 Adkins thank you for working on the pages, good idea to ask Steve to help Thank you. Rorie Rorie! I made a very bad mistake on the Idaho main page. Need help to fix it. Will contact Steve Cottrel, unless you know what to do. The image and the banner and other data should be at the top. AdkinsWH 23:34, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

Papua New Guinea-stub[edit source]

Hi, I see you amended the list of stubs to include one for Papua New Guinea. I have now created the stub and the associated category. --Steve 16:15, 6 October 2010 (UTC)

Adoption sign for FLGenWeb[edit source]

Hi Rorie, I noticed that you had started but not finished two adoption signs for the FLGenWeb project, {{Adoption FLGenWeb}} and {{Adoption FLGenWeb Project}}. I have corrected to code so that either one will work. As they are now identical (apart from the name), you should probably mark one for deletion.

I have also updated the instructions for creating a new adoption sign to refer to the documentation for the adoption sign template rather than {{UserBox Adopt-A-Wiki Page}} which is an example of how a sign looks, rather than the code to use when creating a new sign. --Steve 12:52, 11 January 2011 (UTC)

Getting Started pages project[edit source]

Thanks for volunteering to help with the Getting Started pages project! I have been working on the Help:Tour page and was wondering if you could come share your thoughts - what concepts are needed for a "Tour" of the wiki?  Here is a Sandbox page with the general idea. Feel free to add your own edits/thoughts. 

Also, the Edit & Contribute pages just had some changes made, what do you think?

Community Center is next..... --janellv 02:29, 25 February 2011 (UTC)

Utah Pages[edit source]

I just noticed that you added a note on the Utah discussion page about helping with the Utah pages. Sorry I didn't see the note before tonight. We'd love your help. Were you volunteering to be an assistant moderator, or to help with the general content improvement? Right now I'm reviewing all the content that has already been added for Utah, and evaluating the format and styles that exist on all the pages. There are some basic things that need adding, but with the pages the way they are right now, I'm perplexed about where to put the content. Currently I'm gathering my analysis in a Google Doc, but will add the results to the FamilySearch Wiki:WikiProject Utah in the near future. The first thing I need to add on each county page is the template for the invitation to be the moderator. If you have any ideas as to where this little piece of content should go on the county pages, let me know. I welcome your ideas. --Fran 07:06, 18 March 2011 (UTC)

West Virginia[edit source]

I see major changes on the layout and format of the WV page. Did you do that? If so, please tell me more.

Charlene Charlene Pipkin 17:38, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

Never mind. It has nothing to do with your edits. The appearance of the page is completely different when viewed in Firefox. I'll give "Feedback" on that. Charlene Pipkin 18:39, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

Ohio[edit source]

Hi there. I believe you are approving and posting the county locator maps I uploaded for the counties in Northeast Ohio. It would be great if these could be labeled at "Oh-county.png" to remain consistent with the existing naming convention already on the wiki. I would love to go through all 88 counties and upload pictures, but this is obviously a gigantic task being that I'd have to pull each one off of Wikimedia Commons and upload them one at a time by hand. If there is a way way easier way for someone on the "inside" to do this, I would appreciate it. I am trying to use these locator maps to place infoboxes on each of the county pages for Ohio to neaten things up! Let me know if you can help streamline this or if I can be of any further help. - LeeTHawkins 15:36, 16 August 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for the information. Very helpful! Kjhitz 17:30, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for all you do![edit source]

You do such a great job, Rorie, leading meetings on Tuesdays, all the work on Idaho. You have a gift for knowing what to do and doing so much of it. You understand issues, yet are totally unafraid of repititous (sp?) detail. Thanks. AdkinsWH 03:59, 7 March 2012 (UTC)

FSbook template[edit source]

Hi Rorie -- Thanks for your help with the FSbook templates! The site has changed somehow and it looks like it now wants us to leave off the "IE" prefix in the FSbook template. Correct example:{{FSbook|79505}}. Hope this helps. Thanks again! Murphynw 16:25, 16 October 2012 (UTC)

[edit source]

Rorie, you marked Braddock's Road for deletion but it has a ton of links. Do you really want it deleted? averyld 20:15, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

No need to add delete flag/template to pages that do not exist[edit source]

Hi Rorie,

I notice that you are creating pages requesting that they be Deleted. The only reason it then need to be deleted it because by asking for it to be deleted you created. Any page name that is a red link does not exist. If you believe the page should not be created you need to find the pages where the red link is being produced. If you look on the Special:WantedPages you can find the pages that are requesting the new page by following the blue number followed by the word links. --Steve (talk| contribs) 17:58, 1 February 2013 (UTC)

Category:Riverton FamilySearch Library Clases[edit source]

Rorie find this missplelled category and have created a new one for you. Category:Riverton FamilySearch Library Classes. Hope this helps. Sandralpond 14:52, 19 May 2013 (UTC)

Adams County, Idaho[edit source]

Hi Jenson1,

Wilma Adkins has asked that I contact you to see if you would like all of the Idaho counties to have the "Idaho Button" and the "Quick start" pattern as on the top of Adams County, Idaho page.

You may also want to look at that same patterns that exist on the Utah County pages as you contemplate your decision. I would be most happy to add the above to all of Idaho counties.

Please advise.
