I suspect this latest dip may be seasonal.

Actually I think its a result of the new GDPR laws - people no longer like adding living people. Such as me.

Living people can be added, but if noone else can see them, then what is the point?

Good news is the consistent long-term upward trend. The latest dip doesn't look like GDPR to me, since there were similar dips in prior years. Not sure it's seasonal either, though, because the dips don't seem to happen at the same time each year.

 I'll blame it on sun spots. smiley

I missed my 1000 last month because I had to back off a little and read more help pages (Sometimes I just read to see what’s there!). Plus, lots of stuff going on here at home. Back on track now, I hope.

I did have more than enough profiles to create and improve in the first year I was on wikitree, but now that most of my tree is on Wikitree, there is not much else for me to do. And As I said before, I cannot do much in the way of Notable profiles - unless they have died.

I personally do find the GDPR restrictive in that I can no longer start up a Notable living person, but I know I cannot do anything about that - for now.

The last 1000 badge I received was in March 2018 - but the one before that was way back in July 2017.

I never have any trouble getting the 100 badge every month. In fact, right now, I am sitting on 99 contributions exactly. LOL
