AskMe about spellcheck software

I swear there was an AskMe within the past few days in which the OP was looking for a way to differentiate among spelling variances in names (e.g., Steven, Stephen, etc.) and some responder pointed to a tool that the responder had made that did just this. Anyone remember it? I can't find it. Thanks.

Firefox vs. Mefi spellcheck, irregardless, and y6y6y6 trolling

Hey, can we have the spelling "judgement" added to the spell checker? Cripes, of all the words we'd ever need on MeFi.

Okay, I know that this qualifies as a "small, specific, and/or immediate problem" but it seemed like a cosmically (comically?) significant (or at least very mildly interesting) omission to me.

are there any members here with Deviant Art accounts

I've seen members ask about metafilter members with accounts on other sites like myspace, last.fm, and the like. I was just wondering if there are any members here with Deviant Art accounts, who'd share a link? I've been wandering about looking in the jewelery section and thought it would be nice to peek at and fav some of you guys from here.

Also? The spell checker isn't working in metatalk.

If there is no spell check, disable the button

Mr. Haughey, if you've disabled the Java spell-check feature, shouldn't you remove the “Spell Check” form button form Ask MeFi?

Just FYI. Unless spell-check still works for that area of the website. Then disregard this post. Thanks!

Did the spell check button on MeFi comments go away?

Did the spell check button on MeFi comments go away? Has this been discussed already and if so will I be made fun of in the comments for this post?

Missing Spell Check

Is anyone's spell check on AskMefi just not showing up? There is just no icon for the spell checking tool (showing up for me). I'm using Firefox 1.5.0.7 on a Windows XP. Thanks.

Missing Spellcheck?

The spellcheck button has disappeared for me, in both the blue and the green. And the spellcheck on MeTa posts isn't working also.

I'm testing out a new ajaxy spellchecker

I'm testing out a new ajaxy spellchecker here on MetaTalk for the next couple days. Let me know if you find it better/more useful/buggy. If all goes well, it could be carried over to every textarea on the server.

Spellchecking More Inside

Oops: The Spellchecker in AskMe apparently doesn't check the "more inside" section (and thus it is embarrassingly revealed that I know how to spell neither "precocity" nor "curiosities"). [MI]

spellcheck should check for more inside

When posting a question on AskMe, the spellcheck checks the initial question textarea, but not the "extended description" ("more inside") text.

Pony request for live spell check

PonyRequestFilter: does anybody else (other than amberglow) perceive a rise in spelling errors since the deployment of live preview? Is a live spell check viable?

Spellcheck Bug

Malicious Insects: Starting today, as soon as I click Spell Check when posting a comment with Firefox (version 1.03 in Fedora Core 3) my browser immediately crashes. This didn't occur yesterday or previously in the same environment. Also, doesn't happen on my Windows XP machine with Firefox 1.03.

Now that I think about it since I'm on Fedora Core 3 instead of Windows or a Mac, I'll probably just have to live with it.

Spellcheck needs updating

How about adding some frequently used non-words to the spellcheck, for example, "blog".

Update Spell Check

Would it be possible to have the spell checker updated to accept some common words used here? Mefi and Metafilter (and all other variants thereof) get constantly tagged as misspellings, as do commonly used words like "snarky".

No big deal if it can't be done, but if it could it would be quite appreciated.

Mozilla crashes in spellcheck

There has been discussion about this before, but I'm wondering if at this point I am the only one having this problem: Mozilla 1.1 in XP crashes about every other time I try to use the spell checker in MeFi (MeTa seems to behave better).

Spell Check Problem

Spell check problem - if the text being checked has character entity sequences > or < when spell check completes they will be replaced in the textarea with greater-than or less-than signs. My browser is: Mozilla 1.1 -- Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020826.

Spellcheck flagging 'MeFi'

Isn't it internally ironic that when you run your post through a spell check, it gets caught on the term "MeFi"?

Spelling Errors on Front Page Look Bad

The front page represents us to the world. If we're going to take the trouble to post to it, can we doublecheck our spelling?

Is there any way to customize the spell-check a little?

This is really more of a nit, but a nit is a little tiny bug, I guess .... Is there any way to customize the spell-check a little? I'm getting really tired of seeing Mafia every time I spellcheck MeFi.

Spell check doesn't work properly on opera 6.0 for linux

Spell check doesn't work properly on opera 6.0 for linux. The checking works fine, but if you replace a word after the run is complete the entire comment text gets replaced by the last corrected word (owch).

Spell check

Misspelt words: please, either use Spell Check before posting or slink away silently if you make a boo-boo. Don't post a comment with the corrected spelling and your apology for it. (Do write the word three times to learn how to spell it!)

Spellcheck Function Not Functioning

The spellcheck function still appears to be dead. I saw that Thirteen already mentioned it but thought I might go ahead and mention it again.

It was a pretty cool feature. Now it just bugs me. :)

Announcing spellcheck

There's now spellchecking and an improved comment/preview system that doesn't require reloading pages to edit. If you find any bugs let me know. I think the spellchecker.net popup works in most major browsers.
