  • Spelling & Grammer

    Hello all !!!!
    I'm not sure if I'm posting this thread in the correct forum but here we go anyway. Since I've been a member of this message board I've noticed that there are alot of folks that are pretty picky when it comes to spelling and grammer. What I'm saying is some folks get pretty ignorant and nasty cause of some mis-spelled words or some grammer errors. So my question to the moderators of this board. Is there anyway you can add a spelling & grammer tool on here? So that when you post a new thread or reply to one you can check your work to make sure everything is correct before you submit. It might be a reach but I figured I'd ask. I really enjoy reading this messageboard and I'm glad I'm a member. Heres to the Broncos Enjoy the season!! Can't wait till training camp. This is just a thought I figured I would mention. By the way, Tatum Bell will win the starting job in training camp this season then it will be time to unleash the BEAST!!!!

    Your question would probably be better directed at the Feedback forum.

      Dont worry about misspelling stuff, we all do it, some people are just picky, and some people like to joke around.

      It would be nice to have a spell checker though

              As TDK mentioned, there is a Feedback section where the mods are more likely to notice your thread.

              Anyway, another option would be to type your post out in Microsoft word and let it correct your spelling and grammar. Don't worry about it too much though. Most of us don't really care. As long as it's easy to read your posts you won't get hassled much.

              With that in mind, what's important isn't so much correct grammar as easy to read posts.

              Personally, using "U" instead of "you" is harder to read for me, but it's not uncommon.

              What really is toughest to read are runon sentences and huge block paragraphs. Really, just try to find natural breaks in your paragraphs and it won't be so imposing to whoever is reading your post.

              It's the whitespace bluespace that makes your post easier to read. It helps you keep track of where you're at and it generally just makes everything more readable. Of course, you also want to avoid writing tons of one sentence paragraphs, but making sure not to have huge blocks of words will help people not complain about your writing style.

                  I am a former high school English teacher. So I can say this:

                  This is a football forum, not a grammar class. While I have seen relatively few instances where grammar and spelling are criticized, the ones I have noticed have seemingly been for the following reasons: (1) Another poster has aggravated them, and they want to get back at them somehow, or (2) they need to get over themselves.

                  Therefore, don't sweat your spelling or your grammar. Do the best you can, and MOST of us will appreciate you.

                      I dont really have a problem with bad spelling or grammer, because I do this from time to time myself...what I think is funny however, is when people criticize others for poor grammer/spelling and then turn around and committ the same error themselves.

                      Or like recently when I spotted a poster (who will remain nameless) with a 'save the vowels' movement sig (aimed at people abbreviating and misspelling words) and his spelling was horrible, I counted something like 3 or 4 errors in one post. It was downright hilarious.

                          Honestly, this board isn't that bad it all when it comes to the hoity-toity's.


                          I'm a member of a couple that absolutley lambastes you for posting improper spelling or grammar.

                          They are relentless, and in the same breath they'll discuss about all sorts of messed up crap that would shock the devil himself. Just make sure you spell it right!


                          I feel like I have to preview my post a dozen times with those guys.
