New badge? Corrections improvement

+11 votes

I would like to see a list to be recalculated each week showing the number of corrections to db_errors achieved by the top twenty. But only the top corrector rewarded with a badge which could move each Monday?

Incentive ?

Perhaps one should not count certain errors.

At least mention Trtnik-2 as WikiTree honorary member ;-) 

Um? Is this sort of incentive  really needed ? Some errors take a lot more effort to change than others. I've corrected some where a date was in the location box or there were separators in the name. These don't take long but I've worked on one today that has taken  several hours of work to change a born after mother's death with a correct year of baptism.

The person that made corrections cannot be tracked from my side. Maybe inside WikiTree, But that is for Chris to decide.

And it might be difficult to distinguish edits made related to db errors from changes made for other purposes.
