Can't see it...
My question is, do we have to click a counter as in the other 'thons?  Can't see one...
No it should auto track

Are you on Discord?

I have sent a message asking for a review on the tracker numbers as we seem to have lost some points

Can you all let me know off your contribution feed how many you have added

I was at 6, added four more and now I'm reading four.  It's all gone a bit Pete Tong.  Can't see the discord channel for the Strollers either.
Help, I am having trouble connecting through Discord.  It wants me to either set up a server or enter an invite to a server.  The link Janet posted above only takes to a general Discord page.

I’ve added a couple of small gedcom’s since the previous scan-a-thon and have currently held back with the images, saving them for this 2020 event ... looking forward to taking part.

Brilliant thanks for holding back, limit is ten per profile if you lucky enough to have that many.
Registered ... looking forward to the event.

Thanks Janet & Gillian,

 I’m going to be working on two areas I think:  Truebloods: early family photographs to add.  And in the Tudor period the Cromwell, Spencer and Syne families for the Muppets:  Going to add a few portraits, house images there.  Need to do some prep to make a folder of unadded pictures.

Hi Janet and Gillian,

Do the SS Team have a rebel's corner on Discord? laugh

by David Urquhart G2G6 Pilot (121k points)
Hi David, we do!! I'll see if I can add you in.

Sweet !!! angel

I maybe don’t have the same permissions that I used to, or I’ve forgotten how to add you. I’ve asked a couple of people, but you could ask someone to add you too. Hopefully we’ll get you all sorted.

If anyone else would like to join the Discord chat, send me a private message and I’ll try to set you up.
