I wrote a recent article reviewing a video a game and received an email stating that there are spelling errors. I have gone through it and found none but I think the issue is with gaming terminology. The article has been selected for another site, but the spelling issues are not issues! Any advice? Has anyone else had this problem? The two specific words that come to mind are roguelike and tanky which are both listed as misspelled. Just curious if anyone has had this problem?
I actually had a similar problem over the word "blackwater", which is an RV term used to describe a sewer or waste water tank. I emailed the team about it and explained that the editor kept changing it to "black water", which could be construed to mean that it is a black colored water tank, which is not what I meant at all. Finally I emailed Robin and she straightened it out. Maybe you should do as I did! Either that, or find synonyms to use for the words in question. Good luck!
I can answer you here. The issue is with both spelling and grammar. I just read the first paragraph and saw a few errors:
Barony: Cursed Edition will bring you back to the gaming days of old. It is a roguelike with a bit of not so obvious depth. For an Indie game its quite fun. Most of the negative reviews I have come across seem to curse its difficulty and those claims aren't unwarranted. However, the difficulty is what sets this apart from your standard run of the mill of rpg roguelike.

In order to move to LevelSkip, this article needs a grammar check. You can always submit it in the Forums for help from the community. Thanks!
Thank you Robin I really appreciate it..I thought the spelling errors were coming from the gaming terms.
Grammarly doesn't always catch everything, though, so beware. Also, question for those who use Grammarly: As anyone bought the app or do they just use the free version?

How can so many people who don't know how to spell get such high points on their hubs?The spelling is so bad on some of them, I can barely read the article ("teh" for "the" . . repeatedly, throughout the article?) Yet the article has 87 points . . . There should be a rule...

Due to dyslexia, I have a constant spell check and I use Grammarly to bring up often used mistakes. I do of course proofread articles before posting. I have read through my article and restructured a few places but the only thing I could see was the word optimising was being flagged as spelt...
