The bots have found 53 errors in comments in my Darlie Routier hub! Should I delete them or just do nothing or what?
The bot will have already made the corrections. Unless you want to change something back to the way it was (by unchecking the associated checkbox), there's nothing you need to do.
Editbot will improve HP as a whole in the long run I hope and that has to be of benefit to us all. Meanwhile I have a hub with 18 errors all of my own making. The hub? Apostrophe exercises for EFL students with incorrect examples! I can't see any way round this other than to delete the whole hub!
I had something similar and what I found successful was to go into "Edit", erase a word or two in front of and after the correction as well as the correction, then retype all those words. If Editbot goes through again, then I wasted that time.
Another way might be to use Photoshop or other software to make your text into an image or set of images, which Editbot can't change. That might be too time consuming.
How do I use edit bot, I was looking for it can you help me access this feature.
Edit Bot is an automated process so you don't have to do anything. If it hasn't checked over your hubs yet, it probably will get to them sometime very soon.
You will want to check they were in fact errors, go to the hub in normal view (not edit mode) and click the message at the top which will show the changes.
If your hub has been edited by editbot, a little icon will appear next to it on the stats page. You can then go to the hub and look to see if the corrections are acceptable. If not, you can put check mark next to the highlighted correction and it will go back to being the way it was. Otherwise, just leave it be. The corrections are made automatically, but they are not always correct!
What you should do is be really grateful that the bot found and fixed so many mistakes in your hub! ; )
Thank you I did see yellow box with check already there,
But when I looked at it directly it was not changed. I changed the suggestion. I think. Now it shows nothing to change.I would love them to change my errors with edit bot. Auto , am I changing it manually, or did they, should I have a whole H circle as Hub appropriate for viewing since errors are corrected.
No one should care about comments being incorrectly spelled or with poor grammar--those are meaningless and have no bearing on the content itself. As long as your actual work, Pollyannalana, didn't have 53 errors in it I wouldn't worry. [And I'm going to make a practice of "un-correcting" comment edits going forward, regardless of how crummy it looks, because that was THAT person's problems with language and spelling, not mine.]

Well I have done it. Over 600 hubs cleaned of the wounds inflicted by Editbot and the Bandaids posted all over my hubs to conceal the unfixed 'errors?@$5^'. No more bot robot symbols on my profile - Ahhh it is so...

I just wrote a hub, and I have edited it four or five times. Still (and as always), I'm finding errors with each editing. I know I am not alone in finding it difficult to edit my own work. Do you edit your...

I just emailed a comment to HubPages staff but thought I'd also ask the forum group. I have a lot of errors in the comments posted on my Hubs because I write Hubs read by students and by people who are not native...
