Moderators and Adopters

  • Moderator Form:
    Add:  If so, what has been your experience?

             Style Guide

  • Welcome!  Feedback/questions from moderators or adopters on the call:


  • The ability of allowing users to delete pages - A great effort has taken place to understand the need to delete pages for those on the User Guidance team.  These are the basic reasons:

· The title has changed multiple times so it has become confusing to the users

· The article was created in error

· Two collections have been combined so the article has been combined with another article

· The article is a duplicate with only a slightly different title and it causes a problem with the links to the collection

This request will be forwarded to the Community Council to come up with the best policy/plan going forward.

Wiki Content

  • Reminder:  Requests or decisions that involve changes to policy, procedures, etc. will be forwarded to the Community Council for review.
  • Google has changed analytics. How does this effect the Wiki pages?  Is a part of the discussion.
  • LDS Tech Conference Registration
  • Meeting Place no longer allows Guests to have the system call them.
