I am delighted you want to serve!
I see as well you have been on the Forums that's wonderful.
I do think you should do other things first on the FamilySearch Research Wiki. You may want to go to "Wiki Wikiproject Utah" and help with that, because when you are on the Welcoming Committee you will have to guide contributors.But I would spend a lot of time in"Tour" first.
You will want to create your own talk page so anyone could talk to you. You will want to learn in edit mode how to sign your name and you will always want to put you comments at the top of the page in a talk page unless they ask you to do differently. I do not want to overwhelm you and I am grateful for your enthusiasm and I think you may want to do something else before you are on the welcoming Committee.
Thanks so much for your eagerness to help that is awesome,

I was wrong about the top of the page being where you want to start use the + sign on the right side bar. Fran A Jensen showed me comments go on the bottom of a wiki, even though they go on the bottom many people do it incorrectly including me. I will repent. However some will ask to have you use the top of the page then its what you should do.

Much thanks to you, for spending time in the Wiki with our authors and editors and all contributions you make that have helped the Wiki to grow. The Research Wiki is in its first years but it is growing and becoming a wonderful tool that helps people find answers in one space and costs only in effort to search on their part.
We want to improve the process for Welcoming new authors and editors in the Wiki. I want to make each member of the committee aware of some improvements coming in June:
• We will have another Welcome Message Template designed to be more individualized. The others will be there too but we hope that you will use this new welcome message. Steve Cottrell will be helping us with the Template, a special thanks to him.
• Please read more carefully what the contributor or editor have put on the page. The current steps listed for reviewing the contributions are good to follow.
• Avoid adding the welcome message before following the steps outlined.
.• The question Templates will stay the same.
We thank you again for all you do.
The Welcoming Committee is here to support you and offer you a warm welcome to a Community that loves Family History. We thank you for your contributions! Please continue editing and consider joining in Projects Seeking Contributors or a live Community Meeting where you may meet other experienced users and contributors.
This message is posted on your Talk Page which is associated with your personal User Page. Try creating a User Page about yourself by clicking on your name under "Personal Tools" at the bottom of the navigation bar. It's a great place to practice new skills and lets others know something about you and your genealogical interests. We hope you like this place and decide to join in.
