Project:Profile Improvement

Welcome to the Profile Improvement Project Teams

The Profile Improvement Project's mission is to ensure profiles of ancestors across the one shared tree are improved. Profiles not cared for by Profile Managers or Projects often need some attention. That's where we come in. Working together, we can help more profiles shine.
Profile Improvement Project members will work in four Teams: the Maintenance Category Team, the Unknowns Team, the Voyage Team, and the Biography Team. Please read the descriptions and visit the pages, then choose one or more to join.
  • The Maintenance Category Team will review profiles currently in a top level maintenance category to determine whether they can be moved to a Project category or to a location category of the same type.
  • The Unknowns Team will be working to improve the integrity of WikiTree by identifying and updating profiles without valid names.
  • The Voyage Team will be working with WikiTreers who would like to learn to demonstrate the skills needed to improve profiles to their most complete state using the community developed Guidelines.
  • The Biography Team will be working on improving biographies to a specific standard using the Project's profile standards as laid out in the three level rubric. The maintenance categories included in this team will be Closed Account profiles, Star profiles, Global Family Reunion profiles, Long Biography profiles, and profiles Lacking Inline Citations.
The three levels for the Biography Team will be:
  • Level 1 - These profiles will be chosen by PIP members from their own Watchlist (and whatever else you find) and will be worked to at least the specifications of Level 1 of the Profile Standards. The goal is to improve these profiles to the highest level that can be achieved.
  • Level 2 - Profiles from Closed Accounts and profiles identified as needing help by having the maintenance categories of Long Profiles and Profiles Lacking Inline Citations.
  • Level 3 - Global Family Reunion Profiles and Star Profiles These profiles will be worked on by those Profile Improvement Project (PIP) Team members who have completed the Voyage.
