I'm looking for the link to have a profile reviewed for PPP, please.

Thanks.

The Managed Profile Request form would be best, whether or not the profile is already a managed profile. See the next-to-last tab on the project page at Project: US Southern Colonies - it links to https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:US_Southern_Colonies_Managed_Profile_Requests

Hey leaders! The project needs a Vision! Currently, the project page only talks of the project goal, which seems to describe the scope of people covered a bit narrower than "settlers, officials, and investors", which the project also covers:
The goal of the US Southern Colonies Project is to work on profiles of those born or settled in the colonies of Maryland, Virginia, the Carolinas and Georgia prior to 1776. It is our aim to thoroughly research the genealogy of these profiles, cite reliable sources, write well-crafted biographies, and connect them to the global tree where possible.

So, what is our vision? (Or maybe we should rephrase the lines describing roles that mention vision?)

Cheers, Liz

The vision of the Southern Colonies Project is to produce well written, reliably sourced, and accurately documented genealogies (profiles and lineages) of Pre-1776 American colonial settlers that fall within the scope of the project.

so all that's needed is to change "aim" to "vision" in the goal statement and we're covered?

That would work. But you may want to see if anyone else has an thoughts on this

What about this:

The vision of the US Southern Colonies is to develop and improve both the profile pages, space pages and research the early Southern Coloniists and settlers—who arrived from 1607 to 1776 in the land which would become Maryland, Virginia, the Carolinas, and Georgia. {MR]

I like it! the 1607 date to me is problematic, since ships sailed before then, meaning investors and officials were involved before then.... Slightly edited:

The vision of the US Southern Colonies Project is to develop and improve the profile pages, space pages and research concerning those who established the first English settlement at Jamestown on through the settlement and development of colonial Maryland, Virginia, the Carolinas, and Georgia.

team member section has a typo... "goals of their time" should be "goals of their team"
