Please stop changing grammar away from American English. Per the Marvel Database:Manual of Style, our entries should feature American English, as the source material is created in the United States of America, with an American audience in mind. Thanks.
Marvel, in their comic books use the word "nannite", whereas in most other science fiction use "nanite" for their nano-scale distributed tech.
I too, think it's dumb, but I would prefer to stay with the source material's spelling.
Are you sure it's safe to assume "nannites" is the general spelling used in all of Marvel and wasn't exclusive to Uncanny X-Men #446? Because most comics I've read that talked about nanites, they used the word "nanites" (issues from She-Hulk, World War Hulk, Hulk, Dark Avengers, All-New Wolverine and X-Men: Gold are some examples I can provide). If that's the case, I don't think it's bad to assume "nannites" is a misspelling or an alternative spelling which could be ignored.
Fair. It's in multiple issues, but it's probably only Chris Claremont's comics.
The article in question (Sage (Earth-616)) is 90% Chris Claremont's comics so you might not be surprised that all my research for it saw just the one spelling.
Howdy! I went to the article and see the changes you have made. All of it was good except the "}}" . The "}}" that is between "Former Powers" and "Abilities" is the needed code for the article. Without it, it will mess up the whole article.
Please don't trawl through articles to find examples of English spelling to Americanise. They're not spelling mistakes, just differences in written 'dialect', and it's insulting to writers to see blocks of text adjusted to American versions just to suit you.
No problem, I like good grammar & as often as I go on this site, I thought why not fix some of the minor spelling errors. Some can be the differences between English English & American English which tend to be a little confusing. Here in Ireland we use English English.
sorry about the automated message. Here's a more personal one: welcome to the site and thanks for the proofreading - some good catches. Just a little pointer, though: the 's is only used in a possessive or as a substitute for "it is", not when it's a simple plural. So it's: "a crime fighter's weapon", but "several crime fighters". ;)
