Terms of Reference

The Scotland Project manages profiles of important and historic Scottish people. They may have been born in, lived in, or died in Scotland.

We pay our respects to these important individuals by:

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

We also:

  • Assess profiles of people born in Scotland for the need to make them PPP or Managed. (See Project Managed Profiles). 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 Scotland 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.

Hi Carole,

The 'sticker' you mention on Greer-614, is actually the Scotland Project box. It appears that the profile was project protected a couple of years ago perhaps because of bad merges and mistaken connections. See the G2G post at the time. When a profile is PPP'd it requires a project to manage it. I believe the Scotland project offered to manage only because of the surname, and no proof of origin has been found yet. Further discussion should perhaps be directed to the profile in question, or with a linked G2G post.

Thanks for your question, Carole. To my knowledge, Greer-615 is not a profile managed by the Project.

I just noticed the STICKER on Greer-615 Did you find a source to prove he was born / lived in Scotland? I will reread the profile but I didn't notice
