No Spell Check (and Emoticons)....why???

Dear EP~ why did you remove the SPELL CHECK AND EMOTICONS from story pages!?
Especially the spell check that meant a great deal to us merely adequate spellers!
NOW I HAVE TO GO TO MY 'WORD', WRITE STORIES THERE AND THEN GO AND COPY PASTE THEM TO EP!
WHAT A PAIN THE THE tuhez :(...!!!
(NOT TO MENTION AN EXCERCIZE IN REDUNDANCY)

I WOULD VERY MUCH LIKE TO HEAR YOUR LOGIC BEHIND THIS MANEUVER AND IF I AM MISSING SOMETHING PLEASE FILL ME IN , THANK YOU.

PLEASE I KNOW I AM NOT THE ONLY FRUSTRATED ONE HERE, I SEND A LETTER TO ARHINESH(SORRY IF I MISSPELLED YOUR NAME) REGARDING THIS ISSUE, NEVER GOT A REPLY BACK!
WHY NOT?

SORRY BUT THAT CHANGE IS TOTALLY FOR THE WORSE, IT MAKES NO SENSE AT ALL EP ADMIN!!

PLEASE BRING BACK THE SPELL CHECK TO STORIES. EMOTICONS WERE A NICE TOUCH TOO.

RESPECTFULLY, KURZEMIETE.

( this i did not edit ahead of time on spell check, proof positive how sorely some of us need it :D!!!)

Thank you so much for everyone's comment, i really appreciate that :))!<br />
<br />
I am the one most obsessed with my own less than adequate grammar so i miss the spell checkl :)...<br />
I would never be this petty to vote down a person's story based on grammar it's true DJK44 and married2bf! :)<br />
<br />
I hear you m2bf! I like to give the world the polised product:)<br />
<br />
Yes CuriousSgt sometimes my story does vanish as I refresh my page, very annyoing isn't it? <br />
<br />
Thank God for Word :))!!

Thank you DJK44. Doesn't change my desire to present myself with practically perfect spelling and grammar - but really ... some things shouldn't matter and for god's sake ... some people feel the need to actually comment on a person's story to berate them for the spelling! Really... doesn't the tab have an X to escape? Aren't there enough fine folk on EP that you don't have to interact with those who annoy you with poor spelling and grammar? I rate those comments down, but as a community, we don't rate down ugly comments enough... did you know that if enough people rate down an ugly comment, EP will hide it from us? :) Fun way to play with fools... try it on me ... I'll enjoy discovering you guys dislike what I say!

hey guys, the spell-check-as-you-type plugin in the editor is the ABC icon with a triangle next to it. Just click on that, and hit enable, and misspelled words will have ared squiggly underline. Or you can use the traditional spell checker by clicking the ABC icon with no triangle.

I actually have a learning disability. I misspell numbers ... try to write 14 and write 38. I used to get beaten for flunking spelling tests that everyone knew I had studied intently for. :) My disability disappears behind the keyboard (for the most part) so I must type (and spell check) everything ... even excuses for my kids' absences from school. I type on word and paste into EP though... even comments .... don't really know much about their spell checker.

EM, *K guffaws, semi elegantly * ;)

Ok Arsineh i will do so thank you!!<br />
<br />
<br />
m2bf hahahahahaha!<br />
<br />
*falls off chair laughing*

I beleive that folcks who don't no how to spell shood be exposed for all to sea.

Sorry for the frustration.<br />
<br />
Emoticons and spell check should not have been removed. This maybe a bug. If you could send a screen shot to support@experienceproject.com that would be very helpful. Also, please tell us when you first noticed this change and they browser and version you are using. Thank you!

(hugs) HA! <br />
yeah i hear you ok i am so accustomed to that method it was easy fast and quite frankly have grown unused to using dic everytime i type. :S lol i am a creature of habit but yeah if they don't reinstate that feature i will prob just write on Word and then copy /past here :)<br />
<br />
thank you for your post jo!!

Keep a dictionary next to the computer then if the word looks like it's spelt wrong you can check it. I have the problem it doesn't like my NZ spelling!!
