This showed up in the 902 db_errors report.

It's been abandoned by its creator.

I'm not sure what to do with it?

Actually, it looks like there may be a bunch of these created by the same person back in 2013: http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Turin-8

He was last active in January 2014.

It's "Yossi Ashur" in Hebrew. So it's following guidelines except for the absence of any other data. It should be treated like any other unsourced, undated profile floating around.

But it's very odd. The profile ID # comes before the text of the name. It's like 123-Smith instead of Smith-123. Is there any reason not to delete it?
Hebrew is written right to left, that's probably why the number "follows" the name to the left.

Well, it is not useful in its current state, so if someone wanted to adopt it and put it to some new purpose, I think that would be fine. On the other hand, it's existence in its current state wouldn't seem to be causing any problems. Not sure it's worth messing with.

What is the definition of a profile ;-)

Maybe a candidate for database management correction ?

What's the rule on none Latin alphabet's, should they all be standardised? If so could he not become Yossi Ashur (maybe merged into self to standardise the reference). However he also has a private wife and children attached and unless someone can see those no one would ever know who he was without the profile managers help.

The naming policy is to use the person's own language and that includes non-latin alphabets.

"This applies for names with accented characters, and even for languages with non-Latin alphabets. WikiTree can accept most character sets, such as Cyrillic, Chinese, and Arabic.

Note that English translations can go in the less formal fields, such as Nicknames and Other Last Names. And biographies can be written in multiple languages."

This could be him, he has a wife and children that could be living.
