Trying to access my old tree [23 April 2022]

Hey Dallan - I've been trying to access my original tree under "TheLiederAcademy" but that email is long gone. Is there a way I can get that tree back? Also - how do you build a tree of WeRelate? I have a lot of my pictures here and I want to see them.

I hope you are well - Tell Solveig I said hi!

User:Theliederacademy? --Jrich 15:55, 9 April 2022 (UTC)

Hi Jennifer, nice to hear from you again! It looks like the User:Theliederacademy is using the same email as User:Jenlieder, so just log into Theliederacademy and click on "Email password". That will send you a new password for that account.
If you want to build a tree, click on "MyTrees" in the "MyRelate" menu at the top of the page, then click on "Create a new tree", then navigate to the pages you want to add to that tree, Edit them, and click on the tree you want to add them to at the bottom of the page.
Solveig says hi back :-)--Dallan 01:03, 24 April 2022 (UTC)

Delete My Tree [16 June 2022]

Dallan, My tree(s) have so many errors and inconsistencies that I have discovered. I want to delete my tree and my account, and I am unable to do that because of the "watchers". What good is a tree with all the incorrect data? Please help me to delete my account.--Mars 17:39, 12 June 2022 (UTC)

Hi, it appears that a number of other people have also been contributing to the pages that you originally uploaded. Even pages that haven't also been edited by others would be missed if I were to delete the pages that you originally uploaded. This page reports that several dozen people you originally uploaded are part of families that others have also contributed to, and those families would have missing family members.
We have a new data quality page, that reports probable errors in people's trees, but it reports 0 errors for your tree. No one's genealogy is perfect, but it appears to me that yours is pretty good!
If you'd still to delete your tree, let me know if there are particular lines that you'd like me to delete. I can delete pages that you're unhappy with so long as they don't impact families that others are also working on.--Dallan 20:35, 16 June 2022 (UTC)

Wikipedia routine [30 August 2022]

Hi Dallan - The history [1] of Template:Wp-President of the United States suggests that the Wikipedia routine has not run since 2019. Is that accurate? I'm trying to remember if the overall schedule had officially changed, but everywhere I look, it still says it should run 1-2x/year. Would it be possible to run it soon? Thank you, --cos1776 19:28, 28 July 2022 (UTC)

Yes, that's probably true! It's been a long time (way too long) since I've run it. I will run it this weekend.--Dallan 03:20, 2 August 2022 (UTC)
I started the new WP update on Sunday and it finished yesterday.--Dallan 14:43, 20 August 2022 (UTC)
Wow! There must have been a lot to update, since it's been a while. A new user was asking about it, so thank you for running it. --cos1776 23:31, 20 August 2022 (UTC)

Yes, thank you!--Julie Kelts 15:41, 30 August 2022 (UTC)

Place:Wood Hey Laithe, West Riding of Yorkshire, England [18 August 2022]

Hi Dallan I am trying to sort out User:Dsrodgers34's work on Holme, West Riding of Yorkshire, England. One aim is to redirect all the hamlets within the parish of Holme back to the main parish. One place, Mount Farm has already been redirected to Holme, but it is also a "contained place" to Wood Hey Laithe. Now Wood Hey Laithe refuses to be redirected. (I have already made it into a sub-article to Holme.)

Could you please see what you can do to sort out what I think is a very small problem.

I wish I could say that the rest of User:Dsrodgers34's work is a very small problem.

/cheers, Pat (GoldenOldie)--Goldenoldie 12:00, 12 August 2022 (UTC)

I just renamed Mount Farm to Place:Mount Farm, Holme, West Riding of Yorkshire, England and removed it as a contained place from Place:Wood Hey Laithe, West Riding of Yorkshire, England. Does that help?--Dallan 03:04, 16 August 2022 (UTC)

Removal helps. I have discussed Wood Hey Laithe under Holme and added a note re Mount Farm to that discussion. My policy, particularly in the UK, is to remove all places under the level of parish (ancient or civil) and to redirect them to the parish in which they are located. Seems to me that, for our purposes, tiny places that are "located in" minor hamlets are just as unnecessary as a "place" as a street address in a city. Placenames should be reserved for places named in registration documents, i.e., censuses and "bmd" documents provided by religious institutions.

When I redirect a small place into a larger place I use italics to name the smaller place.

Sorry, I am trying to rush and my vocabulary is not keeping up with my thoughts.

Thanks and regards, --Goldenoldie 07:58, 16 August 2022 (UTC)

Makes sense. Thanks for your work on this!--Dallan 01:41, 19 August 2022 (UTC)

James Weir b.1748 [18 January 2023]

Hello Dallan,

Can you tell me who contributed the information for a one James Weir b. 1748 on your WeRelate page? I’d like to contact them.

Thanks George--Sunnyvalley 13:21, 15 January 2023 (UTC)

I put a reply on the user's page. --Jrich 16:25, 15 January 2023 (UTC)
Jrich thank you--Dallan 15:55, 17 January 2023 (UTC)
Happy if it was helpful. --Jrich 06:05, 19 January 2023 (UTC)

Renaming ... [16 March 2024]

Hello ! Why ? ... and this automatic revert of my logic "actualisation" for all communes of this département ? --> Le département des "Basses-Pyrénées" a été renommé officiellement "Pyrénées-Atlantiques" depuis OCTOBRE 1969.

- --Markus3 05:52, 16 March 2024 (UTC)

The same work of actualisation is necessary for "Côtes-du-Nord" --> "Côtes d'Armor" ... depuis Février 1990.
---Markus3 06:00, 16 March 2024 (UTC)

I don't know what the WeRelate Agent is doing, but I will point out that the WeRelate standard for France Place names is that they reflect what was in place in 1965 (see How Places are Organized in Place:France). So Places shouldn't be renamed based on changes after that. Note that the standard for North America is the year 1900.--DataAnalyst 14:15, 16 March 2024 (UTC)

Delete account [23 March 2024]

Please delete my account. I reviewed this and I do not like it as it is unorganized, old, outdated and difficult to use. I will not be using this.--Nanasfamily 00:57, 22 March 2024 (UTC)
