News on Database errors project (10 July 2016)

+22 votes

Analysis was done on data from July 10th 2016.

Changes in last week are uncertain due to change in database dump.

Detailed statistics are available on in Statistics section.

Errors are prepared, but still needs some work done. All errors connected to first name needs detailed review, printout of errors needs some adjustments,... It will be done in a few days.

For all, that had problems with firewalls accessing errors, I have good news. I registered DNS so you can access errors. Also links on Wikitree are updated to this name so it no longer works on port 92 but on default www port 80.

Up to date

I believe, all errors are like they were before new dump. Name based errors have minor changes, since now prefix is excluded and nicknames are included.

"This and the Other Last Names field are the only one that can include multiple names. Separate these with commas (e.g. Frank, Frank the Tank)."

The commas are showing up as errors (separators) for nicknames.

What are we supposed to do about multiple nicknames?  They are coming up as errors, but they are just different names separated by commas (as instructed) to indicate all the possible names that were used by the person.


Also, the mutliple nicknames are showing up as "Separators in First Name" error.

Error 512 will be canceled. and replaced by 700 error. 751 allows commas as separators. If there are no objection to 700 errors, I can remove 512.
Not sure why there is still an error for separators in nicknames (751) or other names where commas are allowed to add multiple names.  Will names separated by commas be excluded from error 751?
Aloved separators are .dot ' single quote and  - hyphen.

751 and 791 allows also comma.

Other Separators are reported as an error / + ( ) ? " ...
Sorry, I misread your statement. OK, so commas will not count as errors for nicknames and other last names then.
