Considerations for potential Community Council member:[edit | edit source]

Note: FamilySearch employees and current missionaries are not eligible to sit on the Council*

The community member should:

  • Display an interest in many areas of the wiki.
  • Be actively involved with the wiki. Ideally, the member will have at least one (1) year of ongoing wiki contributions.
  • Be available to attend weekly council meetings.  (The Community Council meets every Wednesday at 1 p.m. MST)
  • Be available and have a desire to work with the community on special projects as needed.
  • Willing to chair a committee as per their interest (The committee and its focus to be determined by FamilySearch).
  • Display ability to be a part of the team concept of the council (multiple people creating a single unified voice).
  • Ability to commit to a minimum of two (2) years service.
  • Cannot have had any prior moderation or suspension from the wiki.

*Members of the original Community Council are grandfathered in.

Removing a Council Member[edit | edit source]

A Community Council member may be removed for the following:

  • Inactivity on the wiki averaging less than 1 edit per week for a period of two (2) months.
  • Divulging details of confidential council discussions.
  • Inability to work cohesively with current council.
  • Any disciplinary actions brought against them on the part of the Mediation Committee or FamilySearch (moderating, banning, etc).
