The Grievance Committee has some suggestions regarding Moderators involvement in the process. We also need someone from FamilySeach to act as a secretary to the Committee to set up meetings etc. and take notes. James L. Tanner 18:58, 13 September 2011 (UTC)

Training Requests

  • Which training page should we send new wiki contributors to?  The one under  Learn More  on the right side of the page, or the one under Contributor Help ?  The link for the 'view entire course here' under getting started with Wiki lessons on the Edit and Contribute page under Contributor help does not link anywhere.
