Wiki Contributor Meeting[edit source]
We would like to extend this invitation to join us for the next Wiki Contributor's Meeting to be held Thursday, June 6th at 1:00 PM Mountain time. Please follow the link to the Wiki Contributors Meeting for further instructions on how to join:
We are looking forward to your feedback on how things are going as well as:
- hints or tips you have to share that may benefit other moderators.
- ways to resolve problems that arise.
- areas that you may need assistance.
If for some reason you cannot attend, please forward anything you would like to share. We will be happy to bring it before the group and provide a response. You may also post any feedback on the agenda above or on my Talk page: https://familysearch.org/wiki/en/User_talk:SavingStories

Moving pages[edit source]
I noticed a note on one of the Costa Rica pages the page needed renaming. I added a reply to your note and just wanted to let you know. Thanks for all your continued efforts to help with the Wiki research content. We appreciate all that you are doing. --Fran 15:49, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
¿How do we get in touch with you, Anelson?[edit source]
We would love to coordinate your help in the Spanish wiki page for Panama. Get in touch with me, please: Francisco Gómez (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you have a Skype name, or some other chat username, please let me know.
Hello, Anelson, and welcome to FamilySearch Wiki!
Thank you for your contributions! Please continue editing any articles that are of interest to you. You may find that you would like to help with one of the Projects Seeking Contributors where you may work with experienced users who will help you feel comfortable. If not, please know there are other ways to get involved, including joining the Welcoming Committee.
This message is posted on your talk page which is associated with your personal user page. You may practice editing on the Wiki by creating a user page about yourself. We hope you like this place and will feel part of the community.
There are a few pages you may find helpful:
- The Community Center for the Wiki.
- The Guiding Principles of FamilySearch Wiki.
- Learn to search for articles.
- Learn how to edit and contribute.
- Check the Manual of Style.
Please sign your name only on discussion/talk pages using four tildes (~). This will automatically create your username with a timestamp for your comments. If you need personal assistance, feel free to contact the Welcoming committee members.
Again, welcome! Fran 15:03, 18 May 2010 (UTC)
Welcome to the wiki, Anelson! Do you have any questions as you dive into editing wiki pages? I'll be happy to help with any information you need! RitcheyMT 22:17, 31 May 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for asking. The old Panama portal is ready to be deleted, but someone else needs to do this. I'm not sure who to notify.

Moderator/Adopter issues coming to a vote[edit source]
As you probably already know, FamilySearch launched an Adopt-a-Page program at the Federation of Genealogical Societies conference over the summer. Many groups are signing up to adopt a page. We need your help in order to resolve some important questions about the relative roles that Moderators and Adopters ought to play and how they can work together. These questions and discussions are on the new FamilySearch Wiki Contributors' Corner forum. We are going to hold a vote on these issues by year's end, and the resolutions will change the roles Moderators and Adopters play, so please visit the forum and add your thoughts. Thanks!
