Is the error finder working properly?

Is the error finder working properly? I have a profile that had several children on it, For one child in the middle of the birth range I'm getting the error that mother is too young or not born.  Her birth date is 1878, child birth is 1905. Mom was 27 yrs old, nothing in error.   There are younger and older children, is there something that shows what triggered the error?

Maybe the child itself is the mother that's too young?

(that is the error is on the child and not on the mother)
Could you please tag the question "db_errors", and give the Wikitree_Id of the profile in error?

I looked at your errors and you are probably talking about Myer-323.

Error Link FullName Rel. Birth Link Name Rel. Birth
305 Mother too young or not born Zimmerman-2455 Matilda Zimmerman Mother guess 1878-00-00 OH, Hamilton Co., Cincinnati Myer-323 Matilda Myer Child guess 1807-00-00 KY, Campbell Co., Newport

If you check her Changes tab, you will see, that you corrected that error on 5. junij 2016. On sunday when database dump is triggered, she was born in 1807 but you corrected that later. Error will disappear on monday, when errors are recalculated.

Hey Doug,

I have had several questions about it in the last little bit - My unknowledgeable guess is that the Forest Elf broke it by posting it in the Newsletter this week. So many Genealogists and an error report, really, what did she think would happen? LOL This in response to it just spinning or throwing out an error message on tying to access it.

I did reduce default generation number after traffic increase, so now it works better. I can occasionally work on data and that could also be a reason for temporary unresponsiveness.
