Interest for genealogy started in 2015. I started with my tree in various programs and websites. Best one that I found was MyHeritage, but my tree quickly expanded beyond free hosting. So I continued my search and found the WikiTree. I registered on 29 Jun 2015 and transferred part of my tree to here,

Then I played with API and noticed, that I often forget to enter gender, locations,... So I wrote the program to search for errors on my tree. After I corrected all my mistakes, I asked myself if others are doing the same mistakes. So in april 2016 I asked for access to the database dump, and I couldn't believe, that others made even more mistakes than I did. So shortly after, I prepared the first error reports and Data Doctors project started.

In July 2016 I was asked to become the Leader and in September that year I also became the Team member. Since then a lot of things were done, mostly documented in G2G.

Hi Ales, will this work to prevent FAG errors from being generated for a relatives FAG link on a profile? I have been using it during Spring Clean-A-Thon: Find A Grave: Memorial #1234

this links would be used by errors program ignoring other links to FAG on this profile.

Hi, I got this you need to read it this is affecting everyone. Hi, Linda.

I will have more comments after the Clean-A-Thon has completed but here is one.

I was working away on 863 errors when I got a pop-up preventing me from logging the error fix--a pop-up from Ales. It said, in essence, that I was spending too long at the computer and needed to take a break and stretch my legs. I wasn't able to log the fix I had just done.

I would wager that most of us (all of us?) here are adults. While we may need some support with syntax and with correcting errors, I don't need a paternalistic "eye in the sky" telling me when to take a break. I carved out time for the CAT and have a pretty good understanding of my limits for being seated at the computer. I also work very quickly while still double-checking my accuracy.

That "grade-school teacher" intervention didn't sit well and actually served to push me away. No one likes that sort of needless correction, even as a "gentle reminder."

Evidently, this is a concern the team is monitoring. I notice that prizes (tee shirts) are given out every four hours rather than at the end for most errors fixed. I'm competitive am not motivated to go to any length to win. Maybe some do and spend hours (I got a good night's sleep last night), but really, it is up to them how they use their hours.

Best regards, and good luck with CAT.

Thank you for all you do for WikiTree.

The importance of data validation is very significant. Parsing free form text is not simple.
