Spelling (draft proviso)

We do not prefer American English over British English (or the reverse) except when the word in question is an in game concept -- then we follow the in game spelling. Also, editing an article to change all the spellings from one form to another is inappropriate. However, if something is misspelled in both British and American English, then we reserve the right to mercilessly taunt you encourage you to invest in a spellchecker.
