K9Data Info

I've been looking up lots of dogs on K9data recently...just absorbing information, studying lines, etc. I came across a dog where the administrators have locked this dog's info from being edited. What would be the reason for that?? Just curious.

There should be no reason someone doing research would need to edit the k9data of a dog owned by someone else. We all know k9data is a fantastic database but can be adjusted by the unknown. Many breeders use this database keeping track of their dogs and line and work to keep it accurate and true. They sure would have the choice to lock out adjustments if they so choose. The only example I could think of that someone other then the owner would add is if they discovered a missing pedigree. This you could contact the owner as they should be more then glad to update. I would hope if anyone was making adjustments it was for the good of the database and accurate history but this is not always true. I am sure some lock out because they have false info and they don't want anyone to adjust the truth but there would be a lot more red flags then k9data. Example would be listing clearances in k9data that can not verified with OFA. Can I ask why you think you would need access?

I have seen administrators lock historical dogs. Those that are influential and are of historical value. Those are the only ones I have ever seen locked previously.

I don't think the OP is saying she would need access to modify a dog on k9data for any reason. I think she was just asking why a dog would be locked.

Dogs have also been locked when people have posted unsubstantiated defamatory information about them, or when owners have posted false information about them (such as fake clearance numbers!) Then the admins remove the problematic content and lock the dog so it is not repeated.

I don't need or want to edit the dog's information. I just came across a sire that several English type golden breeders have been using out here on the west coast and noticed his information was locked by administrators...just wondering why.

I've run across several locked dogs myself. Sometimes historical, but often because of people making incorrect or false changes.

If you click on the "View change history" button, you can see a list of the changes made and who made them. I always check that out-very illuminating sometimes I've seen a lot of dogs locked because the owner (or someone else) was entering false clearance information.

Just to clarify, if a dog is not LOCKED, anybody not just the owner, can update the statistics of that dog?

Yup They can.

It have done it once or twice. The breeders name was spelled wrong and they were related to my previous golden, Lucky. That is as far as I would go. I would only do it I was 100% sure of the info.

I do what I like and like what I do. Yorkies- Cozy (4/1/06), Roxy & Zoey (2/11/08), Lucy (4/6/09); Golden- Buddy (4/13/09- Rescued 12/11) Maine Coon cats- Mika (1998) and Tallulah (2000)

Wow, then that doesn't make the info very trustworthy, like wikipedia. If I were a breeder, I would want my info locked. It only takes one disgruntled person to ruin your reputation this way.
