Why won't it let me change the privacy control on a profile I created?

+5 votes
Want to change the privacy level on a profile I created since,  the person is still living.  It is currently set at:  Private with Public Biography.  I want to change it to Unlisted.  Have changed others in the past.  Why is it not letting me change this one?  I changed it to Unlisted and clicked the save new privacy level.  But, it did not change it.  Help! Thanks.

Unlisted should not be used unless it's a minor child under 13. It's also not an option for Wiki Genealogists.

Maggie,  It says under unlisted that it is not an option for the profiles of non-living people or anyone born more than 100 years ago.  I am not wanting to change the privacy level on my own profile but, on a living family member that is over the age of 13 that has children that are also living.  I'm sorry, I must be stupid!  Do you mean a Genealogist or one of their family members can be annonymous when they are over the age of 13 but, can not be Unlisted?  Thought Unlisted privacy level just kept people on the Trusted List or the Public in general from, being able to see the listing.  Would not Unlisted also be for perhaps, adopted children or for legal reasons as such?

legally we should not be publishing the bios of living people (at least not in my country) without their express permission as it is a breach of the data protection act.
