Why do I need to edit a phrase to set terms?

I would have thought that this would be an option in the options area of XenForo, instead I had to search XenForo.com and find that to edit my "Terms and Rules" I had to edit a phrase? Why is this, it seems awfully unintuitive.

Or have I missed something and just done it the "hard way"? If I may suggest that you move the "Terms" text to the "Basic Board Information" directly underneath where you specify if there will be a terms link in the footer or not..

It's a phrase so it can be translated.

If it was in the ACP Options then it would be a global setting, not language specific.

Yes, but then a spanish webmaster would type terms out in spanish.. and an english one would type it out in english.

I didn't think of translations, if i'm honest, but eh, is there no way to make a text box so it just edits the phrase?

But if the forum has more than one language available then the terms text won't be translated - it will remain in the original language in which it was entered in the ACP.

You could probably do it with an add-on.
