Discussion Items - share ideas on what could make the wiki better for patrons and contributors

Item 1: Infoboxes
Last week, we discussed adding infoboxes to United States county pages. This space can give us a chance to report on our progress.
KY, LA, FL, NC, SC, CT, SD are finished. Thanks for your help Jane! Murphynw 20:18, 22 February 2011 (UTC)
Item 2: Offers to assist in other's projects
What if we start making weekly offers to contribute our skills to other state projects? We each have skill sets that we have developed, such as finding courthouse pics, library addresses, adding infoboxes, historical population tables, breadcrumb trails, etc. Why not collaborate by offering to help out in each other's projects? I'll make the first offer. Murphynw 04:58, 16 February 2011 (UTC)
User Offer Requests
User:Murphynw Add courthouse pics from private collection. Which states would like me to add courthouse pics? (Limit of three states) LA, ID 
User:Evancol Add infoboxes (will do same three states)


Item 3: Two new support project sign-up pages
Ongoing Support Responsibilities
Support Projects




For next week:
Moderators and adopters: Learn from one another. What are you doing? What are the obstacles you are facing? What issues need to be worked out?
