Challenge of the Week: Improve Star Profiles

+5 votes
521 views

Hi WikiTreers,

imageWe have been developing a way to identify the most-visited profiles on WikiTree. These profiles have an outsized influence on how our tree is perceived by non-members and how well our profiles rank in Google search results. Improving them will help all our profiles be visited more often. (For more explanation, see this post.) 

Aleš has prepared a report of likely errors in these "star profiles."  Click here for the list.

Can you help improve them?

The member who has reviewed the most suggestions in the list by 11:59pm EDT on Sunday night will get the Winner badge and the bragging rights. But in this challenge, even more than usual, our entire community will win.

If you're participating, please post here to let us know. It's nice to cheer each other on. Or post if you have any questions about how to participate.

Thanks for helping!

PS If you want to chat or coordinate what you are working on with others, in addition to this G2G post there is a handy spreadsheet courtesy of Steven Tibbetts.

 Aleš  Thanks looks great thank you. Some time in the future, could we get this by Project/Country. Or can we run that in Wikitree+?

Richard what exactly do you mean? to get 5 stars suggestion for each project or to get a 5 stars profile list for each project?

Both of this can be done on WT+

Profiles: https://wikitree.sdms.si/default.htm?report=srch1&Query=5stars+WikiTree-11&MaxProfiles=500&SortOrder=Default&PageSize=10

Suggestions: https://wikitree.sdms.si/default.htm?report=err6&Query=5stars+WikiTree_11+&MaxErrors=1000&

I would like to try. My first challenge!

Peter Marion Cowen whose profile is a bit more complicated than I'm usually clean. It had two suggestions:

1. 811 cleaning profile after merge which I added standard headers.

2. 867 Too many Inline citations - left comment asking if they wanted assistance.
