    Ladies and Germs :winky:

    May I plead with you tonight?

    A lot of us are using smart devices to make our posts on PPS and other social media platforms. In using these devices, often times the predictive text doobry kicks in and what you thought you had typed turns out to be something completely different. Most of the time, going unnoticed by yourselves.

    But when the next family member reads it, sometimes they are left wondering what the fercucking hell is this person talking about when reading posts.

    If you are posting on Smart Devices and similar, please, please, please, think about checking over the spelling of things (especially paint/sundry items that are relevant to the post) before hitting the post button.
    If you do forget to check, please remember that you all have a ten minute post edit time to correct typo's.

    Correct spellings of products etc helps the forum search engine to find a post that one day you may need to find in a rush when you need help on a job.

    Thank you all :doff:

    Agree with you. My dyslexia ain't helping either, but I try my best. Helps if I take my time although very short of that.

    I'm in the same boat mate, thank god for the spellchecker!

    My lads the same as me but as I tell him its content over spelling thats important and if his teachers pull him up for it I will send the wife up the school to sort them out.

    Bit late for me to start getting in contact with any associations. Not really what I want o want to do now at my age. I would rather just carry on and not worry about it. I'm more interested in paint and sanders. Lol. All I can do is turn text back grounds yellow when reading big articles which I do sometimes, and take my time writing here. Many are way worse than myself.
