Nice find in gazetteer article, Patsy!
Hey, great find on your gazetteer article that Google Books has that Maryland gazetteer! I'm going to add this to the Did You Know section of the Maryland Portal. Ritcheymt 22:32, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
Hey there, Patsy! I noticed you've done some great work on Maryland Bibliography -- thanks! As the barn raising winds down, I want to get a feel for how each article on the Maryland Barn Raising Tasks is coming along so I can tell where to allocate any help that contributors can give for a last push. Could you either send me a message by editing my User Discussion page or go to the Maryland Barn Raising Tasks page and update the column on the % of "doneness" the article is at now?
Maryland Gazetteers and Naturalization and Citezenship
On the Maryland Barn Raising Tasks page I just noticed your name beside Maryland Gazetteers and Maryland Naturalization and Citizenship. Could you give an update on the chart as to % completion on these articles, too? Ritcheymt 17:24, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

Census Project Backlog Prioritization
Could you take a look at the Requirement Backlog (second table) on FamilySearch Wiki:WikiProject U.S. Census and rank the requirements/stories in priority order? You can do this by the Delphi method: Give the lowest amount of points (1) to the lowest-priority item and the highest (41? 42?) to the highest-priority item. We're doing this individually because it's so hard to get everyone together for a meeting. We need to get this done by the end of the day Monday 30 June so each individual can choose their stories and plan their tasks for the sprint.
After we tally the points for each item, we'll re-sort the backlog in priority order. Then we'll individually choose stories we want to attack during the sprint. Thanks! Ritcheymt 12:32, 26 June 2009 (UTC)
Some users have reported that the red color of the article title links in search results are confusing because in a Mediawiki site, a red link means a link to a page that has no content. There is a poll on the forums as to whether to make the links blue instead, which would also conform to what Google and Bing do. Please read the thread/explanation and vote.
