Under Registering, this sentence is used:

"You also have the option to hide you email address from everyone except the administrator, it option is selected by default but you can allow others to see your email address by selecting the 'Allow other users to view my email address' checkbox on the registration form."

Under Smilies, the word which "oops" represents, should be spelled "embarrassed".

Under Using HTML, this sentence is used:

"If HTML is on, you may use any HTML tags, but please be very careful that you proper HTML syntax." Could "use" have been omitted?

Under Using BB Code, the term "BBCode" is used many times. If the words are separate in the title, why not in the text?

In Moderators, this sentence has a typo: "Admins and forum moderators reserve the right to close or delete any post that does not provide a clear and purposefull topic." By the way, what does Admins mean? Is that a term of art?

In Customizing Using Preferences, this sentence has 2 typos: "By doing this we create a way to keep track of who you are when you visit the forum, therefor you can customize the look of the forum by selecting from the themes that the administration has provided." Then, in the very next sentence, see: "Also, if the administrator allows it you may have the option of creating new themes for the fourms".

In Editing Your Posts, see the following sentence: " Also, for up to 30 mins after you have posted you message the edit post screen will give you the option of deleteing that post."

In Adding Signatures, see: "Also, for up to 30 mins after you have posted you message the edit post screen will give you the option of deleteing that post."

In Attaching Files see: "File attachements will be included in a future version of phpBB."

In Lost User Name and/or Password, see: "In the even that you lose your password you can click on the "Forgotten your password?" link provided in the message posting screens next to the password field."

In conclusion, may I enter a personal objection to the wording at the top of each page, not just FAQ, where you use the term: Memberslist? That's irritating [just one man's opinion]. Can't you possibly use two words rather than run them together? That's enough for tonight!!!!!!

Thank you. We haven't customized the FAQ for this bboard yet. I'll forward your notes off to the maintainers of the bboard software.
