QuestionCodeProject challenges PinadminChris Maunder18-Aug-14 5:45 
I've mentioned before an idea I had about getting the smartest and brightest (yeah, that means you lot) to come up with solutions to day to day issues we have that will, ultimately, save the community as a whole some time and pain.
 
A challenge I'm facing at the moment is in correcting grammar and punctuation.
 
Many, many, MANY times I see questions or articles that have things like "i then did" or "im not sure" or the punishable-by-death "ur mileage may vary". Even Sql instead of SQL and Asp.Net instead of ASP.NET keep popping up.
 
Is anyone interested in a challenge to write a Javascript library that will auto-correct bad spelling and punctuation? It'll be a formal contest with prizes (and maybe even some better specs).
 
Yay or nay: any interest?
cheers
Chris Maunder
