I've been quite a bit lax in doing typos, please forgive me and don't whip me with that wet noodle...  Over time I'll try to catch up by working the file backwards, but don't expect I'll get both ends met.  If you find a typo please report it.
Here are the recent fixes:

Sun           - Jan 12 -  3010 : In help file 65, "/s on a new line to safe what you have written" replace 'saf
e' with 'save'
Sun           - Jan 12 - 17560 : On the Death Star, in the Information Center, last sentence "Although if your
try..." should be "Although if you try..."
Sun           - Jan 12 -  3109 : In 20w San Francisco Harbour, "Unfortunately many of the ships never read thei
r intended destination." should be "...reach their intended destination."
Sun           - Jan 12 - 38322 : In the Space Port turbo lift level 4, 'say map' indicates that the Esper Guild
 is to the east.  It should be Docking Bay 11.
Sun           - Jan 12 - 38347 : The room description for Space Port Docking Bay 17 says that it's the bay for
The Explorer (Titanic).  This Bay should be destination not yet determined.  The Explorer docks at Docking Bay 7.

ook east' the message "Thw women's locker room..." should be 'The...'

I've not been keeping up with listing the typo changes, some of which was because I came across some I thought could easily be used to figure out some quests.  But, seeing as I don't know quests.. who knows.  ;)  I figured these were safe and I'll try to get back to regularly posting them again.

Zalyn         - Jul 12 - 23127 : looking south from this room, it says "Yo'd have to find a place where it is l
ess steep." where 'Yo'd' should be 'You would'

<changed to You'd - figured that's what they meant>

Phlag         - Jul 12 - 25826 : In this area there are multiple level workers that apparently are shown by a -
. I can ot see that when I look at mobs. Being blind, this puts me at a disadvantage, my speach program doesn't read it. Can they be tagged some different way? maybe by a piece of eq or marking on the mob?

<this is being worked on>
 
Zalyn         - Jul 12 -  7818 : if you look down in this room, it says 'If you go wown there...' wown should b
e down
Zalyn         - Jul 13 -  7891 : the description of the Hoe item in this room says 'crush a man's scull' scull
should be skull
Kesi          - Jul 13 - 17813 : A dagger found in the donatioon room says fisrt rather than first class weapon
.

<ok.. I am not going through 4 pages of "dagger" to figure out which one this is - full name of item would give me a better hint.  If someone else finds this typo, can you report it?  Thanks>

Lharc         - Jul 13 - 19660 : @utopia:The South Entrance To Utopia City Park, 'and a sigh is attached to the
 right hand fence.', *sign

<this is a Utopia thing, so leaving it for Molly - she says she's going to do them>

Kesi          - Jul 14 -  3004 : in the Token helpfile there is no space between token and machine and I think
there should be?
Althea        - Jul 14 - 14701 : in the first room of the circus near Dodge it should be excited in the description instead it says exiting.
Lazav         - Jul 14 -  3001 : Suddenly, with a bright flash, Phlag vanishes --- needs a period. happens when
 using pink triangular ticket.
Althea        - Jul 14 -  3001 : in the automeld helpfile it says all you need to do is wear your cloths again
I think that means clothes.

Althea        - Jul 15 - 12901 : When looknig at the showcas ebox in the Seekers clan hall it says colleced rat
her than collected.
Loran         - Jul 15 - 70902 : gold-diggers casino, it claims to be a bar but you cant buy drinks, missing sh
op list
Loran         - Jul 15 - 70902 : slot machine is missing triggers to be usable and has no desc's</td></tr></tab
le>
Loran         - Jul 15 - 70902 : missing north look description "nothing special here"
Loran         - Jul 15 - 70902 : looking east and west claim to have more tables, is this an expansion?</td></t
r></table>
***
All of Loran's above: The Casino and that area is Calypso's new house so it doesn't actually have a bar - it just looks like one.  When Stile checked, he could get both the slots and craps to work.  I thought there may have been an issue since they're actually room scripts and not object scripts but they work in the place they came from.  I'm assuming they're just making it look larger than it is with the east and west descriptions.
***

Phlag         - Jul 15 - 28476 : the word "surpriced" is misspelled.
Zalyn         - Jul 16 -  6675 : if you look east in this room, you see "...But you can see a beautifuk mermaid
 reclining there." obviously beautifuk should be beautiful
Phlag         - Jul 16 - 28462 : Is a tree meant to grow in this shop?
***
I guess since it's flagged wilderness a tree can.  Besides it is in the Elven metropolis.  Of course elves would have trees in their shop...  *innocent look*

***
Phlag         - Jul 16 - 28460 : Amalith has a misspelled word when you ask her what is wrong, the word reconst
ruct is spelled wrong.
Lharc         - Jul 17 - 19685 : The Utopia Herald Reception, Obvious exits, North - The Editors Office  utf-8/
latin1 problem?
***
I couldn't repeat this problem so couldn't correct.  Besides, it's Utopia, Molly can deal with it.  ;)
***
Lharc         - Jul 18 -  6625 : "Professor Rich is looking you over suspiciously." => "oversuspiciously." ? no
t sure
***
No.. I'm sure he's looking at you suspiciously and he's probably looking you over from head to toe, so over suspiciously would be correct.

Hmm, at least MY descs had the apostrophe in the correct place in "Editor's Office". Can I typo report a typo report?  :P
I have no idea what Lharc means by  "utf-8/latin1 problem?", do you?

