this profile has a proposed merge with a private profile with an un active manager

+6 votes
I proposed this merge quite awhile ago. I don't want either profile. Who would I contact to see if the merge is a match. The locked profile is an 1890 profile.

I also have proposed a merge of one of my profiles with a private profile, but the manager has never responded to the request nor to my message. The individual died in 1965, but the other manager set the profile to private with public biography. The profiles need to be merged. Can anything be done?

Hi, Mark --

If you scroll down to the bottom of the page for the profile you want to merge with, you'll see a link for the Unresponsive Profile Manager request form. This will give you some steps to walk through to get the merge processed.

Trudy, In this case, it doesn't look like these are the same men.  One was born and lived in North Carolina and the other in Kentucky.  I would probably reject the merge.

But your question is what to do about a profile when there is a proposed merge and one of the Profile Managers is inactive.  I would put a message on the profile and also send a private message to the Profile Manager.  As the Privacy Setting is Private, it cannot be opened for adoption.  The process for Private profiles is HERE.

Thank you Vic. How did you know where the privite profile guy was born? All that I see is a date of 1890. And the name. What am I missing?
Trudi, The Privacy for Brock-1012 is dark orange (Private with Public Biography), so the Biography is Open, but the data is not (screwy, isn't it).  I just read down into the profile and saw the info about where he spent his life.
Thanks Vic. Duh Trudy moment. You would think I would know to do that after all this time.
Been there, done that.
