Needed training: 

Training/new missionaries & Volunteers
  • Maintenance Report - Sandra

African American history: For now, S. Carolina is only one available. You do need to know where the person lived. Not many records pre-1870 to find African Americans. This is a step back a bit further in time. It lists many things such as labor contacts, slave owners, etc. Click on 'learn more'...before this it could only be found in American Archives.

Questions from HTML 5 Class (Mondays at 12PM Mountain):

Patrolling and Amdocs Review

  • Did you see anything while patrolling this past week that would be interesting to discuss with the team?
  1. Patron response to Welcoming and is there a way to delete their User and User Talk page
  2. See what is being touched.
  3. Catch potenial attacks

ask Steve Cotrel (community counsel and guru) ... someone thru amdocs ran across anomolies page.  We really don't know what to do with them - he might know. That patron would also want to help with simple things.

Someone was upset that someone wrote on her talk page. LaVera tried to help out, but the patrol left the Wiki.  The question was could you take talk page away...Robin, said no.  Possible contact Wiki Support and ask that question.  We don't want to affect their family search tree account. Persons user names work even if they never signed on to the Wiki.  Can we delete user name and talk page.  Lavera erased page.  Sandra said she can delete page... even if it is a talk page. Put the delete template.  Sandra said this does not affect the usability of FS

   Sandra mentioned about someone else that thought having a page on the Wiki might compromise their private information.
