Karen Moore Waugh said: I have proof that a woman born 1832-34 that YOUR files claims is a sister to my GGF is NOT. All the assertions that she is are based on ONE census where the actual sister Sarah Jane is listed as Jane. But I have a will, a legal document sworn under oath in court by people who knew all the parties, that Sarah Jane, not Jane is the daughter. WHY can't I post this information on your records of Jane? Is it good business sense to be selling and promoting error? Please, please provide a place for notations of proofs correcting the PRF of people who base an entire line on one census taker's information.0

You can make sure the correct data is in the FS-Family Tree and enter your evidence data and citation. You can use the "discussion" section as well as citing the data source(s) in the Sources area.0
tam turner said: I will no longer add info to my tree on family search . Incorrect info of parents make everything incorrect from that point . One person made a mistake and others followed it is the explanation I take from what I just read . The sources you have listed proves nothing . I wanted to correct it but was not allowed . I have so much info on siblings and parents birth and marriage pictures of old homesteads family bibles etc that document my facts . Stick with your source .Also one of your members stole or borrowed my pics on John Frank Turner and Rufus Turner from my findagrave page and didnt credit my cousin for sharing them . That's how correct my info is . Sorry I have to quit my tree but you are forcing my Turner tree to be incorrect from parents of Henry Turner and beyond . Your tree is useless if it is wrong0

A thing I find very helpful is to "watch" individuals. Every week you receive an email about changes that have been made to them. I find this useful for fixing wrong edits.
As for the FindaGrave photos, the FAG terms and conditions (which are the same as Ancestry's since they own them), say:
"Any User Provided Content that you have made public or shared (e.g. by including such User Provided Content in a public Ancestry family tree, as part of your public profile in one of the Services or in a public posting on one of our Services) may be used by other users as part of, or in conjunction with, the Services. We will not be required to remove any information or User Provided Content that you have made public or has otherwise been shared from the family trees or public profiles of other users"
There is therefore nothing wrong with other people downloading a copy of your photo and posting it to FamilySearch. FS isn't obliged to, and is unable to, stop these photos from being uploaded to the FS Family Tree. If you disagree with this, you should delete your photos from FindAGrave immediately.0
