I love to help new users or researchers when I can. Just leave a message and if I can't find the answer I will direct you to someone who can! Also, I'm moderator for Wyoming. If you would like to help, I'd love to work with you.

Reviewer role?[edit source]
Kara, thanks for the Welcome.
Although I have been editing the Orange County, California, page for a year, yours is the first communication from the powers that be. :-)
I have been tasked to create a new page for the Orange (Calif) Large Multi-Stake FHC. The rather vague instructions were to use Riverton's page as a template. I have created a prototype page, not ready for publication, and I was wondering if there's an appropriate method of having it checked by a reviewer?
I've been trying to digest the style and other articles on how things are to be done, but I'm still a newbie. I don't have audio available, so tutorial videos are not useful. Do you have suggestions about forums, discussions or other sources I may join or monitor to continue to learn? Jimmyk418 18:21, 29 July 2010 (UTC)

Quick Note of Appreciation[edit source]
We wanted to send out a quick letter of appreciation for all your hard work and dedication in getting the FamilySearch Records project off the ground. The information you provide is invaluable to those users who are searching out further information about collections in FamilySearch; it helps them make a deeper connection with their research, especially when it has to do with their own ancestry. It’s your contributions that are keeping the project rolling forward. Thank you.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us. We’d love to hear from you and help you out in any way we can.
The FamilySearch Records Team

Moderator/Adopter issues coming to a vote[edit source]
As you probably already know, FamilySearch launched an Adopt-a-Page program at the Federation of Genealogical Societies conference over the summer. Many groups are signing up to adopt a page. We need your help in order to resolve some important questions about the relative roles that Moderators and Adopters ought to play and how they can work together. These questions and discussions are on the new FamilySearch Wiki Contributors' Corner forum. We are going to hold a vote on these issues by year's end, and the resolutions will change the roles Moderators and Adopters play, so please visit the forum and add your thoughts. Thanks!
