    Default Question on Spelling Errors

    I have always wanted to know if you came across a layout in the gallery and there was some spelling errors in the journaling or title for that matter would you tell that person or just let it go. Personally I know everyone makes mistakes but would you be offended if someone said something. I truthfully would like it if someone told me, just so I could fix it before I printed it out. How does everyone else feel...Would you want to know? If you saw one would you point it out to someone? I'm just curious.

    personally it wouldnt bother me if i was told id made a spelling mistake - if you started on my layouts you'd probably be there all day correcting them cos i know my fingers tend to type a lot faster than my brain thinks at times...my pages are riddled with spelling mistake lol

    but some people may be offended, many members here do not have english as their first language and spelling in another language is fraught with spelling mistakes

    also there are many spelling differences from USA english to UK english ....ahhh the joys of a share language lol

    i would just leave it as some people may take offence....but if its in mine by all means tell me i love to laugh at myself

    hands up how many people have spotted the spelling mistake in one of my sale kits in the store....shhhhh evee dont tell them which one

    I wouldn't mind either. That being said, it would scare me to let someone know as I don't want to offend anyone. I came across one awhile ago that clearly was misspelled and not a UK/US English thing, but I just couldn't let the person know.

    I would not be offended, so if you catch one of mine, let me know. Just start of real kind and sweet, Like " I just love your layout, it is the best I have ever seen, but......your spelling stinks!"

    Default My 2 Cents

    I did have a typo on a layout of my daughter........ I was glad when it was pointed out to me, so I went a fixed it before finishing the project I was working on.

    I can see how some could be offended, especially with the language differences between us. I think if you want to tell someone, send them in a PM and first tell them everything positive about their layout. Use good tac and I think everyone is better to accept your comments.

    Hey Croppie, You are the only one I tell about spelling errors...but being your Sis I know you won't be offended and hey I think you caught one of mine. I don't think I'd tell anybody else. I see that most wouldn't be offended and I definitely agree that it would have to be said in a nice way...I recently saw a beautiful layout in the gallery and I can't help but to think, would that person want to know...I don't feel right about pointing it out then I get to feeling a little quilty that I didn't say something. It's kinda like if you saw someone you really didn't know with their zipper down, would you tell them?
