Hi Integrators Challenge Participants!

It's time for this month's Integrators Challenge. Prior months' stats can be found here for all the previous G2G Integrators challenges.

Here's the Challenge Tracker Results Page that has up to the minute stats for March. (Give it a chance to be updated by Alex). The URL (if you need it)  is: https://wikitree.sdms.si/Challenges/IntegratorsChallenge/20220301/User.htm

To participate:

'''Option One for Participating in the Integrators Challenge.'''

  1. Answer here (NOT comment). You can use the Challenge Tracker (preferred) or list your contributions in the comments under your answer here. You only need to post once. 
  2. If you opt to use the Tracker you are ready to go. (give it a few minutes to be updated for this month). 
  3. If you opt to just post in this thread, list the G2G question you worked on and what you did here (answered the question, create a profile, source profile) in a comment on your answer. Number your contributions.
  4. All Challenge activity should involve G2G questions from two months ago or more. If the question is unanswered try to answer it.
  5. Add the URL/Webpage Address of the question used to create the profile(s) under your Answer here when a profile is created to answer a G2G question. 

Whatever question you choose, look at the information there and check to see if there is a profile on WikiTree yet. Yes? Move whatever information might be in the question to the profile, and put a link to the profile on the question in G2G so everyone is aware there is now a profile on WikiTree.

No profile? Create one (or a few if several people are mentioned in the question, comments, and answers), and do the same as above. 

These are some threads to get you started if you don't want to do some searching on your own. If you use one of these, comment on your post below with which you are working on so you aren't doubling up another's work. Everything should be sourced!

'''Option two for Participating in the Integrators Challenge.''' 

Click here to Create profiles using the Category: Needs Profiles Created. Selecting your Country and State.

  1. Create the profile, checking to make sure the profile does not already exist.
  2. Using the Tracker, click the Integrators Challenge box, click "New Profile from Needs Profiles Created (Adding URL of the profile Created between the two Parentheses) and click Add Action.
  3. Add information to the bio and add sources to improve the profile and click the Integrators Challenge box and select Improve Profile from Needs Profiles Created (Add URL) and backspace out (Add URL) and add the URL of the profile improved.
  4. REMOVE  the category line at the top of the bio when you are done creating all the profiles for the family members  ie: [[Category: xxxx Project Needs Profiles Created]]. You can also add the ie: (Category: xxxx Project Needs Profiles Created) to the newly created profile(s) until all the family members have been added and sourced then it needs to be removed.
  5. Ask in the G2G Forum if any member is interested in adopting the profile.
  6. Try to connect the profile to a family/ancestor or tree already at WikiTree.
  7. If you opt to use the Tracker you are ready to go. (give it a few minutes to be updated for this month). 
  8. If not using the Tracker, Add the URL/Webpage Address of the profile(s) used to create and improve the new profile(s) under your Answer here when a profile is created.
  9. All profiles created and improved need to be from the Category:Needs Profiles Created to count for the challenges. 

The Monthly Challenge runs from midnight the first day of your month and ends at 11:59 the last day of the month, your time.

Ask any questions you have here in the thread.

I would like to give this a shot, sign me up. Have never used a tracker before but I suppose I can figure it out?
by Jane Peppler G2G6 Mach 2 (23.9k points)
Welcome Jane! Just go here and as people add new profiles according to our instructions above and on our website, they are listed in order of additions they have made on the tracker.

Hi Dorothy, i'm sorry, that made no sense to me at all. I did a trial profile, I fixed this guy: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Sprinkle-1985

I removed the flag at the top of his profile but I don't see any way to get myself, or his profile, into this page which you pointed me to: https://wikitree.sdms.si/Challenges/IntegratorsChallenge/20220301/User.htm

Please explain again? I don't want to give up so soon.
I wrote the wrong response so trying to start again.... But first thanks for trying to figure this out. Here goes my  explaination:

On any challenge, usually you have to pick which one you want before saving the profile you want to be added to the challenge. After further looking at your work you did add a family member but not sure why when you saved the new person a selection list wasn't given. Sometimes it gives more then one challenge like sourcing or whatever. Anyway, don't save until you select the project you want it to be connected to. Does that make sense??

If not please go to our project page and contact one of our leaders, they may be able to explain it better. We try to explain as much as we can in the introduction but  sometimes it goes by trial and error.
I did not just add one family member. I added both parents, then went up another couple generations and connected to the big tree. But oh well.
See if this makes more sense.

1. Create a profile from Needs Profiles Created.

2. Save the profile.

3. Before doing anything else, scroll to the very top of the page.  In the big green box at the very top their is a black "button" that says "Challenge Tracker."  Click that.  (Note that if you try to edit profile instead, the challenge tracker disappears until the next save.  You can copy the profile ID.)

4. Check Integrator Challenge and from the right side click 2nd choice from the bottom.  Add the ID of the profile you created.
