Updates and follow up

  • References in the wiki "the question really isn't about whether to use footnote or endnote styles, but rather how to display information so that readers can most effectively glean it."

Let's get this one completed!


New Agenda Items

  • Experimenting and Testing in the Wiki - purpose, style guide, procedures, etc. See The Lean Startup. -- janellv (talk| contribs) 15:02, 19 September 2012 (UTC)
  • 'Source Box' integration with Wiki. It was mentioned in one of the webinars that they were going to add Source Box' to the Wiki, probably not directly in-page but in a way that would allow you to add the page or maybe part of it to your source box and attach it to ancestors like any other source in Family Tree. How might that affect us and what about articles on how best to use articles as sources in Family Tree? JamesAnderson 18:35, 20 September 2012 (UTC)
