Dear Research Wiki Contributor,
Thank you for your past contributions to the Research Wiki.
The Wiki soon will be upgraded so that it will be easier to edit.
The format may also be changing, which gives you an opportune time
to give input for changes you would like to see made – changes that
would better serve the needs of Wiki users.
Please respond to my email talk page at firstname.lastname@example.org
with your name and phone number so that I may contact you in regards
to changes you would like to see in the Wiki.

Any chance we can discuss the use of "Record Selection Table" in the nav boxes? At a recent wiki community meeting, several contributors expressed concerns about such a librarian-sounding phrase. We discussed "Getting Started" or "Introduction," which works well as a complement to "For Further Reading" that ends the list in the nav box. Lise 18:12, 29 September 2010 (UTC)
