If there are 2000 active members and 1000 participate, if each one can do say 50 errors (that takes me about an hour) that is 50,000 errors fixed.
If can get more that is great. I think there are people who will want to help if we can make it easy for them.
Sometimes the IT side can be very intimidating to some people who are not IT comfortable / proficient. I think of myself more as dangerous than proficient!
Anyway, it is ok if a mistake gets made, we have data doctors on call to help you fix it. Kind of theme... you are not alone out there ...
I really see this is both a teaching opportunity and a team building exercise that helps draw the community closer together.
I used to teach adults how to use company proprietary software. These were highly intelligent project managers but not IT experts and some were very unsure of themselves in the beginning. So we spent time demystifying the IT so it became another tool they were comfortable using. For me the IT side of WikiTree is a great tool and like any tool you may need some very basic language instruction. Not all WikiTreers are going to know how to code. I sure don't. But that does not stop me from data entry or running the error report and trying to fix errors listed or from learning. Heck, if I don't make at least one mistake every day, I have not learned something that day... that is my motto and I live by that. Mistakes are ok if you learn from them and they are not mistakes that hurt someone.
