Was the typo in "Eclipsed" ironic?
Also that's miscapitalization more than misspelling, since it still spells the same thing.

Oh hey thanks for including my project in this, that’s the first time something I did is getting featured!

Maybe more people will see it now!

Also good work of course to the rest of this. Can’t wait to see some hopefully upcoming interviews.

Comes down to the same thing I guess
Also, no. Eclipsed changed his name by one letter for whatever reason, so it's far from a typo.

Oh, it's still Eclipsed on the forums and on their YT channel, so I didn't know. Thanks for letting me know.
