Accidently added birth date without adopting profile.

+11 votes

Tonight while working with several Liptak profiles, I had found the birth date for Catherine (Shinn) Liptak . I forgot that living persons would go immediately to red privacy, and inadvertly stopped me from doing anything else with profile. I wanted to adopt it as I did three other Liptak profiles but wanted to be sure this one matched with her husband first. 

So now I can not adopt it or edit it. Can someone add me to this profile please. Shinn-4   . Thanks!!

Hi Sandra,

When I went to the link for Catherine Shinn's profile, I see the link "adopt this profile".

When you go there, do you see this link too? If so, can you go ahead and adopt the profile?
Eric, you can't adopt a profile that has a red privacy rating. Not sure if thats new but I did try a couple of times to no avail. (It still shows as adoptable until you click on it, then it says unable to adopt). Thanks anyway for responding.
You've been added as a manager, Sandra.
Thank you very much Abby. Now she completes her family that I have currently.

I can adopt the profile for you and then set you as manager but you will need to send me your WikiTree e mail address so I can do it for you. We can no longer use a Wiki ID for setting trusted list or manager of a profile.

David I don't think you can adopt it either, try and see. Then I will send you my email address. Thanks for responding though.
Tried to adopt the profile and it says the profile is not public so you need to put your pointer on help and click contact Wiki team and ask one of the team to set you as profile manager. This some times happens but can be corrected by a team member.

Sandra, If you are related to that person you could send an Email to and he could set you as the manager, but if you are not related and no other related person steps forward then the profile will eventually be deleted according to WikiTree policy.
