Hi WikiTreers!

imageOur fifth(!) Source-a-Thon has come to an end. 

Our goal for the Source-a-Thon was to decrease the number of unsourced profiles by spending 72 hours adding at least one valid source to profiles that didn't have them.

We had an excellent weekend and our event was a great success. Thank you to everyone who participated.  We love these events because they really bring our community together.

This year we added sources to 57,577 profiles in 72 hours! Definitely an accomplishment!

Here are some highlights from the event:

Top 5 Teams:

  • Mighty Oaks - 8,877 (profiles sourced)
  • Team Roses - 8,134
  • Super Sweepers - 5,029
  • Legacy Heirs - 4,078
  • Team Virginia - 3,496

Top 5 Participants:

  • Lucy Lavelle - 1,666
  • Emma MacBeath - 1,432
  • Sandy Patak - 1,183
  • Pip Sheppard - 1,143
  • Charlene Newport - 1,118

Top 5 by Team Average (number of team contributions divided by team members):

  • Team Roses - 387 (average per team member)
  • Team Virginia - 233
  • Kiwi Crew - 231
  • SA Springboks - 176
  • Super Sweepers - 168

Twenty-four teams participated and 17 of them broke 1,000! Five hundred and two members participated – 153 broke 100, 11 more participants broke 500 and 6 more broke 1,000!

Check out all the stats here.
