"Note: Please keep modification headings in simple present form, i.e add not adding." (is there wiki syntax for quotes?)
That sentence seems unclear to me. Perhaps something like: "Note: While writing modification instructions, please avoid using the present participle form of the action. Instead, use its present imperative form, i.e. use 'Add' instead of 'Adding,' 'Remove' instead of 'Removing,' etc."
I might have flubbed up the terminology, but that's ok as long as the example is clear.

- Yes, I agree that it's a little unclear. Someone with more knowledge about english grammar might want to formulate the sentence a little better. Keep in mind that "modification headings" are refering to the article name, not headlines inside the article or anything else.

- Oh, I thought you meant headings in instructions. Anyway, I'll see if I can figure out the proper terms (I think I have it right, but I'm not quite sure). Until then, can we at least change the current sentence so that there are quotation marks around "add" and "adding"?
