Your comments on my page
Just another thank you! AdkinsWH 16:44, 26 June 2013 (UTC) Hi, "Parris1"! I like your picture and that you have so much experience. I had forgotten about the comments "Add everything vs. highlight best sources" put on the Improving the Wiki page back in 2011. Thank you for bringing the question up again.
One of my "soap boxes" has been that people put in everything -- perhaps alphabetically or other way -- and don't help the user see the best options. I have no idea how to tell you to proceed. If the concept has merit, perhaps it could be better written and put on a guidelines or help page somewhere.
Am in process of gathering what is in the Wiki and on the Internet about getting copies of records in a variety of ways: from ordering photocopies, to books or microfilm, hiring record searchers, going there yourself, or hiring a genealogist. The question helps me think of what is best for the user, and to realize I need to examine each item I come across to have any hope of evaluating and highlighting best sources. Painstaking, but if it will be worth it to the user, it's worth it.
Thank you very much, Parris1. I like the way you think and very much appreciate your perspective. Perhaps you could look at the in-process page and give ideas. If interested, I can set up a meeting to actually talk about it -- ideas are easier to experess that way. AdkinsWH 15:31, 9 June 2013 (UTC)
Hi, "Parris1". Thank you for your comment about the tip under Libraries on the Experimental County page. It is any better? AdkinsWH 02:49, 19 April 2013 (UTC) PS: I need this kind of feedback! Thank you again.
It looks like the Doddington, Shropshire page which was where it was directed was deleted by Sandrapond It looks like it should redirect to Dodington but the Dodington page probably should be renamed to Dodington, Shropshire to be consistent with other pages that include the shire name.
I lately added the Welcome Template to the Active Users Page that has a red linked talk page. If there is something I did mistake, don't hesitate let me know.Anupong 12:20, 25 July 2013 (UTC)
