We could do that, or we could make the things that typofixers shouldn't have access to require a higher level than just the trust associated with it. Editing the MOTD or IMOTD would obviously be pretty much an imp only task. Most of the others are straightforward though. Send me a PM or an email on what you'd like to restrict.

Acridia       - May  9 - 10002 : object 'the skin of a crocodile', when I 'smell skin', I get 'It doesn't smell
 too interesting' - it needs a period '.' at the end 'It doesn't smell too interesting.' Been carrying this around for a bit - think it was from Jurassic Park zone.

That's not really breaking the deed system. At best it's gaming personal deeds based on deeds not requiring at least clan_rank 1 to put. The real benefit of deeds is in the clan bonuses anyway.

I have actually been keeping up on these, but since there were so few, I didn't post them when I did them.  Here are the last few days fixes and notes on ones I couldn't do.

Mardo         - May 11 -  3001 : Calypso is pushed to the down by Bane. - SEEMS LIKE GOOD ENGIRSH
-  REported to coders as a bug and already fixed

Acridia       - May 11 -  3054 : room description, last sentence, 'North Cross Roads,' should be 'North Crossroads,'.
Acridia       - May 11 -  7925 : room description, last sentence - between words 'oil' and 'and their habit', t
here is a strange character.
Acridia       - May 11 -  6722 : room description, 2nd sentence, 'underpayed' should be 'underpaid'.
Mardo         - May 13 -  3001 : Summon/Nosummon helpfile -- This spell will not work in room (should be will not work in a room)
**Mardo         - May 13 -  3001 : Spellcasting helpfile (311) -- If a spell is cast without victim  (should be without a victim)
Calypso       - May 16 - 17231 : helpfile for embue says the l
***Calypso       - May 16 - 17231 : helpfile for embue says duration varies, but it is permanent. It has confused a newbie.

** I can't seem to get into the 311 spellcasting file.  It keeps wanting to take me to the first helpfile that has spellcasting in it which is not the one I want to change.  Can someone else look into a way to fix this?

*** I'm not sure why it says varies.  Does anyone else know why it does or should this be changed to permanent?

Jeslyn        - May 17 - 53508 : lapith woman is riding with the men. he is moving with unnatural speed. should be she not he.
Mardo         - May 17 -  3001 : From afar, Kvetch sniffs sadly and looks to you for comfort,
Jeslyn        - May 18 -  7819 : when you type look d it says if you go wown there you'll probably not be able to get up again. It should be down.

Wyrling       - May 27 - 14500 : In the room going to the second midlands area, (after ven forest, in the boundary) script says temprature.  Should be temperature.

* Haven’t figured out what the typo is here.  Unless you want height that comes after this to be high…
** Sent this to the bug file since it deals with spells which is code.

- It’s a) the difference between what’s being sent to the player (you) and what’s being sent to the room (others), so it only seemed like it worked fine when you were by yourself.  The %echoaround%’s were using %actor% instead of %actor.name% which is why the numbers and not the name.    So, builder’s remember that difference.

I'd let it ride.

It is actually a quote from some old Egyptian inscription, and the typo - if it is a typo - is also in the source.

My guess is that it might mean "ebony wood",  since that's the only thing I can think of that makes any sense in the context.
Although it's a weird typo.


Perhaps there was some tree called mry in those days, who knows?

Mardo         - Jul 29 - 23065 : this room is called Deep water, instead of Deep Water, like the others

I took a month off and it seems Rynald decided he had to prove me wrong on the "not many typos left" statement. He had a bit of help, but was mostly him.  Didn't have time to do many today, but will continue to work on them until they (and the ones you're currently doing) are done.  Here's what I got.

Rynald        - Aug  3 - 38460 : the spaces is filled -> space or spaces are
Rynald        - Aug  3 - 38452 : feel wall: lose stones -> loose
Rynald        - Aug  3 - 38448 : say greetings to Qurumba: Only place where the -> they
Rynald        - Aug  3 - 38459 : dig: You'll just break your fingernails digging in the  deep -> 2 spaces betwe
en the and deep
Rynald        - Aug  4 -  3887 : in the trading with the Egyptian -> Egyptians
Rynald        - Aug  4 -  3836 : look down: footrints
Rynald        - Aug  4 -  3837 : desc of shady man: But the nomads. -> nomads,
Rynald        - Aug  4 - 38413 : desc of the nomad chief: giving good advise -> advice
Rynald        - Aug  4 - 38413 : say egypt to nomad chief: but the Egyptian are like the Locust -> Egyptians
Rynald        - Aug  4 - 38413 : say nomad to nomad chief -> misses a period at the end

* I couldn't find this error.  Saw it ending in ... as in he stopped talking.

Rynald        - Aug  4 -  3863 : a bottle of scented oil doesn't cast anything according to its id

* You're right.  It doesn't.  Possibly meant to be that way, though it does mention healing properties.  Would have to talk to Molly about that.

Rynald        - Aug  5 -  3735 : look north looks weird
Rynald        - Aug  5 -  3772 : look north looks weird here
