Hi Björn,
I'm excited to try out UserWeave. However, please do consider this a trial.
It seems a bit premature to advertise LibreOffice as an active user.

And since I had to sign off on the Terms of Agreement, I'd like to point
out its inadequacies so that you may correct them (smaller grammar
mistakes/typos are put in bold):

I hereby accept explicitly that all the input I make on UserWeave is
automatically – unless I stated something different before

What exactly is meant by "unless I stated something different before"? Does
that mean I can put proprietary data on UserWeave as long as I've released
it elsewhere under a proprietary license before I joined UserWeave?
(I'm sure it doesn't, but given that this is a legally-binding agreement,
this phrase should be worded differently or taken out altogether.)

– licensed according to the conditions of Currently*
,* my textual contributions will be licensed with the CC-by 3.0*.* As an attribution ('by')*,*'' should 
be applied.

Strangely worded. Perhaps it'd be better to say that "I agree to all my
work being attributed to ''".

Data that I collect or generate will currently b*e* licensed with th*e*Open Database License 
(ODbL) v1.0*.*

"licensed under" would be a better phrase

The operators of UserWeave may relicence all my content even with *with*retrospective effect with 
a different license as long as this license
complies with

Is it legal to relicense content with retrospective effect?
I.e. if I release something under CC0, can I relicense it under CC-by-sa
and forbid everyone who has already used my work from using it without an
added attribution and a relicensing of their work?

Expections are all data the has to be particularly protected according to
German or European privacy policy law.

This should say "exceptions". I'd also leave out "particularly", since I'm
not sure what its meaning is in this sentence.
Also, what about any other privacy policy law? If I'm an American, African,
or Asian, shouldn't my privacy be protected according to local law?

This kind of data stays my personal property and will not be seperately
licensed. I am aware of the fact that my entries are publicly accessible. I
hence commit myself to treat my own and the privacy of others carefully and
respectful*ly*. Especially when I conduct studies, I will take care that
the participants are not identifiable.

It also seems some pages are in German only. Since the design team works in
English, could you translate the more important pages?
