How to thank WikiTree Members for their hard work

Thanking members can be as easy as clicking the "thank you" link on a list of someone's contributions.

However, if you want to go the extra mile, you can leave a message for them on their profile, a profile they've created, or in g2g. As much as possible we would like these messages to be organic rather than using a cookie cutter template. We recognize it takes more time to create a different message for each person tailored to them specifically, but the end result is worth it! If it helps, you can create a basic template message for the area you like to appreciate, but change it up a little bit for each person based on their specific contributions.

Do you need to thank members on behalf of the Appreciation Team?
This is not a requirement. Some like to do this and others don't. It's up to your preference.

Is there a Google Group for Appreciation?

What about Discord?

Hi Stuart, yes we do have a Google group. Dieter will get you set up for that. We don't have a Discord channel because our members are too busy appreciating :-) Emma
How will I know when Dieter has setup the Google Group for me?
