Making it clear on creating an account[edit source]

Suggest a change to the section:

"How to add your comments to a Talk page.

   Make sure you have registered and signed-in to the Wiki so you can have rights to edit the Talk page. You can register by clicking here.
   Click the Talk tab at the top of the page to which you want to add your comments.
   Click the Wikitexttab at the top of the page.
   In the editing box give a title to your talking point enclosed by three = signs. For example: === The accuracy of this article may need to be checked === "

THE PHASE IN THE FIRST PART "Make sure you have registered and signed-in..." is confusing to some. It sounds like there is a TWO STEP process...not so for person with an account already in FamilySearch. They need only sign in. CONFUSING!

Changing the name of Discussion pages[edit source]

Discussion pages have been confusing for a really long time. I would like to propose that we change the word "Discussion" at the top of the screen and in the Views menu on the right to "Talk" so that they are simply called Talk pages. Does anyone have concerns with that?

No concerns from me. --Steve (talk| contribs) 14:19, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

Question[edit source]

In the US., District of Columbia - Deaths for the Entry/Certificate number do we use the Burial Permit number or only the number of record and use Blank for the Burial Permit Number? GF

Hi GF, your question would probably be seen by people who could best answer your question if posted to one of the FamilySearch Forums about Indexing. This talk page is for discussing the article Help:Discussion Pages. --Steve 07:24, 27 September 2010 (UTC)
