Little Typo.

FAQ 102, last paragraph:

If you delete a custom group, any entries made to that group will still have the "custom" security set, but it won't be set to any particular group. The effect of this is that no one but you has permissions to view these entries; so even though they is not marked private, they are effectively private. Additionally, if you recreate the group with the same name, the entries will not automatically be set to that group again. If you would like to change the security level of the entry or set it to a new custom group, you'll have to go back and edit the entry (http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=2).

Change "is" to "are" and you're all set. :)

faq 139

I'm just looking at FAQ #139 ("Is adding someone to my Friends list against the Terms of Service?") and really don't like this wording:

If you have been added to the Friends list of someone else, LiveJournal offers tools to assist you in dealing with a harassing user (http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=108) and also offers security options (http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqcat=security). Therefore, LiveJournal will not take action against users for adding someone to their Friends list.

The "if you have been added to the friends list of someone else" part seems to be new. It sounds extremely awkward though because it implies to me that you can automatically contact lj_abuse whenever somebody else adds you to their friends list. Why not take it out again?

LiveJournal offers tools to assist you in dealing with a harassing user (http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=108) and also offers security options (http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqcat=security). Therefore, LiveJournal will not take action against users for adding someone to their Friends list.

Sounds better to me. Or is there a flaw in my logic?

FAQ 31

Patrick (http://www.livejournal.com/userinfo.bml?user=patrick) is often looking for volunteers to help sort through the Topic Directory. Anyone wishing to help out is welcome. Patrick posts in these communities when he is looking for volunteers to help with the Topic Directory. However, if he's not currently looking for volunteers, the discussions in the lj_biz community cover plenty of other things that you could help out with.

Patrick posts in which communities exactly?

A few minor things

Hi.

1) http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=22
Perhaps we should add a note that the "Save Changes" button at the bottom must be clicked for the changes to take effect? We do that in Support, so I suppose some users forget or just don't know?

2) http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=142
"You may need to refresh your browser"
I think the user should rather refresh the page, or click the Refresh button in their browser. :)

Also, the correct URL for the Invite page is http://www.livejournal.com/invite/ (notice the trailing slash). I've mentioned this here before, have I?... For those that don't know: I know this is nitpicky, but if this got changed, it'd save LJ some bandwidth, and the users could reach the page quicker. It makes all the more difference for free users who don't have access to the faster servers.

exampleusername and comm links.

FAQ #50 links to sampleusername.livejournal.com, although all of the other FAQs link to exampleusername or yourusername. That should be changed.

Also, all journal links are now supposed to go to the /userinfo.bml page. Because of that, the following FAQs all need editing.

Collapse )

Since those each should be changed to /userinfo.bml links, my trailing slash post no longer applies to them. I'll edit it accordingly.

In addition, there's a typo in FAQ #102. A link in the 4th paragraph goes to examplerusername. The extra "r" needs to be removed.
