Hello, I work on correcting and sourcing Swedish profiles each week, but I do not have a data doctor badge. May I continue to work on the Swedish profiles, but be a part of Data Doctors? If not, I am willing to work on other profiles too. Please let me know. Thank you!

Hi, Missy,

I sent you a private message and working on Swedish profiles would be a great help as a Data Doctor.

Short answer: yes!  There are also other Swedish profiles that you could work on.

Thank you for your interest.  We will get back to you shortly, usually within the week.

Great! I look forward to it. Thank you!

I have been creating and improving profiles since 2015; I believe it would be a good idea to become a Data Doctor.  This way I can learn more about the best ways to improve profiles and become more efficient.

Could someone check the status of my badge? I've been participating for some time and either my badge has rolled off or I never had one. Thank you!
