Solved "unlegitimated" vs "illegitimate"

Post by Games4theworld on February 5th 2015, 8:28 pm

Hello all,

I want to report a little "typo".
When you go to the forum post reports (For you this would be http://help.forumotion.com/report ) and try to change the status of a report, you'll see one option that says "unlegitimated". One of my team members recently PM'ed me and told me this isn't actually a word. The correct word would probably be "illegitimate"/"illegitimated".



Why not use "Report legitimate" and "Report illegitimate" as an alternative?

I believe at the time when the report system was built that FM didn't have a full time English translator who knew English a 100% and instead had someone who knew English but not great. I then think it wasn't changed because it was left like that for so long that people got used to it.

I'll report this to our Pro Admin who'll see if it can be changed. While it isn't correct English I think most people understand exactly what it means.

Hello @Games4theworld

Thanks for informing us about those gramma mistakes! I've made the correction! The change won't appear immediatly online because there is a cron.

Thanks for your help!

Thank you for your replies, @Derri and @Buttercup!

Of course, we all know what it means, but if it's technically not correct, why not change it? Smile

Since the spelling mistake has been changed, I will archive this topic.
