Is there a chance of having a spell checker on the reply and new thread boxes? For people like myself who are crap at spelling.

Might be a challenge for you :D

thanx

The one that ticks me off the most is the following depressingly frequent display of etymological ignorance. just for the record and so that there is now NO good reason to cock this up ever again....

There - as in descriptive of a particular place (physical or temporal) as in "over there" or "Once upon a time there was a happy little spark called Carter..."

Their - as in something belonging to them

They're - as in the contraction of the phrase "they are"

In summary and for instance, if someone were to ask you "where are the pipe-fitters today?" your answer would of course be "They're over there ----ing it off in their portakabin"

Phew glad I've got that off me chest.

Why not just install a spellchecker add-on?

At least that way, you can use it on any forum you visit (and any other website where form filling is required).
 
i'm afraid there are no other forums but this one, number 1 electriciansforums.net !!! only joking, good idea though, might get one myself, still pending on the idea btw

Can one be put on here as soon as possible because the standard of spelling and composition of postings on here is starting to go down rapidly.:eek:

Why not compose your post in Word or other software that has spell/grammar checker, then copy and paste in here, when happy with it?

To be fair we're just an electrical forum, no tests will be done on spelling or gramma, my own too I hope!
