Spellcheck: Update requests. (in Public Record)


AdminG Beee March 30 2007 5:41 AM EDT

If you have legitimate requests for spellcheck updates then this is the best place to ask for them.

Post them here and we'll get around to them when we can.

RoBF, SF. guess you already got those :)

Flamey March 30 2007 6:01 AM EDT

We had a thread about this, but I can't find it :\

I would've made a list to put in here or in the other request thread (previously)

OK, your username always flags up as incorrect G, and it would be nice to have words like 'armour' and 'colour'. No offence to our American friends, but it would be nice to be able to just write a post, knowing I've spelled the words I use correctly as per the country I'm from and living in; and to have those words accepted by the spellcheck!

Possessives. If you add "'s" to anything, it is automatically flagged.

And "QB". All of the QB names are fine without the QB, but the moment you use the QB (as in posting a transfer record), it is flagged.

There's more, but that's just off of the top of my head.

Adding the QB names to the spell checker is something we should avoid. The correct spelling of a word doesn't change nearly as often as the name of a QB ;)

Personally, I prefer to go to the theatre, not the theater.

I note that there is already an ispell-british. Would it not be possible to incorporate that dictionary to take care of all the British spellings?

The word "Repo", as in "Repo Man", should be added.

It's not really a word, but it is used often enough (See Repo Man for an example).

Also, it would help when sending messages to and from my Repo Mage character. :)

lvl for the tat sellers :)

Brakke Bres [Ow man] April 5 2007 7:01 AM EDT

add the word "lvl" to the spell checker.
Why?
if you copy paste the tattoo stats i always get a spell checker warning about "lvl"

Yeah, incorporating the British English dictionary would be nice, my vote goes with that.

Any way to add them simply as prefixes?

And manually changing the spelling once or twice every 3 months is a problem?

Since there is 1 or possibly 2 new QB's every 3 months.

If the spell checker is mistaken, don't panic -- as long as the fraction of mis-spelled words is less than 0.15, you'll be fine.

QB tags are no big deal and it's unlikely to cause a post to be rejected.

AdminShade April 5 2007 1:14 PM EDT

Also, BoTH can easily be written as BTh, the way Jonathan originally intended to...

Perhaps it's not CB related, but people do deal in other currencies in currency exchanges.. so perhaps

the whole British dictionary, so i can spell color with a u (colour) :)

QBOddBird April 26 2007 12:24 PM EDT

I would like the word 'yay' or 'Yay' added, please.

AdminG Beee April 26 2007 12:52 PM EDT

Only if you promise to use it in proper context.

ie: a branch of the Tai languages
