[PSA] Lighting is NOT spelled "lightNing"

#1
Hi! Just a quick PSA for you all. First of all, I'm not trying to be snarky or anything, just helpful. I've noticed a lot of you guys and gals spell lighting with an extra N. Lightning with two N's is the electric arc that you see in the sky during storms.

I guess I'll move this thread to WW later!

But .. but .. what if you use lightning for lighting??! Wink





... I guess we'll just call it light[n]ing in that case:

Maybe we should hold a light[n]ing orientated mapping contest, to promote spelling light[n]ing being speeled without "n"s?

Or a lightning oriented one to promote the wrong spelling enough to make it the right one Big Grin

Make a map lightning contest, fail everyone because their contributions have no lightning at all.

Spell is an irregular verb.

It's definitely not lightening either, just in case anyone was thinking of calling it that!

I knew I had misspelled a few words, but I thought that nobody will ever look at it.
