If you see instances where it looks like a member has created multiple accounts, it would be best to send a note to the team at

For the record, I do not see any guest accounts for the name Michelle Robinson.
Hi Joanna

If you add the profile URL or URL's  to your post if they are duplicates they can be explored and as Karen says merged

Here are the suspect Guest ID's:  Robinson-12510





Please see list of ID's posted as a Comment.

Sometimes a guest member will create a second profile for themselves, if they have signed up with their married name rather than their last name at birth, and will then merge them together, the greeters will pick up on duplicate profiles, especially if they have been created close together, occasionally one may slip past (we are only human)smiley and will send a message to the person asking them to merge them, if they have not done so themselves, or will ask the team to merge them xxx
