FAMILYSEARCH WIKI POLICY REVIEW

While we will not be revising the following FSW articles, we will be reviewing them, looking for:

  1. Information of a how-to nature that actually belongs in a Help article
    • When this is found, it will be noted on the talk page, and then after discussion (or after a week if there is no discussion) it will be removed to a Help article).
  2. Help articles related to these articles
    • If Help articles are found, we will do interlinking between the articles
    • If Help articles are NOT found, they will be created as needed and then interlinking will be done.
  3. Mirrored Maintenance Templates for the various policies.
    • The policies should be reviewed for whether or not a maintenance template should be created to go on articles to notify when policies are broken.
