Yugma[edit source]

I've tried Yugma a couple times. I couldn't get it to work. It was very sluggish. However, others in my office have used it successfully. RitcheyMT 18:36, 19 March 2010 (UTC)

Oneeko[edit source]

I tried Oneeko yesterday and it worked great. A project leader was using it to show others some pages he did. I was impressed with Oneeko's speed and its feature set, especially for the price. I regularly use Oracle Meeting Place and Adobe Connect, both of which I like, but my understanding is that they are enterprise applications that most people can't afford.

I have heard good things about Mykogo. janellv 22:10, 11 July 2011 (UTC)

Setting up Projects
[edit source]

In an effort to capture information that Jimmy Parker trained us on a couple months ago, I created the Help:Creating a New WikiProject page, not realizing that this page already existed. So because that page is more of a getting started page, and this is more about managing the project, I was thinking that maybe there is a use for both and tied all of the Help for WikiProject pages to geter using the tabs as you may see on the main page. This is somewhat of a test - to see what people think about this series of pages and using the tabs. I understand that there is still a lot of duplication in this series of pages that have to be addressed, but I am interested in your thoughts on the formatting. janellv

Just a followup on this - there are now a total of 4 pages to help with setting up and running new WikiProjects - About, Create, Promote, and this one. If anyone is interested in reviewing to take duplication out of this page, that would be great. Otherwise I'll get to it, eventually... :) -- janellv (talk| contribs) 14:35, 30 August 2011 (UTC)
Two pages that need merging into the WikiProject documentation include Barn Raising on FamilySearch Wiki and Category:Barn Raising --Fran 17:08, 2 September 2011 (UTC)
