User Person-to-Person testing
The purpose: to discover some of the "kinks" before we actually start the test. AdkinsWH 20:06, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

- What caught your eye first? Why?
- What would you click first? Why?
- Did the tabs/links reflect what you were expecting to find?
- What looks useful if it were your state page?
- What can you do with the map?
- The solid bars: what do they mean to you?
- Which communicates best – Getting Started? Quick Start?
- What words would mean more to you? __________________________________________
- Which color is best? Why?
- The Tabs: Can you think of a tab that we should add or rename?
- What do we mean by “Wiki pages?”
The "DC Button" template for online records was intentionally created as a right-justified badge. By changing it you changed the position of about 3,500 of other badges derived from it. So I had to revert it back. I hope you don't mind that I inserted the Template:ARDCleft into your sandbox to show you a more appropriate way to get the badge to appear on the left side of the page. All 50 states have long had both a right and a left version of the same badge, so there is no need to go modifying a base-template that has been used by others before you.
In the future, if you need to modify someone else's template, I recommend you copy it into a new template first, and then modify the new template. That way all the old places that template was used will not be changed by your modifications.
Thank you for contributing to the Wiki, we need all the help we can get.

You have been a busy girl since yesterday. Looks like you have finished -- or nearly so -- adding the word "birth". It seems like such a small thing, but it will matter to users. Thank you, thank you, thank you! AdkinsWH 00:42, 23 May 2013 (UTC)
Jefferson County, Idaho LDS Church Stakes and Wards
Hi Sister Heaston, Thank you for your contributions on the Jefferson County, Idaho LDS Church Stakes and Wards. The page is well developed, but it needs to be moved from the "Talk" page to a regular page. Thank you, Parrisl 05:27, 27 April 2013 (UTC)
Hi, Sister Heaston, Thanks for putting up the pictures in the counties. There is one slight problem that need to be fixed however. (I fixed Salt Lake County). The pictures need to be the very first thing on the page. You have been putting them after "[[Utah|" which breaks the link in the breadcrumb trail. The need to go before the "[[". Thanks, AdkinsWH 02:17, 7 April 2013 (UTC)
Dear Claudia, I am working in the US/CAN Reference Consultants' area and am building the Wiki for the CW Military pages. I've noticed that you go in and contribute to my pages under New York CW by putting in the categories. That is a great help and we thank you but may I ask you to add a little something to the category? Could you please put Category:New York - Military instead of just Category:New York ?
Then we don't have to go back and change it. That would be great! Thank you!!! If you have any further input to me personally just write me at firstname.lastname@example.org

To all FamilySearch Wiki Contributors: An apology is in order...
By way of introduction, my name is Ben Bennett and I’ve recently joined the FamilySearch team as the product manager for the Wiki and Forums. Put simply, my job is to ensure that your experience, as contributors and users of the Wiki and Forums is excellent. To this end, an apology is in order.
As you know, we recently implemented a new user ID/sign in process for the FamilySearch Wiki. As we implemented this new system, I personally heard from many of you. You shared with me problems that were occurring for you as you tried to sign in, edit or do other things that resulted in lost work, lost time and frustration for you, our key contributors and users. Please accept my sincere apology for the poor performance and poor experience associated with the Wiki during the past few weeks. Please also accept my commitment that the FamilySearch team will learn from this experience and do all that we can to prevent situations like this in the future. To this end, I wanted to share with you ...CONTINUE
We need your help;
Hi Claudia, I am on the Wiki Maintanence Team and working on the pages for deletion. I am working on the page England Merchant Marine. If you could give a reason for deletion on the talk page and move links that are still left on this page. We need a reason to delete, and need to change these links or they will all be broken when the page is deleted. Could you look at these and see where they need to go? Thanks so much for all this help. SandralpondSandralpond 09:49, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
Claudia: You have added the picture of the Pioneer Mountains to the Clearwater County, Idaho page and yet this mountain does not span this country. Could you please offer an explanation for this? Thanks Elder Knox
Hi Claudia, would you explain to me please what is the meaning of "fag" you have put in the summary of some contributions. Just curious. Thank you Familyjournals 18:57, 5 May 2014 (UTC)
