If you can type emails/Word documents and use formatting buttons to bold, italic, underscore, do bullets/numbers, etc ... you're already a whiz at wiki editing!
It's so easy!!
It's as easy as 1-2-3.
(You can actually make your own edits to your RAOGK listing/description faster than it would take you to send an email to RAOGK. Of course, if you don't want to make your own edits, you can still contact RAOGK.
If you're logged in, at the bottom of your screen you will see a brown bar with options for:
My contributions -- provides links to pages you've added to, modified, etc
Follow -- links to pages you are Following
Customize -- change your settings
Other options as a RAOGK account member: Instead of having an email link for your contact info and descriiption of services, your link can be to your user Message Wall and people can leave their research requests on the Message Wall(vs. sending you an email).
Navigation Tips, etc.
Quickly go to a page by typing the page name in the search box and either click the magnifying glass icon or press the Enter key. If you type slowly or it's a long name, you may very soon see the page you want in an "autocomplete" menu below the box; click that!
Quickly go to your User Page by clicking your Username in the upper right corner of the screen.
Discuss any aspect of the site and ask questions at the Forum, or on an article's "Talk" page, or by leaving a comment at the bottom of any page. (The Talk page button is at the top of each page.)
Be sure to sign and date your contributions on forum or talk pages, so that readers know "whom to talk to" and whether your message is probably still of current interest. One of the blue buttons above the edit box prints your signature with timestamp in one click.
Could you please send me your email info to RAOGK ?
I will use your email information only to communicate to wiki members. A mass email is easier than posting on each individual's Message Wall
(The wiki probably has a mass alert feature, but I just haven't discovered it yet.)
Please let me know your username for the wiki account
Please let me know if you're a Researcher or Volunteer
If you're a volunteer, please let me know:
the country or state you volunteer for ... and the county or province.
a description of your volunteer services
(With the volunteer info above, I can activate a link for you on the appropriate wiki page.)
I know I'll need to make a "mass email" periodically and don't want anyone to miss the news.
I put my email on the Lancashire England page (England02). I hope it was okay that I added some pictures. I was trying to figure out how to put them on a separate page, but figured until them, everyone could still enjoy them. I was also trying to figure out how to create a page for a map of Wales and of England like you have on the Ohio page? Maybe the picture link could be added when I learn how to do the map link?
