It's a new month, so I thought I would check in again on Wikitree+ Australian maintenance categories:

Hi Clare 

I am a reasonably new-comer to Wikitree and the Australia Project. I would love to know more about the monthly stats and what I can do to help improve them as a member of the Australia Project (even if I am a member with a limited amount of time available to do much). 

Also thank you for your posts of the last 2 months that meant I found out that there were maintenance categories smiley I have SOOOO much to learn still.

Hi Rosalie,

You are welcome to add biographies, sources or profiles in response to maintenance tags, but I think the path that you're on already is just as valuable, particularly with a limited amount of time.

You're already adding profiles and sources for people in your direct line, people you are likely to have far more reliable information about: your cousins and ancestors. You're learning about sources, categories and tags, and you're building great biographies. Thanks for all your contributions!

We don't want Wikitree to become a chore, hopefully it will stay fun and interesting. That said, I think as Wikitree grows, maintenance tags may become more important. Who knows, Wikitreers might more often be looking for direction to where they can improve profiles in a targeted way. Right now, there are so many different ways to improve Wikitree that tags don't really need to direct our attention, they're just nice to have and interesting to keep an eye on over time.
Thank you Clare :) so far I am still in the full of enthusiasm stage of engaging with Wikitree. It has so many levels there is a lot to become familiar with.
