Emphasis on helping people use the wiki[edit source]

 I am updating a series of Facebook lessons for beginners. At present I am developing a lesson on use of the wiki for research. I have left two comments on talk pages of articles that are woefully out-of-date. And most of the pages for new to the wiki are geared to recruiting people to contribute to the wiki, not helping them use it. I found some comments from Janell in 2011-2012 stating the same and suggesting that there should be more of an emphasis on helping people use it. I make the same plea now. We have been working with hundreds of 18-22 yr old LDS Missionaries, and they are lost with the orientation given here Ken Knight 04:41, 16 February 2015 (UTC)

Ken, Your feedback has been received and I also captured your other comments from the “Tour” page and the “Wiki Basics” page. I will forward them to someone who can make a decision and will summarize your comments for the feedback page so that a response can be posted there. By the way, you mentioned a series of Facebook lessons for beginners. Could you eventually provide the link to those wiki lessons you are creating (for future reference)? Thank you for your feedback.
