Nintendo Site Misspellings

Postby Tiptup Jr. » February 17th, 2008, 7:42 am

Remember on wii.nintendo.com's old page for Barrel Blast, when they misspelled Donkey Kong as Donkie Kong? Now, on Nintendo's mini-page for the game, they spelled Barrel with an extra l, so it looks like Barrell. You know what I think? Nintendo is doing this on purpose for a few laughs. I've contacted them on the matter, but they seem to be ignoring my e-mails. Here is a link:

You're overreacting, It's just a spelling error. Is it really worth E-Mailing them, and making a topic about it?

Yeah, it's not on purpose, it's just a mistake. Not that big of a deal.

What? The least they could do is proofread the darn thing. I do not take misspellings on official websites lightly.

Yeah, actually I agree. It's pretty unprofessional looking to have silly errors like those. I mean, an official Nintendo site spelling their ground breaking success's title character's name incorrectly... That's just ludicrous. And any proofreader or automated spell-checker would have picked up on 'barrell'... Seriously, who hires these people?!

I'd appreciate anyone who notices such errors on DKC Atlas to let me know. I'd like to look more professional than Nintendo. :D
