Ivecos (Talk)-(Contribution)-(Email)
The Coords keep the project pages on their watchlists, welcome new participants, maintain lists, keep the discussions tidy, on track, and on the right pages, and check for signatures and page links, and develop sub pages and templates as required, etc. - nothing much more than any expereinced project member can do. Coords offer their own suggestions and opinions in the normal way. Please post queries first on the WikiProject talk page. Do contact coordinators on their usertalk page if you have any unanswered queries or clarifications.
