Biography update

Biography is now part of weekly dump, so biography errors are up to date each week.

Previous news

Added errors 568 Wikidata - Unconnected branches to global tree and 569 Wikidata - Unconnected orphans to global tree

Connectors requested to have a list of unconnected notables. Since link to Wikidata automatically means person is notable, I added this two errors.

New errors 7x5 Wrong character in ... and 609 Wrong character in ... location

This are mainly imported errors that were already present in the program that created GEDCOM. I don't think it is GEDCOM import problem. I added 3 French letters and 1 Norwegian discussed previous month. I will remove those from 6x1 error. It is checked only for lowercase, so checks for uppercase needs to be added. If you find those, correct it and provide me profileID, I will get necessary info from changes. Added a few more characters.

Opened profiles

Last monday 10000 profiles pre 1810 were opened. So there are a lot of errors, that can now be corrected.

Help pages

I wrote all help pages.

New errors 822 Heading doesn't end with =, 823 Heading doesn't start with =, 824 Heading different number of = and 825 Use separator line - - - -

Added a few errors to further validate captions.

New Error 831 831 Multiple duplicated lines

This error is added if whole line is repeated in biography. Line must be at least 40 letters long to be checked. Number of all repeated lines must be more than 10 to be an error. There are also some texts I excluded from checking (Lines beginning with :: Place:, :: Relationship to, Detail:(No detail, and Citation provides evidence for). I can add more if you think it is needed. In future we might make this rules more strict. I excluded profiles with error 811.

Updated 6x1 Wrong word in x location

I added Age, Aged, Alive, HTTP and HTTPS as forbidden words. Unknown is also still checked with spelling variations. If you notice any other wrong words in Location field, let me know.

New 6x8 Misspelled country

I am checking for spelling of list of known countries. Country is entered as last word or words in location field. I prepared a list back in april, to identify location to a country. There are local and english version of a country. I added also some common variations like USA, United stated, United states of America, I also added some cities or regions without the country like Amsterdam, Derbyshire, Connecticut. When correcting those, you can of course also add the country. Some disambiguous misspelling will have two errors Like austraia could be Australia or Austria. List contains cca 450 names. If you find any errors in report, let me know. I expect there are some. I didn't expect that many errors, but here they are.
