I added your question about creating new user boxes to the Help page's discussion page. You could respond to the suggestion there, or add additional items for discussion. --Fran 18:35, 18 February 2011 (UTC)
Daudwp, the author of page " 250-348 " needs some help understanding how to create unambiguous page titles. I'm assuming this is part of that British Ref project. Could you coach her/him? Ritcheymt 10:53, 11 April 2008 (MDT)
To all FamilySearch Wiki Contributors: An apology is in order...
By way of introduction, my name is Ben Bennett and I’ve recently joined the FamilySearch team as the product manager for the Wiki and Forums. Put simply, my job is to ensure that your experience, as contributors and users of the Wiki and Forums is excellent. To this end, an apology is in order.
As you know, we recently implemented a new user ID/sign in process for the FamilySearch Wiki. As we implemented this new system, I personally heard from many of you. You shared with me problems that were occurring for you as you tried to sign in, edit or do other things that resulted in lost work, lost time and frustration for you, our key contributors and users. Please accept my sincere apology for the poor performance and poor experience associated with the Wiki during the past few weeks. Please also accept my commitment that the FamilySearch team will learn from this experience and do all that we can to prevent situations like this in the future. To this end, I wanted to share with you ...CONTINUE
We wanted to send out a quick letter of appreciation for contributing in one of the FamilySearch Historical Records articles. The information you provide is invaluable to those users who are searching out further information about collections in FamilySearch; it helps them make a deeper connection with their research, especially when it has to do with their own ancestry. It’s your contributions that are keeping the project rolling forward. We want you to feel a part of our community here.
We are excited you have decided to share your talents, time and resources towards forwarding the goals of FamilySearch.org and those who use it (including you!). If you need a few tips in getting started, we’ve set up a page for you: https://wiki.familysearch.org/en/FamilySearch_Wiki:WikiProject_FamilySearch_Records. In this page you will find information about the FamilySearch Records project, getting started in wiki editing, tasks for which you can sign up to volunteer, etc.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us. We’d love to hear from you and help you out in any way we can.
