Hi John

Just wondering why you deleted the spouse of Emma King - Joshua Edwards please?

Hi John,

The Australia Project leadership team are carrying out our annual check-in to see how you are going in the project. We'd really like to thank you for all your work on Australian profiles over the past year! We think we've made great progress in 2020/21 with your assistance.

Please could you reply to this message, to let us know if you would like to stay on in the project and if you are happy with your current role and team involvement. If you would like to do something additional or different, take a look on the Australia Project page to see what other options there are.

It would also be great to get any feedback or suggestions that you have to improve the project.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind Regards

Margaret Haining Membership Coordinator

Hi John,

The Australia Project leadership team are carrying out a check-in to see how you are going in the project and especially to thank you for all your work on Australian profiles on WikiTree. We really value your participation.

Please could you get back to me by private message to let me know if you are happy with your current role and team involvement within the project or if you would like to do something additional or different. Currently you are on the Free Settlers and Born in the Colony teams. If you would like a change, you can check on the Australia Project page to see what other options there are.

It would also be great to hear any feedback and any suggestions that you have to improve the project. On a practical note, if you are a member of the google group, are you receiving messages ok? Also do you have Australia as one of the tags you are following on the G2G? Don't forget to add it in if you don't have that tag yet.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind Regards

Margaret Haining Membership Coordinator

Thanks for the Jargon definitions, John. So I am no longer an ignorant Kiwi. LOL. And yes I am a very happy Kiwi, because I finally found Ruth's husband and could add him to the family.

Cheers. Robynne

Thanks John, yes the VIC BDM have updated their website recently. I just wish the WA Dotag would get their act together and do an overhaul on their website, one of the worst for Australia.

Hi John

You've added many categories for Australia which don't follow WikiTree's rules for naming categories, eg, because WikiTree uses Title Case for naming categories, Category: Local government areas of Western Australia should be Category: Local Government Areas of Western Australia.

Have you read Help:Category FAQ? Or Help:Category Names, where it says "If you want to help us create and maintain the category hierarchy, please join our Categorization Project"?

Project:Categorization#Process_and_Procedures says "Everyone is encouraged to create new categories. The one caveat is that if a structure has not been discussed, then it should be BEFORE new categories are created. ... Discussion can be started in the Google email group or on G2G."


Congratulations John on reaching 10,000 on Wkitree, look forward to seeing more of your profiles in the future too!
