30 days will happen by default
Hi Keith

I hadn't realized that had actually posted to the forum.

My question was going to be this.

The profile manager hasn't made any changes since 2013 from what I could see, and I had emailed him a couple of months ago with no reply.
Is there a way for an admin to have a look at the merges I proposed?
Hi Wayne, I don't think sysops step in simply to avoid waiting 30 days to give the manager a chance to collaborate.  Their actions are usually to help keep the website functioning properly.  I think patience in that area will prevail and the default procedure will prevail.  Cheers!
Email to the profile manager is a nice courtesy when proposing a merge, but it's not the only (nor even the best) way to initiate a merge.

To propose a merge, open the public page for the profile that you think should be merged into another profile, and click on "initiate a merge" in the the lower left corner of the page. On the screen that comes up next, enter the ID for the profile that you want to merge to in the box labeled "ID-2." Then click the "MERGE" button.

The profile managers will receive email about your proposal and can approve or reject the proposal. After 30 days without a response, the proposal gets default approval.
