Improve the Wiki

What if we start making weekly offers to contribute our skills to other state projects? We each have skill sets that we have developed, such as finding courthouse pics, library addresses, adding infoboxes, historical population tables, breadcrumb trails, etc. Why not collaborate by offering to help out in each other's projects? I'll make the first offer. Murphynw 04:58, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

Comments added since last week:

Outstanding discussion items (Forum issues, Policies/Manual of Style, etc.)

  • Old 'Research Outlines': Any left that have not been ported over to the Wiki? Found out the plan is to close down 'Classic' FamilySearch.org at or around the end of March.
  • Any issues related to the digitized books links on account of the same matter above? Things like linking to them will be important, heard they were not on the updated version of FamilySearch.org yet.


Thumbs up/down ratings

  • What is the best way to share this info with the general public? We don't need to bring this up each week. If we upload it to the Wiki, where should it be linked to from? The Projects page? We do need volunteers to review this info. janellv
