Follow-up and Priority items for this meeting:
Improve the Wiki
Current Wiki Projects we are focusing on
*Red Link Pages: Suggestion to help on these pages.
- 1. History and background are necessary on many of these page just make it short or use a link to cover most of it.
- 2. A section about the genealogical records relating to the main subject.
- 3. Links to other pages in the Wiki may help on 2 and are done in many ways including Crumb trails, templates for the State, and subheading that cover this.
- 4. Please put on a category and there are ones on Migration trails, railroads and rivers that are great.
- 5. A very good example to see many of the possibilities is: https://familysearch.org/learn/wiki/en/Mormon_Trail
*Suggestions for next projects:
- 1. Work on Another layer of red links: Counties, or Other Countries.
- 2. Create Wanted Files
- 3. Work on updating Outdated_articles
- Please, Look at the FamilySearch Wiki:Missionary Training Lessons. Make
Improvements, give suggestions and list future items that need discussion on the future agenda pages. Thanks so much.
Suggestions for Other Focus Projects
- Black (non) links. Write pages for those found on state pages
- Giuseppe: Historical Records sent list of missionaries. Now found on our tool box page. (Tool Box page is moved via a redirect). Jane Colemares sent a list of missionaries/people working on England project and Civil War project. That spreadsheet is available on Yammer. Please use Yammer. Salesforce has a new director and it will be some time before that is what we will use.
- Mission and Technical Lead - Charles - image map no longer working to make clickable maps. No upgrade forthcoming until engineers know other programs won't interfere with our wiki
- Training and Maintenance - Sandra Sandra Kennedy is doing well.
- Content Missionary Lead and Community update- Wilma/Bo -- AncestryInstitution is working again. It's been an on and off issue now for a few weeks.
- Welcoming Committee - LaVera/Marilyn
- Moderator Report - Myra
Patrolling and Sales Force Review
1: Did you see anything while patrolling this past week that would be interesting to discuss with the team?
2: What has been seen being touched/worked on.
3: Any potential attacks?
1: What did you learn this week that you want to share?
2: What do you need help with?
- (Myra) duplicate names for the same item - how best to deal with these? Suggestion, lists under both names with a redirect from one to the other. That way both come up on searches
- (Linda) Learning Center wiki articles need rewriting. These are accessed through salesforce, but can be rewritten from the public URLs
- (Linda) Someone to take meeting notes while her hand is recovering from injury.
3: Needed training?
- (Blake, et al) Refresher course to be offered to Historical Records, can any of us attend? Yes - and perhaps have a refresher course in this meeting.
4: Do you have questions or suggestions regarding what others are working on?
- (In Skype) Charles would like to use Zulu time. Also proposes only to skim on the patrolling (several edits per user)
