Going away for the summer

+9 votes
Hello fellow Genealogist,

I will be going away for the summer and I won't be able to get to Wikitree. Way in the boondock and no internet. If someone tries to get in touch with me for a merge or something and I don't answer. What will be the consequences?

12 lashes with a wet noodle? I'm pretty sure you can easily take the summer off and enjoy yourself.

Get away and enjoy yourself. We will still be here when you get back.
oh I will let my husband know regarding the lashes, lol, he might like it. LOL

I don't know what the consequences would be but maybe this template will avoid the issue entirely. I found it not long after I started on WikiTree. Since I like to take long road trips without internet access, I made a note of it.

  • {{Template:Absent|Start Date|Comment}}
    • Example: {{Template:Absent|1 Sep 2014|On sabbatical for about 2 months}}

It was recommended that you add the template to your profile with appropriate qualifiers. Then people will be able to determine why you're not responding.

If someone requests a merge and you or another of the managers do not respond, it will be automatically approved in 30 days, and may be completed by the original merge proposer or another Wikitreer.
