On the trusted list of a profile and still can't complete / approve a merge after more than 30 days ...

+8 votes

I am on the trusted list of both these profiles (with permission of the profile manager) but I believe the privacy settings of both profiles are preventing us from merging the two duplicates, even though it has been nearly one and a half months now:

  1. Privacy Level 40 Jan Van der Walt (Van der Walt-125) and Privacy Level 30 Jan van der Walt (Van der Walt-1526)   Compare compare
    Proposed by Wynand van der Walt.
    Someone from Van der Walt-125's Trusted List needs to approve. Help
    Someone from Van der Walt-1526's Trusted List needs to approve. Help
    If they're duplicates approve this merge.
          If Van der Walt-125 and Van der Walt-1526 are different people, reject the merge.

The privacy is not set to "open".

That shouldn't make any difference. I am on the trusted list. Though I agree - it is not on green or on white, which means there must be some other privacy setting issue there.
Maybe the fact that the 2 profiles have different privacy levels is preventing the merge. If one of the profile managers changes the setting to match the other profile, will that let it go through?

I apologise for my delay in answering, it does appear though that the two profiles of my father have been successfully merged.

I have only recently been bold enough to participate in merging profiles and correcting same.

Thank you for being so patient with me.

No problem Rene, at least you have been communicating a lot and been recently more active despite of your other pressing obligations - besides your massive GEDCOM way back in the beginning of 2013 was actually the basis of our project - thanks for that!
Thank You! I don't think i knew what i was getting myself into when i uploaded that GEDCOM! I am glad i did though. Despite the fact that i do still study in order to keep up with the professional development of Mental Health Nursing, amongst other things, I enjoy this immensely, it is a passion of mine, and if I could i would be on my PC all day & nigh! :)

Thank you Phillip for all your help, & your never ending patience, I am sure i still do things that probably makes your hair stand on end (Ha Ha), but i am getting there with your guidance & that of many of the other members who have emailed me.

Have an awesome day everyone, this is my night time here in NZ.

For everyone's benefit, when one or both profiles are set to PRIVATE, the merges will not default approve.
