Typos/weirdnesses

Postby effataigus » Wed Nov 21, 2012 7:08 pm

Typos are amazingly few and far between in Erfworld. A handful have been caught by forumites over the years and mentioned in the reactions threads. Almost invariably, they disappear after a short time... which may or may not be due to them having been pointed out. Anyway, I was thinking that if I were in Rob's position (there would be a lot more typos, but also...) it would be nice to have a place to find these things that doesn't require wading through the volumes of reactions threads. I was hoping this could be such a place even though the current system seems to be working fine (and I don't know of any typos currently except perhaps Sheepfly's catch on the speech bubble).

Anyway, if you find something, post it here (unless Rob tells me/us to can it :D ).
Edit/delete your post if/when it has been changed (or once you've been convinced that you were wrong).
Be patient, and don't expect a change to be made just because you posted.

I think there's still the issue of Jeftichew vs JefFtichew. In Queen Bea's letter from the First Intermission, she calls him JeFti with one F, but in LIAB 62, Jojo introduces himself as JeFFti. Everyone else has been calling him Jojo, so it's hard to get a line on who's right.

He's a carnymancer, he probably tried to cheat on his signomancy and screwed up his name.

Maybe Stanley isn't the only ruler who is bad with names. One one hand, she actually remembered what his name was; on the other, she still can't spell it worth a boop.

Jeffty is Five is a story of a a boy who can do carnymancer type things by Harlan Ellison. Sylvia had better hope she never meets Jefftichew again. I think it should always have two fs.

I was rereading Book 0, and I noticed something. At the very end of Episode 54, Wanda says, "Tell me what you know about Delphie, and I will tell you what I learned from Barton.” This is weird because Wanda is suggesting that they swap the Predictions they know about each other. Barton was Haffaton's Dollamancer. Maya Calendar was Haffaton's Predictamancer. Given the context, I think Barton should be Maya here.
