Dear ISOGG Wiki editor!
We thought you might like to know about some of the major changes that have been made to the ISOGG Wiki in the last few weeks in order to make the site easier to navigate.
- A major redesign of the Wiki home page
- A new Contents Page which lists all the articles in the Wiki arranged in thematic "chapters"
- A new Index which provides an auto-generated alphabetical listing of all the articles in the Wiki
- A new Abbreviations page. Note that these abbreviations also serve as shortcuts for ease of navigation (for example, if you type in "SNP" in the search box you will automatically be redirected to the article for single-nucleotide polymorphism)
- New thematic Portals are in the process of being implemented. These will allow us to group articles and content together by subject matter. The key portals are now linked from the welcome box at the top of the home page
- The Sidebar (the menu on the left of your screen) has been revamped and now also includes a Quick Links section for easy access to key Wiki pages such as the Contents Page, Index and Glossary
- A Help Portal is being developed to serve as a home for all the links to the help pages.
We hope you like the improvements!
Work continues to develop the Wiki and planning is now being co-ordinated on the ISOGG Wiki Roadmap. Please feel free to add your ideas, contribute to existing articles or create new ones.
Further suggestions are always welcome. Please add your suggestions to the Roadmap or contact the Wiki admins.

Welcome to ISOGG Wiki!
We hope you will be bold and contribute to the ISOGG Wiki. You will probably want to read the help pages or the editing Cheatsheet.
Don't be afraid to edit – anyone can edit almost any page, and we encourage you to be bold! Find something that can be improved and make it better—for example, spelling, grammar, rewriting for readability, or removing unconstructive edits. Changes to controversial topics and ISOGG Wiki's main pages should usually be discussed first.
Remember – you can't break a wiki; all edits can be reversed, fixed or improved later. The ISOGG Wiki is allowed to be imperfect. So go ahead, edit an article and help make the ISOGG Wiki the best information source on the Internet for genetic genealogy!
Again, welcome and have fun! Cecemoore 02:47, 28 July 2010 (UTC)
