      Description

      There are different spellings for descriptions of forms.

      Sometimes nouns are written in upper cases, sometimes in lower cases.

      Lets define a standard and change it.
      In my opinion this are not headlines and should be written with lower cases.

        More standardization

        First line should be named as 'Name'.
        Description field should be named as 'Description'

        Example:
        Group name / group Description
        Grouping name/ grouping description

        If we have a headline describing the page 'group' or 'Grouping' is redundant.

        Just noting that this remains an issue in Moodle 2.2. For example, chat and choice activities have a description field called 'Introduction text'.

        Hi Helen,

        I can work on a patch for these description fields, are there any other fields which are inconsistent like this?

        Hi Ralph,

        I'm going to close this issue as a lot of work was put into making things more consistent in these forms in Moodle 2.5.

        If there are more specific issues which need addressing,please can you create new issues for them. Thanks,
        dan
