Wilma, what do you think about having a page that shows a list of completed Wiki projects?  And do you have any suggestons for showing that a project is finished - especially when searching.  Should the title be changed with "finished" at the end or something?  I'm putting together a spreadsheet of all the projects I can find with their current status, leader, etc. [[User:Averyld|averyld]] 22:07, 7 December 2012 (UTC)

WA: Check out the recording of the Researching in the Wiki class that Jan Edwards taught in Meetingplace. She did a great job and pointed out items that are in the Wiki that many of us have probably overlooked. Go to Meetingplace and look for past meetings for 2323, on Sept. 6th at 6:00 PM. (It might have been listed as 5:45).

*Replace the "__" with the name of the current county so it will link to the libraries section of that county.

*Copy the line again (since it now has the current county name)—everything from <nowiki>{{FHLTopicLink}} including the period at the end of public libraries<nowiki>]]</nowiki>.

*Some things to also fix: the link should be to the most basic topic, not to sub-topics, such as Indexes or Inventories,...

**Also get rid of the repetitious "Records of..."

**Also saw &nbsp; in the county link sometimes. Fix that if found.

I wouldn't want to mess up existing plans for this project plus I have plenty of other wiki duties on my plate, therefore I will mention this to you to work into your plan somehow.<br>
  
Wasn't clear what you mean about Make Libraries a heading and move all resource repositories up alpha, so I didn't do that. [[User:ElizabethSnow|Liz Snow]] 21:03, 10 April 2012 (UTC)

Be aware that Utah stillbirths are kept separate from Utah death records and have different limitations. This information is not readily available on the state VR website. A separate form is required to obtain a stillbirth record for a closest nearest relative, these aren't released to the general public until 70 (75?) years after the stillbirth, and the exact year needs to be known (if under the 70-75 year limit; even though a range of years is acceptable for searching for a death record). No doubt there is other information that warrants being mentioned relating to this subject.<br>

Hi Wilma. Got a favor to ask of you. Going forward, will you please add edit summaries to your edits? This'll save me time from having to compare revisions each time I'm working on a page you're also working on. Thanks! [[User:RitcheyMT|RitcheyMT]] 05:24, 27 June 2011 (UTC)

== Edit Problems  ==
+
 
+
Your changes this afternoon to https://wiki.familysearch.org/en/Projects_Seeking_Contributors caused the border to be deleted on the United States table. When you made that change were you doing the edit in just that section or did you use the edit button for th whole page? Knowing which way you did the edit may help us understand the cause of the change. [[User:WilliamsDa|Darris G. Williams]] 21:08, 12 July 2011 (UTC)  
+
  
:Hi Darris. All I did was add Utah to the table. I'll admit I was tempted to change the table a bit, but did not. I usually do only the specific section when I edit. Looking at it again, I am certain it was in the specific area where the edits were made.[[User:AdkinsWH|AdkinsWH]] 15:25, 13 July 2011 (UTC)
+
Wilma, are you getting notifications yet? &nbsp;James Tanner got a bunch all of a sudden.[[User:Averyld|averyld]] 14:33, 31 October 2012 (UTC)  
  
Editing in the "section only" opens up a can of worms due to some problems with the FCK editor. It does not see some codes that it expects, then adds them in automatically when you save the work you are doing in that section. If the code existed in the preceding or following section then the page as a whole gets jumbled up. Fran has suggested that the section editing capability be turned off until the FCK editor is fixed but engineering has not moved on either request. It is possible, I think, to turn the section editing off in your preferences or just edit the whole page as a standard practice. We don't know that the disappearing table border is due to editing in the section only and will be reporting this problem for the Support Team to investigate. [[User:WilliamsDa|Darris G. Williams]] 15:57, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

Utah Stillbirths

I wouldn't want to mess up existing plans for this project plus I have plenty of other wiki duties on my plate, therefore I will mention this to you to work into your plan somehow.

Be aware that Utah stillbirths are kept separate from Utah death records and have different limitations. This information is not readily available on the state VR website. A separate form is required to obtain a stillbirth record for a closest nearest relative, these aren't released to the general public until 70 (75?) years after the stillbirth, and the exact year needs to be known (if under the 70-75 year limit; even though a range of years is acceptable for searching for a death record). No doubt there is other information that warrants being mentioned relating to this subject.
