For minor fixes in existing help. Can these be put in separately from the eventual omnibus ticket for changed help tabs due to changed/new features in 3.3? Trying to fit everything old and new into one patch can lead to tiny typos in the release; see: ticket #17753

4 small changes from sweep of grammar/usage/style in multisite help tabs

I don't think these text changes are ideal.

For example I think that roles and passwords should stay in the singular because we are referring to the role and the password for an individual user.

Westi: were you seeing non-ideal changes in the other 3 tabs?

Looking deeper at this one, I think some of these UI behaviors are more complex than this tab describes.

So that we are not mixing singular and plural, how about:

You can use the dropdown menu to change the role of one or more users and click the hover links under each user name to Edit the User Profile, such as changing a password, or Remove that user. You can also remove an user from the site via Bulk Actions but either method does not remove the user from the network.

Here's my take on these edits.

The choice of subdirectory sites is disabled if this setup is more than a month old because of permalink problems with “/blog/” from the main site. This disabling will be addressed in a future version.

Let's keep this as it is and not promise a release schedule in the Help tab :)

You can re-sort the list order by clicking on any bold table headings.

Sounds good to me :)

A user without a site will only see Dashboard and My Sites in the main navigation until a site is created for him or her.

Non-site user is an add term that could be taken a few ways. A user not on the current site? A user without a site? Let's be explicit here, rather than making up more terms for users to learn.

This displays the users associated with this site. You can also change each user's role, reset a user's password, or remove a user from the site. Removing a user from the site does not remove the user from the network.

Does this work for tense-friendliness?

Bulk Edit is an admin-wide feature that probably shouldn't be explained as a different method of doing one thing. "Removing a user" refers to any method used to do so.

I think this ticket should be closed as it is duplicated by the more comprehensive and recent #19020. My bad. I opened this up to try to get a few fixes in earlier in the cycle to reduce the load in beta. That so didn't work.

Chexee: thanks for the feedback! See more recent versions of these and many others in the newer ticket. Note that the current version re: your first point is even more promisey. We could cut out "soon" or the whole sentence.
