Just a quick update for Syndicate Co-ordinators.
The latest update (20/10/2004) of the Suspect Report shows a further
reduction in the number of Suspect Files.
We are now down to 165 Suspect Files and any help you can give in reducing
this still further would be appreciated?
I'm aware a number of Co-ordinators are assisting in getting this list down
to manageable proportions.
Co-ordinators can disregard any files where the problem is shown as "Too
many entries between +PAGE" as the chances are I'm already working on
eliminating these files from the Suspect Report.
Some Co-ordinators are waiting for me supply them with "Challenge" details
for some of their volunteers to enable them to take over ownership of the
volunteers File Management to correct Suspect Files. I hope to complete
any outstanding requests later today.

Most of you will be aware I have been actively involved with the
co-operation of others to eliminate
all the suspect files in the Suspect Report at:
There were lots of suspects file way back on 23 February 2003 which was
whittled down to about 400 by 8 Oct 2003. By 17 September 2004 it had been
substantially reduced to less than 30 suspect files and was going down on a
We are continually tweaking the Suspect Report criteria to weed out more
suspect files. Barrie Archer recently identified some file which
unfortunately do not conform to our highly recommended naming convention and
weren't being picked up the Suspect Report. This situation has been
corrected and the most recent Suspect Report picks up these files.
The net result is an increase in the number of files in the Suspect Report.
I've already started to take action in sorting out some of the suspect files
and there are about a further 650 files still to be sorted out.
The co-operation of Co-ordinators in checking the Suspect Report on a
regular weekly basis to identify and assist any of their volunteers with
suspect files would be appreciated. I find I'm spending a lot of time
dealing with volunteers who have suspect files which is an area perhaps
better dealt with by the intervention of Co-ordinators.
There may be a surprise for some Co-ordinators if they visited Suspect
I monitor the number of suspect files on a daily basis and my aim is to get
the list down to zero figures by the end of December 2004. I'm actively
involved in correcting the files of one volunteer who has the predominate
number of suspect files.
