Discussion and Proposal page

A page has been created to list ongoing suggestions and ideas that evolve from these meetings. It is hoped that possible changes and projects will not be forgotten, and will eventually reach a resolution. See Community Discussions and Proposals for the list.



Purpose of the meeting

  • To forge solutions with other community contributors.
  • To discuss content, community, best practices, current issues, and strategy.

First half of meeting:

  • Introduce new members
  • Outstanding discussion items that need resolution (Forum issues, Policies/Manual of Style)
  • What are you working on? Do you need people to come in and help?
  • Ratings from Thumbs up/down

Second half of meeting: Rotation of topics

  1. Moderators and adopters: Learn from one another. What are you doing? Obstacles and getting the help to move beyond them. Collaborating.
  2. Training wanted: Add to the agenda early so experts and interested parties can be specifically invited
  3. Projects needing volunteers:
  4. Improve the Wiki: Resolve current issues and pending decisions
  5. Open: add your own agenda items



Historical Perspective

The Contributor's meeting was spurred by discussions from the Contributor's Corner Forum, including:

  • Define the roles of moderators and adopters and the impact upon other contributors
  • Discuss content isssues, such as the manual of style, creating informative links, and more.
  • Share best practices, ideas, and suggestions
  • Move from talk to decision and implementation

The Technical Meeting previously handled many of these issues. It has recently evolved into technical issues that may not interest all contributors.

Stay Informed

Stay informed by visiting and adding your comments to the Wiki Contributor's Corner forum. Discussions in the forum are not just talking to be talking. You will be a vital part of making community decisions that affect the FamilySearch Wiki and its users.
