A quick question regarding grammar

I'll rid of this thread as soon as possible.. Didn't want to bother asking amongst the generally community, since there's quite a few bright people right here... Can't find an absolute, defined rule for this, so I am just asking in hopes of understanding English a bit better...

What is the usage rules for "its" vs "it's" ?

I know it's means "it is" but I've been docked on grammar for using "it's" in some places where I'd normally use it is..

Thanks :3

it's = it is

If you can use it is or it has then it's is correct!

anything else is just its

Example for it's

It's been good to know you. Contraction: it has

It's nice out today. Contraction: it is

Example for its

The archer is known for its ability to fly.

Alright, thanks a lot!

I'm gonna leave it up for a bit, just in case there's anything else to add (or if anybody spots any particularly gross mistakes in my posts..)

Indeed on both fronts..

I'm not going to be grammar-perfect (because it is a game forum), but it is definitely a good opportunity for me to work on it...
