Improve the Wiki

  • Image uploads - check names and cc licensing
  • Make sure that preferences show Hidden Categories
  • Remember a colon in front of a link to a category page when you want to just link to that page, not add a category
  • Look at Talk page for Bridge Poor Law Union, Kent - for Janell's response. As we look at Help needed pages, especially for England.
  • Discussion of how to improve Talk pages when there are multiple comments. Use Headings, Indentation, and signatures to differentiate between comments. See Talk:England, Kent Workhouse
  • Factual Accuracy template on articles - Beginning Irish Research - check what links here, see if there is someone who has worked on the page who would be willing to work on it. Contact Rick to see if we have a volunteer who is interested in this area. Contact the person in the library who was contacted about the volunteer and ask if they could work on this page.
