This page needs to be moved to the FamilySearch Wiki namespace. --[[User:JensenFA|Fran]] 16:28, 15 March 2010 (UTC) Additional information about the need to move this page: The authoring Welcoming Committee message links to this page through the "Introduction" link in the message itself. The Introduction link goes to the page titled: FamilySearch Wiki:Introduction which has a redirect to this page. Consequently, in order to move this page to the FamilySearch Wiki namespace, the move should be made to the redirect page. I have no idea how to accomplish this task because the page already exists. --[[User:JensenFA|Fran]] 22:28, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

:The article has been moved. When users with admin rights attempt to move a page to an already existing page, they have the option to delete the existing page at the same time, so that the move can be completed. The only thing that can make it more complicated is if the existing page has a talk page. If that is the case then the talk page would need to be manually deleted first. --[[User:Cottrells|Steve]] 00:41, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

Great article

This is very informative, and explains the purpose and vision of this site. Great article. Thanks The Earl 10:27, 17 March 2008 (MDT)

Customers vs. patrons

I find "customer" to be too commercial for the purpose of the wiki and genealogy. I would prefer to see "patron" used in its place. Comments? (Also posted in the forums.)

Move needed

This page needs to be moved to the FamilySearch Wiki namespace. --Fran 16:28, 15 March 2010 (UTC) Additional information about the need to move this page: The authoring Welcoming Committee message links to this page through the "Introduction" link in the message itself.

History lacking

This page discusses the reasons the Wiki was built but does not adequately address the history - when the first page was created, who was involved from the beginning, perhaps some statistics about growth (content and users) and development.

Before those who were in from the start are gone or their memories fade, it would be nice to capture it.MannAE 23:22, 25 March 2010 (UTC)
