@idea from Viat
Hi there - I've noticed a couple of minor typos in helpfiles/examines (ie, under 'examine me', for watching it says eavsdropping instead of eavesdropping), but I can't think of any place to submit these.

A note on using @typo. Please, please, please put the word that is wrong and where you saw it. It is not enough to just put the word down in most cases. I have typos submitted with the misspelled word and that is it. I go to the location it was sent from and guess what, nothing to be found... days later I see it pop up on some random tv or sic ad.
If you see one in the ambient population, weather, sic ad, tv ad, npc description, etc. could you please write the word (or bad use of grammar or whatever) and what you see it on? It would save me and the other people who fix typos a lot of time and stress. Oh, and while I'm at it, everyone who doesn't know already should learn the difference between the following words.
its, it's - simple one really. Its is the possessive form of the pronoun it and is correctly written without an apostrophe. It should not be confused with the contraction it's (for it is or it has), which should always have an apostrophe.
your, you're - your refers to something you possess, it does NOT mean you are
threw, through - Threw is the past tense of throw. Through has a number of meanings, none of which have to do with throwing something.
AND coming only has 1 'm' !!
I know I'm missing some other ones that bug me.. I'll edit this if I think of them. *cackles* and I'm quite sure I probably made my own typo somewhere in this post. Anyone bitches about that and they get to meet my Gnome Cannon.
colour. It is C-O-L-O-U-R!!
Look: Not only do we reserve the right to butcher the Queen's language, but we've excercised it, AND shown a staunchy and stubborn refusal to acknoledge that life as we know and care about actually does exist outside the United States of Hysteria.
I mean Emerica.
Now pleause, crawl back into your moouse houle and take your coloured wourds with youe. They aurn't welcume heree.
