@@ -10,7 +10,7 @@ One of the most celebrated aspects of jQuery is its extensive plugin ecosystem.
The quality of jQuery plugins varies widely. Many plugins are extensively tested and well-maintained, but others are hastily created and then ignored. More than a few fail to follow best practices. Some plugins, mainly [jQuery UI](http://jqueryui.com/), are maintained by the jQuery team. The quality of these plugins is as good as jQuery itself.
-Google is your best initial resource for locating plugins, though the jQuery team is working on an improved plugin repository. Once you've identified some options via a Google search, you may want to consult the jQuery mailing list or the `#jquery` IRC channel to get input from others.

Hey James,
Good idea to change this to plugins.jquery.com. A few suggestions:

  • "an viable plugins" should be "any viable plugins"
  • "jQuery mailing list" should probably be "jQuery forum"?
  • maybe recommend a search on github.com?

Yes, d'oh.

"jQuery mailing list" should probably be "jQuery forum"?

Makes sense, I had just left what was there before but I suppose it should be updated to: jQuery forum

maybe recommend a search on github.com?

Probably a good idea, too. Do we have a recommended order of search platforms or should we just mention all the big ones? e.g. GitHub, Google, Bower, maybe NPM, etc.

I recently updated the wording here, so I'm going to close this.
