Hey there Anthony,

Noticed you've created a fair few profiles recently using Template:United States Sticker. Wanted to give you a heads-up that that particular template is meant as the base code, to be called from other templates, such as Template:Ohio Sticker or Template:California Sticker. United States Sticker isn't meant to be called used directly on profiles.

Direct usage of United States Sticker throws background errors on the Data Doctor reports. You can see this week's report here for example:

Best regards, Jeff

Hi from New Zealand, I have just created a profile for Mary Teresa Menzies as she was the wife of a Profile I was working on for the Rayner family here in NZ. It looks as though she made it to one hundred and two years old. Menzies-5867

Hi Donna. I work with Randy Hare on Menzies profiles worldwide for the MINGUS Inc Project. Yes it looks like she reached a great age. I am sure this lady links with a much larger Menzies Tree that we have been updated, so keep an eye on a link to her profile in the future. If you have any queries, I am happy to discuss with you, as I live in South Australia. Regards to you. Patricia Howard Gray Howard-18870

Hi Anthony

I have just created a Menzies profile (needs sticker) but it is likely he could be one of yours but I know nothing of his origins. If you manage to track him, go ahead and suggest a merge if required. Menzies-5854 Cheers

Hi Randy,

On behalf of the England Leaders, I wanted to say a huge thank you for all your contributions towards the project in the past six months as a Team Member for Warwickshire. We've achieved a great deal during this time and we couldn't have done it without you.

Are you happy to stay in your current team and the project as a whole? Are there any other teams you'd like to join? What are we doing well, and what would you like to see us doing differently moving forwards?

Please respond to this message via e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks,

Susie, England Project Leader :-)
