Hi you'll Thank you for your participating in the 2018 Team Tennessee Volunteers Clean-a-Thon. I hope you will join me again this fall for the 2019 Team Tennessee source-a-thon and next year for the 2019 Team Tennessee Volunteers Clean-a-Thon. I had fun doing this no matter if I did get stress with my life at home. You did 85 good going maybe this fall will be better for you.

So to get credit for the change, I just need to update the status on the Suggestion page? Is that correct? Yes that is correct.

The way that I understand it, the spreadsheet is just to mark off what section you are working on. So it is literally just filling a cell with a color. Nothing else.

That way everyone knows what everyone is working on and we aren't working on the same error code in the same century.

For me, it makes it easier as I can choose to work on error code 402 from 1800-1899 and know that no one has touched that area yet so we aren't duplicating effort!

Hopefully that reverses some of the scariness?

You can do this but try this that I am putting here and ignore everything else it should work out Everybody I forgot to tell you that along with the spreadsheet also use this also to like we use in Data Doctor challenge use this link (DBE ErrorList TN)

Just concentrate on this and everything will fall in place the spreadsheet was taken from this link (DBE ErrorList TN) so use this link that will be very easy to do. This is where you go to get the names and profile to clean up. You will have to use this link on the Team freespace page to be able for that link to work.

Could all of you put me on your'll trusted list and in a private message I will give you my email address and I think that will solve the problems. Also try to tell me what you don't understand and I will talk you through the misunderstandings you have it shouldn't be that hard. If you just even read the this spreadsheet instructions and use the spread sheet it shouldn't be hard to understand. Just concentrate on the spreadsheet only.Now Everyone needs to go to and also read the instructions to the spread sheet and then pick a color that you want to use when the clean-a-thon starts when you get an error cell done. Done below the list of errors to correct will be all of your names and color in your name with the color you want to use during the clean-a-thon. Here is the links to the Spread sheet and our tab is Team Ten and also here is the link to the instruction to the spreadsheet also. *https://tinyurl.com/TeamTennhttps://prnt.sc/hk72jy -instructions how to use spreadsheet for TeamTenn

Here is one targeted for YOUR tab "Team Ten"


Remember, if you want to use the "live chat" I need to input an email address for you. If you don't see the button, it isn't in Go to the sheet now and make sure your name is on the list on the bottom. Add a color to your name that no one else is using.

Then, on Saturday, when we start, you use the color you have chosen for your name and add it to the box you are currently working on.

If you want to participate in Chat on the sheet itself, send a private message to Steven Tibbetts with your email address.

Here are Steven's directions for the sheet: http://prntscr.com/hk72jy

Every one if that is the problem and that why you want to drop of forget but I thought you'll might want a couple of stickers that said you participated in the clean-a-thon with your name, the Teams name, the year and also how many you did and how much the team did in total.
