Updates and follow up[edit | edit source]

  • Any idea when "Save page" will be fixed? Some in forums have expressed frustration and "can no longer support" the project. They represent others who simply quit, saying nothing. Getting and keeping new recruits for a project is difficult with an unreliable function.AdkinsWH 16:48, 1 November 2011 (UTC)

Business/Announcements[edit | edit source]

Style Guide Discussions[edit | edit source]

  • Shortened URL’s – On the Success Stories page, I came across some shortened URL’s, which surprised me. They were done long ago. Do we, or should we, have a policy on using these in our Wiki? My only concern is that, until the link has been clicked, you have no idea where it is going. --Judy 18:25, 1 November 2011 (UTC)
