  • I added a new heading to GEDCOM Junk. There are 8000 new 853 suggestions.
  • After completing most of the template documentation, I am starting to validate template parameters. First new suggestions include missing required parameters and using deprecated parameters. More will come soon. There may be some mistakes in template documentation. If so, just let me know. There are 9000 new 848 suggestions.
  • I added new magic keyword PendingMerge to search for pending merges in combination with any other text. https://wikitree.sdms.si/default.htm?report=srch1&Query=PendingMerge+Sweden
  • I added possibility to search template parameters. That enables you to search for any text inside curly brackets. To explicitly search template text, use templatetext=Andersson https://wikitree.sdms.si/default.htm?report=srch1&Query=templatetext%3DAndersson
  • I added a link to template definition on 84x suggestions in info column.
  • In search results on WikiTree+ I changed the display of templates. I group them together and display the number of each one if more than one. Example: https://wikitree.sdms.si/default.htm?report=srch1&Query=templatefull%3Dancestry_image
  • I also added possibility to search by full template name. Use underscore instead of spaces. templatefull=Ancestry_Image
  • I added to Connection finder 2 new types of relation search. Paternal Lines and Maternal Lines. This can help in DNA queries to find a common father/mother. https://wikitree.sdms.si/default.htm?report=disp2&WikiTreeID1=+Whitten-1&WikiTreeID2=Whitten-819&relatives=4
  • I exposed the actual data on which location suggestions are based. https://wikitree.sdms.si/function/WTShowTable/Table.htm?table=Countries Based on the changes we did last week in the table, there are some new 6x8 spelling suggestions and 612 Location too early ones.
  • I went through WikiData False Suggestions lists and I made some changes to the algorithms to improve the lists. The lists where the algorithm was changed are gender ones 551, 552 and date ones 553, 555, 556, 558.
  • I decided to remove Unconnected to global tree suggestions 568 and 569. 54x suggestions covers that much more precisely.
  • In suggestions 724 Wrong word in First Name, 734 Wrong word in Preferred Name and 774 Wrong word in Last Name at Birth added checking of Annonymous on open profiles.
  • I removed 451 and 453 suggestions, since they weren't wery usefull.
  • Profile completeness suggestions are now LIVE. I have prepared a system to calculate suggestions about the profiles completeness for a member if he chooses so. These suggestions are no longer project oriented, although a project can choose to check project managed profiles. I built a verification of managed profiles based on Category:Suggestions_-_Include_Profile_Completeness. If a WikiTree member adds himself to this category, his managed profiles will be checked for data completeness.
  • I released a new version of WikiTree+ Chrome extension. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/wikitree%20/giodhdfeabddjnlhknbggojlgpnhanof It has a few new things also usable to DD. Changes in version is 0.3.2 are:

    I prepared two new suggestions that list all missing parent relations between existing profiles.
    The suggestion is based on FindAGrave relations. In cases where both profiles are linked to findagrave and there is a parent relation on findagrave and there is no parent on wikitree, it suggests the connection. 
    Of course you should first check if both findagrave memorials represent the correct persons on wikitree. Then you should try to find a source for the parent claim and add the relation if everything checks out.

    Added new magic word SourceJunk to search engine. It finds profiles with text 

    • "Family Data Collection"
    • "Millennium File" 
    on the profile. Those are present on 47000 profiles. Here is a list of profiles  with SourceJunk.

    Thanks, Aleš, for these updates to WikiTree Plus.

    One thing I've noticed is that the profile count for a number of English counties has decreased. I assume this is due to changes to the country definition for England?

    Are you able to provide more detail on these changes, so I can add an explanation to the weekly stats that the England Project collects?

    Thanks a lot!

    Can you be more specific on the change. I didn't change much about england in the last few weeks.

    An example is Worcestershire. Last week, the total number of profiles given at the bottom of the Unsourced report was 22862. This week, the equivalent Unsourced report shows a total of 22577, a drop of 285 in the total profiles.

    Those could have been sourced with the Connect a Thon this past weekend, especially since the England Great Oaks team did a lot of updates.  While 'connecting' profiles, they could have been sourcing plenty.

    I don't know if you can see this 

    https://www.wikitree.com/index.php?title=Automated:DD_Unsourced_List_ENG_WOR&diff=next&oldid=107517502

    but the number dropped when I fixed the processing of the Category:Worcestershire, Unsourced Profiles

    It seems that number is the total without the category profiles. The change happened  on 04:24, 17. julij 2020 

    Thanks very much, Aleš. That explains it!

    Thanks also for fixing the processing of the English county unsourced categories smiley

    Thanks for the Data Doctor Report. You find again a mistake in the part of the tree I administer as profile manager.

    Mistake is corrected now.
    by Dieter Lewerenz G2G Astronaut (1.2m points)
    That is what it is all about. Something watching over what you do and point out potential mistakes..
