The merge has only just been proposed. One profile has no manager, the other has one. Managers have a period of 30 days to look at and respond to proposals for merges before they go to default approval. See https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:Matching_and_Merging_FAQ#What_can_you_do_if_you.27re_waiting_for_approval_from_someone_else.3F.

Sorry. I have just spotted, Carole, that you are the manager of the profile concerned - oops. I have completed the merge - I had to adopt the profiles temporarily to do so.
Michael,

I did not know we were “allowed” to do that or I would have done so. Thank you for teaching me something!
You can adopt orphaned profiles. I used the extra powers I have as a WT Leader to adopt the profile Carole managed. I felt able to do that because Carole asked for the merge and no other manager was involved :-)

Michael,

Yes, I did not realize that adopting it would solve the problem. I am happy to have learned something new! Thank you for taking care of that.

I just tried and it said this:

Robert Austen (Austen-82) and Robert Austin (Austin-468) are already connected in a proposed merge.
