Managed Profiles Needing Attention
- Did you know the Project’s Managed Profiles Team monitors all edits and comments to project managed profiles? While the team attempts to immediately address issues identified, some issues are too big to resolve quickly. So the team keeps a list of open issues identified during monitoring.
- Each month, the Managed Profiles Team highlights a few profiles from the list needing attention. Project members are invited to review the list, and tackle some of these difficult issues.
- Review the list at US Southern Colonies Managed Profiles Needs_Attention.
Who's Ready for Bingo?
- Friday Night Bingo begins on 9 December - one game at noon Eastern Time (5 pm UCT) and a second game at 6 pm (US EST/11pm UTC), repeated every other Friday (opposite Friday Night Date Night).
First Thon of 2023 is a January Connect-a-Thon
- Mark you calendar for the 13-16 January Connect-A-Thon. Keep an eye on G2G for the registration post: Thon Connect-a-Thon Challenges announcements
