REPEAT to Tech Team: missing contribs for Feb 2016, Mar 2016, and part of Apr 2016 [closed]

+4 votes

This is a re-post of a previous request to the Tech Team on June 11th.

Folks, there's a big gap in the list of my contributions.  None shown for February, March, and the first ten days of April.  

It is quite unlikely that I did nothing on WikiTree for 2-1/2 months.  A technical hiccup?  Would you please track down my missing contributions and fix the gap?  I WANT THE BADGES I'VE EARNED!!!

(BTW, other WTers have made similar reports of missing contribs.  A systemic issue??)

Adding and editing categories do not show up on your contributions page.  They are counted towards badges.  

I have no idea how to link to g2g conversations but there was one in May and another in August of 2014.

Maureen, I'm not referring to categories.  My contributions were dozens (hundreds?) of new profiles, and thousands of edits.

Hi Juli,

Can you find any specific examples of missing contributions? That would help me investigate. Maybe you know which profiles you were working on? The first thing I will check is if your contributions appear in the change history for those profiles.

From my first posting about this problem on June 11: I paged "through my entire list of contributions.  I found a big gap. [which was confirmed by T Cassidy] According to the list, I made no contributions between February 1 and April 10, 2016."

Chris, that's zero contributions for all of Feb, all of March, and a third of April.

Yes, I can tell you EXACTLY which profiles i was working on during that time: ALL OF THEM.

I don't know what WT considers to be a "contribution", but surely creating a node is one!  Do you have a way of seeing the creation-date of a profile?  If so, sort my watchlist by creation-date.  Were any of them created during that 70-day span?

None of the profiles in your Watchlist have an edit date between February 1st and April 8.

The profile edited on April 8 is one you are on the Trusted List for but it was edited by someone else.  

The next edit was April 11, which is a profile you created,  which is consistent with when your contributions started up again.
