Where are New York unsourced profiles hiding?

+3 votes
I have worked up to the letter D surnames in the New York unsourced profiles.  This morning I went to my bookmarked page, that worked every morning up until today, to add a few profiles while my coffee kicks in.  My
computer says the page doesn't exist.  I know my 73 profiles made a very small dent in the 40,000+ profiles that were there but someone has done a whale of a job to wipe the rest out over night!!!!  Any idea where they might be hiding or I owe someone a huge thank you and I will start on another states unsourced names.  Florida sounds warm for the winter project.

Wondering if some links have been chopped in the maintenance categories. The route I usually take into the Northumberland unsourced categories does not seem to be there any more.

The Unsourced Profile Categories are being/have been renamed to include a " , " after the Country/State/Province etc

So for the one you are looking for it would now be "New York, Unsourced Profiles"

Is this what you're looking for? https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:DBE_Unsourced#New_York

(Way to go on all the unsourced profiles you're fixing! )

That gives the numbers in each time and place but the page that I used also gave you a choice of each letter surname and sent you directly to the list of profiles starting with that letter, very convenient.

They were renamed. The last couple of days there was a warning that Editbot would update the name.

I had to update my link for Maine unsourced this morning.

How did you do that?  Every time editbot strikes I have problems for my
computer class instructor to solve.  Too bad the library is closed for Columbus day.  I don't remember any warnings listed.  Where were they?

Well, heck. No wonder I couldn't even find the unsourced category. It isn't even hooked to maintenance categories anymore.

Now I have to fix all the links on my spreadsheet. Just great!!!!!!

unsourced profiles is rehooked under maintenance category for those that ran up the category tree to get to it.

What does that even mean?? Is there a link or should I waste time looking for it?  https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:England_Unsourced_Profiles  This page does not exist.

If you used the links on the spreadsheet I was waiting for all the links to get done and then forgot. just add a comma immediately after the country and it will work.
