tip of the day posted on Yammer. Charles said when you have a page that is messed up, you take a small part of it and put it on a sandbox, work on it to find if the problem exists on that portion, then move on to the next until you find the problem spot or spots and fix them. If anyone has ideas for a tip of the day, let Charles know so he can post your ideas as well.

2: What has been seen being touched/worked on.

3: Any potential attacks?

There have been some changes happening on the Family History Center pages where someone is changing the information and putting the wrong information on those pages. Example: One for Medford Oregon had its information replaced with information for another Family History Center's information.
