    Are there any usernames here that autocorrect always gets wrong, no matter how many times you try to correct it

    Lets see the spelling your phone suggests and the actual username

    The current bane of my autocorrect is @[member="Deltheor"] or as my phone says Delthor or Dethelor or even Dethleor the best yet and the closest is Detheor .(Nothing against him)

    No auto-correct issues, because I only use forum sites (such as this one) with PCs only. I can see it being a problem, though. Most smartphones or tablets have the option of disabling auto-correct, but then you're risking potential and unintentional, occasional spelling errors.

    I turned autocorrect off on my phone, because if I do make a mistake I usually notice it and go back to edit it.

    I only use my computer to access forums, but there were some times in the past where I'd occasionally use my iPod instead. I turned my autocorrect off ever since it wouldn't stop changing Keldeo into "Kelsey" (which became an inside joke between me and my pals later on), and mashing up other Pokémon names when I would try to roleplay.

    I don't have autocorrect on anything, but I know that people who use autocorrect really hate it.

    I usually give my phone a sec before hitting space after usernames so I can cancel the autocorrect so it's not much of a hassle for me. I type most of them so much that unrelated words end up autocorrecting to usernames which is the bigger of the two problems, haha

    It doesn't bother me too much since I usually don't tag people either way, but it does anyone me time from time, especially with the username Magpaeonia since it always wants to correct to just Magpae which is a type of bird.

    I know whenever I sign in on my phone at times it usually puts my name separately. Otherwise I don't have problems with that.

    I got no auto-correct issue since I only access places like this on my PC since my phone well can't do that and even if it could I probably wouldn't and I would most likely disable auto-correct.

    I've had Sydney's name spelled Vanilla before, or even Vanish. It's funny.

    It's funny at times, but auto correct is rather annoying. Every weird word, or name is underlined in red, and you just have to fix it. Autocorrect has spaced out my user name which I really don't mind. Since it's easy to press that enter button, it's easy for autocorrect to make it's way around things. That's why I hate it, and I'd prefer using PC's for forums, but sometimes, I use mobile.

    Anyone, anyone who has me on skype and talks to me frequently will eventually get used to
    my ridiculous typos and autocorrects.

    Do you wanna type mur? Nope, you'll send murder instead!
    @[member="Noctis"] I've had to stop myself from sending 'Baxter' several times.

    Hilarious because, it's true.

    Every time I go to send a message to Mur through Skype, it always autocorrects to murder. Like what. XD

    ((Also this conversation is just LOL.))
