I have been working on the project and have asked for the badge two times.

The way to get a Data Doctors badge is to answer (mind: answer, not comment) the joining thread. The current join thread is here:


The project has only one Leader, Ales, who is the only person who can award these badges. He usually catches up on the thread twice a month.

Looks like the Data_Doctors badge.   Yep, I didn't get mine yet either. Lol laugh  There's a few more people in "related questions" haven't got their badge either.  A lady saying she's worked on the project since October 2016 and no badge.  Oh dear.

I know it is a policy you need to be a wikitree member for at least 1 month and it is either 100 or 1,000 changes. I'm guessing if you go back through the list where you asked, AleŇ° probably explained it.

You asked at first for the connector badge and he said you had the wrong place. Then when you did ask for the data doctor badge he hasn't reviewed it yet. He is a busy guy.

The last time he went through the list was July 2. You asked after that so he will get to you.

There is one for "100" and another for a "1000" yes

Those are monthly badges. We are referring to the Data Doctor badge.

Oh wow, I'm gonna be waiting for years if that's the case. Haha.  I joined the weekly challenge, but lots of profiles that I clicked on had already been done.  Maybe I'm doing it wrong.  I think in about an hour, I managed to do two.  #Girl_Racer_Not.  laugh  I'll probably have another try soon. 

monday or tuesday is when it usually resets. The sooner you start, the less collisions. Also, many of us try to document it on the spreadsheet to cut down on that.


The weekly reset for us Kiwis, is late Tuesday afternoon or evening  ( as we are ahead of the rest of the world down here in little old NZ wink)  - AleŇ° and his servers (where the errors oops 'Suggestions' are processed) are 10 hours behind us

Cool, good to know!  I just uploaded a gedcom so I have a lot of cleaning up to do in my own backyard now.  Those footnotes though, with references to unlinked numbers ... superfluous much! 

So my badge is even further away.  Lol.  Suddenly its all about the badge, I don't even know why, maybe its because we come from a little place Graeme!  When I have a chance, Im going to look at our size in relation to other islands in the Pacific yessmiley

I too have been waiting for a number of weeks for a Sourcerers badge.
by N Gauthier G2G6 Pilot (204k points)
You are awarded the sourcerers badge solely by participating in the sourcerer's sprint or by the monthly sourcerers challenge.

yes I know. I have paricipated in a bunch of Saturday sprints and a couple months of sourcing. This is my second request for the badge.
