Default Favorite and Favourite? Color and Colour?

Hey all! Doesn't this bug you sometimes? Like Canadians, (It kinda bugs me) that when ever you type Favourite it comes up as it is spelling wrong. And Colour, it comes up as if you spelling it wrong. Does this bug you? I think that maybe all of our right spellings should be added into the dictionary here on WI *NOTE, i do add it to the dictionary, but it still says its spelling wrong* Because there are more than one way of spelling it.

That's a good idea! (: We have a lot of people from Canada here, and it would benefit them. They have to remember that not everyone using the site is American.

This is an excellent idea! And for those who might be in Britain too, like Mum vs. Mom, and other sayings they use. Equal treatment for everybody, not just one country or such. Although it's not really that detrimental, it surely is annoying sometimes!

Some people might get discouraged or such from this, although not likely, because their country's spellings are considered incorrect, but the USA's are considered proper. Those people might feel like they would be left out or something. This is a great idea, and would be very helpful if implemented. Have a smashing day!

I think it might just be the computer, because it's your computer that has the spell check

But great idea!

Thanks for posting Twilightcrz! Yes and for Britain too! Those two were just examples!

Oh! I just tried something and on the computer Mum isn't spelled wrong! So i think it is just those couple of words and Neighbour and Neighbor *the first one is the one that is spelt wrong*

Yes, that's true! There are plenty Canadians, some British, a few Australians, one New Zealand user and me (I'm from Trinidad.) I think all these countries have different spellings from Americans. I know Americans make up the majority, but there are users from different countries! Maybe you can have two tabs: American spelling and Spelling from everywhere else (It'd have abetter name ) That way, everyone could have their correct spelling.

Default Re: Favorite and Favourite? Color and Colour?

Yes, that is very true. I hate how sometimes I type "colour" and it says it is spelled wrong. That is a terrific idea for those kind of words to be added to the dictionary. After all, there's always going to be a different way of spelling something!

I love poetry, and I once wrote one about colour (color) and asked some people (all Americans) to edit it. They said it was fantastic, but I spelled everything wrong! It sure does get annoying when I type a certain word and it always is wrong. This isn't detrimental, but it does bug me!!!
