News Section Problems

Hi, so I couldn't find a section on this. A large amount of errors seem to be creeping through in the news articles form spelling to grammatical errors. Personally I don't have a major problem with it but from a professional point of view it kind of makes the site look bad.

Proof reading?

I've noticed the occasional typo etc. too, with the comment section inundated with corrections and sarcastic remarks when it does happen.

OK, you've got us

Typos tend to happen here and there, but we'll try to be more careful editing news and other stuff.

But generally you're right - the content should be well-written and properly spelled, and our editors do take it seriously.

If only we could wish the same for comment section ....

to be fair, you're normally quick enough to correct errors that those who point them out in the comments look foolish
