I believe I have learned more by working with this project than I would have by myself.

With the weekly challenges, one concentrates on one particular suggestion which gives one the opportunity to truly figure out what to look for when making corrections. By the end of the week, one has the knowledge and confidence to make a huge difference towards the health of our shared tree.

Try it, you will love it.
Just so you know, Data Doctors is like a year round Clean-a-Thon. Just like Sourcerers is like a year long Source-a-Thon.
Lost access to the spreadsheet on google. Can anyone remedy that?

Thanks

Terry

Can anyone tell me why I get this message 

Your WikiTreeID does not exist. Status is updated, but correct it next time. (Wight - 531)

You shouldn't add spaces in Wight-531

I have made mistakes on gender when entering persons. Many have been "corrected" by data doctors trying to help. However seldom do the people doing the "fixing" bother to edit the biography to reflect the gender correction.

I would rather have them left for me to correct if the job is done incompletely. It would be great if the "data doctors" received proper training prior to being set loose.
To keep the data doctors away, you can go to the drop down, Suggestions, and correct all the mistakes in your tree yourself.
Absolutely agree with Terry McClintock.
So, how are Data Doctors different from Sourcing?
When I am making these corrections I avoid tampering with the bio, especially if it appears to be thoughtfully done.  It's one thing to change a gender in a box. It's another to edit someone's work.
The bio should be checked before making a gender change or anything else, since there can be notes to indicate why a gender is set one way.  If no notes, the bio should still be checked when gender is changed, so it doesn’t say ‘he’ or ‘she’ which is now opposite of gender.

Hi, you are new to WikiTree. You should first get to know how WikiTree works, before you start correcting errors on profiles not related to you. You can still correct suggestions in your family.

Ask for the badge again in a month.
