FAQ Changes

I've offered to help with FAQ maintenance, and jproulx has kindly accepted that offer. This is the first batch of changes; more will come.

The following minor changes have been made to FAQs to smooth out phrasings, fix typos, and/or correct grammatical problems:



http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=5:
"However, each free account needs to be given an authorization code before being created." --> "However, in order to create an account, you will need an authorization code."

http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=55:
change - to : for internal consistency

http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=70:
"not like other online calendars in that it is not" --> "not like other online calendars, in that it is not"

http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=47:
"easy to use" --> "easy-to-use"
"If you do not have nor want to enable your message boards, you will have to make use of the calendar view of your journal, located at http://www.livejournal.com/users/username/calendar/ , where 'username' is your unique LiveJournal username" --> "If you do not have your message boards enabled, and don't want to enable them, you will have to use your Calendar view. This is located at http://www.livejournal.com/users/username/calendar/ , replacing "username" with your LiveJournal user name."
"(Don't worry if you do not enable your message boards; people will still not be able to comment in your journal)." --> "(Don't worry; if you do not enable your message boards, people will still not be able to comment in your journal.)"
"seperate" --> "separate"

http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=36:

"The URL LJ sends will look something like: (this is a null register; it will return a result you can't use)" --> "The URL that LiveJournal sends will look something like this. This is an example, and will return a result you can't use:"
"do have an expire time" --> "do expire"
"another one might need to be issued" --> "another one will need to be issued"

http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=111
"User pictures are viewable throughout the LiveJournal site and unlike individual journals they cannot be hidden so they are potentially available to anyone on the Internet." --> "User pictures are viewable throughout the LiveJournal site, and unlike individual journals, they cannot be hidden. They are potentially available to anyone on the Internet."

http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=66:
"domain name;" --> "domain name:"



All of the above changes have been marked as "Typo (no notify)" for translators.

The following minor phrasing changes have been made, to bring the FAQs in line with the latest site changes or to reflect the fact that many clients other than the Windows client are beginning to contain more advanced features:


http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=126:
"Using the Windows client" --> "Using a downloaded client"

http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=61:
"Most pages which list your friends do not include friends who have deleted their journals." --> "Friends who have deleted their journals will be displayed on your User Information page with their names crossed out."

http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=71:
"closing your browser" --> "quitting your browser" (all instances)

http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=24:
"want assigned to that entry" --> "want to assign to that entry"
"The Windows client also supports a "Custom" security level." --> "Many clients also support a "Custom" security level."



All of the above changes have been marked as "Minor (notify translators)" for translators.

I will make a further post with additional proposed changes to FAQs that are more major, for discussion purposes, sometime within the next few days. Additionally, the typo/grammar/phrasing updates will probably be ongoing over the next several weeks.
