Why can't people spell "Tires" correctly on these forums?

40 replies 301 views Edited Jan 1, 2011

I see so many people spell "Tires" on these forums incorrectly.  Like "Tyres", "Tieres", or "Tyeres".  Spellcheck anyone?

Because more than just US people visit these forums where different spellings are used. I prefer the tyre version myself, its what most of the World uses.

The spelling Tires is pretty much just a North American thing .

Now that you mention it, this is really the U.S. forum. If you look at the address bar, it says "community.us.playstation.com". I know that many are under the impression that this is a global forum, however Playstation.com is regionalized. Not to say that we don't like visitors, but if there's a question about something from your particular region, it may be best to ask it where it can be properly answered. You can see the different localized versions of Playstation.com here in the country selector;

It is a bit frustrating, considering that Spell Check is built in to most browsers.
