I've just added a bunch of profiles that show up on geni's list of most popular profiles that could use some "about" cleanup in their profiles.
The project were we temporarily tag profiles that need editing is found here:
Most of these need clean up as the result of merges. Below each profile I've listed the current curator if there was one. Since these popular profiles get more visitors it would probably be best to re-visit them occasionally to make sure their "about" sections are still ok.
I'd be willing to clean up any or all of these eventually but if you want to "sign up" with the intent that you'll do a clean up pass just respond to this discussion called "Popular Profile Cleanup".
A random selection (mainly USA connected) of profiles that needed various amounts of cleanup as of June 24, 2011:
Maj. Gen. Benedict Arnold
Humphrey DeForest Bogart
Laura Ingalls Wilder
Nancy Hanks Lincoln
Richard Williams "the Immigrant" (1606-1693)
Joseph Alden, Sr
James Madison, 4th President of the USA
William Bradford, IV, Dep. Gov. of Plymouth Colony
Henry Ford, I
Dwight D. Eisenhower, 34th President of the USA
Barack H. Obama, 44th President of the USA
George Washington, 1st President of the USA
John F. Kennedy, 35th President of the USA
Lt. Joseph Rogers, "Mayflower" Passenger
Franklin D. Roosevelt, 32nd President of the USA
John Alden, "Mayflower" Passenger
Daniel Morgan Boone, Sr. (1734-1820)

As of this afternoon there are 80+ profiles in the project. This discussion is specifically about focusing on cleaning up some "popular" profiles but the "about cleanup" project itself is designed for anyone to use to tag profiles for latter cleanup. So the project is for both popular and obscure. As a rule of thumb if you add 5 profiles to the project then make the commitment that you'll pick either those 5 profiles or even 5 others that you'll clean-up. As a way of indicating progress please post a message to one of the discussion topics when you've cleaned up a profile (and removed it from the project) so that others can go and see your good work!
