RAN vs RUN[edit]

The phrase is not RAN from.

The correct phrase is RUN from.

As in "this group has run from then to now."

Either of the following would be reasonable: "this group ran from then to now", or "this group has run from then to now". The tag "Ran from/to:" is an abbreviated phrase to begin with so it's lacking sufficient context to say which of these would be more correct. On the assumption that most readers would read it the first way, "Ran" is the convention we've adopted on WikiFur and there are dozens of other articles on the site (for websites, comics, TV series, etc.) that have it phrased that way.
Thank you for your comment. --mwalimu 20:00, 5 December 2008 (UTC)
