Welcome! [3 June 2011]
Yes, WeRelate is still not out of beta and is a bit clumsy in places. There is just one programmer, Dallan. He has worked at this full time for I don't know how long, but is currently doing consulting work, so changes are done as he has time. He has recently put a notice on the front page to see if he can recruit someone to help with the programming. He is good to be open to suggestions and ideas to make things better. He seems to really depend on the users to tell him what needs the most attention and why. He monitors the watercooler, so hopefully he'll see your comments, but you can always use his talk page to be more specific. I appreciate the opportunity to be in on the building of this site. I think the potential is great, if they can just make it a bit easier to use! --Janiejac 02:41, 3 June 2011 (EDT)
need proof [15 June 2011]
You added Family:James Woods and Unknown (2) as parents of Person:Frances Wood (3) with no sources. The birth record already cited on Frances' page explicitly identifies her parents as John and Mary. ??? --Jrich 00:23, 16 June 2011 (EDT)
Oops! - I typed in the wrong name - it is now corrected.
I have no issue with the sources for her parents - my own stop at Frances Wood.
PS - I am glad someone is watching at least some of what I am entering - we are all subject to error. --Jhamstra 00:51, 16 June 2011 (EDT)
links to other werelate pages [29 September 2011]
Links to other werelate page should be done using double brackets and the page title, rather than single brackets and URLs. For example [[Person:Isaac Newton (19)|Isaac Newton]]. The text after the bar is used as the display text of the link Isaac Newton or it may be left off and you get Person:Isaac Newton (19). This form of link is preferrable to using URLs because it is easier when somebody else edits the page (less line wrap problems in edit mode, less troublesome syntax - no underscores or unicode characters - so fewer errors) and because it clearly shows up as a WeRelate link so safe while the other form looks like any external link possibly on some remote website of unknown safety. It is also conceivable that changes in the future could break the URL form whereas updates would ensure that the intra-werelate links continue to work. --Jrich 14:07, 29 September 2011 (EDT)
Zeeland resource [12 November 2011]
I see that some of your Dutch ancestors were from Zeeland. I'm not sure if you know of http://www.zeeuwengezocht.nl. It's a great resource for Zeeland records. --Jennifer (JBS66) 08:30, 12 November 2011 (EST)
