I've noticed a few spelling and grammar mistakes as I've used the site, and I thought I would put them here so, hopefully, someone who can make such changed will see them. It might seem sort of nitpicking, but some have been really annoying me, like the repeated misspelling of 'automatically'.


Editor Application Sent:
Your application has been successfully sent and we be reviewed as soon as possible
It should say: Your application has been successfully sent and will be reviewed as soon as possible. With 'we' changed to 'will'

About TVRage:
In the Search window enter for example "ep buffy 7x22", this will redirect you directly to that episode in stead of the main show page
'Instead' should be one word, not two.

Person Editor Application Accepted:
Contributions Will Updated Automaticly
'Automaticly' should be spelt 'Automatically'

UBB pagep:
Will automaticly Determin Width if image exists
Automatically should be spelt as above and 'Determin' should be spelt 'Determine'
Will "hide" the text, will be visable when highlighted
'Visable' should be spelt 'Visible'

My Schedule:
(Include Yesterdays Schedule)
'Yesterdays' should have an apostrophe before the 's'

Edit Episode Information:
Season 3, Episode: :
Two colons for some reason
AirDate
Should have a colon, as all the rest do

Editor Settings:
(Note: Approvals not approved within 36 hours will automatically become available
There is an opening bracket but no close bracket and for some reason on person editor settings automatically is spelt wrong again, but not on show editor settings

General Forums:
Please report any bugs or errors you might of encountered here
Saying 'you might of encountered' is very bad grammar, it should say [you might have encountered'


Also, I don't know if this is intentional, or if it's just me even. But on the forum for a show I edit, someone has posted a topic and it doesn't say (Editor) under their username. Does that happen with everyone on the forum for the show they edit? Or is it just a random mistake?

Yeah ok it is already on the second page, but there was a spelling mistakes topic already -- in the Help & Support forum tough.

But it would be better to continue this thread and let the other one rest, not that there are two topics acitve on that...

Woopsy, didn't notice that. I didn't think to look in the Help & Support forum.

On the show forums, it will only say 'Editor' under the name of whoever is the editor for that show.

There is no close bracket at the end.

Contact:
We can be contacted at the following Adresses
Adresses should be spelt Addresses, with two d's.

Privacy Policy:
collect and save your IP address to help diagnose problems and administer our Web Site.
Pedantic I know, but the other bullet points have capital letters at the beginning and this doesn't, also the top two have full stops, but the bottom two don't.
Personal Information: Users are required give us their contact information
There should be a 'to' after required.
Demographic And Profile Data
I don't believe that 'And' should have a capital letter.

Copyright:
Two instances where TVRage has been spelt without the capital letters, ie. tvrage.

Quick Info:
Episode Information: Will give you information from alias and the episode 4 from season 2
'alias' should have a capital letter, it is the name of a show.
Exact Information: Only shows that matche exacly will be given.
Match and exactly are both spelt wrong.
Analyze Rules: (Classification of show
There is no end bracket.

Blogs:
No Entries Found For January
It says no entries for January on every month with no entries, instead of "No Entries Found For November" etc.

Submit Recap:
Notes: A Recap needs to be a full description of what happend during that episode
'Happened' is spelt incorrectly.

Editor Settings:
Currently No Pending Contributes Waiting
Not sure about this one, but surely it should say:
"Currently No Pending Contributions Waiting".

Friend List:
Add Member in your friend list
Rather bad English there. It should read: "Add Member to your friend list".

FAQ:
Aight.
I assume this is meant to say "Alright".
Submission guidelines:
Networks shuffle episodes around alot,
Also, alot of
"alot" should be changed to two words: "a lot". It is good English to use two words than just one, alot is not actually a proper word, it is just commonly misused.
Atleast fully read,
"atleast" should be two words: "at least"
General FAQ
Writer, story, screenplay.. what's all that?
Ellipsis's should have three dots, not two.
Allright
Alright is spelt with only 1 'l'
The people behind the teleplay change nothing or very little to the actual story
"...very little of the actual story" is what it should say, or "The people behind the teleplay make very few, if any changes to the actual story".
Can I use TVrage as source for my bot/script (for example to show the latest/upcoming data in a program I'm writing)?
TVrage should be TVRage.
Using those will save you alot or coding work
Again, alot should be two words
keep working when the TVrage layout changes
TVrage should be TVRage
it saves alot of bandwidth
alot - a lot
Wait a few hours and check your inbox
No full stop at the end of the sentence
How much points are my contributions worth?
'How much' is not very good English, 'how many' would be better

RSS: Whazza
We'll be adding the ultimate filtering system later on, but for now you can pick between alot of predefined presets.
alot - a lot
By default the list will include tonights episodes.
There should be an apostrophe in tonights.
GB = Great Brittain / England
Britain is spelt wrong, there should only be 1 't', and it shouldn't say "/ England", that is likely to severely annoy Scots and the Welsh.
Ehwell, that'll be all for now. I'll post more stuff if any questions arrive.. enjoy!
"Ehwell" should be two words, and an ellipsis has three dots.


Again, I know that this is rather pedantic, but as I've used the site I've noticed things and waited until I noticed enough before posting. If I notice anymore I shall post again.

Indeed, I give credit where credit's due, which it clearly is; I'm just pointing it out so it can be fixed.

The form of adding a guest star to an episode (probably some other forms as well) looks this way:
Show Name: <here goes the show name>
Show Name: <here goes the episode name>
Person ID: <here goes the actor's ID>
Person's Name: <here goes the actor's name>
Character Name: <here comes the edit box>

Shouldn't the second label read "Episode Name"?

Yes, I do. That's why I haven't listed things that I would say are spelling mistakes, like 'favorite', without a u in it. All the things listed are things that are wrong in both British and American English.
