Spelling and Punctuation Errors
« on: February 15, 2010, 12:28:25 am »
Inevitably, with the sheer volume of text we have in LORE, we're going to misspell something. So, when you nice people catch an incorrectly spelled word or a missing period at the end of a sentence, or maybe we just forgot to put a space between two words, please post your findings here and we'll get it fixed up in a jiffy. That's right, I said "jiffy."

Just to be clear is "jiffy" quicker than A.S.A.P?

Way down south where the watermelons grow, yeah. A jiffy is about as fast as a "new york minute." :p

From the Sects page for Pyrtechon:
Quote
The Daughters of Rage are a hushed secret around Roldem and the coast of Alindor.

There is no "Roldem," nor was there ever in-world.

From the [lore]Barbarian[/lore] page, the last sentence of the paragraph:

Constant exposure to danger also gives barbarians a sort of “sixth sense,” a preternatural ability to sense danger and doge attacks, and their running stamina is legendary.

*Emphasis mine.  Guessing it should be dodge.

LORE: Common and Unique Ships of Layonara

"Since people first decided to take that tentative and frightening step to travel across the ocean, they have been fascinated by its beauty and repelled its fickleness."

Should it read "repelled by its fickleness" ?

From the High Reaches Lore Page.

Third paragraph, second sentence:

"They constitute the only effective way of moving to move lumber from the forests..."

I'm guessing it should be one or the other: of moving...or...to move

I have been known to be wrong before though  :D

Throughout the [LORE]Rofirein[/LORE] subpages, "marshall" should be marshal (one "el").

Script, which subpages? I'm only seeing the misspelling on the hierarchy chart, which is a picture that Ed put there (and I'm guessing he'll need to edit).

Just do a global search and replace on the entire Lore database. Nothing could possibly go wrong... :p
