A lot of people, including me, Have messed up a lot on spelling. Any chance of adding a spell check to the Editing tool box?

  • Can't you to Microsoft Word or another program that has spell check? Tak 22:20, 24 August 2006 (UTC)
  • Yes. But you have to admit, it's time consuming. --Jabbathehuttgartogg Jabba'sDesilijicClanTattoo-SWFF Jabba'sDesilijicClanTattoo-SWFF 00:09, 25 August 2006 (UTC)
  • Making good and well written articles takes time though. Tak 01:18, 25 August 2006 (UTC)
    • Yes, thats true. I just stick with the copy-paste-copy-paste thing. --Jabbathehuttgartogg Jabba'sDesilijicClanTattoo-SWFF Jabba'sDesilijicClanTattoo-SWFF 17:35, 25 August 2006 (UTC)
      • I wouldn't rely on any spell/grammar checking software. They would certainly correct "acces" to "access", but there are things that only human intelligence can spot. Such is for example, "your right", which should be "you're right", and a lot of miss it. I would use Wiktionary or to check spellings you are unsure are correct. - TopAce 16:38, 27 August 2006 (UTC)
        • Without showing off too much, I can usually pick out every spelling error in a page, because I'm halfway obsessive-compulsive about that. You could just leave me a message on my talk page to check for spelling. Atarumaster88 Jedi Order (Audience Chamber) 14:29, 30 August 2006 (UTC)
