You have inconsistent usage of the terms Log On, Log In, Log Out, etc. They all mean the same thing as applicable, however, it's standard practice to use one or the other, not BOTH.

Log On, Log Off are pairs and Log In, Log Out are accepted pairs. Log On and Log Out is somewhat unusual, however both Log On is used on the home page + one other pw screen and then Log In is used in the other pw location as well as the documentation which skips the blank and used login as the spelling.

This is not a problem for those of us used to these terms, however, when writing documentation for classmates, it gets confusing when these terms are not used consistently.

Please make the documentation and the links use the SAME terms. I don't care which pairs or even if they are not the accepted pair, just not various forms in different places.

Yes it's being picky, but for a novice this gets confusing guys and girls.
