I got locked out of a profile I was working on because I didn't put in a death date on the first go around

The person was born less than 100 years ago.  I was forced to add a second profile for the same person, put in the death date immediately, and then merge the two.   Seems a little complicated!  What did I do wrong?

You shouldn't have created a duplicate.  When you were locked out of the first one, you needed to contact info @ wikitree.com.  And you'll never get locked out that way again, will you? ;)wink

Thanks Ros,   I still get stymied by occasional computer glitches now and then, (like hitting save with no results, hitting it again and finding out I've posted duplicate profiles).  I appreciate the "info@wikitree.com".  I'll try that next time.
what you did wrong on the first one

Very odd.  You shouldn't get locked out of a profile that you're the manager of.
