I believe gutshall-15 to be a deceased member. There is messaging that says there is no email address, & there has been no activity since 2011. She has some privacy locked profiles on dead people that cannot be sourced, or connected with. HELP

Hello Debra,

The UPM process is the best option in this case. LouAnn appears to still be living.

Cheers, The WikiTree Team

I was making changes on Saturday April 30, and was over 900 with all of a sudden the contribution count went to zero and then to May. I still had 4 hours to go to get to 1000! I'm going to have to watch GMT time in the future!

Wow! You made my morning! Coffee, toast and suddenly my name appeared in today's WikiFeed!

I am so honored. And very, very gratified to be so close to William Wallace! LOL Growing up we kids were given a legacy of Scottish history.. Couldn't be in better company than Wm. Wallace and WikiTree! Thank you! Margaret

Thank you! It is going to take a bit to figure all this out but you put me on the right track!

Admin just did a merge for me that I wasn't able to do. The reason was that it was not possible to close an account with the instructions provided. One is to simply remove the email address. This fails, however. I'm thinking it may be a technical issue with the new draft/final operation. When deleting the email address it goes to draft but won't go to final without returning the email address as it was.

Thanks, Douglas. We'll look into updating the Help page instructions.
posted by Admin WikiTree
Hi Douglas,

Can you send us a picture or link where you saw instructions to remove the email? We need to make sure we're updating the correct pages.

Cheers, The WikiTree Team

Thank you so much for updating the 100 to 1000. I understand the system doesn't necessarily add it up, the way it does under our own contributions. But thank you again for taking the time to do that.

It has been a pleasure to work with other WikiTreeers and to have achieved this status. I hope that I can continue to contribute as much, and as relevant information, as I am able to research and glean.

To the Profile managers: Admin WikiTree, I learned a lot of new ideas since I started, cleaning up my source with more precision and to the point, and checking everything twice, birth dates, death dates, found in the church records, and the other books I have. Thank you once again.

Having received the following ridiculous, convoluted explanation which is completely not understandable and am feeling as if Admin made this change for counting contributions simply to keep themselves entertained because they have nothing else to do!!! ;-) A Contribution is a Contribution and should be counted as ONE CONTRIBUTION,,, there is NO EARTHLY, LOGICAL reason for the change in the counting method you have decided upon!!! You have made the Contribution Badges a BAD JOKE!!!!! Pathetic!!!! """ Hello there,

Due to changes we made in relationship tracking in contributions and changes feeds, the contributions counts for the month looked higher than they actually were. Here's the explanation given by Chris Whitten from when he announced the change here: Regarding contributions, I oversimplified a bit. Here's more explanation (mostly because Dennis Barton asked in a comment above).

Counts will be a little different going forward, but not retroactively. In a few cases we will be only counting one contribution when we used to count two, because now we are identifying the duplicate history item. In one-to-one relationship changes we only want to count one contribution. But if you are changing multiple relationships at once, there could be multiple contributions counted. In my example where there would be 12 history items, six would be counted -- one for each pair.

Sorry for the confusion!Cheers,The WikiTree Team"

A lot of my contributions were taken away this month. Very disappointing to not be recognized for my hard work. I had way over a thousand, and only received credit for 887. To not get anymore recognition than if I had only 100 contributions is terrible. I am going to lower my contributions.
posted by Nancy (Pumroy) Jackson
Same here. I went from 1000+ to 708. The number of contributions shown in the "My WikiTree -> Badges" should be the one used for the badge. If there is a calculation change, it should be reflected everywhere.
posted by PB Côté
Same for me. Showed 1015 8 hours ago but now claims only 628 for May.

Possibly a clue: I've seen edits to "no profile manager" profiles not fully accounted before. Are some edits being dropped unintentionally?

Thanks so much for the badge Admins. Didn't realise I'd even made it that far.

Thanks Admin, I had no idea I had done over 200 contributions in April, Wikitree has kept me sane in this Coronavirus time. I've actually had time to get "stuck into it" and have enjoyed every moment. It is a great site! I am finding new options on the drop downs as I have the time to explore. Thanks again.
I didn't get a badge for April? I see how many more needed for May but I have just discovered it and now I don't know if I just missed April or if they aren't rewarded yet?

I LOVE these badges. Thank you.

Hi Cynthia,

Looking at the number of contributions for April, it doesn't look like you made it to 100. Good luck with the May badge!

Cheers, Abby The WikiTree Team
