how to suggest changes/updates to FAQs

Oddly enough, there appears to be no FAQ on how to bring any errors/omissions/needed changes/suggested improvements in the FAQs to the attention of the appropriate team, although trixieleitz points out that there's a passing mention in How can I help? and a more specific mention in What are the official LiveJournal communities?

I don't think that I'd be able to find those if I didn't know what I was looking for. "How do I suggest changes or updates to the FAQ?" is a different and more specific question than either of those. (The practice of making a Giant All-Encompassing FAQ of Doom is an honored tradition, but I think it's quite justly found frustrating by someone who has a question that really doesn't at all match any of the titles. Having now looked at shorter FAQs in actual use, it's so much easier as a user that I could cry.)

How do I suggest changes or updates to the Frequently Asked Questions?

To suggest a change to the English version of a FAQ, contact the Documentation team in lj_userdoc.

To suggest a change to the FAQ in another language, find the translation community for your language and contact the translation team in that community.
