why is the Correct Spelling-list unavailable and when will it be available again?

MTFBYU Droideka

  • Proabaly because its pointless. It would have almost every single article in the wiki on the list. Jasca Ducato 20:13, 30 May 2006 (UTC)
  • It's actually very helpful because it identifies the specific spelling errors. For example, "proabaly" in place of "probably". --SparqMan 20:35, 30 May 2006 (UTC)
  • There are a lot of English words that can be misspelled. The list was pretty long the last time I viewed it, too long to be ideal. - TopAce 13:02, 4 June 2006 (UTC)
    • It's far easier to use, or write and check text in Word or Works, with spell checker. Works even has a built-in dictionary - Kwenn 11:54, 5 June 2006 (UTC)
  • I'm not positive, but I believe they shut it down because it was putting too much load on the server. RMF 14:42, 5 June 2006 (UTC)
    • Special:Maintenance was removed in MediaWiki 1.5. "These tools were, ironically enough, not really maintained." -- Darth Culator 15:38, 5 June 2006 (UTC)
  • Well thanks then. Maybe I'll find something in Wookieepedia where I can help. --Droideka 16:38, 5 June 2006 (UTC)
  • You know something; why doesn't Wikipedia and all that have a spell check at the editing pages. I think that would help out a lot!

  • Speaking of correct spelling, what exactly does MTFBYU stand for? Sorry, sorry, I know, it's irrelevant, but I couldn't help pointing out the irony.  :) --Thetoastman 04:02, 18 June 2006 (UTC)
    • May The Force Be Your Umbrella? -- Darth Culator 04:28, 18 June 2006 (UTC)
    • Oh my god, I'm so stupid....:-D I meant MTFBWY! "May The Force Be Your Underwear" would be funny, too, by the way --Droideka 10:39, 19 June 2006 (UTC)
