Several community members asked in our last meeting about the status of Portal pages for the countries that have their county pages all in portals. I've also seen some city pages were created as a portal page. Are you converting the county and city pages as well? I would like to have a project page in the Wiki for tracking this conversion. Do you have a project page already? If there was a project page, then anyone with questions about the current status can get the answers to their question on that page.&nbsp; Thanks for all your work so far. -- [[User:JensenFA|Fran]] 22:52, 7 December 2009 (UTC)

Letter from Wiki Product Manager

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

Welcome!

 Welcome...  

Hello, Eduardo H Seoane, and welcome to FamilySearch Wiki! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like this place and decide to stay. Here are some pages that you might find helpful:

Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your username and the date. If you need help, ask me on my talk page, or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and ask your question there.

It was decided at the community on November 17, that regular attendees at the meeting would be given an opportunity to review the welcome message and test out the {{helpme}} template.

Again, welcome!

Status of Portal page conversions

Several community members asked in our last meeting about the status of Portal pages for the countries that have their county pages all in portals. I've also seen some city pages were created as a portal page. Are you converting the county and city pages as well? I would like to have a project page in the Wiki for tracking this conversion. Do you have a project page already? If there was a project page, then anyone with questions about the current status can get the answers to their question on that page.  Thanks for all your work so far. -- Fran 22:52, 7 December 2009 (UTC)
