Early Scandinavia Project have tried to gather up some of the early profiles with "junk and utter total absolute garbage" that fits within the project.
Some of those early profiles most likely is a remain from WikiTrees early days when profiles for "persons" from the Norse sagas was created.
What should be done with profiles that are from legends/sagas that should be considered, more or less, fictional??
An example would be this profile, https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Av_Vanaheim-1, the wife of a man who was lured by a dwarf and dissappeared into a stone. The saga is written about 1225, and is more or less the only "source" there is.
If profiles like this do not belong on WT, how do we decide what is historical and what is fictional profiles? All are not as easy as this example.
I have long wished for some form of "quarantine" for early profiles that should be validated before being part of WT.
Edited to add: Profiles like this should really have no dates at all since we have no clue when they would have lived. Unfortunately, we can not save a profile without a date of birth or death and they generate a lot of errors before someone has the time to go through the whole family tree until somewhat historical figures appear and then guess backwards how long "a generation" would have been.
They will permanently be unconnected to the large tree and if they will never be part of someones family tree, should they really be represented by a profile on WT?
