We need your opinion[edit source]

In order to help the community arrive at consensus on some issues impacting most of the pages on FamilySearch Wiki, I'd like to invite you to add your opinions to the following discussions:

Thanks! Ritcheymt 12:13, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

What's your best work? And your favorites from others?[edit source]

Hey there Fran! I'm searching for the wiki's best content to highlight it during a presentation I'm doing soon. Will you link me to a couple articles you've contributed to that you are most pleased with? Also, could you link me to your favorite article(s) written by others? Thanks!

Location (namespace) for policies[edit source]

I ask you the question as you seem to have been involved in both. On November 24, 2008 you seemed to be involved in a sprint task to move policy pages to the policy namespace, but then on June 15, 2009 you created the article FamilySearch Wiki:Purpose, Policies, and Procedures quoting moving policies content to the familysearch wiki namespace. Do you know, has it been decided to do away with the Policy namespace? --Steve 16:25, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Yes, we will be moving the policy and guideline pages to the FamilySearch Wiki namespace. I've only started the process and have a long way to go. As far as doing away with the Policy namespace, I believe the namespace will be removed, but I'm not positive right now. Franjensen 17:52, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

Please vote on new name for Reviewer role[edit source]

The wiki community is voting on a proposed renaming of the Reviewer role so that we can give the role to anyone we trust to upload their own images without review. If you care about the name of this role, please discuss the issue and cast your vote at FamilySearch Wiki talk:Reviewer. Ritcheymt 16:47, 2 November 2009 (UTC)

Please vote on search result title link color
[edit source]

Some users have reported that the red color of the article title links in search results are confusing because in a Mediawiki site, a red link means a link to a page that has no content. There is a poll on the forums as to whether to make the links blue instead, which would also conform to what Google and Bing do. Please read the thread/explanation and vote.

External Links[edit source]

Truly insane. The links behave different ways. Has to figure out what or why the link is behaving. Some simply click through just to establish link, effectvely removed from the list. Others have bad categories that did not connect right. Some have wrong or mis-spelled namespaces. Last I looked, it is down to 433.  Quite a number has to do with Utah's pages. dsammy 17:52, 3 March 2010 (UTC)

Need to Delete Old Portal[edit source]

Hi, Fran! I finally finished transferring all the content from my old Panama portal to the new one, but I'm not sure how to get rid of the old one. Thanks for your help.

Add the delete template to the page and those who are helping with the deletes will take care of it. See the Maintenance Templates page for details about using the template. Thanks for your help with the Panama content! --Fran 17:27, 1 June 2010 (UTC)

You are added as Utah moderator[edit source]

Hi, Fran! Great idea. You have been added to the list, and the moderator box has been added to your page. Thanks for adding Utah to your list. AdkinsWH 20:59, 9 August 2010 (UTC)

Wiki Transition[edit source]

Fran, as we work through the Wiki transition, we are discussing the planning and trying to determine how to work with the community on the items below and how to organize the work. We'd like to lay out what things look like in the community and how "big" each responsibility is. Could you help us fill out the following table with additional information so that we know what we are looking at?

  • Hours/wk is how much time is needed to do the task the way it should be done
  • Comm% is what % of the work is currently done by the community
  • Staff% is what % of the work is currently done by staff or missionary support
  • Notes is just for additional information

Amt of Work


Already done by Support
Stub Sorting

Already done by Support
Image Uploads
1-2 hours/wk
Already done by Support
Adopt-a-page Setup

Will be trained by Wilma on 11/15


Deletion Requests

Cleanup Maintenance


Other Maintenance

What am I missing above?  Am I looking at this right? What are other ways you find out how "big" each of these projects/maintenance responsibilities are?  VasquezJL 22:47, 11 November 2010 (UTC)

I have moved this discussion item to the FamilySearch Wiki:Wiki Support/Foundation/Additional Notes discussion page for the Tier 2 Support. --Fran 20:50, 16 November 2010 (UTC)

Where should wikiproject contributors communicate?[edit source]

People who work on writing projects on the wiki are asking for an online venue they can use to talk about...

  • how to organize projects,
  • how and where to recruit contributors
  • how to motivate project members
  • how to track progress on projects
  • Manual of Style issues that we need to settle to avoid rework
  • ...and other stuff.

Could you go to the wiki feedback forum and give your opinion as to what tool(s) we should choose to communicate? The thread where we will discuss this is Which tools for wikiproject contributors to communicate? Ritcheymt 16:24, 16 October 2009 (UTC)
