But it might not be accurate. The current language is actually grammatically correct - it is a shortened form of "Did you forget your password?", with the subject aligned to the related text above it. That text above it is a shortened form of "Do you need an account?", with the shortening being a drop of "do/did you" - i.e., the subject of the sentence is you. If it were changed to "Forgot your password?" but read after the sentence above that presumes-and-shortens-out the "Do you", it might be read as "Did you forgot your password?". So it sounds as if both sentences would need changing together to a complementary "I need/forgot", or they can stay as they are. - - Karsten - -- name: Karsten 'quaid' Wade, Sr. Community Architect team: Red Hat Community Architecture & Leadership uri: http://communityleadershipteam.org http://TheOpenSourceWay.org gpg: AD0E0C41 -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.11 (GNU/Linux) Comment: Using GnuPG with Mozilla - http://enigmail.mozdev.org/ iD8DBQFO3+My2ZIOBq0ODEERAiSVAJ46NO+rFPpRYjWAHa8K7j14enMMFgCeJHlz y/qfJf1fweF0cOsvU0vJ+NI= =A2ar -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- -- websites mailing list websites@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx https://admin.fedoraproject.org/mailman/listinfo/websites
