This registration thread is now full!  See the current one here.

imageThe goal is to clear out as many database errors as possible. 

It will be going for 72 hours straight, April 22-24. We're including Monday so that those who are busy on the weekend can still participate.

I'd like to participate!!!
Hi! You need to post an answer, not a comment. If you're on my comment (this one), you'll see far right is a clickable "reply". You want to scroll up until you see a clickable "answer" (far right for the main question/post,  "answer" and "comment" - y'all either clicked comment or reply but to register you need to click "answer").

Cheers, Liz

Morning from Canada Eowyn,

I keep receiving the error message "Your WikiTreeID (Henry-2448) is not participating in Clean-A-Thon" as I am fixing my errors.  It looks like it's still allowing me to post the "fix" but thought I had mention this in case my "unofficial" participation causes any problems.

Have a great Source-a-thon!
Hi Beverly!  Please do continue to participate - it's not a problem at all :)
Ha you couldn't get me to stop! well unless of course it would create a bigger problem, then I would LOL  #zeroerrorshenry-2448

Put me on A Rose by Any Other Name. I'd like to work on either Danish profiles, French Canadian profiles or German Roots profiles.  There are tons of false name errors on those profiles that need to be cleaned out as those cultures use multiple given names and don't have a middle name concept.

So is it cool to go ahead and start correcting errors or wait until the 27th?
Don't wait until the 27th! The Clean-a-Thon is the 22nd-24th... ;)
Welcome & Thanks! I'll get you a badge.

Correcting errors is an ongoing effore, so YES, you can correct errors now... but they won't count as having been corrected as part of the Clean-a-Thon (be sure to use the status button - before to check if it's already been corrected & after to note that it has been - since the database list is updated on Mondays, noting status changes is needed to cut back on duplicated efforts).

Cheers, Liz

Yes, I would like to participate. I plan to clean up errors in some profiles that I have adopted related to my Kentucky/North Carolina line, so if there's a team working in Kentucky or North Carolina and nearby states, you can assign me to that one.

Hi Michael! You registered for the Clean-a-Thon already. Maybe I'm sending you the wrong link? Post an answer to https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/373879/join-team-virginia-for-the-spring-clean-a-thon & you'll be all set. (I think my communication skills are weak - you're not the first person to have trouble getting signed up with Team Virginia... Sorry!)

I would love to join in. 

The only snag is I have to work European time on the 22nd, ut outside of that, I'm yours.

I'd most like to work on the pre 1500 team. Failing that, do we have a team for Cornwall yet - we could call it team Kernow...

Welcome & Thanks! I'll get you a badge. See the list of current teams here: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Spring_Clean-a-Thon#Current_Teams ... that's also where you'd find info on how to start a team.
hmmm. nope, can't get you a badge just yet - I don't know your WikiTree ID, since it seems you weren't logged in when you posted your answer? Could you reply to this comment of mine with your WikiTree ID so I can get you badged? Thanks!

Ooooo okies, could I just stick with the pre1500s then please as I am a user with disailities and I'd e afraid to mess up creating a team.

That's weird. I'm so sorry - I'm having all kinds of computer issues this afternoon. If it helps, I'm Laity-45.

 

I have just noticed though, my pre1500 adge doesn't appear to have got activated yet. I resumitted for it at the last event as so long had passed without it showing up. - Does that stop me from joining the pre1500s. I do have pre1700 if that helps?

Thanks for the ID - found you & you have the badge now :D

Yes, you need the pre-1500 badge to work on pre-1500 profiles. The coordinator for pre-1500 applications is really good - if she received your application, you should have heard from her within a couple of days. I'll check into it & get back to you privately.

Were any other teams of interest? https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Spring_Clean-a-Thon#Current_Teams

Hey Liz,

Thanks so much for coming back to me. That would be awesome if you don't mind checking. - I'm guessing I must keep on doing it wrong (this site is a great concept, but it's not the greatest for accessibility with a brain injury sometimes).

Hey Lance -

Just saw you started Team Cobweb Catchers. That's great!

I was going to add it to the main [Spring Clean-a-Thon page] but someone beat me to it.

Thanks double!!
