What to do when you get an Editbot a Comment Editbot on your articles?

    What to do when you get an Editbot  a Comment Editbot on your articles?

    I saw these little robots near all my featured and not featured articles. What does it means? What do I have to change?

    somethgblueposted 2 years ago

    As far as I can tell it is there to let you know that there are some misspelled words, bad grammar and questionable sentence structure in  the article.

    However what makes absolutely no sense to me, is this includes any comments left on your articles, of which you have no control over besides deleting them.

    So if someone leaves a comment with a bunch of misspelled words they're going to show up, now someone will have to explain to me what I'm supposed to do about that.

    Hello, anybody home?

      I think its another form of control diverting us from what we want to do, making us go back to divert us from what we were really ment to do.More disinfo making us all question what we do how often do we all return to a past mistake regret or word

      I have actually spent the entire morning going through and correcting all the grammar mistakes, misspellings and poor sentence structure. I even completely reconfigured one hub entirely. I can see the evolution of my writing technique because of it.

      Mickjiposted 2 years agoin reply to this

      I tried to moderate my own comments, still that doesn't help at all to make the bot disappear or let me modify my own comments

      somethgblueposted 2 years agoin reply to this

      You can't modify your comments or edit them, you just click edit and go to the text capsule and make those corrections, then click finished editing. It's designed to make corrections to your articles.

    The bots, whether due to "corrections" within your hub or your comments, indicate to you JUST THAT.....the corrections have been made...it's DONE.
    The appearance of the little bots, gives us the opportunity to SEE what has been corrected.  That's all.
    Should we not AGREE with a particular correction, we have the option to return things to what they were before being corrected.  (For instance, you may have misspelled a word intentionally as part of what you are writing about.  Get it?)  The bots recognize a misspelled word but do not know WHY it's there, so it corrects it)  eg, In a nonsense poem I wrote, a redneck uses the word, "purdy"  for "pretty."  The bot sees purdy as a misspelled word.....BUT I KNOW WHY IT'S THERE, SO I CAN CHANGE IT BACK. If we have actual errors that have been corrected, we needn't do anything. 
    After we have looked at all that the corrections.....WE needn't do anything.  Once we've checked out the corrections.....the little bot symbols will disappear from our account page. 
    I hope I helped you understand.

      Paula did you know that in Ancient Sumeria being consider a Celestial Cow would be considered quite a compliment . . . just saying.

      Its no joke, The Celestial Cow is considered a Goddess figure in ancient Sumerian mythology as the giver of life and knowledge. The Annunaki established a Patriarchal (human) society to disparage the Matriarchal  worship of the Celestial Cow.

      Thank you Mr. blue.  I'm sure it's not a joke.  It's just that you seem to connect me to cows!!  Stop that.  I'm sensitive!  LOL

      Just trying to enlighten you to the fact that our society has been usurped by a group of Aliens intent on creating a Patriarchal paradigm of war and enslavement while preventing the spiritual evolution of our species through Goddess worship.

      And I have no idea what I'd ever do without your enlightenment.  To think I actually survived before I met you, boggles my mind, blue. Did you just tell me that I'm a goddess & you worship me?  Awwwww

      You crack me up.  Had to Laugh out loud at that one, blue. You're a piss pot. Just when I think I'm upset with you, you say the cutest things. (Don't let that go to your oversized head!)

      Because of this question and Paula's answer I spent about four hours yesterday eliminating the editbots from about half of the hubs they were linked too. If you go in and correct the mistakes and re-save them, they will disappear.

      I thank you all! It worked for all my content bot, now they are all disappeared(I always wrote the same wrong word). The comment bot still appear as somethgblue said they cannot be modified

      REPEAT: WE do NOT need to "correct." It's done FOR US. Bots tell us WHERE corrections are. We go in to SEE. If OK, we do nothing! U want it BACK the way it was, change it. If this process is done correctly, THE BOTS WILL DISAPPEAR FROM ACCNT. PG.

      Well, they didn't correct it on my articles, are you saying all we have to do is . . . nothing and it makes the correction for us, do we have to approve it some how?

      Paula is correct all we have to do is click on the button showing how many corrections and it will do it for us . . . when I grow up I want to be a Texas Longhorn.
