WeRelate talk:Pando for genealogy

In the software world, Pando is a p2p file sharing product, so the "Pando for genealogy" reference is pretty confusing. It wasn't until I read the Wikipedia article that I understood it was attempting to be some kind of play on its "treeness."


Not stated clearly [13 February 2014]

It is not stated clearly with "unified family tree"/pando reference that the goal is a definitive, fully and accurately sourced, encyclopedia with one article per person and one article per family (unlike the more database systems where there is huge unmanaged redundancy between users who have uploaded gedcoms).--Artefacts 00:18, 7 February 2014 (UTC)

How could we state this more clearly? Please feel free to make it clearer. Thank you.--Dallan 22:36, 13 February 2014 (UTC)
Totally did not have a solution and just wrote something on the talk in frustration because I couldn't get the idea across to relatives, but you know, paraphrasing the proposed WeRelate meta wiki thing would be a good start: "The aim is to provide free, open access to genealogical data and the evidence that supports that data. Any deceased person can have an entry (and only one) with the entry linked to entries of known relatives."--Artefacts 20:23, 15 February 2014 (UTC)
