Sorry guys I did not hold my team very well, I think only 330 got STATUS for the clean-a-thon.  the ones I did in  the down times are not there..oh well.. Hope we did ok anyway..Carole
Is it over? I thought it was over at midnight eastern time.
Oh well maybe not..  My eyes are shot..can not tell the diff between a 6 or 8  and doing all the 1700-1800 of my family names is getting to me.. and they got married after death,  that is the tricky one?? I corrected alot of those...LOL  or give birth after she was gone  is another one..Let me know how we did please... I just can not do any more.XOXO
Sounds like a very special family! Are you sure they are from this world???
Carole- You did not let us down at all. Your total was 398 which is really good. If you ever find yourself wanting to bio some people feel free to raid my tree. I've kept putting off the newspaper articles I have saved to my laptop and the few mentions in books on here for long enough. ;D

John- You rocked this! You were in the Top Ten with 1,690.
We all did great. I understand over 80 thousand profiles were improved. Next time with the same team we will do even better, now that we know a little about what we're doing.
A big shout out to team Tidying Tornadoes!
I actually still have the results page up so I can say that the grand total was 80,757. The total really started to jump when Ales found and fixed the fact the site was only allowing about 1,500 errors corrected an hour. Next time I don't doubt we will do better. Even this time we did good. We were #9. Go Tornadoes!
cool, thanks.  and thank you TEAM  we did do great.  If the roll'n wheel hadn't got us slowed to snail pace we could have probably doubled.. and I have to tell you guy I need help in finding the error list that you used. I could only find ones that were LOCKED and got impatient and just did my own family line to the 11th generation... boring!!! same names X after X.. It was fun and gr8 to get to know you..all  Cuz' Carole
I have a question for the Tidying Tornados 2017 September Source-a-Thon.

What are the Midwest states that you cover?

Hi Ruth, from what I understand when are doing Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio and South Dakota. Here's our source-a-thon page if you want to check it out https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Team_Tornadoes

Hi Tornadoes!  Sadly I can't join y'all until Monday, but I'll bet cheering from the sidelines.  In the meantime, I've been working on all the errors in my ancestors and their sidelines.

Hi fellow Tornadoes,

I'm so excited to be apart of this team. I found it funny that we got our name the same day Wisconsin had its statewide tornado drill.

I tend to go from branch to branch at times but lately I've been working on the Killips line and trying to connect my possible cousin from Australia back to me through our one common Frank family from Germany.

For this Clean-A-Thon though I'll focus on helping us out by cleaning up some Wisconsin errors.

Well, hate to say it but I have been cleaning my "house"  first... Man, I had no idea.  But now I think I have everythings  matched to f-a-g... But usually you can find me on the Unsourced list.. for Missouri, Ohio, Colorado, California.  And then mostly I am working my SPACE  27th Missouri Mounted Infantry..  I was wondering if you want us to just jump in or let all know where we are going?  so we don't all do the same state?

I looked at the 188654 list that is on our free space  and the first one... love her name    Elizabeth Fullalove

And I must add a 'funny'  the first time I saw what team I was on... I thought hmmmmmmmm why are we using Tidying  Tomatoes...the rn looks like m...LOL

I have been working on my own list a bit, too, Carole. It all helps! It doesn't matter where you work as long as you're correcting errors :-)
Love Tidying Tomatoes.  I read stuff like that all the time!
My first thought when I saw our name was "I love it." I liked that it just happened to coincide with the day Wisconsin was having its statewide tornado drill. When I saw our logo I got so excited I wanted the clean-a-thon to start right away.

I just had an awesome clean up experience. I was just able to label Winifred Rooker, Rooker-164, a supercentenarian! I found a true Wisconsinite who lived to be 110. Once this is done I am so going to learn more about her.

That's cool,  Amanda! I love that you're going back to go above more than just the error :-)

Hello Tornados! How we all doing so far. I'm ready to get started. Where do we keep track of our accomplishments. I thought I had it all together but I quest I don't.
by John Noel G2G6 Pilot (711k points)
Hi John, you don't have to worry about recording all the errors you fix. It's already being tracked for us.
Thanks Amanda, I did find where I can check my work. Only problem it only shows that I repaired only 1 profile. I just don't want our team to lose out on the count. GO TEAM! ....... RAH RAH RAH SIS BOOM BAH!
I'm working today too! I have the whole house to myself. Nice and quiet here. I'm knocking it out! Go team!
I think there's a slight delay,  I think,  and make sure you're using the status button to show what you did or the system doesn't count it.
Hello Abby, I have been using the status buttton & I still have just one. I even back out and tried again, with no luck. I should have 13 repaired.
That is weird that it isn't counting any of yours. I would ask either ask Eowyn on the question post on here or wait till the next scheduled hangout (in about 11/2hrs) and ask then. I'm going to finally force myself to get some rest. I'm getting close to have been up for 24 hrs. I'll see you all later.
It still shows I repaired just 1 profile. Something is wrong! I'm just going to continue on.
John, there's been some backup on the servers. Go post here: https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/380897/do-you-have-clean-a-thon-questions

and see if Ales can figure out what's up.
I'm done for now, I can't even get the Status to work. The errors Report has to many errors in its program!!!!! I'm going back to sourcing.

I also did 43 or more for the team. They are not showing up on the counted list.
Thanks Abby, Ales fixed it up. I was entering the wrong profile number, when I should of been entering my profile number.
I'm roll'n roll'n roll'n ..rawhide... Stuck again :(  guess I will join John in sourcing prairie...LOL
Lol =D

Well I finally managed to wake up, don't know what was going on there. I have found a playlist on Spotify called Energizing Classics that looks promising and the first 2 songs have been. I've got my Pepsi and Jelly Beans so now it's time for me to go back to work and catch up with you Carole. =)
Sorry guys, this old woman is beat!!!  Supper time here on the prairie of Color-ado  feed the chickens and sheep and of course my Aussies  See ya on the flip side  dawn.XOXO
Love Aussies Carole. We've had four. Great dogs and smart. The wife keeps looking at the mini Aussies, but we just sod our house with land. And as you know Aussies need land to run. We live in town now and want to travel. We do have cats and that's hard enough.

Whoa! I just found this page! (Sunday, 23rd aabout 6:45 EDT). This weekend turned out to be a bad one for me to spend much computer time, but I've done some work on missing genders and duplicate siblings. (Sending lots of messages to managers to add gender. Who would omit this?!) Will be back on tomorrow - I'm retired.
