I think it's fun to check my connection to each new featured Profile of the Week, but I was pretty unsettled today when I saw that I am supposedly related to John Paul Jones through his son, Moses Wheeler Jones, whose profile is unsourced. Even worse, when I clicked on Moses' mother--Keziah Wheeler Jones, supposedly John Paul Jones' wife--her profile is not only empty, it has a long (sourced!) note from August 2016 which indicates John Paul Jones had no wife or children.
I don't know how the Profile of the Week gets selected (is it nominated by Leaders? Or a committee? Or just one person gets to pick?), but I would hope whoever is responsible for the final selection would at least check the immediate family members to make sure no one is dubious or unsourced, since that is how all the connections are made. And if the point of Profile of the Week is to feature a good biography, then I would also hope that a biography which has no mention of a connected wife and son wouldn't normally be held up as an example that we should all emulate.
I don't think I'm the only person who cares about Profile of the Week--it's featured on the homepage and at the bottom of all connected profiles, after all--so I hope I'm not out of line expressing my disappointment here. (And a heads-up to anyone else checking their connections to John Paul Jones--your connection is probably through that unsourced, dubious line.)
P. S. John Paul Jones' only other connection to the tree that I can see is his uncle Hugh Paul, whose son fortunately had numerous descendants, so even if the mystery wife and son got disconnected, JPJ would still have that one line to the GFT.
Edited to Add: I seem to remember in the old days that the featured Profile was more of a "Collaborative Profile of the Week," with the intention being to improve the profile. If that's the case here, then I apologize for misunderstanding and thinking that this was a "featured" profile meant to show off what a good profile looks like. I don't see the word "collaborative" being used for profiles of the week anymore, so that's why I'm confused, haha.
Update: They've been removed! :)
