It would be nice if we could have a button or an option available someplace for previewing posts and replies before submitting them. I've had to edit my posts more than a few times already because of stupid formatting errors on my part (i'm used to HTML, not bbcode) that would've been caught had i been able to preview what i was attempting to post.

That would be nice. Also, I think there's a screw loose in the spell checker. Sometimes it will flag correctly spelled words. Other times it will take the last few letters of one word, then a space, then the first few letters of the next word and call it all misspelled.

Edwin, I don't think the site has a spell checker. If there is a problem with your browser's built-in spell check, I don't see how this site could possibly affect it.

I'm looking at the "Check spelling" button right now. Directly above the upper right corner of this comment box. I don't think it's part of my browser, but I suppose it could be.

i don't see the spell check option for normal comments, but for posting a new topic and editing a topic/comment, it's there. weird, IMO.

That is weird. For me the button is here in the forums, but not in the comments section for news articles.

this is where the buttons are for me:
news articles: only on editing a commentforums: only when posting an entirely new topic or editing a comment/topic.
I don't think it's just the browser, either, because I'm using Firefox, which has a built-in spellchecker.

Huh, you're right. Spell check is only there after you hit Edit or when you are starting a new topic, not when you are just posting a normal reply for the first time. My bad, Edster! That's just odd. Seems like if spell check were there from the get-go, you wouldn't have to press Edit as often, and the lack of a post preview wouldn't be so hard to overlook.

No worries. Just to be clear, I have spell checking in all the places theblackdragon does as well as when posting regular comments. I have the option right now as I'm typing this. And I'm using IE which I don't think has a built-in checker.

Im with theblackdragon on this one. I have firefox too (better then IE imo) I have no problem with the spell checker. but a preview would be nice.

Just to be clear, that wasn't clear at all, because the Black Dragon said she had it only when posting new topics or editing posts, exactly like I do.
