What is the polite way to let a hubber know about major spelling and grammar errors on their hub?
I've discovered the occasional ones in mine after publishing while tired, and was happy to know no one gave a down thumb before I could fix it. I've seen some hubs that were much, much worse, but felt funny sending a personal message.
As the Nike ad says, "Just do it!" You can say that your hub is very good; however, it would be much better if you do the following things e.g. make judicious use of a dictionary and/or a grammar book to make your hubs run more smoothly and look more professional.
I suggest mentioning Hub Article errors privately, through the contact button. I always appreciate people alerting me of spelling errors and pointing out where, in a Hub, the error is.
Using a personal message is better than posting on a Hub. I have found that most; almost all people that I have messaged about errors have been thankful for my pointing it out. If someone takes offense to it, well...what can I say?
I agree with J.S.Matthew that notification should be done by PM and in a polite manner. I appreciate being told about my errors, especially spelling errors.
However some words are spelled differently in other cultures such as 'center' and 'centre' as it is spelt in Australia!
I believe an email is nice...I have great friends who has done this for me and I appreciate it so much and never take offense..I know they only want the best for me.
I used to have a fellow hubber just correct my hubs for me...you must be an editor :0)...Hey we fiction writers can not spell and besides we make up new words every day....!!!
Mike :0) So I have no Pro if you wish to corrrrreeeeccctttt me LOL

When commenting on other Hubbers articles, do you point out spelling and grammar errors?
