Issue with merging [closed]

+9 votes
I am having trouble merging two profiles that I am confident are the same person.

Ewing-1302 is a protected project so it cannot be merged into any other profile. Profiles need to be merged into it instead. However, the profile I want to merge has a lower number, Ewing-1205 and so I cannot merge in that direction.

As an "Aborist", this is the first time I have come across a merge that cannot be proposed because when you try to propose the normal higher into lower number profile merge,  you are instructed to complete the lower merge into the higher PP profile . So we are going round in circles!! This can't be correct surely?
As Helmut Jungschaffer suggested, I have contacted the leader of the 1776 Project. Hopefully she will be able to fix this strange error.
Hey Melissa,

Doesn't seem all that strange to me as it is quite possible that a lowered numbered profile with the correct LNAB could have been hiding somewhere on our big ole shared tree.

It's situations like this that bring these things out from under the leaves so they can be straightened out.  Great catch!

Contact the Project Leader for the 1776 Project. They will be able to change the Project Protection to allow the merge into the lower number.
