In response to Lee's requests on how to improve the advertisements and alike for Game-Guru I've been reading all the text on our site. I noticed one small spelling error fulfill is spelt fufill in the first paragraph:

"Have you always dreamed of making a game but have no wish to delve into the mystical realms of programming or 3d art? GameGuru allows you to fufill your dreams in a non technical, fun and extremely easy to share way."

I also didn't get "easy to share way". Perhaps it is suppose to be share with? or Share away?

That's not a spelling mistake, that's the English spelling, your spelling is the American English spelling.

Fulfil vs. fulfill
Fulfill is the American spelling of the verb meaning to accomplish or to satisfy. Fulfil is the preferred spelling outside North America. Both forms are common in Canadian writing.

The spelling preferences extend to fulfilment and fulfillment, but not to fulfilled, fulfilling, and fulfiller, which have two l’s everywhere.


Basically over here in old Blighty (where English was invented ), and most of the continent, it is spelled correctly on the front page

I'm not sure if you see that there is no "L" after the "U" in the spelling on the website "f u f i l l "

I honestly didn't even notice it till I copied over the paragraph into word to see the red underline on it and then I noticed it was missing the "L" after the "U". Kind of like an optical illusion because of the "F".

Ak my bad, no idea how, but I misunderstood you and thought you were saying it was spelt with one L, must stop posting on forums while i'm working it's distracting (the work that is :p ).
