Under the heading

I'm confused! What questions are on-topic for this site?

The CodeReview FAQ states (emphasis mine):

Simply ask yourself the following questions. To be on-topic the answer must be yes to all questions:

  • Does my question contain code? (Please include the code in the question, not a link to it)
  • Did I write that code?
  • Is it actual code from a project rather then pseudo-code or example code?
  • To the best of your knowledge, does the code work?
  • Do you want feedback about any or all facets of the code?

This inconsistent English phrasing needs to be corrected.

  • Either use the first person (my, I) every time,
  • or use the second person (your, you) every time.

Code Review has 4,789 visits every day, and many of these visitors will read the FAQ. At 608 days into public beta, this site should be as professional as possible, so inconsistencies like this matter.

Given the introductory sentence "ask yourself the following questions...", the first option would make sense.

Fixed. Thank you for the report.
