Carryover from Last Week

"Quick History" vs "History"

Apparent some users are having difficulty recognizing the difference between "Quick History" and "History" as used in "Resources" Section. The word "Quick" was added to address the difference, it reflects brief links to certain offsites such as Wikipedia, GNIS and sometimes county government's history page (like Adams County, Idaho has.)

It is confusing if there are two "History" on same page. This was brought to my attention about 3 months ago. I brought it up with other moderators personally, felt it was needed to clarify the difference.

Eventually I hope the coding for "Infobox" like the ones in the Wikipedia I showed some time ago in users meeting become available and working within the Wiki, that will contain this section along with "Courthouse" stuff, even map(s). dsammy 15:54, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

Grab the stuff from last week

Most if not all items on discussion page from 17 February's meeting.  These were not able to be taken care of due to the issues described on the Minutes page for that meeting.  However, a workaround relating to that problem is also mentioned on the Minutes page for that meeting as well.  JamesAnderson 21:47, 17 February 2009 (UTC)
