Note: several of the teams have Lizzie as the manager. She mentioned on Discord the other day that is too much and that Steve got carried away on giving her assignments. I can understand that as she is good.

Status Reports on Team Goals:

Is it important to have a reports on the status of the various team goals. Clicking on the team links on the Wales Project page reveals some teams do not have stated goals and some have goals but not update or status reports.

More work, but should there be a single page for this information on all the teams? Or, just on the individual team pages?

(BTW – I quickly added status reports on the Categories Team page so that I could write this.)

Wales, Counties Team:

Not sure about any progress. Their has been some discussion on Discord indicating they are waiting on the Categories Proposal approval. Not sure how that is an across the board deterrent.

The section titled “Reworking of County Page.” Really don’t understand this. There are not plans to merge or change the names of existing counties vis a vie historic counties.

Wales, Managed Profiles Team:

There is a red link titled “Wales Project Profile Standards.” It goes to the standard WikiTree profile creation page with the quoted title filled in. There are no “standards” stated.

Further down is another link with a red underline “Find them here.” It goes to the same link as above. Don’t know the purpose.

Below that is a link titled “PPP and managed by the Wales Project.” There is nothing on the linked page.

Wales – Profile Improvements Team:

Lizzie is shown as the Profile manager, but there is no Team Leader. There are team members. The sub-teams are not populated. Maria is listed on some of them.

The GEDCOM Team gets my vote. That is one of the biggest data quality problems in WikiTree.

Topics Team:

Okay Rich, this one is yours. It is a good example of why we need to recruit some help. See below.

Cymru Welsh Royals ---:

Uh oh, I am a coordinator on this one thanks to Doug Straiton. I have little expertise here. My main contribution is to stay out of the way and let Vic, Liz and Jack work with this.


This page is sort of a dumping ground. The actual history was something I was experimenting with before the revamp of the Wales Project began.

The list of counties and cities along with the map were on the Wales Project page before. That list needs to be somewhere else. The label “History” does not lead someone to find the list of counties, etc.


Possibly this page could use some better formatting? The stickers section needs to be updated

Wales Project Member List/Badge Report:

What is the purpose(s) of the Wales Project Member List/Badge Report. The list is just people who have asked to receive the badge and may be doing something on the Wales Project, mostly on profiles.

We could use some members to help with some of the work being done, and will be done, on the Wales Project. I have not seem where there is an opportunity, or encouragement, for them to join one of our teams.

Could a questionnaire be devised that would solicit that kind of interest from the list? Is that a good idea?

Our coordinators and team leaders would have to be ready to move forward with their projects and to provide some level of training.

Here is what our members are working on:

Next subject is the link on the Wales Project page titled “Here is what our members are working on.”

Again, what is the purpose? It does not readily say what the person has done. I didn’t see a way to isolate the list onto a specific member.

How can it be used?

At the bottom the page when I bring it up are 3 links – “A”, “Awbrey” and “Stuart Awbrey.” These links are not labelled as to their use.
