Challenge of the Week: Improve Star Profiles

+11 votes

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 suggestions 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.

Hey just wondering if like me everyone was running into a lot of profiles that are project protected and or from way back in the 1000s to 800's era so cannot correct or change anything without getting block on data change. Bad thing is some are family of a protected profile that are not dated or sourced.
