Papua New Guinea-stub

Hi, I see you amended the list of stubs to include one for Papua New Guinea. I have now created the stub and the associated category. --Steve 16:15, 6 October 2010 (UTC)

Adoption sign for FLGenWeb

Hi Rorie, I noticed that you had started but not finished two adoption signs for the FLGenWeb project, {{Adoption FLGenWeb}} and {{Adoption FLGenWeb Project}}. I have corrected to code so that either one will work. As they are now identical (apart from the name), you should probably mark one for deletion.

I have also updated the instructions for creating a new adoption sign to refer to the documentation for the adoption sign template rather than {{UserBox Adopt-A-Wiki Page}} which is an example of how a sign looks, rather than the code to use when creating a new sign. --Steve 12:52, 11 January 2011 (UTC)

Getting Started pages project

Thanks for volunteering to help with the Getting Started pages project! I have been working on the Help:Tour page and was wondering if you could come share your thoughts - what concepts are needed for a "Tour" of the wiki?  Here is a Sandbox page with the general idea. Feel free to add your own edits/thoughts. 

Also, the Edit & Contribute pages just had some changes made, what do you think?

Utah Pages

I just noticed that you added a note on the Utah discussion page about helping with the Utah pages. Sorry I didn't see the note before tonight. We'd love your help. Were you volunteering to be an assistant moderator, or to help with the general content improvement? Right now I'm reviewing all the content that has already been added for Utah, and evaluating the format and styles that exist on all the pages. There are some basic things that need adding, but with the pages the way they are right now, I'm perplexed about where to put the content. Currently I'm gathering my analysis in a Google Doc, but will add the results to the FamilySearch Wiki:WikiProject Utah in the near future. The first thing I need to add on each county page is the template for the invitation to be the moderator. If you have any ideas as to where this little piece of content should go on the county pages, let me know. I welcome your ideas. --Fran 07:06, 18 March 2011 (UTC)

West Virginia

I see major changes on the layout and format of the WV page. Did you do that? If so, please tell me more.

Never mind. It has nothing to do with your edits. The appearance of the page is completely different when viewed in Firefox. I'll give "Feedback" on that. Charlene Pipkin 18:39, 20 May 2011 (UTC)


Hi there. I believe you are approving and posting the county locator maps I uploaded for the counties in Northeast Ohio. It would be great if these could be labeled at "Oh-county.png" to remain consistent with the existing naming convention already on the wiki. I would love to go through all 88 counties and upload pictures, but this is obviously a gigantic task being that I'd have to pull each one off of Wikimedia Commons and upload them one at a time by hand. If there is a way way easier way for someone on the "inside" to do this, I would appreciate it. I am trying to use these locator maps to place infoboxes on each of the county pages for Ohio to neaten things up! Let me know if you can help streamline this or if I can be of any further help. - LeeTHawkins 15:36, 16 August 2011 (UTC)
