Might it be a good idea to add a "cleaning up" section to the merging instructions?

There was a little discussion of this back in March http://www.wikitree.com/g2g/69735/could-cleaning-profiles-section-added-the-merging-help-page but nothing was added to the "Merging" page http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Merging

yes  Some of the new changes are fabulous, such as directing to the profile at the end of the merge, and the instructions on cleaning up GEDCOMS, which are under "GEDCOM-created biographies"  http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/GEDCOM-created_biographies

Might we put these same instructions under the "Merging" page (above), and also add them to the "Steps After importing a GEDCOM" page too? http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/After_importing_a_GEDCOM  (maybe as links, if there are space considerations, with BIG BLOCK letters and arrows ... and stars)?

I am finding lots of newer members are merging (which is great), but few are cleaning up, and they are telling me they didn't get the message.  (and when I go to find the instructions to send them, I do have to hunt a bit ... which may be just me)  indecision

Someone else suggested the Greaters could emphasize cleaning up, both after the GEDCOM import, and after merging (sounds like a great idea to me).

D'all ya'll think this wod hep eny?  (I am allowed, because I claim Southerness)
