When I read your thread title, I thought that it was something of a very, much more serious nature.
Yes, you have found another one of those not so evident spelling mistakes. Of which we all make, & can most certainly be corrected.
It's good, that we as a friendly, loving community, can politely share and grow together.

Sometimes we can look at a word, and not even notice that it has been misspelled or misplaced.

I myself, have written things in many of my own posts on the DJI forum and went back days or even weeks later to find very obvious errors.
This can frequently happen, particularly, when we are thinking ahead of ourselves.  I love pointing out others mistakes, because we dislike seeing our own flaws or minor mistakes, done by others.

It's great that you have pointed this out, as it helps the forum become a much better, more accurate and respected place to frequent.  ;-)

Pointing out OTHER'S mistakes... he,he,he!  Or is it OTHERS' mistakes? (There's an apostrophe in there somewhere!)

Actually, "another's" would be more appropriate as it would be possessive to the other person's mistake in short form. You could use "others' " (the plural-possessive version of the pronoun "other"), but the former rolls off the tongue better in my opinion.

I realize this most likely was a rhetorical question, but the more you know.

hahahaha

Perhaps people should realize that not all the DJI staff nor forum members are native speakers of English.

Haha what a typo. I've noticed a few things like this on this forum. Don't think the website creators are native English speakers. They should get everything checked over before publishing though.

I thought his post was valid. It has resulted in DJI now being informed which should result in the mistake being corrected. I don't think your paragraphs of sarcasm was really necessary, but hey that's just my opinion :-)

Kinda reminds me of the story of the guy who arrives in Boston from away and hails a cab. He then asks the driver " hey buddy, do you know where I can get scrod?" The taxi driver replies "you know, I've heard that question asked a hundred times, but never in the pluperfect tense!"

I do hope the guy that writes the firmware code and the web designer are not the same person......

Why, is self deprecation, something that bothers you, about others?
I included myself in that illustrious group. I have pointed out spelling errors myself, on the forum.

It would most likely be a team of firmware code writers, not just one fellow.  All though with the forum, it may also take a few talented webmasters, keeping it running smoothly.  
I wonder when they will fix the long noted glitches..?
