Pavilion misspelt in "What is it?"

Glad to see the What is it? section has been expanded, but the Structure - Pavillion entry is misspelt.

Proper spelling is "Pavilion" (one ell)




Pavillion is not listed as an alternative spelling in any dictionary I've checked.

    When Deutsch is selected as the language on the device, that's how it should be spelled in the game.

    In old Français I think 2 ells is correct, also.

    My bug report was not written in - or about - either of those languages, though.

    When reviewing and I have to choose the of wayspot category, the word Pavilion is spelt as "Pavillion", with 2 x L instead of one. If you believe the word "pavillion" is correct, please change it in your guideline where under "Examples of wayspot categories" it is written as Pavilion (and not pavillion).

    Whilst it is now considered obsolete and nonstandard, the double L spelling of pavilion is still listed in the dictionary, and is still used in some proper names for various theatres, hotels and such.

    Several people have brought this issue up previously and honestly, of all the issues with Wayfarer, I don't get why this one seems to bother people when it is still technically a valid spelling haha

    I agree with OP that this is annoyingly unprofessional and is just going to cause more spelling errors in the database.

    The world P A V I L L I O N does not exist in the English language. I write this in all caps to emphasize the word does not have two L's.

    It only has 1 L [P A V I L I O N] and as of two years later this is still not fixed. Is there someone that should be pinged to fix a simple error such as this? A lot of people will assume this spelling is correct then go on to correct other entries with the incorrect spelling. In fact I just saw an entry where it was asking whether the title should include "Pavillion" or "Pavilion".

    Straighten this out please.
