New Agenda Items

  • We would like to publish a Wiki newsletter that would go to contributors, etc.  We would love to get your ideas for subjects that could be included.  Would the FHL like to contribute information on any of their projects?  Would any of you like to write a short article that could be included.  Also, do you think once a month is too often, or would every other month be a better schedule?averyld 20:28, 23 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Discuss protect/unprotect (policy;
    specifically to amend the policy to require "that pages be proposed for protection or un-protection. This would prevent situations where one user arbitrarily blocks all other non-moderators from editing without the input of others." as suggested by lotje2, et al  Ken Knight 18:37, 24 July 2012 (UTC)
