Use this page to discuss things with me about some of the topics below that I have an interest in seeing happen with the FamilySearch Research Wiki.

Soliciting your opinion

Hey James, will you weigh in on "Local Histories" or "Histories" heading on county pages? I want to reach consensus on this quickly in order to get a big missionary team engaged in FamilySearch Wiki:WikiProject Linking to Books in the BYU Family History Archives. Thanks in advance! Ritcheymt 13:46, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

Search Engine Optimization and the FamilySearch Research Wiki

Making sure that one can find content in the FamilySearch Wiki and having updates appear in search engines within a day or two after they are either first put on the Wiki or the page update has been made.  There are some problems at the present, as I've heard a report that Google only spiders the site about once every 15 days at present.  Given the frequency the site is updated, it should be happening at least every other day.  What can be done to make that happen?

Messages from others

Hey James, thanks for the message on my User Talk page about the Maryland Maps search results from Google! You're awesome! Ritcheymt 15:14, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

James, thanks for the message about the ISBN glitch! Ritcheymt 21:31, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

Thank you James! I had actually already used that information on the Washington County page. Those cemeteries on that page are from various transcriptions, most are from findagrave but there are a few surprises in there. I appreciate your interest! Thank you. Michael's right! You're awesome!

Thank you for placing the LDS forms topic on the agenda for today.  It is a small matter, but one of sensitivity.  Having only LDS ordinance-specific forms inadvertently sends an inaccurate message about the focus of the wiki.  There ARE tools that are designed specifically for use by Latter-day Saints, but (as I understand it anyway) this tool is meant to be very universal.

Thanks also for the domain name search idea you mentioned in last week's meeting.  I would never have thought of that, but am better prepared for an event this weekend as a result. Eirebrain 19:27, 9 June 2009 (UTC)
