Spell check question

Postby Fan C » Wed Jul 16, 2014 10:49 am

So I've noticed the word 'playa' is not in the spell check dictionary for this board. Not a big deal as one can ignore the underlining, however it seems a little ironic.

Yeah, the spell check here is telling you that you're doing your eBurn wrong.....just a little ironic.

Maybe it's built into the browser, but when I type stuff spelled "incorrectly" here in the subject box, the word is underlined in red automatically. *Playa*, and right now as I continue typing, looking at that word, it is underlined in red. A scarlet word, if you will. Maybe it's an NSA glitch and it's words that are flagged for their agents to look up later. Hey, "NSA" is underlined in red here in the subject box... Well, of to the "What's my conspiracy?" thread.

There is no spell-check for the board, it's built into your browser. When you get the "misspelled word" squiggle under something like "playa" or "ePlaya" or "birgin", you can just right-click (PC)/ ctrl-click (Mac) & add the word to your browsers dictionary.

LOL.. apparently playa was already added to mine. No red line for that word. Makes sense.. I've used it once or twice.
