Jimmy suggested that I leave you a note about your work on the Montgomery County, Kentucky page. I see that you have successfully created a county navbox. At the moment you've added the code for the navbox directly to the page, which is OK, but if you wanted to use the navbox on many pages, the way to do this is to create the navbox in the "Template" namespace. If you are new to the wiki this will be new to you, but I'm willing to guide you through the process. --Steve 21:14, 1 October 2010 (UTC)
Blanking out pages
Hi, I'm Dorothy Horan. I work with the pages that describe digital collections published in fsbeta.I've notified that you have blanked out redirects from some articles in the wiki, including ones that we created. When that happens, the wiki users are led to a blank page which might lead them to believe that there isn't another article available to give them that data.
What we need to do with those pages is to mark them for deletion. The redirects are supposed to be temporary until someone who deletes pages can delete the non-essential pages.
Thanks for helping out! Let me know if you have any questions. -- Horandm 30 November 2010.
Categories for US Military categories
Hi Charles, I have today amended some categories relating to US military categories (for example Category:Illinois - Military). I noticed that many of these categories had themselves as the category, resulting in a category loop. The change I've made is to have them added to two category, 1) relating to the state and 2) relating to US State Military Records. I've sorted the state category with the word Military and the US State Military Records with the name of the state. I hope you see the logic behind this change. --Steve 12:55, 7 December 2010 (UTC)
