Subject: needs more editing

Written By: Johnny on 08/16/05 at 12:02 pm

I really love the site, but there is one thing that needs a bit of work.  There is a tremendous amount of spelling and grammatical errors in the posts, not those on the message boards, but those on the main site.  I was reading the Why I Love the 80's sections and within the first few posts the number of errors was so high it was slightly annoying.  I'm no English teacher, in fact I think I myself have pretty bad writing skills, which makes it worse that the errors are so obvious that even I notice them.  Not a major issue, however correcting the errors would make for a site that was much easier to read.  Even if it stays how it is, it's still a great site, really good work overall!  Keep it up!

The "why I love the 80s" section might not be a messageboard like this one, but is eseentially just a bunch of messages from people.  It's not designed to be tightly edited at all.

Some of the other sections however should have typos and such removed, and will at some point.  I've created scripts for the people who review sections to edit mistakes that have been approved.  I just haven't enabled it for all the pages yet.
