Thanks, Darlene. I'm trying to give Liz (Noland) Shifflett a run for her money. I think we may be in an unofficial "sticker competition". LOL! She has quite an impressive profile page which reflects all the hard work she has done for Wikitree, especially with the Magna Carta Project and also reflects her exceptional participation with Wikitree. She has been so great to me and she has been like an unofficial mentor. As with anything, when you first join an organization, you never forget the first people who were helpful to you. Any time I have any trouble with anything, she is always there to help. If I were to start over with Wikitree, I would have selected a mentor in the beginning because I think it would have been so much easier than trying to spend countless hours searching all of those Wikitree instructions.
I think I once asked her about a sticker in G2G and while we were discussing it, she mentioned how much she loved stickers and I told her I did too. They can help provide a personal touch in highlighting someone's life and are a very effective way of enhancing the events of people's lives. I even made sure that I put them on the English profiles I have improved as part of the England Project's Orphan Trail and guess what...they even issue you a sticker once you graduate from that program.
I told Liz I think why many people don't have as many stickers is because some people think the "five sticker per profile rule" applies to all profiles. However, if you read the instructions on the Help:Stickers page, it clearly states "This limit does not apply to members' own account profiles. The number of Stickers a member can use on their own profile is entirely up to the member".
Of course, some people are just too humble to put as many stickers on their pages, but not me! After all we're here to share our genealogy and my goal is to have 100 stickers on my profile and to leave Liz in a distant second and I am close. I have even seen where people have gone as far as creating a free space page to list all their stickers. Now that I think about it, that is probably a good idea. So, I may also eventually do that as well if and/or when I run out of space, but I don't foresee that happening soon since I just recently joined Wikitree.
Some stickers are so unique, sometimes they can be hard to find such as my most recent sticker - i.e., the New Netherland descendant sticker which I just added. Those are the ones I value the most because not as many people have them and it can make you feel "special" if you have one. I wouldn't trade my stickers for all the badges in Wikitree. I guess that is in part because we are limited in the amount of badges we can display. Actually, since we have stickers, I don't even see a need for badges, but the badges are also nice and once the European Aristocrats Project is reorganized, I look forward to getting a badge or better yet, possibly a sticker for it.
I can't imagine all the hard work it takes in reorganizing a project. The Scotland project is also currently reorganizing its project by merging the Scottish Clans Project into it. I was able to provide some assistance by reviewing all the Scottish tartans to make sure there was a blurb indicating there was a copyright notice indicating how we were in compliance with the Scottish Crown and making sure each tartan was correctly assigned and corresponded with the Scottish Crown website. As you can imagine after spending all those hours reviewing all those tartans, some of those patterns started to play tricks on my eyes as all those patterns started running together. It was a challenge, but I got through it and I hope I was able to help.
If you ever need any help with any small projects, I would be glad to help. At the moment, I can't do much because I am a little swamped with all the recent responses I have recently received all at once to join some of the other Wikitree projects and as someone recently pointed out, I was trying to do too much too soon, but I will always be glad to make a little extra room for any help. I really value all the hard work of all our Wikitree Leaders such as you and Liz. Good luck with the reorganization.
