Was just browsing one of my articles recently edited for a network site, and stumbled upon the spelling of "for" as "cor" in one of the headings. Talk about an ugly little bugger..stuck out like a sore thumb! Just weird because I did read the new edit and really don't remember seeing that. Fixed it but just want to make the community aware. Anyone find mistakes after an edit?
Oh yes..and I go back and correct every one of them. Some are quite blatant and many actually make corrections for items that did not need to be corrected....in short, they created a problem where none existed.
They're good about allowing corrections, though, but it's a good idea to always check hubs after editing.
Interesting T2 and thank you for the input. Just strange because even before network and niche, I always went over everything with proofreading and grammar apps. All of my edits have been pretty minimal, some were brought over with no edits at all. What was edited I read over again. It would be a good idea for everyone to pay close attention to it..because that would look really bad to someone reading bad spelling errors with hubs on niche sites. Perhaps Google would frown upon it as well in rankings?
Hi Jesse, I don't see any edits done on your Hubs. Would you mind providing the link? It's important to us that we see our mistakes so that they don't happen again!
Hello, Robin thank you for the reply. I have had a total of 3 articles that were Hub pro, the green icons are still up in my account page and the changes made are still visible. I did correct it myself last night, but here is the article in question. Thanks.
Got it! Thanks. It was a typo when the editor was changing the capitalization error in the subtitle to APA format. I will make sure the editor knows. This is a perfect example that this process is about working together, and we appreciate that you are active on your article and making necessary changes. We of course aren't perfect and try our best to not make careless errors, but it does happen from time to time.
Thank Robin! Glad I was able to help. Everyone makes a mistake from time to time..I can't even imagine the scope of the editors work to be honest. It's great you and the other staff are so involved with the health of the site. Keep up the good work you guys are doing a great job. The new niche sites are amazing and I'm glad they are doing well. I am inspired to contribute more. Thank you again.

I guess this is fine. Well. Not really. It's slightly irritating. My cheesy meatball recipe just got moved to Delishably (yay) but was edited; words like "flavour" and "favourite" being 'corrected' to their American counterparts.Shoud I just let it go? Would it be...

As I plow through the lenses to become hubs, two of them I edited do not show the change date of the edit although the updates are visible. Since I am using the date to keep track of the edited lenses, I keep re-editing them but the original date never changes. Is this an issue on HubPages or a...

Do hubs with spelling errors make you think less of a hub?Is anyone else distracted by a hub that has decent content but several spelling errors or grammatical errors?

What are your thoughts about your hubs being eligible to be edited with Hub Pro?When we edit a profile on HubPages, when you scroll down you see an option to check yes or no to possible editing with Hub Pro. I was wondering what people think of this option, and do you recommend it?

Is it rude to point out grammar/spelling mistakes on hubs via comments?I've come across numerous hubs that have grammar and spelling errors, some minor and some littered with mistakes. Otherwise, these hubs would be interesting and will written in my opinion. Is it rude to point out these mistakes...
