We seriously need to get a spell checker "installed" or however it works. I've been to sites, much less elegant ( :rolleyes: ) than this one and they have them. I know it takes the fun out of correcting other people....but it would be so much easier to communicate...PURRTY PLEASE...with "special sauce" on top.

Yeah I don't see it getting used too often..

...and AI isn't advanced enough to know what should stay and what should go as an automatic thing... I'll take a look at the spellcheck modification, see if it's something harmless (and optional) enough. ;)

Like icka said; I use dictionary.com when I can't spell some words. Also, if you use firefox you can add it to your search bar. Alternately, you can use word as a form of spell checking. I often use it to type lengthy posts/replies. I've yet to see spell check as a vbb mod, but it would be a nice feature, for some our our more gramatically challenged users. Maybe it'll cut down on the incorrect and over use and of elipses as well.(you know I had to add that in.:))

A few of my diffrent boards have spell check added in as an option for posting messages...

I think it's a good idea, but not practical for the users on this site. Mostly cuz, like others said, it wouldn't get used.
