A few typos, but what can you do?

We're not having an edit button because discussions in the forum can take place more or less in real time, and having the ability to edit posts after they appear could create problems in some situations.

We've got the next best thing, which is a panel directly under the text entry box which shows you exactly how your text will look when you hit the 'post' button. The odd typo doesn't matter here - we all do it from time to tome.

Strangely, when I read your post, I didn't notice the 'matbe' typo at all, but only the grammatical error (the one I assume FE was alluding to in his post). It was only subsequently, after you'd mentioned it yourself that I saw it!

I suppose that shows that we all proof read differently, and so errors creep in. Personally, I always print off a hard copy and 'proof' that - and find that it helps me if I print it in a different type of text to the one to be used on the site.

FE I now do that before printing the full amount. I read through a printed copy and it has helped. The real problem is I do the news sheet on my home computer print off a copy which is then used to run of the rest down at the church so if I spot a mistake then it is too late to change it.
