With much edit experiences, I've seen a common mistake by all the newbie is typing "WordPress" as "Wordpress" or "wordpress".

Is it feasible that we have a bot account to correct only the mistakes in the spelling of "WordPress".

Disclaimer: I know in a site of code, and bugs it's not mandatory to type the name of a program or CMS in a right way. It's just a thought.

Auto-correction is difficult and error prone. What should that do with the string wordpress when it is part of a code fragment – just without proper indentation?

And Wordpress with a lower case p could be a statement, not an error. We have suggested edits and a review queue. Humans can judge these cases better than any software. I think we should not change user input automatically.

  • "Wordpress" inside a code fragment would be excluded by simply a <pre> or <code> tag. We will let the bot change all but the texts inside the <pre>...</pre> and/or <code>...</code> tag. Commented Sep 11, 2013 at 9:16

    Many new users post code without proper formatting. Impossible to detect.
