I am inquiring about a possible spellcheck button that we can use while we're posting. I'm sure I dont just speak for myself when I say that we all aren't expert spellers and that we dont like to read other people's posts with tons of errors. If you find my idea to be impractical I propose plan B.

PLAN B- Rid the world of those teachers that suggest that they taught us how to spell.

I go with Plan B.
Honestly, I don't think it's too hard to read peoples' posts, and I have a feeling this feature would take quite a bit of coding and time.

I think we are big boys now and can spell correctly. If you don't know how to spell a word correctly, look it up on dictionary.com. If you have a long post, copy and paste it into Microsoft Word so it will correct all that good stuff for you. Whenever I don't know a word, I just throw my misspelled word into an ichat message so it corrects it for me quickly(I just had to double check how to spell "misspelled").

-However, a spellcheck button would clean up posts very nicely. I've never seen a forum with spellcheck.

Ok, here's a couple of routes you can take.

1. Type your post in word.

2. Learn the language well enough that people will be able to understand you without using spell check.

3. Get firefox and find the spell check plug in.

Alright, I think that says enough. I'm going to see if firefox has a spellcheck plugin.

I just use

Dictionary.com


That way not only do I know whether I spelled the word right, but I aslo get to see if it's the meaning I want.

Yep! Thats what I use. Its really great.

A little off topic, but another cool reference site I found is Answers.com. You can put in any keyword you want, and instead of giving you a list of sites to search through, it gives you actual iformation right away. Really helpful!
(I saw that Talio mentioned it in another topic, but its just really cool. And, look! We're in the links under "Nerf"! Yay!)
