England Project: Managed Profiles Team Homepage

Terms of Reference

This team is a subgroup of the England Project.

We do these things:

  • Improve England Project Managed profiles where necessary with a well written biography including sources, inline references and relevant images. (See the Profile Standards tab). This is the main workload for the team.

We also:

  • Assess profiles of people born in England (or people contributing significantly to English history) for the need to make them PPP or Managed. (See the tab at the top of the page for more details). This includes maintaining a database of those profiles, showing which need work on their profile, and which are complete and in the general maintenance stage.
  • Liaise with the existing PM
  • Lead discussion about disputed or controversial aspects of the profile on G2G, a profile free space set up for the purpose or in the comments space on the profile.
  • Keep the PPP and PMP spreadsheet up to date, so each member knows where each profile is in the process and who is doing what.
  • Work on the England Project data errors for the PPP and PMP profiles, especially in regards to errors in PPP and PMP status.

One team member may choose to do the whole task for a managed profile. More complicated and contentious profiles, or profiles involving a very tangled family may involve a group working together.

To join the Managed Profiles Team you must be a badged England Project member who:

  • has completed the Orphan Trail, or can otherwise demonstrate a high standard of biography writing, accurate sourcing, analysis of conflicting information, and collaboration with the other members of the Trusted List for that profile and the wider Wiki Tree membership.
  • is actively involved with at least one England Project team after completing the Orphan Trail
  • is in good standing with the England Project.

We expect from our team members:

  • commitment to completing an allocated task
  • profiles to be written according to the England Project Profile Writing Standards
  • collaborative working with other Wikitree members both inside and outside of the England Project
  • an expectation that team members will accept constructive feedback on their work.

Generally this is a team for the more experienced members of the England Project, but the Team coordinators are very happy to discuss membership with anyone who meets the criteria listed above.

We communicate via

  • the England Project Discord channel for on the fly discussion about work in progress
  • the England Project Google group for general England Project topics
  • G2G to discuss specific profiles and include other interested parties from the wider Wikitree community

A Checklist for work on Managed Profiles

A checklist has been developed for working on Managed Profiles to give us a bit of structure. Feel free to send your suggestions for improvements to the list to the team coordinators and leaders.

Error List for the England Project PPP and PMP profiles

What do these numbers mean? The following numbers are what we are aiming for:
1. Lots - these are our England Project badged PPP profiles
3. Zero
4. Zero
5. Zero
7. Zero
8. These are ALL the PPPs in Wikitree with no project management - There are no English ones in this list, so the EP cannot reduce this further.
9. Lots. Our England Project managed profiles which are badged, but do not need PPP
11. Zero
12. Zero
13. Zero
15. Trusted List only. We can have a few of these where the main PM is another Project.

A monthly clean is carried out by the Managed Profiles team.
