In the campaign tab, Forum Spelling, you can now add custom words to the Forum's dictionary.

Please be sparing with additions - such as Spiraman, and make sure our "campaign words" are spelled correctly. Let's not add Muldav, Moldav, Mouldav, Moldavv and Mulldev to the custom list. A custom dictionary does little good if every misspelled word gets added. Yes, this is for you, Lew...

So is it D'jinn or Gen?

Genie is proper term of the Class.  Gen is the species name.  It is also the name the Odessan Genies have taken as a people.  Their home is Gengendale.  I don't believe D'jinn is ever mentioned in the books or on any post that should be considered an in game precedent or rule.

Test

Keld, keld, elf, Elf, equirda Equirda, Parn Silia parn silia

Interesting Keld, equirda, Parn, and Silia are on the list.  The spell check skipped elf, Elf, equirda and Equirda, but not the others.  Am I doing something wrong?

Fixed.. it was doing a case sensitive comparison and the system converts the words in the post to all lowercase before checking which causes it not to make a match on the capitalized words in the custom list.  So, I made the existing words all lowercase and now convert words to lowercase before saving them to the file.

err something like that :)
