Inconsistency

Is anyone else mildly bothered when they see that it's 'Latin Forums' in the top bar, but 'Latin Fora' on the bar on the white bit? No, I didn't think so. Well, you will be now.

Both 'Latin Forums' and 'Latin Fora' are in English. They can't very well be Latin, can they?

I've noticed this before and found it inconsistent, but not annoyingly so ;)

A lot of the shop-front material on the forum was put together (probably quite quickly) many years ago by people who are largely no longer with us. I don't think anyone would argue with the claim that in places it would benefit from a rewrite.

Personally I'd never noticed that forums-fora thing. I don't find it particularly annoying. They're both perfectly valid variants, and why couldn't you alternate as you feel like, after all?

I changed some of them. Let me know if you find any that annoy you.

I somehow liked it better when it said "forums" up there ...

It should say "Categories" or "Topics", not forums... This IS a forum. One forum.

I thought it was a German typo, ‘cause here we ask the big questions, or Warums, of this world.

I don't miss the button, but I'm kind of visually disturbed by the shrinking of it. :D

The inconsistency didn't really bother me as such, but the Home button did, because we've all clicked absent-mindedly on it, and now it's gone.

I can't believe other people aren't loudly celebrating this.

A Pyrrhus victory ... I need to get used to the "Fora" button now.
