May I offer spelling and grammar suggestions for the Terms Of Service and Registration Agreement Terms?

Terms Of Service

[list]Prepositions, (like "of"), are generally not capitalized in titles, so the title would be better as “Terms of Service”.

The word judgement is a misspelling, should be judgment. Appears twice, both times in a sentence starting, “You accept the administrators of's judgement....”

In the “Yeah, well you know....” paragraph, “wether” is a misspelling. Should be “whether”.

In “By pinging to get listed on the site when your update your blog, you agree to be bound by the following terms of service:” it should be “you update your”.

Registration Agreement Terms

[list]The way the first paragraph is written, the last words, “will not be held liable” take “all posts” as their subject. I know that’s not what you meant. Try this,

[list]Therefore you acknowledge that all posts made to these forums express the views and opinions of the author and not of the administrators, moderators or webmaster (except for posts by these people) and hence neither the administrators, moderators nor webmaster will not be held liable for the posts of others.[/list:u]

In the second paragraph, the word “above” should probably be changed in the sentence,

[list]As a user you agree to any information you have entered above being stored in a database.[/list:u]

I suppose the web page used to present the information form above the Terms. Now the information form is presented only after the terms have been agreed to. How about,

[list]As a user you agree to any information you enter on the Registration Information form being stored in a database.[/list:u]

Well, I installed my second blog ever, used version 2.3.0cr1, and it went rather smoothly. I read what Francios wrote at,

Anyone can contribute... there's so much to do: development of course (PHP, Javascript...) but also graphic design (icons, skins, Flash skins...), translation, documentation, testing, security checking, support... and even evangelism! :) And this list probably isn't exhaustive anyway! ;)

and thought at least I could contribute these suggestions.

The suggestions for Terms of Service have been implemented. Those for Registration Agreement Terms have not.
