Will you use the two new Integrator Tags?

Hello G2G and all WikiTreer's

The Integrator's project would like to introduce you to two new G2G tags.

Integrators_Sources and Integrators_Resources

One of the primary functions of the Integrator Project is to move the wonderful information generated on G2G to WikiTree where is can help enrich and promote the growth of our tree.  All too often, great information is shared on G2G but that information is not making it onto WikiTree.

Our goal with the Integrators_Sources tag will be to tag G2G questions and discussions where great source information has been provided.  This will result in a pool of questions that can be searched and evaluated by volunteers for inclusion on the appropriate profiles on WikiTree.  Those volunteers that love to attach sources to profiles can easily search the G2G posts with the Integrator_Sources tag and then take the time to update the profile in question, Thus improving our tree.

Ideally, the person asking the question would do this, however we have seen many great answers with great source information never used to update a profile.  

Once a volunteer has updated a profile with the new information they can then update the question with a comment that the profile has been updated.

Our second tag, Integrators_Resources will work a bit differently.  Many questions either provide or elicit responses with great resources for genealogists.  By tagging these questions with the Integrator_Resources tag, anyone can peruse the pool of questions generated by this tag an learn of new genealogical resources to help them in their search.  We will also have volunteers who will then compile that information onto a free space page for Genealogical Resources.

Jump right in and help improve the functionality of G2G by using these tags when you see a question with great source information or providing a great genealogical resource.

Thank you

The Integrator's Project.

Michael, could you provide an example for each that illustrates how this would look? Thanks.
I have posted a few websites providing free access to digitized church records for various countries to G2G in the past. Would you suggest going back through my past contributions and tag those?
Helmut, I would not make a big project out of it, but if you feel they are particularly useful, please do so.  Thank you.
Jillaine, I have started tagging questions so you can look at what is being tagged by following the tag to the G2G questions.  FYI, we have ideas for other tags but have not yet decided to implement them.  We want to see how these go.  So you will see the Integrator_sources tag has questions with profiles that have not been created.  Our plan is to have these profiles tagged, created and then add the sources but for now I am looking for profiles that have already been created but have not had the sources that were provided added to the profile.
Just tagged a few I keep handy for myself.

I think this is a great idea! I have found some answers in g2g that I have bookmarked so I could return for the resource link.

Since reading this, I am more inclined to post resource links etc., when responding to a question. Now I need to remember to use the tags correctly.

Thanks Nancy, looking forward to what resources you have found.
Hi Michael,

I will look through questions/answers I have saved from Wikitree, and get them to you. (There are only two maybe three)

I tried to add the two tags so I could follow them but it doesn't seem to work. I've checked spelling of tags etc., to no avail.  Is it because I don't add a comment about why I'm following or interested in the tag. I really would like to follow these tags and use them as well.

Nancy, I had to disapear for the last 6 months.  Did you get the answers you were seeking?
Hi Michael, I never did end up following the tags. I think that I have to put a comment about the tag to add it. At any rate, I added it to my To Do List because I believe it's a great idea.
