Tartan, and other, Trail Projects. A Request

+31 votes

When looking at Suggestions, or just looking for an interesting profile to work on, please don't edit a profile that is marked as part of a trail project. They are well marked with an image indicating that they should not be edited. The Tartan Trail profiles will have an image like


prominently displayed at the top of the profile. The notices are hard to miss.

The signatures in Edit mode are:

{{Image|file=Scotland_-_Tartan_Trail_Team.jpg |align=c |size=m |caption= }} 

{{Image|file=Scotland_-_Tartan_Trail_Team.png |align=c |size=m |caption= }} 

While it is usually welcome to have profiles improved, these profiles are teaching tools and are part of the process that those who want to join the associated Project must complete in order to become a member.

Thank you for your cooperation.

... and the teaching often helps people who may be relatively inexperienced both in WikiTree and in genealogy to strengthen their skills, to the great benefit of WikiTree as a whole. I am very grateful to the Projects which have teaching trails like this, and to those who do the mentoring and teaching. They are doing WikiTree a really valuable service

Thanks Rod and Doug!

Hi, Doug,

All these images for the England Orphan Trail, the Scotland Tartan Trail, and including the Scotland Reserved Profile graphic are noted on the Data Doctors Project page under the Special Situations section that expressly states that they should NOT be worked on by Data Doctors.

There were a few infractions on England Orphan Trail profiles over a year ago and the leaders contacted me to reinforce the requirement.

You are welcome to contact me if there are any infractions, but I would hope the prominent warning on the project page would prevent any work on these by Data Doctors.

Let me know if there have been issues by email, please.  Thank you for the post.

Hi, Doug,

You might want to edit this post to include the Tartan Trail "Reserved" image.  

We have that and the above posted on the Data Doctors Project page under Special Situations - what Data Doctors should NOT work on.

Please add the tag: suggestions.
