Typo in FAQ for Technet Forums RRS feed

  • Question

  • New My Settings Page
    Users wee a My Links box in the right column when they are signed in. This box contains many useful user specific links. One of these, My Settings takes the user to a page listing their forum contributions and forum specific settings. Users can change defaults for viewing threads as flat or threaded lists, choose to turn off automatic updates, change the default for signing up for alerts whenever they post, decide whether they want to see Answers at the top of all threads by default, turn off tagging and update their signature

    This is the url http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/help for the faq and this is the url of the FAQ in question http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/help#403

    I have highlighted the problem in bold.

    Never ever approach a computer saying or even thinking "I will just do this quickly".

  • The typo is the second word. Instead of "wee" it should be "will see". Perhaps the is a new MS abbreviation? :)

  • I don't think it took 2 years to fix :) Just to verify that the fix was done.

    True. I just saw that no one verified it yet. I'm not 100% sure when it was fixed, because that page has been updated many times over the past few years.

     

    Thanks!
