Debbie, thanks so much for the links you added to Record Search from the wiki! Hey, I just wanted to let you know that I did a little editing on FamilySearch Wiki:WikiProject Linking to Record Search. The page contained links whose text included the full URL of the pages that were linked to, and this was stretching the width of the table such that the right side of the table appeared behind the Navigation bar. I went ahead and changed the text of the links so it wouldn't include the full URL. The wiki user's group voted maybe six months ago that the links we make on the wiki should not include full URLs because A) shorter links improve article readability; B) most people don't print the articles; and C) those who do print the articles can select an option in their browser to print the full URL to all links listed on the page.

I hope the changes I made are okay, but if you want to push back or talk them through, please leave me a note on my user talk page. Thanks again for the links you added -- it is so great to see all the community members getting involved in the Maryland barn raising! Ritcheymt 04:17, 17 January 2009 (UTC)
