Arrow please, people, check your spelling.

Okay, just a little vent/pet peeve here... but so many people here on WI make typos- I understand that, like pressing the "d" key instead of the "s" key, and making "toast" into "toadt"... but I've seen some HUGE ones, too... too many to name.

Just, please, before you post, check your spelling to make sure it's okay- and check for "they're," "there," and "their", too- those mistakes come up all too often for me, like:

"I went over they're and saw there ball and I returned it to them because their really nice."
^That's not right. It should be:

"I went over there and saw their ball and I returned it to them because they're really nice."
^ Now, that is right.

Please don't think I'm being rude, it's just that I'm starting to get a little fed up with the typos on here...

And text-talk. "Plz dont typ lyk dis, 'cuz its reely hrd 2 undrstnd."

If you have spellcheck on your computer, it should catch simple spelling mistakes by underlining the misspelled word in red. You can simply right-click on the underlined word and it'll give you spelling suggestions.

So, if you made it this far without falling asleep (I tend to ramble on ), thank you for reading, and be sure to check your messages before you post them.

Rep if I can give you any! I agree! Especially on the text-talk part. I rarely use it. When I do,I'm in a rush or its just like 'Lol' or something. But it bugs me to see an entire post like this "So wyd? R u sk8tin? U lil sk8tr boi."

The spelling and grammar also bug me to. I get it if the person is in a rush or is like six,and doesn't really understand,but everybody 8 and up should be using proper spelling and grammar. I use Safari,so I know when I make a spelling mistake because I get the little red line under the word. Like if I were to type some random letters and numbers, I would see a little red line under it.
Great thread!

Default Re: PLEASE, people, CHECK YOUR SPELLING.

I can agree with the no text speak part.I know it is frustrating when people use incorrect spelling or grammar, however this is a site with children in it and they may not be up to par on the level of grammar/punctuation/spelling that others are. Also lets not forget that many adults have difficulties with these things as well.

While I can understand the frustration, I just relax and let the smaller things go. As long as the post is able to be read I do not think this is a major cause for concern. I would also hope that anyone who has problems with reading/writing does not take offense to this thread as I am sure the original poster did not have that intention.

Default Re: PLEASE, people, CHECK YOUR SPELLING.

That's a good reminder, I think I had to read a little slowly on the text talk. xD But anyways, some people make very simple spelling mistakes that other people may still be able to understand. Yet, not everybody is perfect but I think it's okay to make a few mistakes and typos.

That's a good reminder for the text speak part.
But I think that it's okay to make some spelling mistakes. It's not really that big of a deal as long as you can read the post. I do get annoyed when people write things like 'cuz' and stuff like that, but as long as it's close to the original word then it's fine with me.

I agree that everyone makes typos (I'm one of them), or perhaps has a learning disorder, but what I'm trying to say with this thread is that some people make typos, use text talk, or "TYPe LiKe THiS," just because they can, and it's really starting to tick me off. The purpose of this thread was to remind us all to use spellcheck, check for typos, etc., so we don't end up having people think we're little kids (and so what if they are little kids? It's important to learn proper spelling from a young age. )

Good point, we can all make an effort to check typing & spelling.

Let's keep this discussion friendly.

Thanks

I do try to check my spelling but sometimes it slips. I try to limit my text-talk to things like 'lol' and 'omg'. And even the moderators and adminastrators make typos. I have caught them several times.

Yes, I agree. Text talk and major typos can be hard to read or get annoying, but innocent mistakes like confusing the "there,their,they're" or "your/you're" are fine with me because I can tell what they are talking about by the other words in the post.
