Like I said, I promise it will be fun...oy Julie!
Oh good!  Here's something to ponder til the 21st:  I'm finding it more and more difficult to find profiles to source (how does Hans do it?).  We need a way to filter the Unsourced from the Unsourceable- the locked profiles, the pre-1000 AD profiles, the "Unknown, son of Unknown, from an unknown place" profiles, the "John Smith, date and place unknown" profiles, etc.  I get tired of hitting that " next 200" button.

There's a line in every month's Sourcerer's Challenge instructions that goes:

"The tally is of profiles improved, not sources added. That said, if you can add a number of sources to a profile, all the better. Maybe we'll switch things up and see how many sources added y'all can do one month."

Any plans to actually do this?  "Sourcerer's Challenge: The Quality-Over-Quantity Edition"!  :-D
