Send a Message to the Profile Manager

It is not necessary to do all the work yourself. Profile managers share the responsibility. Sometime a simple message to the Profile Manage can be enough to encourage them to do some work on a profile. Many Profile Manages do not have much knowledge of how wikitree works and what standards are expected. Some do not realise that there is something wrong with a profile, and even if they do they may not know how to correct it. This is especially true of new members. We were all new once and we all made mistakes.

As a Data Doctor you are if an ideal position to help to educate other wikitree members. You can leave polite messages for Profile Managers telling them that something needs doing, or even telling them how to do what is needed.

Always remember that our community's Honor Code is about courtesy. Make an extra effort to sound polite and friendly and remember that when mistakes are made we assume that they're unintentional. Always try and add a :), so the PM knows you are not being anything but nice and helpful :)

Note: One thing to watch for is the date the profile was created. If it is recent be gentle and offer guidance and point them in the direction of the G2G forum to ask questions in the community.

Message Samples

Below are some examples of messages you can leave on a profile. The first one is a basic message that could be used or adapted to suit the Suggestion. Please leave a message if there is a Profile Manager it helps avoid upsetting PM and creating a conflict.

If you had a favorite message that you leave, please share it below.
