Want to check your spelling in a post?

Look for the icon on the format bar. That will show you a preview window with the misspelled words highlighted. No auto-correction (yet), but hopefully you'll find it useful. There are a couple bugs yet, but I'm working on those as time permits.

Could you maybe add a current, local date/time stamp on the page. Sometimes I really get confused by whatever time it is we're using on the site (like now, it's appr 8:10p.m. [2010 for military types] on Tuesday, 7/20 here in So. Cal, and the posts are saying it's early on Wed, 7/21).
Thanks loads!

Denise, That's a good idea, and I'll put it on my list of things to work on. The only problem is determining a users time zone. Not everyone fills in their location in their user profile. I'd probably have to add a field for the user to enter the number of hours offset they are from GMT (which is what we use on the forum) It's ironic that the server is actually IN California! [:)]

Please look into IESpell. It is available via

It is a very good spell check option that installs into Internet explorer.

That way it is available on all the boards you go to. Most of the time people do not use spell check even if it is available. My opinion, if you cannot ignore the spelling, ignore the post.

I'm beginning to think that some people misspell postings on purpose. Maybe it's a sad side effect of the IM pseudophonetic. Maybe it's a stream of conciousness thing (I get caught on that one a lot). Maybe its a lack of understanding of the sender's role in communication. I don't know.

I will easily read through a couple of typos in a posting as I find those in MY postings. Questionable spelling or grammar is even worth reading twice to get the message. After that it becomes a matter of how badly I want to understand the writer of the posting. That depends on the sincerity of the posting and my mood that day and is a VERY individual choice!

For those of you who like analogies: Often in this forum we have talked about setting the value of your pens by the finish you apply, the way in which you display it, and the price you set on it. Your postings should be viewed the same way. Their value to others is directly proportionate to the care and effort you put into them.

Now will someone help me off my soapbox!?!

Well said Tip, now you can get off the soapbox [:D]. I try to lead by example and yet when I get passionate about a subject matter, I tend to mis-pronounce my keyboard talk. [:l]

I tend to type with a mid-western accent. I have yet to come across a software program that can correct this strange anomaly.
