Updated a few Separators errors

I added ? and numbers to errors, since you can't save profile with number in these fields.

AutoCorrect implemented

Latest addition to correcting errors. With changes to MergeEdit page (WikitreeX) https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/347756/improvements-merge-edit-page-importing-information-wikitree we are now able to automate corections, where I will see it useful.

We will start with UTF errors, since they have clear correction. Later other corrections will be added. So errors 609. 639. 515, 525, 535, 545, 555, 565, 585 and 595 (Marriage location and LNAB are excluded, since automated edits don't work for them) can be corrected by by two clicks. They are also corrected all at once for profile being corrected.

How does process work: After you click Correct button, MergeEdit page opens with prefilled data, that needs to be changed. Those fields are already selected to be used. You must review them, you can also correct any field and bio as you see fit. Description of Edit action is also already filled. When you are satisfied with edits, press Correct button and changes will be saved.

If a profile was already edited since last dump you get red notification box when MergeEdit page opens. Probably autocorrection on the profile was already done or some other edit occurred on the profile. You can continue with the edit, but be extra careful of fields, that you are changing. You can also chose not to correct the profile at this time and do try it again next week with fresh data, if the error still exists.

If no changes were made to the profile Correct button is hidden.

When saving changes, profile is checked for some errors and must be corrected before saving.

For now Autocorrect is enabled only in prepared error lists. Later it will be added also to errors from WikiTree+.

Since this is all new, be alert to any wrong behavior, check profile after edit, change logs for actual changes,...

Also don't be too quick with edits. You can get automatically locked out as a spammer.

New error 566 Wikidata - Possible mother

This possible parent are derived from WikiData data. I am using mother relation from Wikidata and if mother has WikitreeID on wikidata it should be also connected as mother on WikiTree. If it is not, it is reported as this error and they should be connected on WikiTree. There are some exceptions where there is adoption in play or if profiles are not linked correctly to Wikidata.

New error 565 Wikidata - Possible duplicate by mother

This possible duplicates are derived from WikiData data. I am using mother relation from Wikidata and if mother has WikitreeID on wikidata it should be the same as mother on WikiTree. If it is not, it is reported as this error and this mothers are probably duplicated profiles on WikiTree. There are some exceptions where there is adoption in play or if profiles are not linked correctly to Wikidata. It is possible that also relatives are duplicated, so examine also them. In Info column is written WikiTreeID of the child being checked.

New error 564 Wikidata - Possible father

This possible parent are derived from WikiData data. I am using father relation from Wikidata and if father has WikitreeID on wikidata it should be also connected as father on WikiTree.

Update to 901, 902

Info column: Size of biography.

Updated error 418 Partner is also a sibling

Removed duplicates from this error, so each marriage is reported only once.

New error 570-590 FindAGrave errors

This is first group of errors connected to FindAGrave linking.

  • 571 FindAGrave - Link without Grave ID: Lists all profiles that quote Findagrave, but don't have actual link to the profile on FindAGrave.
  • 586 FindAGrave - Link to merged Grave ID: profile on FindAGrave, that is linked to was merged on FindAGrave.
  • 587 FindAGrave - Link to non existing Grave ID: profile on FindAGrave, that is linked to doesn't exist.

New error 418 Partner is also a sibling

This error finds all profiles where spouse is also a sibling.

New error 113 Duplicate in relatives

This error finds all profiles where one person appears in 2 or more relations. It analyses parents, children and spouses. In info column there are relations to a duplicate person.

Error list size

I reduced page size of error lists. Now it lists 1000 errors per page instead of 2000. This way pages will load faster.
