New errors 551 - 562

I started to validate data against Wikidata/Wikipedia. First are gender and date checking.

This errors should be checked carefully. There are 3 possibilities of an error.

  • Wrong link to wikidata. Delete or correct the link on Wikidata. If you don't know how or don't want to edit wikidata, write a post in this G2G post and I will correct it. You can also mark error as false error.
  • Error in wikidata. Mark error as false error.
  • Error in wikitree. Correct data in wikitree and error should be gone on monday.

New error 821 Caption starts with blank

Here is a list of profiles, that have blank in front of the caption and caption is not shown as a caption.

Error 7x3, 7x4

In Info column added information on problematic word used and what to do with it. Now I think it will be clearer what to correct.


Error 7x2

Added checking ignoring space, so 1 33 is also marked as error.

New errors 801 Big profile. 802 Empty profile and 803 Almost empty profile

I added these errors to list profiles just by sizes. 801 are profiles bigger than 200000 letters, 802 are empty profiles, and 803 are very small profiles, less than 50 letters.

Updated error 7X4 Wrong word in name

I added whole group of words to this error. First, second, ... They should be corrected to 1st , 2nd, ... form. I didn't include First wife, Second child, ... I added only those, that also have word Of in name (First Earl of something). Error was discussed here .

New error 811 Uncleaned profile after merge

I added new error, that lists profiles, that weren't cleaned after merge. For now I check only double sources header. 800 errors will be all biography errors.

Changes to search section

On http://wikitree.sdms.si/default.htm I updated Search group. Search was extended to all name fields, so you can now find also all Earl of Erroll texts.

There are added controls to include relatives on result page, Results are shown on multiple pages, and you can control number of items on page and sort order. There are also hyperlinks to the profiles found.

Hi Devorah, hopefully Dawn's answer on your page has helped you see whats happening with the error checker and your grandmothers profile. Which is that Her first name Cecil is usually male so the system is asking you to check her gender and name spelling is right, if yes go to error report and click false error, then the error will go away. If you would like further help with this feel free to messages me and I will help explain it and answer any questions you may have, though I work full time so it won't be a quick response during the day.

I received an error notice and I do not understand it. There is no gender error. It is my beloved grandmother and I have her listed correctly. Please advise. Thank you.
