I have a question, (and a suggestion): While I was checking for duplicates for a particular surname (per request of another member for a merge project) I found several "guests" with that surname who joined between 2013 and 2015 before the "new tag requirement" came into affect.
Before, as a greeter, you could post a comment to re-invite them to join and request they post a comment about their genealogist interest, but now if they do not have the new email with current instructions on joining with tag requirements.
I was just wondering since I am aware that there are several more "guests" on various surname lists that have not joined or been confirmed from as far back 2013 etc. What could be done about them. They just sit on the search lists like this we use so often: http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Special:SearchPerson So I posted the question on the Greeter forum. (I was told to post here on G2G as well). A suggestion was submitted in response to my question:
Perhaps Wikitree needs to send out a revised email to all guests from the pre tag days. Any email that bounces should have that profile deleted since the odds are they are not interested or used a fake to sign up while they looked around. (Suggested by Michael Harris).
In my opinion, that was a great idea and that way we can eliminate profiles that will never go anywhere but take up space.. and valuable time of genealogists who are serious about finding ancestors that may be listed on those "Special:search person lists!! "
In summary, is that possible, to send out a revised email to "ALL Guests" from the pre tag days??? Can someone make that happen please and Thank you!!!
