I love Dawgnation - read it every day. BUTTTTTT....can y'all please get someone competent to proofread your articles before posting? The content is always excellent, but it is sometimes hard to stay with the flow of the narrative with so many missing and/or incorrect words! Y'all are better than this.

    I just figure it's b/c they're putting the Dawgs content out first, sometimes they might be in a rush and mistakes happen. It's usually nothing major and it's pretty easy to connect the dots to figure out what they're saying..

    This is no excuse. Grammarly accounts are fairly inexpensive and would solve the problem.

    Its embarrassingly bad.

    I almost wondered if I was the only one to notice.

    ^^^^^ If only it were that simple. The mistakes that are made on a regular basis are far more egregious than the common errors everyone makes. Anyone just reading it over a second time could spot most of them. Grammarly could do it as well. For about 20 bucks.

    I just think it detracts from the excellent content.

    I don't disagree, but whenever I see a first post that creates a thread with negative content it detracts from credibility.

    Meh... since I'm a horrible speller and grammar (see!)


    As long as I can easily understand the message being read, I'm lenient on most of those things.

    Seriously, not a big deal. Some people just like to complain about things. DawgNation does a great job.

    Jeez...Even misspelled Zamir White's name in the headline...

    Appreciate being upfront and honest about this.

    and I hope no one missed the note about having to cut copy editors next time someone complains about having to pay for a subscription to the athletic

    honest question: do y'all use something like Grammarly? a program/app/plug in that'll go over your work before you publish it?

  • swilkerson73swilkerson73 Posts: 281 ✭✭ Sophomore

    Easy to fix. Its called grammarly
