Welcome to the wiki, Judy!

Welcome to the team, Judy -- it's good to have you here! As you ramp up on wiki usage, I'll occasionally link articles here that can be helpful to those who are starting out. Ritcheymt 15:54, 10 November 2009 (UTC)

  • One of the things that we FamilySearch employees all struggled with when we first engaged the wiki was transitioning from a heirarchal command-and-control publication management model to a flat, peer-based, consensus-driven community editing model. A document that we've found useful to get our heads in the right paradigm is Etiquette Guidelines. It'll give you a feel for how to work more easily with volunteers in the wiki environment.

Please vote on search result title link color

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.
