Found you! MwaaaaHaHaHaHaHaaaaaaa!

Hey Ana, this is your friendly neighborhood workmate, stalking you in a place where you didn't even know you could be stalked! Ain't community great? :)

As I was thinking of sending you some links to background stuff that'd familiarize you with the wiki, it occurred to me that there's so much to know that between messages I'd probably forget what I'd already sent you. So I thought I'd add to this page the links to stuff you may wanna know. RitcheyMT 17:20, 11 April 2011 (UTC) 

Some light reading

Actually it'll feel more like reading War and Peace, so don't try this after lunch.

  • FamilySearch Wiki:Introduction tells why we built the wiki and what problems we were trying to solve.
  • FamilySearch Wiki:Purpose and Appropriate Topics gives the scope of the wiki.
  • FamilySearch Wiki:Accuracy and collaboration attempts to convince potential contributors and FamilySearch staff that relinquishing control and writing collaboratively is actually a good thing.
  • Help:Edit and Contribute links to articles telling how to use most aspects of the editing tools. For advanced stuff that's not linked there, go straight to MediaWiki.org.
  • Tip: Save often when you're editing wiki articles. I usually save after every paragraph. I also click the WikiText button, press Ctrl-A, then Ctrl-C before each save in case something goes wrong and I need to paste a copy of the article from the clipboard into a new edit window. There's a long editing timeout (it may be about 40 mins. now), but I'm just sayin'....
  • Special:SpecialPages links to many pages that'll help you see who is participating in the site and how.
  • Community Catalyst Team's 2011 Objectives are, well, yeah.

That oughta get you started. RitcheyMT 17:20, 11 April 2011 (UTC)
