Challenge of the week: Improve orphaned profiles [closed]

+7 votes

Hi WikiTreers,

Will you join our "Data Doctors" Challenge of the week?

Once again, Aleš has come up with something to help us work together on a category of profiles that need our help. This time it's "orphans," i.e. profiles without Profile Managers.

Here is the list of orphaned profiles that could use some TLC.

Will you join us?

Every time you record a status update it will earn you a point. The member with the most points at 11:59pm EDT on Sunday night will get the Winner badge this week and the bragging rights. But we'll all benefit from a neater, cleaner shared tree.

If you're participating, please post here to let us know. It's nice to cheer each other on. Or post if you have any questions about how to participate.

Thanks for helping!

Challenge is active.   spreadsheet link 

All updated and ready to go. Below is a link on the G2G post explaining how to do Data Doctor Challenges with screenshots. 

After getting hit with about 7 requests for access to the spreadsheet, I rechecked the settings. I do apologize but someone switched the settings. It was never the intention to make you register in order to use the spreadsheet as I know many people do not like registering for things if they don't have to.

Using the sheet and tracking what you do is preferred but not mandatory. And registering was only intended for those who like their name displayed and may want to use the chat feature. This has been reset. And if it happens again, feel free to notify me that it won't let you use it without registering.

ok, now it was switched so that people not signed in could view only. Set back to edit and locked the controls so only I can change them.
