Sortable

Page was way better last week when it was sortable. Now i have to go back to coping and pasting into my own spreadsheet again just so I can sort it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Aprilrobertson (talk | contribs) 19:35, February 13, 2012 (UTC)

Percentages

I'm not clear on the meaning of the percentages. Is it the percent of indexed batches that have been arbitrated? Is it the percent of all batches in the project that have been arbitrated? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Garymaher (talk | contribs) 03:37, September 3, 2011 (UTC)

There needs to be wiki project update pages for each and every project. People have lots of questions and some of the current update pages are somewhere between nonsense and totally useless with no information and almost totally useless.

For instance, the 1930 Puerto Rico Census.. NOTHING.. People have questions on names and other things.. between Project Instructions, the empty Project Updates page, Field Helps, and Basic Guidelines.. there is no answer..

Also, the Civil War Headstones project,  Indiana marriages, Illinois, Chicago- Catholic Church Records... also have no helpful wiki page.

In case you are not familiar... with a wiki update page.. people can ask a question on the discussion tab... and FSI and update/answer the question on the main wiki page for that project.  Here is an example of a Project Update wiki page: https://wiki.familysearch.org/en/FamilySearch_Indexing:_US,_New_England%E2%80%93Naturalization_Index_1791-1906,_Project_Updates

A Update wiki page needs to be created for each project AND the discussion page needs to be created so that people can click on the discussion tab to ask their questions.

Thankyou. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ezink (talk | contribs) 15:50, September 13, 2011 (UTC)

Indexing Projects Update Page

Why do you NOT read what you are saying?

You reference https://www.familysearch.org/learn/wiki/en/FamilySearch_Indexing_Updates


to answer my question of what % of the US Colorado 1885 State Census is INDEXED.The link you sent me tells me what % of the US Colorado State Census is ARBITRATED!  I take it from this scenario that no one knows what % of the Colorado 1885 State Census is INDEXED.

Thanks for nothing.  Or maybe you don't even know the difference between Indexed and Arbitrated?
