Hi Jane --

Here's the link to the WikiProject Illinois. We'll have to get one going for Louisiana too. Murphynw 23:52, 1 March 2011 (UTC)

Page adopters

Hi Jane, Just letting you know that I have added a Userbox to your User page as an example of a new feature that I have built in to the adoption templates, whereby if added to a user page a userbox will be displayed. If you would rather not have this userbox on your page, then please go ahead and remove it. --Steve 12:40, 22 December 2010 (UTC)

Getting Started pages project

Thanks for volunteering to help with the Getting Started pages project! I have been working on the Help:Tour page and was wondering if you could come share your thoughts - what concepts are needed for a "Tour" of the wiki?  Here is a Sandbox page with the general idea. Feel free to add your own edits/thoughts. 

Also, thanks for the changes to the Edit and Contribute page. I moved things back over into a 2-column format. But...the formatting might make it harder to edit. Thoughts? Also, was thinking that those little edit boxes all over the page are a little annoying and maybe we should turn those into bold text instead of headings. Thoughts? Anyway, the page needs more but I am very happy with it so far!

Community Center is next..... --janellv 23:51, 24 February 2011 (UTC)
