of fun with it. I have just a few items for your consideration in the
traditional EDIT (must be fixed); Edit (should be considered, but left to
your judgment whether to revise); Comment (something to think about or just

the site. Thanks!

over time if specific pages change. Consider instead mentioning that the
user name and PIN must be entered via a page within the main
NOTE: If any moderators read this and can clarify whether this guideline
has changed, please do clarify. Thanks!
