Second half of meeting: Improve the Wiki

Item 1: Infoboxes

Last week, we discussed adding infoboxes to United States county pages. Did anyone have a chance to work on this? Murphynw 04:58, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

Item 2: Offers to assist in other's projects

What if we start making 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)
