Version / Changelog navigation templates order / verbiage unification

We have three templates for navigating the Version and/or Changelog pages: Each of these is a table with links to pages of it's respective type, and each includes a list of the three types at the top of the table for ease of navigation between these related topics, however the list of these three topics at the top of the table is in a different order / wording in each template. These are as follows (respectively): I'd like to suggest that the three of these be given a consistent order, and verbiage. In particular, I like this order:
"Versions / Official Changelogs / Community Changelogs"
However, I don't mind if a different order / wording is chosen, as long as the same order is used across all three templates, as I'm primarily bothered by the lack of consistency.

FWIW, I agree with your proposal to make them all ""Versions / Official Changelogs / Community Changelogs""

Thank you. Hopefully someone who has access to edit those templates will agree.
Also, I continued thinking about this, and I wonder if "Versions / Technical Changelogs / Community Changelogs" would be better. IDK.

I changed the last one to fit the above discussion as it was the only one not protected. Now if someone with elevated privileges will edit the first 2 to match, it would be good.

Now, I hope the bolding is left since that lets the user know which one is selected. The idea there is for the current page to be the highlighted heading. With only that difference, I say we should use the aforementioned order.

OK, but it's the other two that I needed help with, as they're protected.

Done. ;)

Yes, it works nicely now, and you can treat the headings like tabs. I'm glad you called that to our attention. You might want to change/remove your sig.

After looking more closely at those pages due to your edits, I see that they really need someone to review the grammar used on them.
Looking at the history of these pages, it apparently has been like this for quite a while, so please see this as a 'thank you for bringing attention to the problem', but these pages really need a native English speaker to review them and fix up the grammar.

I'll try to take some time to write up the issues I see in each page's discussion page soon.
