Am I seeing a ghost? (Global Family Reunion template has reappeared.)

+6 votes
Recently I've started seeing the Global Family Reunion template on the top of profiles, usually listing a longer number of steps to Al Jacobs than is shown at the bottom of the same profile. It feels like I'm seeing a ghost. I thought this template was decommissioned after the links were added at the bottom of the profile, and confirms that the template was "cleared out"

Was the template restored deliberately, or is its reappearance a result of a tech bug?

Hi Ellen,

That's odd. What's an example of a profile on which you're seeing it?

After you replied, I stopped running into profiles that displayed this template (partly because I was deleting it after I found it), but I just found another instance of it:
Ah, that was the "user box" version of the template as opposed to the "profile box" version.

It's supposed to be for active members so I removed it.

We didn't redirect that template since we figured members might still choose to use it.
