Re: Abused and Used: Public Trees vs. Private Trees

Classification: Query
I'm one of those who have no interest in pure genealogy. I want a tree of my family. I am doing this for myself and my family. If I am 75% correct then I am much farther ahead than before I started. Because of this I do two things with my trees.

1. I make most of my trees private because I don't want others complaining because my trees have errors. Of course they do. This is expected and does not bother me a bit.

2. I place the word "Sandbox" on any tree I make public. In the description I tell people who find errors to ask to become an editor and fix the errors. I will make anyone an editor in my Sandbox. Complainers who are not interested in fixing my Sandbox are pains in the butt and probably should seek out some type of mental health professional.
