    I'd like to use bad spelling and a lot of typos in one of my hubs. Is there a way to do it without affecting the hubscore or getting the hub automatically flagged by the system?

      I don't think you'd get flagged for bad spelling.  I'm not even sure it would affect your hubscore for that particular Hub.  Why not try it and see?

      My several hubs written in Spoonerism set off my spellcheck, drove it nuts. It took a few days for Google to figure them out as well, but my scores were never compromised.

        Now that sounds like something... I remember way back when doing a report on ol' Mr. Spooner in high school.  Fascinated ever since.

          I reckon I will have to write a new one then. I can write them, but don't ask me to recite them. LOL

        ralwus, believe it or not, I was thinking of those hubs of yours. And I was wondering if you had any trouble with them. Good to know you didn't. smile Thanks, buddy!

    If there's too much bad spelling it may flag it as being non-English and you won't be able to publish it.

    But you'll see the warning, and you can notify staff to manually review it.

      I'd like to make it so that only about one third of the hub contains these errors. Hopefully, I can avoid the non-English flag that way. But if it happens, I'll do as you suggest. Thank you.

    Raider Fan did a great job of using badly spelled words, and his score was fair, when he was writing... haven't seen anything of him in ages.

    I wrote a hub spoofing Christoph Reilly that was full of made up "oakie" words and it didn't seem to suffer.

    Spell checkers only ever check words, never grammar; hence the constant misuse of to, too, two... and there, their, they're all over the place. big_smile

    I wouldn't get too hung up about it though, language is an evolving feast and studying our current word origins indicates our present ability to spell is equal to that of our forefathers.

    Write, write freely, and just use the words your audience can recognize as real (note that z English peeps). As long as they understand what you're saying, the spelling doesn't matter.
