I don't have autocorrect on my computer, and i sure am too blind to use my phone for stuff like this, but on this site -- this site only -- i reread what i have posted and words have CHANGED. i just had to correct "deluge" to "delude" in one of my posts. in several, i find that the word "to" is missing and the space where the "to" had been is held by an extra space. that could happen once but how about five or six times in one post? it's very odd.
i am perfectly capable of making typos but this goes well beyond that. is this happening to anyone else?
Yes this happens. I have noticed that there's a typo detector in the site. I have one with my browser but sometimes the site overrides my typo detector. When my browser detects a typo the word is underlines in a red dotted line and when the site detects a typo it's highlighted in light red.
(my working hypothesis) I suspect that comments on this site are occasionally slated for review (someway, somehow) and when reviewed the site's auto-correct kicks in and edits the post.
Yes. I especially notice it happening to my profile bio. Once in awhile words go missing and what I wrote makes no sense anymore. I just have to go back and edit every now and then. I've had whole comments in posts or responses in messaging go missing as well.
If anything, I'm becoming more creative with word choices. As a published author, I'm constantly editing.
Last night I made it to Level 8. Wrote a "Zippy-dee-doo-da" ditty. I'm terrible at writing headlines. So, I changed the headline four times:
Made it to Level 8! (boring)
Excitement followed by a T-shirt (kill me now)
A Small Celebration (zzzz....)
Looked up synonyms for "small," and settled on a lively, amusing headline:
I have noticed it and it could be me. We all do typos. What I think it is really is this site correcting (or trying to correct*OR your app or computer trying to do the same. It all depends on what is in the programming. Sometimes I find that the word "up" is always wanting to be "un" or vice versa. It's like some insane built in auto correct or AI is operating. In many posts that I don't pay a lot of attention to women run ads that read "am a down to earth woman and am looking for my true love long term." Where oh, where is the word "I?"
Another example here is that I did not mean to go bold here. Something happened and I'm not sure what it was. I'm letting it go rather than redo it.
This happens to me also. A while ago I noticed my profile had all the 'to' words missing. Also the edit functionality wasn't working for the longest time, so anything you noticed that needed correcting after it had posted was unable to be fixed. Youre not crazy, it's a glitch.
