(Marv: his computer does that, he can't help it and he doesn't know how to change it. He said it in another thread, the mentor assignment thread ;))

Never mind me, I don't have anything to add to the discussion  evil

Okay, thanks Marvin!

I still want to make the point that it's not an offensive spell. I will remove the part that explains how it can be used as such. I don't really want to make changes to pre-existing entries, because since this is my first entry, I'd feel like I'm trying to out-do those who have been here much longer. I could scrap this spell too and start fresh with a new spell, although I really think that this spell would be more useful for sphere II than Fire Control.

I haven't made any edits yet, just so everyone knows, because I am going to make them all at once and then work from there. So far, here's my understanding of what I should change:

-Make the spell less general (I plan on removing the offensive bits, and maybe 1 other.)
-Change how the spell is cast, according to Mina. (Possibly, debating on this)

What else?

Though this is a bit repetative, I\'d suggest reading through the old spells to find exactly what they do.   While there is nothing wrong with repeating a spell by different means, if I remember correctly, it would suck to basically copy a spell and have your entry shot down because of it (I did that unknowingly for my first spell).  Perhaps look at the finer aspects of root spells for this one and try to avoid those or look for different methods to solve them?

Sorry, I'm slightly confused. So basically I should check the spells on the site to make sure that I havn't copied a pre-existing spell too closely? Or is it the method of casting that I am looking for? undecided

I never mentioned the method of casting (casting procedure).  What I was talking about was spell effects.  I think you're just not used to the terminology here yet. 

In addition to that, yes, you should always make sure that there aren't already spells that are very similar to what you have in mind. 

It might also help to read the spell threads here in this forum, even those where the spell was never approved.  You can often find some useful information in them.  Just be careful not to go back too far, like more than a year or two.

You could still give offensive examples, but regular every-day-live ones as well perhaps?

You wouldn't be trying to outdo those that have been her longer. The currently entry is simply outdated and should be updated at some point anyway. Of course, given how Fire Control is currently level I it could be rewritten (at a later point) as a sphere I spell of course and this one could be the sphere II alternative.

Oh, and if you're going to read the entries on the site you might want to give this thread a look ;)

Yeah, the terminology is something to get used to..
Okay, I'll check through some of the threads and make appropriate changes, although I do want this spell to be independant from Fire Control, although they can be similar.
