    Hello AAO Wiki!

    I would like to create a new blog post regarding the use of the words "you" and "your". Please avoid using them if possible because they appear informal. We need to make this Wiki as professional as we can, so please consider writing in third person and not second person. Don't even think about first person.

    • "You can..." replaced with "It is possible..." or "One can..."
    • "Your trials..." replaced with "One's trials..." or "The user's trials..."
