Link to Help:User page

I have changed the link from FamilySearch Wiki:User page to Help:User page. I think this is what Kara was trying to do. --Steve 10:11, 7 January 2010 (UTC)

Restore code to auto-include user name

I have restored the code to auto-include the user name when the template is substituted on a user talk page. I have also added back a link to your contributions and fixed the link to the forums.

I notice that the link behind Search for Articles has been changed from Help:Basic Searches to Search for an article or topic and wondered why? --Steve 07:15, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

Reason for removing links

I don't understand why the edit of 17:34, May 24, 2011 was made to remove several wiki links (ie your contributions)? Would someone please explain the reasoning behind this. Thanks --Steve 19:15, 24 May 2011 (UTC)

Just curious if you have thought about asking the person who changed it? Thomas_Lerman 23:17, 24 May 2011 (UTC)
I'm sorry I changed the links. Janell and I thought the welcome letter to be too long and all the links to be too distracting for a new user. If you want me to, I will put them back in. Vlfunk
Thanks Thomas, thanks Vickie. Reducing the length of the message I can understand, but I think the particular link to their contributions is useful both for the person adding this welcome message and for the new user as it shows them a page they may not have seen before. I will add back this link. --Steve 07:50, 25 May 2011 (UTC)
