Hi Norfolk and Bedfordshire contributor. My name is [[User:Murphynw|Nathan Murphy]]. I work for FamilySearch. My email is murphynw@familysearch.org. I'm reaching out to you because you have made contributions to the pages in these counties. I am part of the [[FamilySearch Wiki:WikiProject English parishes|English Parishes project]] on FamilySearch Wiki. We have plans in the works to add content to parish pages in these counties in 2014. Our goal is to standardise and add useful content to parish pages throughout England. The major addition we propose this year is to add links to websites that contain online transcripts and images of parish registers. Here is an example of the [[FamilySearch Wiki:WikiProject English parishes#Parish_Register_Coverage_Table|table of links]] we have envisioned. We invite you to participate and join the England Parishes project. You can join by adding your signature to the [[FamilySearch Wiki:WikiProject English parishes#Contributors|Contributors]] list by making four tildes <nowiki>~~~~</nowiki>.

Just another thank you! [[User:AdkinsWH|AdkinsWH]] 16:44, 26 June 2013 (UTC) Hi, "Parris1"! I like your picture and that you have so much experience. I had forgotten about the comments "Add everything vs. highlight best sources" put on the Improving the Wiki page back in 2011. Thank you for bringing the question up again.

The other issue was the next button, that doesn't have a link. Not sure there's any point to that.
  
One of my "soap boxes" has been that people put in everything -- perhaps alphabetically or other way -- and don't help the user see the best options. I have no idea how to tell you to proceed. If the concept has merit, perhaps it could be better written and put on a guidelines or help page somewhere.

Thanks

Am in process of gathering what is in the Wiki and on the Internet about getting copies of records in a variety of ways: from ordering photocopies, to books or microfilm, hiring record searchers, going there yourself, or hiring a genealogist. The question helps me think of what is best for the user, and to realize I need to examine each item I come across to have any hope of evaluating and highlighting best sources. Painstaking, but if it will be worth it to the user, it's worth it.

Thank you very much, Parris1. I like the way you think and very much appreciate your perspective. Perhaps you could look at the [[User:AdkinsWH/Sandbox Closer to home access/services|in-process page]] and give ideas. If interested, I can set up a meeting to actually talk about it -- ideas are easier to experess that way. [[User:AdkinsWH|AdkinsWH]] 15:31, 9 June 2013 (UTC)

Hi, "Parris1". Thank you for your comment about the tip under [[FamilySearch Wiki:WikiProject Utah Experimental County#Libraries|Libraries]] on the Experimental County page. It is any better?

It looks like the Doddington, Shropshire page which was where it was directed was deleted by [[User:Sandralpond|Sandrapond]] It looks like it should redirect to [[Dodington]] but the Dodington page probably should be renamed to Dodington, Shropshire to be consistent with other pages that include the shire name.

The battle of Lyndanisse was a great victory by the Danes, see below:<br>The story goes that a large Danish army led by Valdemar II captured an important trade port. Then the Danish crusaders began to build a castle to control the area (Tallinn means Danish fortress.) While the castle is being built the Estonians gather an army. On 15 June 1219 the Estonians attacked from 5 directions in what is known as the Battle of Lyndanisse. Initially the battle did not go well until one of the Danish allies led a counter attack which allowed the Danish crusaders to regroup and attack again. This time the Danish crusaders defeated the Estonian army. Tallinn and a large part of Estonia was then under the control of Denmark. According to legend, Archbishop Sunesen said a prayer on a hilltop during the battle. When he raised his arms to the sky, the Danes advanced in battle. When he lowered his arms the Danes pulled back. Helpers came forward and helped the old archbishop to keep his arms raised. When the battle was at its worst, God sent help to the Danes. As a sign of Gods help a red flag with a white cross appeared in the sky, which encouraged the Danish soldiers to such a great victory. The Danish King Valdemar II announced that the cross on a flag gave the Danes their victory. He declared the symbol to become the Danish flag, now known as the Dannebrog. That flag is the oldest, unchanged, national flag in the world.<br>http://da.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lyndanisse
 
 
 
As far as the image replacement, please use the Denmark talk page before making big changes.

Help:Guiding Principles and Policies - getting the tabs on all pages[edit source]

Is there an easy way to get the tabs that are on the top of this page to appear in other pages? I don't see the point of having tabs if they disappear once you click on them. The Help:Wiki_University_Tutorial is a little bit better, but not much (shifting tabs).

The other issue was the next button, that doesn't have a link. Not sure there's any point to that.
