New Rank Advicer?

I'm a bit lost.... what is an Advicer? Is it meant to be Adviser or Advisor (Depending on where you learnt your English).

I tried Googling Advicer and nothing came up... Or is this meant to be a proper noun?

More info

 

http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/adviser

 

  • In the UK, Ireland and Asia the spelling is traditionally adviser, though US spelling advisor is becoming increasingly common. In the US, Associated Press style is adviser, and most newspapers and some magazines follow that spelling, while US federal government style, other government agencies, and many businesses prefer advisor. News organizations around the world may change spelling found in sources, even in quoted material. US book publishers may be less likely to change spelling in quoted material because the practice is contrary to The Chicago Manual of Style.

Re: New Rank Advicer?

I get the difference between Advisor and Adviser, which is why I mentioned "depending on where you learnt your English".

 

My reason for bringing this up is because I received a private message from the Forum saying this:

They spelt Advisor with a "C" which is very odd to me...
