Hi Ros, sorry if it took me time to get all the settings correct! Do let me know if you want further relatives to be opened up.

Thanks for your message.  By the way - you still haven't made the England Project co-manager on Robert Falcon Scott's profile.

Hi Ros :)

It's that time of the year again: check-in time! As England Project Leaders, we like to check in with you every six months or so to see how things are progressing. Back in May, we didn't ask for a response due to the rapid emergence of Covid-19 because we understood that people's lives were changing rapidly. While we are still living in a Covid world, we do need to hear back from you this time around.

First of all, how are you doing? What are you currently working on? Are you happy with the team(s) you're in, or would you like to change things up?

Secondly, we're looking for some feedback on the Google Group and our Discord server. Do you use either or both of these? If you don't use either, why not? Do you have any suggestions on how we can improve participation and collaboration, either generally or for you personally?

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Amy, Joan & Lizzie.

Hi Amy

Thanks for the check-in. I am concentrating much more on my own family tree research atm plus English Authors (although I am on its Trusted List, could I be made a co-manager, please?). I would also like to be on the Devon team, if possible.

I use both the Google Group and the Discord server and am happy with both.

posted by Ros Haywood
Hi Ros,

I'll definitely see to it that you are added as co-manager for English Authors and added to the Devon team :) I'm glad to hear you're happy with the Google Group as well as Discord, and thrilled to have you back!

Feel free to get in touch if there's anything you need!

Regards, Amy

Hello Ros

Your England Leaders are completing the six monthly check in with all team members. Thank you for your work on English Profiles and your work as the PC of Topics, the team leader of Authors, and member of the Managed Profiles, Gedcom and Helpdesk teams.

These are unprecedented and difficult times, and we understand as Project Leaders that your situation may have changed somewhat in the last few months. What we are all able to/ wish to contribute on Wikitree has changed. Please let me know if you are happy with your current role and team choice, or if you wish to do something additional or different. Thank you again on behalf of all the Project Leaders for everything you do.

Gosh sorry for the confusion, but yes it is the name Shropshire . forgot there was a county as well. Thank you, now all I have to do is Sticker them all... One Name Study | name=Shropshire

Stay Safe/well Carole

posted by Carole Taylor
Actually, there is more than one thing you have to do. You need to send me an email or a Private Message so I can have your email address and set you as manager of the new Study. Adding a Public Comment like this will not work.

Greetings Ros .. I have been working on the One Name studies .. I have included profiles using the following syntax ... Biography
This profile is part of the Barbeau Name Study.

This adds the category and the information box ...

Category:Barbeau Name Study (with [[ ]] Brackets)


One Name Study|name=Barbeau (with {{ }} Brackets)

Please remind me if this is the correct format ... Thank you .. C'est Bon ..

Yes, you've got it right! :) The sticker has curly brackets, and the category has square brackets.

Thank you, Ros, for taking the time to respond to my plea for help using one of the features of G2G. You took the time to explain why I was having the problem and how to achieve the results I wanted. Now I am inspired to go back and re-read G2G basics. I will probably use it more often now that you helped me to "break the ice."

Do you remember asking this on 2 December in G2G? My reply then was "You have only had your Baraboo Name Study for one day (and, btw, Barbeau is listed as a variant). It would be better if you gave it a month to get settled in with running a Name Study before you start another one."

To which you agreed. I would be grateful if you could wait until at least the New Year; then, please continue with your original request on G2G. Many thanks

Wondered as the Windsor Warriors are not participating if you would like to join the Sandringham Strollers for the Scan-A-Thon on the January 10, at 8 AM (ET) and runs until Monday, January 13, 2020

If you would like to join us please register Here 

Look forward to working with you during this fun event.

Hi Ros,

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 Leader for English Authors, and Team Member for Managed Profiles and GEDcoms. 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 teams 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 :-)

You're a rockstar!! Thank you so much for helping me with my research!

Hello Ros

I have received an email saying that the FLAX name study was active. You asked me to remove it from some of the profiles. Please assist. Also wiki keeps telling me that my aunt, Marcel Flax, should be male. Please help? Thank you

Ros, thank you for each of your more than 1000 contributions to our Shared Tree for the month of August 2019. All of your work makes our Tree all that much better.

Actually, with all that you do, I'd be amazed if you didn't make 1000. You are a special person and superior WikiTreer.
