Maryland Church Records[edit source]

Hey there, Barry! Thanks for the work you've done on Maryland Church Records! As the barn raising winds down, I want to get a feel for how each article on the Maryland Barn Raising Tasks is coming along so I can tell where to allocate any help that contributors can give for a last push. Could you either send me a message by editing my User Discussion page or go to the Maryland Barn Raising Tasks page and update the column on the % of "doneness" the article is at now?

Census Project Backlog Prioritization[edit source]

Could you take a look at the Requirement Backlog (second table) on FamilySearch Wiki:WikiProject U.S. Census and rank the requirements/stories in priority order? You can do this by the Delphi method: Give the lowest amount of points (1) to the lowest-priority item and the highest (41? 42?) to the highest-priority item. We're doing this individually because it's so hard to get everyone together for a meeting. We need to get this done by the end of the day Monday 30 June so each individual can choose their stories and plan their tasks for the sprint.

After we tally the points for each item, we'll re-sort the backlog in priority order. Then we'll individually choose stories we want to attack during the sprint. Thanks! Ritcheymt 12:33, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

To all FamilySearch Wiki Contributors: An apology is in order...[edit source]

By way of introduction, my name is Ben Bennett and I’ve recently joined the FamilySearch team as the product manager for the Wiki and Forums. Put simply, my job is to ensure that your experience, as contributors and users of the Wiki and Forums is excellent. To this end, an apology is in order.
As you know, we recently implemented a new user ID/sign in process for the FamilySearch Wiki. As we implemented this new system, I personally heard from many of you. You shared with me problems that were occurring for you as you tried to sign in, edit or do other things that resulted in lost work, lost time and frustration for you, our key contributors and users. Please accept my sincere apology for the poor performance and poor experience associated with the Wiki during the past few weeks. Please also accept my commitment that the FamilySearch team will learn from this experience and do all that we can to prevent situations like this in the future. To this end, I wanted to share with you ...CONTINUE

Dear KirkBE,

Hi I am part of the New Wiki Transition Team. We are trying to get things cleaned up in the Wiki. We were wondering if you know how to categorize your new pages. We are trying to teach users to do the categorization. If you do not know how or do not wish to would you please send us a message? We would love to teach you.

Thank you
Wiki Transition Team

Dear KirBE, Wiki support has received an email saying the picture we have on Greene County TN of the court house, is not the court house. Would you please check the picture and change it if needed. Thank you for your help. FamilySearch Support

Dear KirBe,

We have found a page that may need a move or correction.  We hope to get your input.  The page is

Greenwood County, South Carolinad.   There is already a general county page.  What was the use for this page or have you already replaced this and does it need moving or deletion?  Sandralpond 17:06, 22 June 2011 (UTC)

The Featured Article Committee is busy looking at Wiki Articles to see if they qualify to be featured articles on the wiki main page.  There are 9 topics in the "contents" that have no content.  It also has only 1 reference.  We would like for you to address these issues.  Thank you,   FA Committee
