Discussion items

Carryover from Last Week

  • Encouraging new contributors -- Darris Williams
  • "Articles Needed" Page: Is the timing right to do this? -- James Anderson
  • Moderators, etc.

This item is from the one of the May meetings:

  1. What should we be doing to help with user needs?
    1. Cleanup states (Categories?)
    2. Add links, cleanup old research outlines, update links to "this section of the outline" (Research outlines)
    3. Involve genealogical societies in cleanup?
    4. Each portal has a things you can do box. This needs to be updated! Do we need to change the placement of the box on the portal page? Move it towards the top?
    5. Have state, country, county coordinators. Could we advertize this need on a portal page? Coordinators should have genealogical experience? Have a way to give feedback on coordinators/moderators so those that are not effective can be evaluated and changed as needed.
  2. Volunteers for moderators

Lisa McBride: Tennessee
Darris: Wales
David Samuelsen: New York, Oregon, Luxembourg, Germany
