    Someone repped me for spelling the past participle of 'spell' wrong. I'd just like to let whoever it is know this:

    http://www.ultralingua.net/grammars/english/15.htm. If you look at this site it shows you that there are two different past participles of the verb 'spell'. One is 'spelt' and the other is 'spelled', and both are equally acceptable.

    Sorry, I can't find a spelling forum so I posted this on general chat...yes, it's a very sad thing to do, but just to set the record straight for whoever gave me the bad reputation!!!

    It was probably from the same person who neg repped me for spelling 'centered' wrong, and then went on to spell it wrong in the comment themselves.

    I would have given positive rep for a pink towel!

    It's all very well for you lot, you've pretty well established yourselves here. But being a new member trying to get green gems, getting a red one for something so trivial is slightly disheartening :confused:

    If you've had a lot of neg rep surely you'd have a grey gem because you're a new member, ether that or you've also had a lot of green rep.

    I've always thought it was only 'spelt' - but nevermind, i sit corrected.

    You're no master of quoting like me, i see. Anyway my monkey has been played with too much now, it has no energy left, so i thought i'd spend some time on UKL instead.

    lol, do you not know how to do multiple quotes? I can tell you my way of doing it, but it means you have to drop the smilies.

    Oh and no it's not you sorry, you'll have to wait a couple of days yet.
