That moment when you realize ... (Data Error 825) ...

+9 votes

...  ~340 out of ~580 errors in a century period for a single issue were all generated by the same person ... who does not appear to be importing via Gedcom ... and who has over 30,000 contributions. 

(And, my suggestions report of ~150 issues across ~700 adopted profiles unrelated to me was an issue for someone recently ... smiley )

Yes, I've contacted the PM. (Left a message on the bulletin board for one of their profiles asking them to check their Suggestions Report.) May follow up on their personal profile or with private message in due time if I remember. (And my adoptees have ~80 suggestions now.)


Carry on! We all have a generous amount of "volunteer security"!

Just to clarify, are you talking about issues with separator lines?

answered by Greg Slade G2G6 Pilot (182k points)
Yes. The ones I saw caused the profile to not display various lines of text, etc.

Separator lines are a pet peeve of mine. We're not supposed to use them in categories, but I keep tripping over categories with multiple separator lines.

If I adopt a profile, stripping out the separator lines is one of the things I'll do when cleaning things up.

When it comes to separator lines, I have two rules:

  1. Only use separator lines when you really, really need to.
  2. You never need to use separator lines.
