FAQ 62 - Comment notifs

Two sections of FAQ 62 need some work:

Since enable/disable comments isn't a checkbox anymore, the bulleted list should be retooled a bit.

I'm not really sure how to handle old system vs new system notifications, but right now the emphasis is on old-system notifs and the new system is a bit of an afterthought; they seem like they should get at least equal weight, but either way I think that whole section needs a rewrite.

Account Setting Smackdown!

A while back, jai_dit started a Smackdown on FAQs that needed updating because they still pointed to the old "comment settings" or "viewing options" pages.

I've done those that I was priv-authorized to do, plus I wanted to notify y'all about one other one:

* FAQ 259

* FAQ 277

* FAQ 283

* FAQ 286

* FAQ 50, http://community.livejournal.com/lj_userdoc/757269.html

I have an RFC on these other two that I also did:

* In FAQ 131 and FAQ 263, I used the wording "Ability to receive notifications when the "I comment in someone's journal, on any entry*" option is selected (on the Notifications tab of the My Account Settings page)" and I'm not sure if I like it... It used to be something like "Ability to receive emailed copies of comments I make", which of course is not the wording any more.


* I tried to do the variable-ize thing so that it would say the actual option that was listed (such as "I comment in someone's journal, on any entry*" being ".setting.selfcommentemail.option*" in the code) but I could not for the life of me get it to work when the pages were /manage/settings/?cat=notifications or /manage/settings/?cat=display or /manage/settings/?cat=privacy ... Anyone know how to do that?
