Typo Fixes
« on: April 29, 2012, 10:13:13 pm »
It seems that because people don't see us do it, there's a feeling that sometimes we don't look at the typo board.  Well, just to let you know we do!  New board to keep you up to date on all our typos that have been fixed so you know that Yes, we ARE working for you.  :)

Nice work, Kvetch.
But wouldn't it be great if there was a command to remove a typo rapport from the typo file after you fixed it?

Coders? is it possible?

It would be nice, yes, but even if that was put in it wouldn't show the people that play that we're working, which is what this board is for.  It would also probably make it so the typo file didn't fill up so quickly when we have people like Acridia and how some previous players used to be that send so many. ONce it fills up it takes time to get someone to archive the file to open it up again, which means we probably do miss a few typos.

I can manually delete the entries from the typo file itself. Diandra might know another way. But I can at least clear out the ones Kvetch did.

Maybe Once or Molzilla can add an command. I know Molz is playing around with lisp so it might be able to do it. I would ask Molz to see if it is possible.

I got bored so went back to see if there were some earlier ones that needed to be done and I found some.

I never deleted them. If you do them in order, it's easy to know which one was the last one that you fixed. (Providing you don't leave any unfixed.)

When the file was full I asked it to be moved and replaced by an empty file. The way it is setup now, I think that's the best solution instead of wasting time to delete what has been fixed and what not with the risk of deleting the wrong ones.

But the problem is when more than one person is doing the typo file.  I rarely did any unless I was on when they were entered because I didn't want to confuse anyone else working on them - which is what I thought someone else was doing.

Today's Typo Fixes:

*Acridia       - May  1 - 38338 : in this room 'say info maps' - 1st sentence '...Different parts of Main grid,.
..' should be '...different parts of Main grid,...'.
Acridia       - May  1 - 38338 : 'help spaceship' - paragraph below 2nd '*', '...stored in the Spacewship computer.' - 'Spacewship' should be 'Spaceship'.
Acridia       - May  1 - 38338 : in this room 'say info operate', under 'FLY', 'maneouver' should be 'maneuver'.
**Acridia       - May  1 - 38338 : in this room 'look checklist' shows a list of words to say to get info, 'say i
nfo spacegrid' and 'say info communicate' do not work. 'spacegrid' gives generic newbie 'info' and 'communicate' gives nothing.
***Acridia       - May  1 - 38338 : in this room 'look checklist' - under 'info COORDINATES' - 'spacestations' should be 'space stations'. Also under 'info COMBAT' - 'misslile' should be 'missile'.
*Acridia       - May  1 - 38338 : in this room 'say info maps', 4th line 'With yourself in the middle.' should b
e 'with'.
*Acridia       - May  1 -  8215 : while in a spaceship, typing 'say info poon', the first letter of each line is
 capitalized - is this intentional or a typo?

* = This is a common problem with scripts giving information like this.  Every line that uses %echo% capitalizes the first letter of the line – whether you do it or not in the script.  The script is typed right, it’s just the problem with %echo%.

** Seems that spacegrid was actually gridspace in the trigger – I switched to spacegrid so it should work now.  There was no trigger for communicate, so I took that line out.  If any information or communicate is put in later, the line can be re-added.

*** Seems to be fixed, but not by me.  Someone else must have done it – or I didn’t find these errors – could happen, I seem to have a blind spot these days with typos.

I think the easiest way to do this is to make a new typo file so it isn't as huge as before so we can keep it under control.

I will make a backup just in case like I always do.

Seems it would be best that those that are fixed are removed from the list. So Prom if you're up to doing this. :)

And maybe talk with Molzilla indeed to make a better system to remove fixed typoes, so it's easier to see which ones still need fixing.

Kvetch, do you have access to "tedit"? If so I can hack something up with it that will let you remove typos that have already been dealt with.

Don't think any typo-fixer has access to it. Ah but seeing what it does, it would be a perfect solution.

Edit: on second thoughts, seeing there's some things in there typofixers shouldn't have access too, ain't it possible to make something like tedit but that is only connected with the typofile?

tedit - no, I do not have it.

Typos for today:
Acridia       - May  2 - 10004 : 'help scalp' 2nd sentence 'The corpse will decay, leaving all it in contents o
n the floor...' maybe should be '...leaving all of its contents on the floor...'?
Acridia       - May  3 - 10009 : 'help manipulate', 2nd sentence, '...it will be to heavy to...', should be '..
.it will be too heavy to...'.
Acridia       - May  3 -  3140 : room description, 1st sentence, 'everyting' should be 'everything'.
Acridia       - May  4 -  3199 : room description, last sentence, 'natures' should be "nature's".
Acridia       - May  5 - 21378 : 'help manipulate', last sentence '...it will be to heavy to...' should be '...
it will be too heavy to...'

I see Acridia thought I'd missed her first posting of Manipulate so thought she needed to put it in again.  ;)  This time I fixed it so there will not be a third time.  *mwahahaha*
