Donald Trump's Scottish granny currently has a poorly sourced profile at https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Smith-86511 which is showing a 931 ProjectBox Without Project Account error.

I'm happy to add some basic sources, but does the US Presidents Project want to take her on?

The error message is because a project box was used that requires that specific project to be added as a PM/Co-PM of that individual.

There is a Sticker that doesn't require a Project to Manage/Co-Manage and I had placed that one on the profile.

Thanks Brian.  

I asked, rather than just changing the project box for a sticker, because the US Presidents Project says it manages 4 generations of ancestors for US Presidents.

Here is the issue, the profile manager has to add the project.   The project cannot add itself.   A request has been sent.

But, due to the restrictions of GDPR on WikiTree, mentioning that this person is related to a "living" person is currently not allowed.   We are trying to work through this situation with the team.

Thanks Robin, it hadn't occured to me that the project had to be invited to become a manager!
