Old Idea: CAPTCHA-like Indexing/Reviewing?
In the past I have thought (and others - apparently that old link has been archived/deleted) it would be interesting if FamilySearch implemented this type of Indexing/reviewing.
Require or allow users to set a requirement to index X # of records at FamilySearch login. Requiring data-entry of 1 field of a record doesn't take too much time from the user.
Users give back to the community by Indexing records - Indexing is a voluntary activity - but what if it were a requirement - for example, at FamilySearch login to index at least 1 field of a record? OR perhaps the user likes the idea of giving back and so would like to have a setting that requires indexing of X # of records before they use the Tree or Search Records. Plus some users probably don't have the time to dedicate to Indexing a batch - even though they have a default 7 days or whatever the project default is to complete it. As it currently stands unless a Tree user is dedicated to getting an indexing batch done - they may not even wander over to Web Indexing. This idea would allow them to do Indexing even though their primary focus is on researching the Tree/Records.
Some users probably wouldn't like this requirement - that's why I am suggesting a setting that allows them to chose if/when this 'requirement' is enabled.
