Training Spotlight


  • Wanted pages

1. Answer questions posted on talk pages. If you do not know the answer, put a Helpme template.

After a question is answered, put helpme-helped template. These go to Sandra. If it is Historical Records there is a different template for them.

2. Format the talk page giviing a title to the question.
3. If there is no signature, use — Preceding unsigned comment added by user name (talk | contribs) 17:57, 12 February 2014 (UTC) and go to the history to find the username and the date.
4. If you answer a question, indent below the question. Then answer the question.
5. If you patrol a talk page that is older, you need to fix the whole page if it has not been done in the past. See Clean up talk pages.
