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.

I tried to answer someone's question about how to print out a family history in book form.

Thank you for all you do for WikiTree.

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

Everyone who commented on the second Data Doctor's post from December 17 onwards is missing a badge. I'm trying to participate in the weekly challenge, but it won't count me as participating because I don't have the badge. Please fix this when you get the chance!

Thank you for correcting the veteran recognition template (I think that's the one you corrected). For the life of me I could not see how it was different from what was on the template page for it - honestly, I STILL don't see the difference! NVM, I looked at the changes page - figures I missed the obivous difference there. Once again, THANK YOU!

Great job Aleš, thank you on your work on reporting for the Thon, and the new Challenges Tracker button is so much simpler and faster running!

Hi! I tested two profiles to see how the Challenges tracker worked - Watkins-313 and Adams-17342. I put the Unsourced template/category back on the profiles, but I couldn't figure out how to clear my comment.

Since they (again/still) have the Unsourced template, will my comment be cleared automatically on Monday?
