Registration is now closed for our 2020 Spring Clean-a-Thon

This is our fourth (!) annual Clean-a-Thon. The mission is to clear out as many database suggestions as possible over the 72 hours. 

The cleaning will start on Friday, April 24, at 8 AM (EDT) and run until Monday, April 27, at 8 AM (EDT).

Will you join us?

To register, just click the ANSWER button and say "Sign me up!" or whatever and include a few words about your location and/or genealogical interests. This will help us assign you to a team. If you already know what team you'd like to be on, say that. The current teams are listed here. More may be added.  Please double-check and make sure the team you are interested in is participating.

Happy Cleaning!

Thanks so much! ❤️
Can't get the tracker to register.
Hi, Roy ... can you tell us more?

Have you entered your Profile ID in the box underneath where it says "Update Status:" and the "Your WikiTreeID:" ?

If you have a screenshot of what's going on, that will also be helpful.
it is working fine now. I thought I had to register each update, but it is doing it automatically, no need to click extra boxes.

Glad you got squared away, Roy!
Why do you guys close the registration before the event is over?

Life is hectic and internet access unpredicitble so never know if I can join in these kinds of things so pre-registration is not a good idea for me. But I do have time and access this weekend so I would have like to join in.
I'm sorry you didn't get registered in time, Jennifer. We have to have time to get the teams organized and communicate with the team captains in time for them to prepare, as well.

In the future, you can always register, and if life gets in the way, it's not a problem if you end up not being able to participate. We all understand how things can go sometimes.

Watch for the Connect-a-thon this summer. It should be sometime in July.
Wow, I surely thought I'd signed up, but it doesn't appear that I have. I guess I didn't do it right. Disappointing, when you try to follow instructions but don't succeed. :-(

Registration is now closed!

I am so disappointed, as I desperately wanted to participate in this one this year.  I guess I misread, as I thought it said I had to pre register before Friday 24th. I must be more careful in the future. I wanted to join in with Team England. If there is any chance I can still get in please let me know. I totally understand there are rules for good reasons though.

Enjoy every, and hope everyone has fantastic Spring Cleaning!

I'm in and will be co-captaining the Tree Nuts!
by Eowyn Walker G2G Astronaut (1.9m points)

Hey!!! Me, too! Nice to meet you. laugh

Me, too.   I intend to work on 823, 822, 811,  824, and 825 errors in that order.  I will concentrate on profiles by the profile managers who have the greatest number of suggestions, since that is low hanging fruit.
