Thing is, appearently my mission is good, but since I am not an expert in english spelling and grammar, there will of cause be elements that are not 100% correct.
But people seem to pay alot more attention to spelling and grammar than the actual story, so I would like a way to prepare people for the fact that theese errors might actually appear in dialouges throughout the mission.
Or perhaps just a way to indicate that the missions we are making may be under development and not nessacarily be perfect?
While on the subject: How do you spell "Troubble"? (as in dilemma, issue, problem)
When I review I make a note that the grammar etc wasn't that good, but I always say that I did not mark the mission down on that. I would never mark a mission down based on english language skills because of the international audience of STO, and also because some people may have learning difficulties.
If I were you I would put it in the mission description at the beginning, this would stop people thinking negatively about the dialogue and spelling before the mission starts.
