  • Collectibles. Like the trade-show goodies or pins that some people collect from each event they attend, I think it would be nice to have some kind of "collectible" to add to my own user page, or to add to someone else's as a "job well done" or "member of the (whatever) project team." Is there a template that could be easily modified to suit whatever the occasion? What would it take to create an icon for NGS 2010, another one for BYU Comptuer Genealogy Conference 2010, another one for the project teams?Lise 20:48, 18 May 2010 (UTC)
    Just in the last few days I have started a page to collect together different FamilySearch Wiki:Userboxes. They now include a couple for WikiProjects. Would this fit in with what you asking for? --Steve 17:47, 18 May 2010 (UTC)
  • I'd like to have this question (and resulting discussion) moved to the Forum for feedback and suggestions. That way more people in the community can be part of the discussion. Maybe we will get others like Steve or Thomas to help with developing things like this that will help build the community. Another idea to add to this is modifying the moderators userbox ({{Modub}}) so the box can include the localities or topics the user is moderating. Right now we are required to add this detail separately and it doesn't appear within the box itself. --Fran 19:01, 18 May 2010 (UTC)
I've started a forum thread on userboxes inviting readers to comment and make requests for new userboxes. --Steve 22:35, 18 May 2010 (UTC)

From FamilySearch Staff[edit | edit source]

David Crowther (CrowtherDR) will be making changes to some of the pages in the live Wiki site (this site) that will eventually be reflected on the Beta site. We will let you know when the Beta site is updated with the most current backup from the live wiki site (this site). Consequently, if you are watching pages that David works on, you will get notifications for those changes. When you visit the page to see what is different, you may not be able to tell that any change was made. Sometimes it's a style sheet that is changed, or colors, margins, or other formatting. Please do not remove his changes. If you have questions or comments, you can add them to either the discussion page or the Forum.
