FIXED: typo on user sign up page

    Hello. My name is Dawn Dees, and I am new to HubPages. While creating my new account, I noticed within the pop-up on the website for the password prompt, an error in spelling. The word "distinctive"  has a couple of crossed up letters. I thought you all may want to have someone take a look at that since this is a publisher's website.
    Thank you for your consideration.

    Respectfully,
    Meshico Dawn Dees

      It sounds like you maybe referring to the RECAPTCHA we use to make sure things are not posted by bots.
      This is an intentional security measure.
      You can find out more about RECAPTCHAs here.

    Thank you Matthew. I appreciate your timely response.
    I understand that web design issues do arise, and that there are costs involved with the rendering of such. I am new and have no clout within this community as of yet. There is a world of knowledge and leadership within this particular forum hosting site, and I am particularly fond of being a member. The error is apparent when you go to the "Signup For Hubpages" page; after which you are prompted to enter your username, then, enter your Email address, then click on the box for entering your password. When you click on the box for your information related to choosing your password for this site, there is a pop up box to the right of the page that suggests how to choose a password. In this suggestive box, the word "distinctive" is misspelled. In said box, the word is spelled "disticintive". This is commonly overlooked and I can understand why, maybe, you thought I was referring to the RECAPTCHA which is also commonly misspelled.

    Thank you for your time.

        While you are fixing typos Matthew, the MTurk bonus letter is outdated. Please get on that. tongue

    You are welcome. It is my pleasure; simply dumb luck that I caught it.
    Have a pleasant night.

      Dawn,
      This has been forwarded to our engineering team.
      It should be a simple fix, so it will hopefully be addressed in our next build.
      Thanks again.

    Excellent! That just tickles me pink that I was able to give you all something else to do. Thank you Matthew. I am happy to know right off the rip, that there *really* is a support team at HubPages.
    I will keep my eyes opened for more opportunities to help make the HubPages site ├╝berfanatically-wonderiffic!

    Sincerely,
    Meshico Dawn Dees
