How can you tell which project is protecting a profile?

I've just encountered a profile marked as profile protected. There was a proposal to merge in Cook-5822 to Cook-4, which I completed six weeks after it was initially proposed. The request was approved by default, after no action by either profile manager.

Thing is, I don't see any indication of which project Cook-4 is protected by. Its content is nothing but GedCom generated. No sources for either half of the merge. The merge didn't look controversial to me - two matching unsourced profiles combined into one.

But I am left wondering what project has protected it. And why.

Perhaps because she's (Confederate) President jefferson Davis' mother?

Elizabeth:

1/ Click on the profile's Changes Tab,

2/ Scroll down to the entries for 21 February 2012,

3/ Notice the entry stating: “08:28: 08:28: Chris Whitten edited the Biography and Locked Status for Jane Davis. [Thank Chris for this]

4/ Click on Chris' hyperlinked name to open his personal profile page,

5/ From Chris' profile, send him a private message asking him for the answer you seek.

 

The term “Locked Status” within a profile's changes log tell us the individual that locked the profile is the person that initiated the “Project Protected” status.

 

In the absence of a comment being posted upon the protected profile, I believe the only way to determine the precise reason for the status is to ask.
