Error reports for One-Name surname studies

Like many I've just become aware of the error searching and correction project - an excellent idea.

The report for my own direct line was easy to find and do, and I've found the link to obtain the report for those profiles in my watchlist (and I'm working my way through them). What I'd like is to be able to search for is errors in profiles of people with the surnames in my one-name study. I'm probably not the only one-namer who would like to be able to do this.

Is this a possibility?

Good point.  I have a ONS.  Thanks for raising the question.
Me too - I've got a ONS for a YDNA study.

You can already search by location.

Also searching by LNAB is possible, but not advertised, since there can be a lot of results. On page http://www.sdms.si:92/wikitree/ShowErrors.htm enter just lastname for WikiTreeID without the number.

Other searches will be added as needed.

Thanks for this, but maybe there is a glitsch in the system? If I just put in a surname with no number then it responds with:

WikiTree ID not found: kingman

Same for any of my ONS names.
 
Sorry about that. It worked initially, but I changed it later, when I added linking with userID. I will prepare the function to search by name in a while.

Now it works.

 On page http://www.sdms.si:92/wikitree/ShowErrors.htm  I added 3rd search form.

Still seeing the old form.
Hit refresh (F5)
That's excellent. Thanks very much.

Aleš Trtnik Love it!! Thank you!
Derrick Watson Thank you for raising the question!

Mr Advanced WikiTree Research Database Error Department is there a reason you use Post and not Get in the forms?

It would be good to bookmark a search or share it?

No special reason except it keeps away webcrawlers. You can actually use get command with parameters
Save search form localy and change post to get.
