I keep having sourced profile have the sources removed how do I stop this.

+1 vote
I just went onto my unsourced profiles and I am getting profiles that were sourced hours ago and now those sources have been removed and they are now umsourced. So of the sources I had I no longer have access to and now may not be able to source them. Also any profile I am listed as owner on I have personal knowledge of or I am their family.

The below listed profile was sourced and now its not.

Rachel, you are the PM of this privacy protected profile, so unless you have someone on the trusted list only you can make changes.

I suggest you go to the changes tab and check what was done (I cannot see as it is private). If nothing is there might I suggest you omitted to ‘save changes’. If it is there you can always revert to the date prior to the change.

Other than that I can’t think what happened.

Or she was using inline citations and some <ref> tags got mismatched or the <references/> accidentally got deleted, it would look like the sources had disappeared when really its just that the system didn't know to display them.
Good point Barry, and more than likely.
