Do we have a template for flagging profiles of potential living people?

+7 votes

One thing I'm noticing while working through 902 of AleŇ° Trtnik's database errors project: Many of the orphaned profiles (and even not-orphaned profiles) that have empty dates SEEM to be of living people. 

Do we have a template for identifying/flagging potential living people that need to be dealt with in some way or another? Do we want one? This would be a maintenance template/category, not a template to put on all profiles of living people.

Could not find a template for this so my answer would be no.

If the profile(s) are open then you could change it to living in edit.

Hi Jillaine,

We might not want to draw special attention to them if they're situations where sensitive info is being revealed unintentionally. Perhaps you could just keep a list and send them to Paul at paul@?

Thank you!

heh heh.

there is NO information on these other than a name. (Error code 902 in Ales' new tool.)

But as I poke about online trying to find something about them, it becomes pretty clear that they are living people.

I did google one that turned out to have some sort of conviction recently...
