Thanks for the 100 contribution badge. This is my first month on Wikitree, and it has been a fun and interesting ride!

Blessings, Ramona Johnson Radsick

Hello Admin Wikitree.

In the spirit of the Wikitree honor code of “mutual trust and a common understanding of how the community works”, I feel compelled to ask: is badge-awarding finalization a manual process?

The counter that tracks each individual contribution we’ve made appears to be automatic, as is, apparently, the contribution-counter reset at the end of each month. Therefore if the contribution-count algorithm trusts its own totals and can reset them, it stands to reason that the badges that simply mark the number of contributions would be automatic. But I can also understand certain needs for human-eyes verification as well.

Yet as more contributions are made to the tree, it stands to reason than more people randomly googling their ancestors will be drawn to Wikitree, as I was, and gradually a certain percentage of those people will join and begin making their own contributions, accelerating the contribution rate. Eventually, the processes related to tracking and incentivizing said contributions, if it continues to be done manually, will become completely untenable, as this project is 100% volunteer, if i understand correctly.

Is there an information page explaining how the nuts and bolts of tracking these statistics works, and whether there is there is an explicit reason for keeping the incentivizing badge-award process a manual one?

Thank you

Hello there,

Our recent system upgrade seems to have created a bug in our badge awarding system. We're working on it, and you should have badges soon.

Hello Admin Wiki Tree. May I join the other members who are asking about their January 2024 100 badge. I know that I compiled over 200 new profiles. Is there a bug in the system?

Cheers.

Hello,

I am waiting for the January 100 badge. Is there a reason why many people are also waiting for the same badge? I know that I make well over 100 contributions a month, and although that may not seem very important to some, but when I make 500 contributions a month, which there is no badge, the 100 badge is appreciated at the very least. Thank Tou

Hi. As of Friday afternoon (Dec 29) my Badges page was still showing that I had made over 1,000 contributions in December, and that I would be receiving a “Club 1,000” badge for December 2023.

But today, although the individual contributions still all appear in my Contributions Feed, the count now shows an overall total of only 966. The new count on my Badges page (as expected) has been reset for January, but no new Badge for December has appeared.

So what’s going on with my contributions count and the apparent discrepancy between my Contributions page total and the total that had been displayed in my Badges page for December? Were some removed (does that ever even happen)? Was my Badges page count of December contributions miscalculated?

Even if some kind of reassessment occurred that reduced my contribution count, I would at minimum expect to have received a “Club 100” badge for December 2023.

Thanks for looking into this

Hi Lawrence,

You can add that template to your own profile, but it's discouraged in regard to adding it to other profiles.

It's NOT midnight. WHY am I not able to add to my October contributions?

No badge for the month of October awarded and it is now showing zero for November but it is only 7:46 pm on 31 October 2023 for me. Rude.

Hello Cynthia,

Please see this G2G post explaining WikiTree time (UTC) and how to correct it so it shows correctly on your personal contributions: https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/1531666/whats-with-the-clock-used-in-reporting-our-contributions.
