuse of bullet points
• By "stack bullets" do you mean nested lists? If so, this may help.

comment Overuse of bullet points
• Welcome to Stack Exchange, where salutations and signatures at the end of messages are normally not required. • This question is utterly hilarious.

@JedOliver - Looks good, have tweaked it a little more. Reopening now.

comment How do I create a book on iBookstore without having a Mac?
Questions here have to be about writing, or they will be closed. This is your second question about computers; these can be posted on SuperUser or the Ask Different site (for Apple-specific questions).

comment Does this excerpt strike a balance between the formality of steampunk and accessible writing?
I've edited your title to bring this question more in line with our critique guidelines, but please revert my edit if I've missed the mark.

I think so; reopening. Thans for editing.

comment Essay critique: flow and how compelling it is
As per our critique guidelines, requests for critique need to have specific questions. Asking if something is compelling really doesn't qualify, and the fact that both answers so far address wildly different problems supports this. Do you have anything specific you need answered? If not, I'll close this for now.

comment What is the smallest amount of text that can be plagiarized?
I tried editing the title to reflect what I think is the intent of the question, but please revert my edit if my guess is incorrect.

comment What is the smallest amount of text that can be plagiarized?
@Jay - Since you're using my name here, want to clarify that those are not my comments and I don't entirely agree with them. My links were for information only.

comment Improving techniques independently: Description
The edits helped; thanks. You'd probably get better, more targeted answers if you were to tell people what, exactly, you feel is lacking in your current skills. How are your descriptive passages bad? For example, are they perhaps lacking in detail? Hard to follow? Uninteresting? Not relevant to the story at hand? (These are all chosen randomly and meant as examples only.)

comment What are the advantages of different date formats in resumes and CVs?
Welcome to Writers. Since the "best" format for dates is extremely subjective, have updated your title so that the question is more answerable.

comment Improving techniques independently: Description
You're still asking for people to list their experiences, which will generate a discussion rather than answers. I think this will probably be have to be closed.

comment Improving techniques independently: Description
I agree that this is too broad to be answerable. It's also asking for a list of writers to read, a type of question that's not only off-topic here but doesn't mix particularly well with Stack Exchange sites: How will people vote on the answer? loldop, are you willing to edit this to reflect Monica's suggestions?

comment Which e-book formats to use to get a larger readership?
It'd be helpful to know more about the kind of book. Mainstream fiction? Academic non-fiction? A memoir?
