Haha the excuse being you're a Norway speaker :D Erwinner, with that remark I feel like saying your sentence is perhaps wronger than Kalah's ;)

nope I'm sorry mate, I am from Scotland and speak native English, in English you will almost always say we've got "new content for our site" not "new contents for our site", please read Cambridge dictionary gg hf lol

Since Erwinner put me KO once about a famous quotation falsely imputed to Voltaire (99,9999 % of french think so), now if he says "earth is cubic lol", I go gather evidence first.

I just checked with my colleague, who teaches English, and she says either form can be idiomatically correct depending on the form, but as I'm literally asking for contents (in different forms) for the website, it works better for me to use the plural form as it's the same as listing "a book's table of contents".

Haha come on guys, lets stay on topic, more content for the site to keep things going! :D

I like GreatEmerald's ideas on the technical side of things.

I'm still working hard on the H4MG, and am getting really close to having an initial version for people to test and play around with. Some nice advanced options that the H4 editor doesn't have :)

Here is a drawing from Shelly Garcia, Heroes 2 artist. It's a gift from her to Celestial Heavens and the Heroes community in general, after I showed her just how much her work is appreciated 20 years later.

Wow, this is great, I would love to hear your story!

That's absolutely correct. Otherwise it would be "table of content" and "the bottle content". It would be "content wanted" if it was a particular thing.
