Alabama, County Probate Records wiki

This is not an edit, it's in response to the request for feedback when I rated the above page.

I go to the wikis to find out whether the collection is complete, or whether there are still county records being added (I'm referring to the collections by county that you can browse, not the collections that have been indexed).  It seems like the wikis used to provide this information - "still in progress" if nothing more specific than that.  If I know records are still being added, I'll make a point of checking back.  But if I don't know, I may assume that's all there is and rule it out for future searches. 

I know I can sort the "All Collections" page by most recent but, first, I usually keep this page in alpha order to make it easier to find the collection I want; and, second, unless I make a note when I last checked a collection, any new date it shows when I sort it that way probably won't mean much.

Thanks for the incredible work you're doing here.
