Task Description

Copy preset birth paragraphs and links under the "Birth" heading for each of Utah's 29 counties. Then adapt the paragraphs and links to the county.

It is expected that this task will take 15 - 30 minutes per county.

FYI: Using templates allows wording to be consistent from county to county. Changes can be made in one place and appear wherever those templates were posted.


Step 1. Prep

A. Sign in to the Wiki, open two pages

Having two pages open — one for this task page, the other for the county page — makes it easy to toggle between them.

  1. Right-click on Project page (colored section on the right)
  2. Select either "Open in new window" or "Open in new tab."
  3. Go to the county page for one and stay on this task page for the other.

To toggle between them, use Alt+Tab or mouse.

B. Sign up for a county

1. Go to the Sign up Chart and follow directions to sign up for a county.

2. Type the name of that county (such as Garfield) in the edit Summary box and Save Page.

3. Clicking on the county takes you to the Birth heading.

Step 2. Put the planned info on the county page

A. Copy the codes

1. Toggle (Alt+Tab or mouse) back to this task page

2. Copy (highlight then Ctrl+C) the mix of cryptic codes and words below. (NOT in Edit mode):

====== Before [date county formed] ======
:''{{PAGENAME}} was formed in [date formed].''
====== [date formed]-[year before birth records began] ======

B. Paste to the county page

Toggle to the county page. In edit mode (WikiText)

  • Place the cursor under the Birth heading
  • Paste (Ctrl+V) the cryptic stuff.
  • In the edit Summary, write "Copied planned birth info".
  • Save page

Step 3. Adapt the planned info to the county

A. Adapt county name/dates to this county

Include/adapt/remove (as appropriate) what others had put in the Birth heading previously.

  • Does their info duplicate what we have?
    • Yes: remove theirs
    • No: Leave it alone, toggle back to this task page and write a comment in the "remarks" column for the county. (This allows their data to reviewed later without holding up the task)

Type in the edit Summary, "Adapted birth links to current county" and Save page

Step 4. Update the Sign Up chart

1. Next to the county in the sign up chart, put 4 tildes ~~~~ in the "Date completed" column.
2. Make any remarks (such as "Has content to be reviewed", or "The template wording should be changed to" ...and write your suggestion)
3. In the edit Summary write "completed ___ county" and 4. Save page

Step 5. Repeat Steps 1-4 for the next county

Sign up Chart

Volunteers are needed to check all 29 counties, adding items as appropriate. Please place four tildes (~~~~) in the "Volunteer" column next to the counties you choose for this task. This will automatically show your username and the date you signed up.

Please make a note in Remarks if you have any problems. This allows us to improve the task.
