Can more information be added to the error reports?

I am working on the data base error project and selected Data Error 106: Duplicates between global tree and unconnected.  I found many "duplicates" where a merge had been either rejected, proposed (in process) or postponed.  It would help to have the status of these shown on the exception list.  In which case I would avoid them.  I doubt all of these mergers were started since the last error report was run,

Additionally, I've found MANY [parent] too young or not born yet, when in fact no [parent] is listed.

Or am I reading it in error?
all the parent too young or not born yet that I have seen have been correct..the parent was too young or not born yet.
Different error codes are assigned to various potential errors. A weekly summary for all error codes generated and a link to it is provided  at

If a profile has multiple errors, it is my understand that each similar error will be grouped as one but different errors for the same profile will appear in the error category.
It should be without False errors. Last week I corrected the calculations to be very exact so there shouldn't be any false errors. You should check recent changes on both profiles, since someone could correct it since monday. Otherwise give me profileID, so I can check it.
Here is an example - a rejected match between James-5165 and James-6896 with a reject date of January 22, 2015. Now I can not  see who or why this was rejected.  How much clearer does it need to be?  One of these profile was added via a Gedcom import.  What should those working on the db_error project do in case like this - click remove the reject?  Have to assume the 2 profile managers have already been in communication - otherwise why would there be a reject on the match.

Project managers can't force the merge.  I would prefer to ignore it as an exception and gather the low hanging fruit. Unless someone can give me an alternative that will make my time more productive.
I don't know about errors, but Virginia James Davis' two profiles should/must be merged. No REJECT about it. They're open profiles, any Genealogist can merge them. Just reverse the Reject and propose a Merge.

When its corrected could it be removed from the list?  AND is there a place we can access it besides the Wiki Feed email?

  1. When its corrected could it be removed from the list?
    Use temp hide then it will be hided and next time database is dumped it will not appear again as its fixed
  2. AND is there a place we can access it besides the Wiki Feed email?
    1. You have a list based on your watch list
    2. You can add yourself a template to a profile {{db_errors}}
    3. You have on a profiles a menu option Error Report - see below screen dump ==> you get Jester-173
    4. You have search pages
      1. wikitree/ShowErrors.htm

Menu option
