    Future language fixes

    The following pages currently exist as redirects to this page in order to keep local language links functional. The Terms of Use have not yet been translated into these languages. When translations to this language are prepared, the redirects will need to be altered accordingly. --Maggie Dennis (talk) 12:20, 25 May 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    Add "summary" in the summary box header

    As pointed out on Meta, the header of the summary box should read "Terms of Use summary", to make it clear that the box's contents are not the entire terms of use. While there are two smaller-type sentences that suggest that same fact, this suggestion seems clear and appropriate. SJ + 09:22, 21 February 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    Missing entries in collapsed section overview on mobile

    In the mobile view of this page on smartphones, the sections "13. Disputes and Jurisdiction", "14. Disclaimers", and "15. Limitation on Liability" are missing in the list of collapsed sections, because of the highlight div surrounding them. (They appear fine in the TOC.) This appears to be caused by phab:T60541.

    Addition of text to section 4

    Per this RfC on meta I plan to add the following text after:

    "a statement in the edit summary accompanying any paid contributions."

    "In addition we require those involved with paid editing on Wikipedia to link on their user page to all other active accounts through which they advertise paid Wikipedia editing business. These links may be removed a week after the advertisement for paid Wikipedia editing has been taken down."

    To the Q and A I plan to add:

    "Required linking to accounts involved with advertising paid editing"

    "Claims on Wikipedia that a user has failed to provide a link without solid evidence is considered harassment and is potentially sanctionable. The requirement to link to other sites were these advertisements exist is primarily to be used to address impersonations of Wikipedians in good standing outside of Wikipedia."
