I want to thank you for all of your awesome efforts in regards to the welcoming committee. You have been an angel over the newbie contributors and have invited their continued edits and contributions. I know that "Thank YOU" is not enough, but it comes from the heart in great appreciation for all that you have done. I look forward to meeting you and thanking you in person.

With your four wonderful children and husband I know you must be busy, so thank you for serving a mission. Janell and I visited 5/26/11 and soon she will train you on something else, but she said we could have you a bit longer.
Much thanks to you, for spending time in the Wiki with our authors and editors and all contributions you make that have helped the Wiki to grow. The Research Wiki is in its first years but it is growing and becoming a wonderful tool that helps people find answers in one space and costs only in effort to search on their part.
Vickie, Janell liked our new letter we believe will be friendlier and warmer, but by the time it is put up you may not even be on the team.We want to improve the process for Welcoming new authors and editors in the Wiki. I want to make each member of the committee aware of some changes coming in June:
We will have another Welcome Message Template designed to be more individualized. The others will be there too but we hope that you will use this new welcome message. Steve Cottrell will be helping us with the Template, a special thanks to him.
Please read more carefully what the contributor or editor have put on the page. The current steps listed for reviewing the contributions are good to follow.
Avoid adding the welcome message before following the steps outlined.
The question Templates will stay the same.
We thank you again for all you do.
