Typo error (and other) found

What?.... I’m sorry I don’t mean to create extra work, I’m just stuck at home and bored so I’m going through almost every entry in the DITL. Can we get the Wicked Witch of the West to throw some evil fairy dust on them? ;)

“Editions : There are two editions, on e which covers..”

on e ——> one

http://www.ditl.org/species-timeline.ph ... ID=Species

“Seven of Nine assist the Hirogen in capturing his pey, against Captain Janewway's orders..”

pey—> prey


http://www.ditl.org/species-page.php?Sp ... ID=Species

“Founder members of the Federation, the Andorians are a violent warrior race”

Founder —> Founding

“Some three hundred years and fifty years ago the Ba'ku had entered a period of rapidly..”

Typo

http://www.ditl.org/scitech-page.php?Sc ... D=Sci-tech

“The Federation has a long history with antigraity technology”

antigraity -> antigravity


Typo

http://www.ditl.org/scitech-page.php?Sc ... D=Sci-tech

*Entry regarding positronic computers*
“He was dsicovered by the Starship Tripoli two years later and reactivated”.

dsicovered —> discovered


Possible typo(?)

http://www.ditl.org/scitech-page.php?Sc ... D=Sci-tech

“Unfortunately, whilst investigating Ceti Alpha V the Reliant was captured by Khan Sing, marooned there by Captain Kirk many years earlier”.

*I looked up multiple references and they keep saying that it’s spelled Singh, not Sing.

Please don't. It's something we encourage. I will correct them at some point.

No rush! They're little things that no one noticed, no worries.

Typo's on Colour key page

http://www.ditl.org/guide-key-page.php?ListID=Sci-tech

"In such cases, each part is coloured according to how detailed our knowledge is. In this example, that there are 15 torpeado tubes comes from a backstage source, that they are pulse fire is our invention, but the fact that it has photon torpeado tubes is canon information as referenced. Pointing the mouse at the small blue numbers pops up a window giving the details on the reference. Clicking them will take you to the refernce table at the bottom of the page".

Torpeado -> Torpedo
Refernce -> Reference

More typo's

http://www.ditl.org/ship-page.php?Class ... ID=Lineage

"The number of Daedalus class ships was allowed to gradually fall as ships reached the end of their hull life and retired. Initially it was planned to retire the crusier-type altogether in favour of large numbers of smaller, more manoeuvrable vessels".

manoeuvrable -> maneuverable

crusier -> cruiser

manoeuvrable -> maneuverable

crusier -> cruiser
The spelling of maneuverable is actually the British English spelling of the word.

Like the difference of armor and armour. Or gray and grey.

Though it's been a while, is the whole site spelled in the British English or the American English? As in Americans don't like to use the 'u' as often as the Brits.

Ok! thank you! I do try to keep the differences in mind (like Favor vs. Favour above). I believed the manoeuvrable was incorrect when I looked at where the "v" is in the spelling. So my bad, thank you :)

I don't know if you can combine all three without a special app. Usually it's seperates by just one form of English.
