Welkom by ons Voorjaarse Poets-a-Ton - Welcome to our Spring Clean-a-Thon !

You should work your own errors first....Click here. Put your ID in the "Managed by" field, (exceptions to this are Find a Grave and Wikidata errors on your managed profiles) For those who have not worked with these lists before, this will help you get familiarized.

Werk eers aan jou eie foute ....Klik hier. Sit jou ID in die Managed by veld. (Uitsonderings hierop is Find a Grave en Wikidata foute op die profiele onder jou bestuur.) As jy nog nooit met hierdie lyste gewerk het nie, sal dit jou help om dit onder die knie te kry.

Once you have completed your own managed profiles, then lets get going on the South African Roots project errors (in the managed field add: WikiTree-47) . If the errors are minor things that can be fixed easily fix it, if not, so if profiles are part of for example the Cape of Good Hope or a different Project and really need more research and sources, please just leave a post saying what the error is and that more research is needed or find and post sources for it that show how it can be corrected.

Sodra jy jou eie foute afgehandel het, kan jy begin inklim onder die Suid-Afrikaanse Roots projek se foute (voeg in die Managed by veld by: WikiTree-47). As die fout 'n klein dingetjie is wat jy maklik kan regstel, doen dit. indien nie, of as die profiel deel is van byvoorbeeld die Kaap die Goeie Hoop of 'n ander projek en regtig meer navorsing en bronne nodig het, plaas dan asseblief 'n beriggie op die profiel waarin jy uitwys wat die fout is, of verskaf bronne wat verduidelik hoe dit reggemaak kan word.

Remember to always communicate (use the explain your changes field and add a post) and provide STATUS when you finish correcting an error and look for all the errors when working a profile.

Onthou om altyd te kommunikeer (gebruik die Explain your changes veld en voeg 'n opmerking by) en verskaf STATUS wanneer jy klaar is met die regstel van 'n fout. Soek alle foute wanneer jy 'n profiel deurwerk.

As jy bietjie wil voorberei, gaan na jou eie profiel en laat jou muis hang bo die kissie met jou ID. Beweeg af na Error Report en klik dit. As daar niks is nie, veels geluk. Anders sal jy dalk jou ID 'n klompie kere in die kolom Manager sien. In die kolom Error is daar 'n kort rede vir die fout, an 'n vraagteken. Klik die vraagteken. Dit sal verduidelik hoe om daardie fout reg te maak. Jy kan ook op Link klik om te kyk wat die fout presies is. Moenie dit nou al regmaak nie, dit tel eers vir die Poets-a-ton op 22-24 April.

Hierdie paadjie is goed genoeg om jou eie foute op te spoor. Vir dié van WikiTree-47 sal jy die skakel bo-aan hierdie bladsy moet gebruik. Meer inligting staan op die Poets-a-ton se webblad.

For all profiles managed by projects (for example COGH ones) please only add a post mentioning the error and telling more research is needed, if you would like you can try to find primary sources as well of course, to show if and how the error can be corrected, but these should be added/included (links to + info from the sources) to a post at the profile as well.

Western Red Cedars Thanks you for all your hard work.

It was a fun weekend, see you at the next marathon!

Baie dankie vir elkeen wat deel was van die span. Ons het baie goed gevaar. Top 10 is altyd 'n bonus, maar beter - hulle het in die chats gese as hulle dit volgens lede uitwerk per span is ons eintlik 3de. Louis dankie dat jy ons gelei het. Ek het dit vreeslik geniet. Tot volgende keer!!!! BOKKE BO
Fantasties! Dis goeie nuus, ons het hard gewerk.

Dankie vir so oulike span mense. See you all at the next one, for sure!

We made 10th position and are barely holding on Very well done!☺
posted by Louis Heyman
Puik, ons hou vas aan die elfde posisie en 10de posisie is net so 400 weg. Go Bokke!

We can do it!☺

posted by Louis Heyman
Go Bokke Go !!!

Hardloop Bokke hardloop !!!

Ons is stewig in 12de plek en ek dink 4de op die aangepaste telling. Nog so 'n duisend en ons kan 10 plek behou want die huidige 11de en 12de plekke het min bittereinders. Pragtige werk ☺

We moved into 13th place' Well done keep it up'

Mooi so☺

Good luck everyone and enjoy. ☺

Hi - It is suggested we start with errors in profiles I manage - a lot of those aren't South African - does SA Springboks still get the points for those, or must I work in South African profiles?
posted by Sharon Caldwell
Any and all corrections of suggestions all over WikiTree count
posted by Louis Heyman
And it starts at 2 o'clock out time, right? Another question - if there are errors on project profiles that are obvious typos or coding (i.e. missing citation ending codes etc.) is it OK to just correct those rather than posting in comments (which seems like an unnecessary duplication of work)?
posted by Sharon Caldwell
Hi Sharon, I missed the second part of your question. Try the easy errors, but you have to click on status on the right hand side and complete what you did for each error.
posted by Louis Heyman
Sorry another question - what to do in cases like this? the error is 931 ProjectBox Without Project Account   - must I remove the project box or ask for it to be incorporated in the project, or ignore for now?
posted by Sharon Caldwell
It depends, you need to know what the criteria or scope of the project is, which you will find on the project page, in order to know what to do.
posted by Louis Heyman
I wish you all the best for the Clean-a-Thon.

Have fun!!

The Virginia Spring Cleaners wish you the best in your endeavor to clean Suggestions on our global tree. Thank you SA Springboks for helping improve the health of our tree. We're looking forward to another fun weekend Thon! We'll see you there.
