Comments on new pages
Kurt, We welcome new contributors and see that you like to help clean up the Wiki, which we also welcome. I have added comments to several of your pages, along with templates. I hope you will understand the reasoning behind the comments, etc. after you read the explanation of what is and isn't acceptable in the Wiki. Because the Wiki is fully open to the public, not just LDS people, certain material is not acceptable. Also, we cannot use material that promotes a paid site, such as World Vital Records, even thought it is a great site and the video they've produced is very well done. We also can't use the site as a place to talk about particular families. This site is meant to be a place where people can learn about how to do research. I hope I haven't offended you in any way. Please let me know your thoughts on these subjects.Lynda 17:19, 8 November 2011 (UTC)
