Hi, thanks for fixing the bronze medal. You saved me from having to post in G2G. I couldn't find the template for that one anywhere. I don't seem to be the only one having trouble finding it. Are you a part of that project where that can be resolved? Or maybe I just don't know the correct place to look up the medals?

Hi Sharon. For the Medal Template it is a case of having to use the category picker to ensure the correct wording of the required category. Why some medals have "Medal" as part of the category name or not is not something I am aware of the reasoning. I am only a member of the Categorization Project and not a member of the Military and War project or the Templates project that also have responsibility for how categories are created and displayed in templates for Military medals.

Thanks for fixing things on William Linn's profile! I am getting better with stickers, but they are still sometimes more mysterious than I realize...

Hi Darren,

I've given you back the New Zealand Project badge :) Sorry it took so long - you messaged me right as I was in the midst of prepping for my university exams :) Myself and Nic Donnelly are currently in the process of working behind-the-scenes on a soft restructure of the project, so there currently isn't a lot happening, but we're hoping that within the next couple of months or so we will have ironed out the kinks and have everything moving!

I'm glad to hear that you're back around again :)

Regards, Amelia

Hi, Darren! Thank you for your edits to my ancestor’s page. I made a lot of rookie mistakes but you took the time to edit them. I am learning by following your example. Again, thank you so much!!

Hi Darren,

Thank-you for adding categories to my ancestor's profile. I had no idea that categories were a thing until you did that:) Thanks again!

Hi Darren

my name is Carolyn and I was adopted out at birth and have been told that my farther is Robert Morton Williamson who has a sister named June and a brother named Morris. Their parents were Alfred Sydney and Pauline Buckley Williamson. I’m hoping someone can help me find Robert(Bob) or any other children he may have had.

Kind Regards Carolyn.

Hi Darren.

Just an update. Alfred Edward and Matilda Hill will be getting a headstone on their unmarked grave. He will have been gone 65 years on the 3rd January, so some our decedent's have fundraised to make this possible. We are having a memorial at his grave site at Waikumete Cemetery. If you are up this way please come. Regards Gayle Shaw (Fletcher)
