Fix a Notables profile

I adopted my 4th cousin, Henry Mower Rice (Rice-8032) a couple weeks ago.  He is "Notable" - I did not put it there but then yesterday, on my Suggestions section, I was informed that it needed to be fixed.  It was fine a week ago.  I didn't edit it much at all - I added his mother, Ellen Durkee, and his brother, Edmund Rice (Rice-18894), who also should be "Notable" but is not.

I am a year into this and working mainly on my family (Rice (Dad) and Young (Mom)).

I do not understand any of the rules and policies I am reading under Notables, and Notable Project, and Notable Boxes.  Do I need to join the Notables Project in order to do anything or do I need to ask someone here to edit them for me??  I appreciate any help.

You just need to change the Notables project box template to the Notables sticker template - then move the sticker to the Biography section.

Thank you!!!
In other words, you need to make of {{Notables}} (which you will see in Edit Mode) a {{Notables Sticker}} and move that from above ==Biography== to under ==Biography==. That's all.

Jeanie - I made a couple of adjustments to Edmund's biography.   (Level 2 headers are restricted to Biography, Sources, Research Notes, and Acknowledgements - and <ref>tags</ref> should never be added to a header of any size.)

You can go ahead and add the Notables template {{Notables Sticker|Minnesota, Politicians}} beneath the Biography header on his profile.

Thank you very much, Melanie! I appreciate your help and your tips.

Happy to help, if and when I can.  I also figure some folk learn by telling them how, some by being shown, some by both.  Not knowing which is your learning mode, I went for both. smiley
