This is a list of "issues" I encountered or "questions" I thought of as I was working on that I have not had time to research further. Will circle back around to these as time permits.

Note: Don't consider any answers below as definitive—they just reflect my current understanding.



  • Where do the various elements (e.g. Project Box) go in the profile text?

{{Research Note Boxes}}
{{Project Boxes}}
== Biography ==
{{Project Sticker}}

  • How do non-project members most often first encounter maintenance categories and Projects?


  • Why are location categories added to profiles? Do Project Sticker locations in anyway affect this?
  • How do {{Unsourced|location}} relate to {{US Southern Colonist|location}}? {{Virginia, Unsourced Profiles}} and Project Box and Project Sticker for example?

Research Note Boxes

  • Is there a Family Brick Walls Research Note Box, or just categories?
  • How do {{Unsourced|location}} relate to {{US Southern Colonist|location}}? {{Virginia, Unsourced Profiles}} and Project Box and Project Sticker for example?
  • Confirm {{Unsourced|location}} takes colony like Jamestown or Jamestown Colony.
  • Do Research Note Boxes add a location?

No, but they accept Project names and place the profile under that Project's maintenance category.

Maintenance Categories (by Project Boxes and Stickers)

  • Should US Southern Colonies maintenance categories tables also include other ones like Long Profiles?

Project Boxes

  • Why is the Project (protected) function intermixed with the location categories and maintenance categories from an architectural standpoint?
  • Need to reconfirm the US Southern Colonies Project colony names (e.g. Jamestown vs Jamestowne Colony; Carolina vs Province of Carolina).
  • Do Projects have a technical writer role?
  • Why don't Project Boxes have locations?
  • Is Virginia Project being moved under US Southern Colonies Project?

Project Stickers

  • Who should decide if a Project Sticker is added to a profile?
  • If a profile is not in a Project, should a Project Sticker be used to add a Project maintenance category to the profile?
  • Do Stickers, specifically Project Stickers, add a location category?
  • Is there a limit to the number of profiles with a specific Project Sticker added?


  • Why does WikiTree point to Evidence Explained for format, but then not follow it? What specifically is being pointed to?


  • What can span be used for?
  • See Help:Profile Boxes which includes: Project Boxes, Research Note Boxes, and Stickers.


  • Why does WikiTree+ for US Southern Colonies include pre 1607 date categories?
