Clicking on "the Complete Collection" link makes Youtube say "Oops, there are invalid parameters."

Hi, Jelena,

All links work now.  You must have been viewing at the time I was editing and replacing the link.

Please, my apologies if you thought I was saying you did something wrong.  I was trying to say was if you were trying to link at the same time I was editing, you would get that message because I was correcting the link.  I had no intention of blaming you as that was my edit - fixing a broken link.

Check back at your convenience.  Thank you for the notification also.
Thanks. I will check them later

This is a great idea, can't wait to watch the videos and see what they have to show.

Thank you for responding and let us know what you think.  You are our 1st critic!

Great work!  And great voice!

Regrettably, I do have one correction.  In "Tag, You're It", beginning at the 1:00 point and at various times to the end, the term 'backslash' is used when it should be a 'forward slash'.  The slash in "</ref>" is a forward slash (an ascending line), on the same key as the question mark on most keyboards.  The backslash is the descending line usually above the Enter key.  A minor point but could be confusing for many.

Please don't take this as criticism, just an improvement for already great work.  And thank you for it!  (Edit: I forgot to double check the time of 1st backslash)

Thank you for your kind comments; I have passed them on to add to future production notes.  Great catch!

Thank you for responding.
Thank you Sheryl.  Note that Karen has just created another video today with several mentions of 'backslash' - the new "Suggestion 863" video.
Rob - Your comments have been taken to heart.  863, while published today, was already finished before your post...much to my regret.  However, going "forward", the slashes will be correctly identified.  

Thanks for helping to make this venture better.

If the word used was 'slash', that would probably be sufficient, since the 'other one' isn't used as often
You spoke, we listened and the suggestion "How-Tos" correct this.  The remake of Tag-You're It has been published.

Thank you again for this keen observation.

This is wonderful!  Besides the spot on content, I love the intro music tempo as that is the exact pace and feeling I have trying to correct all the mistakes I make! Good on you guys!

Another goal reached; perfect!  That was carefully planned and executed by Karen.  Thank you for commenting it is very appreciated.

Thanks for sharing, Cheryl, and for creating, Karen. These are going to be great for sharing with my local SIG members and new WikiTree project members. One of the first things I suggest for anyone I work with is to review their suggestions reports. Being able to refer them to the videos when they have questions is going to save me an immense amount of typing. My fingers wish me to send a special thank you LOL
answered by Debi Hoag G2G6 Pilot (209k points)
Then we are accomplishing that goal.  These are the first of many, and please be patient and watch for announcements - there will be a video for each group and related individual videos on each suggestion.

As you can imagine, this takes some time, and we are working constantly to produce videos and publish pages.

We appreciate your feedback.

Great job Sheryl. Thank-you for all your efforts, much appreciated.
answered by Rodney Long G2G6 Pilot (211k points)
Please, proper credit for videos goes to Karen Hoy.  I did the posts and Video Collection page, so you are welcome for those.

It is a team effort always, and we are working hard to make suggestion errors more identifiable and easier for you to correct.

Suggestions welcome.

Many thanks, Nicole.  We are working hard to update pages, produce videos and make project improvements to help our Data Doctors in specific and all WT members help clean up the one-world tree.

Please feel free to leave suggestions or ideas in G2G with the tags Data Doctors, suggestions, videos and we will look at them for our future endeavors.

Wonderful ! 

Please add one for 868 Inline citations after <references /> tag. and is there some way all Wikitree profile managers etc can be made aware that these videos are there to help them. Stop the error before is begins.

I started on the Australian 868 list last week (total of 1256) this week it is down to  786 - I'm getting there and hopefully soon only the locked profiles will be left.

The total Wikitree  868 Inline citations after <references /> tag  for the Suggestion Report issued April 14 2019 is 33517

answered ago by Diane Darcy G2G6 Mach 1 (14.9k points)

There will be videos for all suggestions - it is a long term process so please be patient.

The Reference Tags group as seen on the Data Doctors project page are being done first, we just published 861 today and working on the remaining 5.
Hi, Diane

Update- 868 should be out within the next 10-14 days. Thank you for the suggestion.

If you need help, please don't hesitate to post in G2G with the tags data doctor and suggestion 868 or email directly.
868 is in the playlist now.  Enjoy the show!
The 868 video is in the playlist.  Hopefully more of WT members will see these posts and view the videos.

Might help to tell other projects, or PM the PMs of profiles you have worked on to take a look here and hope that helps.
Thanks, I've already directed a few people to the Videos.  Thanks for all your help. I've completed all the Australian 868's except for the locked profiles -well the 868's for this week's Suggestion Report !!

I hope to keep the Australian reference Suggestion Report down to a minimum.
That's great, Diane!  Pass the word!

Okay, I binge watched these and saw some things that I should be doing that I didn't know about or missed when I was reading instructions.  Hopefully from now on this will make me a much better data doctor.  

Great going y'all and I look forward to more of these videos.

We will announce in the project and in G2G as videos are released as well as their partner revised suggestion help pages.

When you bring up the suggestion report that has a video link, Ales has added a link to the video.  Kudos to Ales for adding that.
