Tommy, this is great. Thank you. Very helpful!

One suggestion: consider other color usage. Or using bold instead of colors. I find these the red and blue difficult to read.

Just one point, your dates are confusing. Wikitree uses day/month you are using month/day, I find it hard to keep changing my thinking within the one site.
by Marion Poole G2G Astronaut (1.2m points)

I changed the numeric month to the three letter month abbreviation.  Thanks for pointing out the confusion.

Thanks Tommy, much appreciated.

Very cool - would you mind if I add a section for when the Connectors recognizes new pilots and astronauts?
by SJ Baty G2G Astronaut (1.1m points)
Place it between Projects and Chrome Extensions
Will do.
On second thought, I went ahead and placed it under the News section as a subsection.  I added the last three entries.
Nice idea, SJ.

seems to cover a lot of the same ground?

by Jonathan Crawford G2G6 Pilot (102k points)
I've never looked at the Calendar, but THIS, if it shows up in G2G each week I WILL look at it
