As some of our team members have not done this before, I thought we could use a quick go over for what to do.
Any open profile that has no primary sources and was created before the thon starts can be counted. If you find any profile that has no main sources and you can fix it, do! It can count as long as you are not making new profiles, just for the purpose of sourcing them. example I saw in a different post: If you find a find a grave or census and it has other family that is not in the tree, you count the ones already in the system after sourcing, then add the new members but the new ones do not count for the total of sourced.
First, find a profile and source it.
Second, Remove the word unsourced and the brackets around it from the profile. Then save as you normally would.
Third, a green box pops up at the top. It has a "button" to click that says challenge tracker. Click that "button". It will bring up another box.
Fourth, at the top it has a spot for your ID. make sure it is in there and correct. Under that there will be a spot to check beside the source-a-thon. Click that spot to show you sourced it and want it to count. Then there is a spot at the bottom to click to submit. Click that!
Last, you have now, after doing the above, counted your point. Find another profile to source and start the process again at the beginning. Repeat this as many times as you are able.
The sourcing will start on Friday, October 2, 2020 at 8 AM (EDT) and run until Monday 5, 2020 October, at 8 AM (EDT).
We are a group that works in our own way. If you like to forge ahead at full speed to get something on each profile, that is great. If you like to work on one and make it as loved and beautiful as possible before moving on, feel free and show that profile all the love you can. We do not care if you wish to work in one specific place or all over the world. One hour or most of the weekend is fine as long as you are not putting yourself or someone else in harms way. Just do it your way and lets all have fun.
Respect for each other is a must, as is supportiveness, we are a wonderful team and amazing people.