I couldn't reproduce the error either, but I found something else totally weird in the adjoining room, while looking north - a grubby child playing in the dirt.
The child had no business being in that room, it wasn't reset there by mistake, and both rooms are flagged !mob, so how on earth did the brat get there?

Sometimes this mud is just plain... weird...

Estidn        - Jul 20 - 25666 : This room's look north description says you can see several men north, but when you open the door there are females.
Estidn        - Jul 20 - 25663 : This room look north, describes men, but female mobs
Phlag         - Jul 20 - 19136 : the mob in here is a woman, the desc says this women, it should be this woman.
 Phlag         - Jul 20 - 19139 : the mob wife, has women in the desc, it should be woman?
Phlag         - Jul 20 - 19142 : the mob wife, has women in the desc, it should be woman?
Phlag         - Jul 20 - 19143 : the mob wife, has women in the desc, it should be woman?
Phlag         - Jul 20 - 19119 : the mob wife, has women in the desc, it should be woman?
Phlag         - Jul 20 - 19112 : the mob wife, has women in the desc, it should be woman?
Phlag         - Jul 20 - 19122 : the mob wife, has women in the desc, it should be woman?
Phlag         - Jul 20 - 19121 : the mob wife, has women in the desc, it should be woman?
Lharc         - Jul 22 -   502 : The Practice Room, look sign, doesn't turn off white color
Lharc         - Jul 22 -   563 : The Baseball Locker Room, magic baseball bat?
Lharc         - Jul 22 -   563 : The Baseball Locker Room, sign talks about a mob?
**
Not sure  what the issue is with the above two typo reports.  The baseball bat is wand – showing newbies going through the mud school that any object can be anything.  The sign talks about the mob that is in the room that you need to kill to get the key... what's the typo/problem?
**
Lharc         - Jul 22 -   564 : any of those three commands might ... its four commands if BEHIND is counted as well.
**
I'm not finding any reference to three commands in this room.  I even tried looking at everything and stated the triggers.  Where is this typo actually from?
**
Tamyrlin      - Jul 22 - 35032 : I think the mutaded bluebottles in this area are supposed to be mutaTed!</td></tr></table>
**
After I started fixing these (multiple vnums) I thought “Maybe they're supposed to be mutaded since they're mutated....”  hehe  I still fixed them all so now even though they're part of Utopia Outside so now Molly doesn't have to since she's busy with other things.
**
Estidn        - Jul 22 - 25691 : Typo on a script that says The lunatic sidles over to you, licking your cheek. Should probably say slides
**
Nope, I actually looked up sidle because I was sure it was a word:
si·dle
 [sahyd-l] Show IPA verb, si·dled, si·dling, noun
verb (used without object)
1.
to move sideways or obliquely.
2.
to edge along furtively.
**
Lharc         - Jul 23 -  1729 : exa A construction worker --> "He wears large steal-toed.."  change-to: steel-toed
Lazav         - Jul 23 -  3001 : Calypso seems to be spening a lot of time thinking about a booger. - what emote is this, obvious typo
**
If anyone can tell me which social this is, I would appreciate it so much I'd fix the typo.
**
Phlag         - Jul 23 - 21890 : Was told by a mob that gave hints to come here and look in the wishing well, for something great, I have, but nothing in the well, I don't have the ability to throw coins in thw well, so, I tried toss, drop flip etc, nothing would work.
**
As an IMM, I see the issue, but there is no error here.  Perhaps you can find a player to give you a hint or two as it doesn't seem to be part of a quest.  I also wasn't able to do this as a mort, so I don't feel I should give the hint out.
**
Asmodeus      - Jul 25 -  3001 : lazav gossiped the word "clanb" which is not a word
Asmodeus      - Jul 25 -  3001 : lazav is dating Faeryl, which isn't a real name or a correct spelling</td></tr></table>

The above 46 typos is why the note went out to please use typo for real things that an IMM has to deal with went out, all you're doing when you use it for stupid stuff like that is fill up the typo file which will be needed as the new zones go in – and obviously for the older zones too – and Utopia still has quite a few typos out there it seems.

Pix           - Aug  6 - 41167 : actually, it seems the trigger is on the pitprop itself, so I can't remove it

Estidn        - Aug  9 -  1701 : in the script in the arcade it says you're eyes seem to be getting fuzzy. The
one that sends you from pleasure planet to italy.

Sorry, I can't find this script so I can't fix it.

Estidn        - Aug 10 - 13669 : This room needs to be formatted.

Just so you know, with Tocharaeh's new zone going in, I'm not going to be able to post typos until after the zone is open - I don't want to let any quest secrets to be accidentally released.

The typo file had been full for almost a month and a half, but it finally got cleaned out.  As far as I know all typos are currently fixed so if you find one, feel free to report it - again if need be.   And please, only on mobs, objects, rooms and scripts, I can't fix anyone's player descriptions or notes (yes, someone just did a typo report on a note) or even stuff on the website that isn't mine so leave those out of the typo file.  If we had less of the stuff we can't do anything about, we'd stop filling up the typo file so quickly.

I believe that as of this morning, Sunday, February 23rd - noon EST, all of the typos have been fixed.  If you find another, feel free to typo report it.  If you are told the typo file is full, please send a note to Molly and Kvetch and we'll spank the people that need to empty it out.

Good job, Kvetch.

It is nice to know that the typos are fixed, since we are planning to enter a new zone very soon, and that usually fills it up fast. :)

I believe that as of this morning of April, 27th 2014, all entries in the typo file have been fixed (other than Rynald's crash report that will have to be looked into by someone else).
