Letter from Wiki Product Manager[edit source]

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

Status of Portal page conversions[edit source]

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)

Broken link in article 'Ecuador Archives and Libraries[edit source]

Just a heads up, working with someone from Ecuador tonight and the link for the National Archives (the first of the two) does not work. Either it was inadvertently mistyped or the URL itself has changed. JamesAnderson 03:41, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

James, go ahead and make the changes as needed. Thanks, --Fran 16:06, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
Thanks Fran, Google Toolbar found the problem, there was an extra part added to the link that broke it. Had posted here in case the URL had changed from what was there to something new entirely, but it was the same, only difference was the stray stuff I removed, and now it works right.
