Typos & Minor Edits Mega-thread

Consider letting the viewer know about:

  1. The undo and redo buttons in the ribbon at the top of the screen, and,

  2. The redo shortcut, Ctrl + Y or + Y.

Got some fixes for all these SoundEffect pages:

CompressorSoundEffect

https://developer.roblox.com/en-us/api-reference/class/CompressorSoundEffect

  1. ChorusSoundEffect should be corrected to CompressorSoundEffect. (Red)
  2. The same idea is portrayed twice and is unnecessary. I suggest removing the portion in the first paragraph to retain similarity with the other SoundEffect pages which all share the message in the second paragraph. (Orange)
EqualizerSoundEffect

https://developer.roblox.com/en-us/api-reference/class/EqualizerSoundEffect

  1. Abnormal spacing. (Red & Orange)
  2. Broken / No class links (Blue)
All SoundEffect Pages

There’s a large amount of unused space between the end of the class’s description text and the table of properties.

ContextActionService:SetPosition()'s description is talking about setting the text of the button???

Seems like all the images in this article are broken. :confused:

We’re aware - this was just published yesterday, but not yet announced due to the broken assets. Will be working with a web engineer to find out what’s going on.

Update: The assets are fixed and the page should be fully visible!

In https://developer.roblox.com/en-us/articles/Usage-of-dialogs It uses the deprecated connect() instead of Connect()

“Payers” is meant to be players, I believe.

I mean if they have the VIP game pass surely they paid for it :stuck_out_tongue:

Player:IsInGroup() documentation has a Markdown formatting typo in the Note section.

On the MeshPart page, the title of the second paragraph is missing a question mark.

Really red is the keyword used in BrickColor.new("") or just any use case.

BrickColor.new("Really red") -- Works
BrickColor.new("Really Red") -- Doesn't work, may confuse people that read the article.

Each game here offers VIP servers at the price of 10 Robux so that you, your friends, and your loved ones can have a private virtual space to play and stay in touch with one another.

Should be changed to use the new name (private servers) and note that they’re free and no longer 10 Robux.

local fruits = {"apples", "orangs", "kiwi"}
for index, fruit in ipairs(fruits) do
   print(index, fruit) --> 1 applies, 2 oranges, 3 kiwi, etc...
end

In the commented area, it should be 1 apples, and not 1 applies. It’s very minor, but it could confuse people and make them wonder what 1 applies to, but most likely not. Also, just noticed that oranges is spelled wrong in the table.

According to this table, Roblox still uses the old currency of R$ instead of the modern :robux:.

You can also find plugins in the Toolbox. The opening paragraph doesn’t mention plugins anywhere, but the tables below do.

The text formatting below the images are messed up.

In the second code sample, there is an extra bracket on the end of an if statement.

https://gyazo.com/2d74e5ad8d4e2d35fe7ff8b9631ae7b6

The final bracket is not valid.

The phrase [ smooth terrain using the table format"> ] appears at the very top of the page, alongside a long, dark blue bar. You can find it in the article titled Terrain:WriteVoxels.

Typo

I found a typo here: https://developer.roblox.com/en-us/api-reference/function/RunService/BindToRenderStep

In the “Bind and Unbind a Function” code sample, there are comments that go from Step 1, then to Step3 and Step 3 again. It should be Step 1, Step 2, Step 3.
