Purpose of edits - 8 June 2011[edit source]

Charles, I see you made some changes and then reversed some, but not all. There is no edit summary, so I'm not sure what you wanted to change or if you wanted to revert it back to the 13 April 2011 version. Let me know and I will help you make the change. --Steve 00:35, 9 June 2011 (UTC)

Charles I see you made some more edits on 9 June 2011. The result of which was to remove the type parameter and the code that changed the spelling of template from center to centre based on the name of the page. You also made a change in the text that is displayed from "This article describes the services and resources available at a Family History Center" to " This article describes the services and resources available at this Family History Center"'. I have reversed these changes as the code needs to be present for the type parameter and the spelling change, as these are utilised in the wiki. Also the sentence change results in bad grammar. The object of the sentence is "This article" and so you can not refer to "this FHC". --Steve 05:28, 10 June 2011 (UTC)

Recieved via email Steve, I changed the FHCpage because I had a FHC in Virginia that the city spelled its name as Centreville. That spelling made it so I could not categorize the FHC in "Virginia Family History Centers." It would only allow me to categorize it in "Virginia Family History Centres which was of course created a red link. The only way I could get it to the proper category was to erase the code that made the spelling of the link to match the spelling of the place name. If you have another way to correct this, please do so. --Ccsmith 15:17, 10 June 2011 (UTC)

Hi Charles, OK I now understand what you were trying to achieve. Your edits did change the category for the Centreville Virginia Family History Center, but it also changed the category for all the FHC pages with the British spelling of Centre. While your edit was active they all had redlinks for categories. As the template analyses the page name looking for how the word Center is spelt work for the vast majority of page, the template code should not be removed for this one exception. For the Centreville Virginia Family History Center page and any others that need it I have edit the template code in that page to use an additional parameter called "type" which overrides the wording in the template and used the blank "category=" parameter to suppress the auto-category. I think you will find that this is a workable solution. --Steve 16:51, 10 June 2011 (UTC)

Removed text inviting users to edit/add page[edit source]

Hi, I've removed the recently added text To edit or add to this FHC page, review the instructions and guidelines for FHC pages. as similar text is already included in the {{FHC-stub}}, which is the best for it. The {{FHC-stub}} should be added to FHC pages that are just structure/layout with no substantial or little content. Once they have been developed the stub template can be removed. --Steve (talk| contribs) 16:42, 9 October 2011 (UTC)
