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.

May I join the Data Doctors?  A few times each week, for the past several weeks, I've been clearing (mostly) simpler errors in the "suggestions for relatives" list.  I've mainly worked on orphaned profiles; when there is a profile manager, I'm treading very carefully, trying to follow protocol and not ruffle feathers.  With time and experience, I hope to be able to work on more challenging errors.   ~ Karen

I'm not on a team, though I'd like to be a data doctor and receive the badge. Do I need to choose a team?

Amy, You are new to this site. To be a data doctor, you will need a lot of experience to do it correctly. I suggest you first learn how things work on wikitree and then ask again in a month.
