Typos on the sites content
« on: 20:59, Fri 29 July 2011 »
Hi Web Admins

I had a look to see if this topic already existed but alas i couldn't find it,
I am by no means a grammar or spelling freak but i thought it might be a good idea to have a topic where people can point out typos and other oddities on the site (which is good and informative i might add) or reword sections to improve the site further,

anywho there is a couple of area's on the maintenance page which could do with a spruce,

capital B on boost on line

"two reasons either the Boost has been"

some instances of the word turbo start with a capital T and some lower case?

no content for

>>> How to fit a Dump Valve  
also its a dead link,

some funky wording at the bottom on the clutch topic

"wear your clutch cable of wear your clutch."

i was thinking something like

"Try not to rest your foot on the clutch pedal as this could stretch the clutch cable or wear the thrust bearing"


these are just my suggestions other people may have a better suggestion or this topic may be closed and deleted for ever ;)

please don't think oh hes just being picky and has nothing better to do,
this is the site/forum improvement section

:)

i like the site and its always my first stop for R5 turbo info

(typos in the forum don't count i make loads of these and there is probably a few in my text above :P )

Alterations to the website itself will need to be done by Lee.

Here's one that's bugged me for ages. If you click 'profile' under anyone's post they don't exist. You have to go into PM user then click their name then you get to the profile page for them (finally)

It's just a small programming error which needs to be adjusted in posts the same as it is on the PM page.

wrong:   memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&;u=223

right:  memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=223

and not really typo related but I'm always getting kicked off after being signed in for about 30 seconds! I'll try and post a reply and I find I've been kicked off.... then! I click 'board index' and lo and behold under 'who is online' there I am, although if I try and post it makes me sign in??!! :?  :?
My favourite one is when I'm signed in and I've just finished composing a nice long reply or PM to someone and go to send it and hey presto - not signed in anymore! Click back a page and webpage has expired!!! :lol:

Guys cheers for pointing them out...

Typos I will get them changed later as things like that annoy me... Well spotted !!

The programming error I will look into as its not right.

As for updating the site, I am currently updating parts of it. If you look at the homepage im updating it and was going to ask you guys if theres anything you think should be on there. As for other content on the site if you guys would like to contribute to any content and be creditted with it thats fine.
