== Thank you! == Hi, Sgr2000, Just wanted to thank you for the edits I've seen you adding. In a few Washington counties, you added the MapofUS.org rotating maps. And several great additions to the Websites section. Very helpful. Soo, are part of Genealogyinc.com that used to be StateofUS? We didn't discover it until last Fall. Keep up the good work!

I understand you have added links to some animated maps, which is something we don't have and would be quite helpful to our users.&nbsp; Where you can add your link on a page is in the websites section.&nbsp; That is merely a list of sites that a user might find helpful in researching that particular state/county.&nbsp; If you would like to add your site in that spot on a page, it would not be considered a bare link.&nbsp; Please use good wiki etiquette and place your information at the bottom of the list under the sites that have been there longer.&nbsp; It will also help people notice you as they are trained to look at the bottom of the list for additions.
You have added links to a Google+ Group and a Yahoo Group.&nbsp; We have not previously had links to anything like this on the wiki (except our own Facebook pages).&nbsp; Would you mind briefly telling me about these?[[User:Evancol|Evancol]] 13:33, 4 April 2014 (UTC) Jane === Continued Wiki Edits === Please see my reply above and the concerns it outlines.&nbsp; Specifically: *Blank links.*When and why to add information from another site vs when to add a link to that site.*My concern over links to Google+ groups and Yahoo groups being posted on the wiki with no explanation of their content/intent.*My instructions on wiki etiquette concerning placing additions at the bottom of a list.&nbsp;  In the past 2 weeks, I have rolled back a number of edits you have made to Texas county pages that have contained all of these items.&nbsp; As I said previously, we welcome <u>new</u> content added in an appropriate way to the wiki, and never want to alienate a contributor who is editing in good faith. However, if I do not hear back from you so that we can resolve the inappropriate parts of your edits, and they continue, we will have no choice but to remove your posting privileges. &nbsp; Thank you&nbsp;&nbsp; [[User:Evancol|Evancol]] 17:20, 5 May 2014 (UTC)&nbsp;  Jane Colmenares Chair, Community Council
