I'm not a big fan of the title. Maybe something like how do I customize my URL of my entry or something like that?

They'll probably just use faq search, but I see your point. Maybe flip word order? How do I change the URL of my entry using a slug, perhaps?

Technical term or not, it is confusing, especially as it is something that other sites of our variety don't have. That being said, I think the body of the FAQ Explains fairly clearly what a slug is. If we run into a lot of confusion down the road then we can reevaluate. Fair?

I agree with this FWIW, I know exactly what the term means but others were completely clueless, while people using the update page may see the feature if they select customise and see the option, I suspect most will come to it trying to figure out how to do what their friends have already done or similar, and if they don't know what a slug is in the first place...

I second that. I don't know if the term is used enough that it's newbie-friendly but I highly doubt it's non-native-speaker friendly as it's very jargon-y. Before I googled it the only slugs I knew were either animals or bullets. And the interface doesn't help understand what this is about. Like at all. How about a double title like for cuts? This way more people can understand what the FAQ is about and find it via search.

Related question-is there an API for clients implemented? I'd love it if Andrew's linkposter did it but he'd have to know how to implement it.

Fair enough. Planned for some point, or I need to go to Suggestions?

That makes sense-so basically need to find someone that's likely to be able to understand what's needed and work on it. Or learn a huge amount of stuff in a language I can't get my head around...
