Batch has 4 marriage records. Indexer put 10 baptism records in. All had random dates in the 20th century and A & A for given & surnames. A lot of work to try to do badly.
This is a community forum, so I will make use of my right to respond. I don't think it's necessary to report individual cases of sloppy indexing. Return the batch and move on.1
I agree with @A van Helsdingen . I have been working on the Missouri obit project. If I came here to "report" every case where the batches were not correct, it would be 4 or 5 batches a day. This is why we have the Reasons to Reindex batch form in Labs as the avenue for this reporting. As reviewers, it is our job to either correct or return batches. Since some of the indexers didn't seem to understand the intricacies of obit indexing, I am completing the advanced project batches on review so it can move on to another reviewer. Sometimes this means deleting all the current entries, by clicking on No, No Extractable Data and then Yes, in Step 1 and indexing 80-100 records.1
If the entries are entirely random as opposed to mistakes then yes please report these.0
I'll tell you all this for the 14th time. Using the labs to report a badly indexed batch means that you are RETURNING it for RE-INDEXING. I don't use that because I don't return poorly indexed batches. I index them myself. It will have to be indexed by someone and then go to another reviewer. That re-indexer will be me.
And, I only report intentionally bad batches. Poor indexing because of not being able to read cursive or not having read the instructions don't get reported.
Back in the old days, they asked us to report the egregiously bad indexing via email. Now they don't want us to do that. They say that their statistics can identify bad batches but in the case of these malicious ones, they don't know why. The Labs approach is not useful. Reporting them as a question is the only avenue available. FS personnel can see the bad batches, both the original and my corrected version.
Stop worrying about my posts and let FS deal with it.0
