Will you join our Data Doctors Challenge this week?
Aleš's "WikiTree+" data analysis has uncovered thousands of profiles with special characters or words in name fields that probably don't belong there. There are parentheses that need to be removed, suffixes that need to be moved to the Suffix field, and much more.
Here is the table of likely problems and issues.
Although the changes might be simple and fast, a thoughtful genealogist like you needs to investigate and make the decision.
After you investigate something, set the status [more info]. That will earn you a point. The member with the most points at 11:59pm EDT on Sunday night will get the badge 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, and it will help us avoid stepping on each others' toes. Also post here if you have any questions about how to participate.
Thanks for helping!

If you checked the data doctor challenge guide you would see that updating the status is what the tracker uses. You already have 32 in the tracker.
