Working a large family. Max number of Family on TRUSTED LIST???

+10 votes
Working the family of an in-law.  Including her, there are EIGHT siblings; no paperwork yet, but it appears they ALL have offspring.... and THEY have offspring.  Seems to me that many wks ago I saw there is MAXIMUM number of people who can be entered on the Trusted list for a single Profile.  For the life of me, I can't find that on our website.  Can someone please point out where that information can be found?  Thank you.

Are they all joining WikiTree?  Only users can be added to Trusted Lists.

If you want them all on your Watchlist, that's not a problem.

-Thank you for your rapid reply.  Yes.  All will be entered as Family Members.  So stating with the 8 siblings and their spouses:

     8 Siblings and 8 Spouses = 16 Family Members on trusted Lists

-All of the above have 1 or more Married children WITH young children

     8 children each with 8 offspring = 16 Family Members on Trusted List

That's 32 adults... maybe more.  I came across a statement several weeks ago which said there was a limit of 25 individuals on the Trusted List for each Profile.  Darned if I an fin it after searching WIKITREE for over one hour.

I think there's some misunderstanding here... unless they each want to have their own separate login account to make edits, they do not need to be on the trusted list.

All the adults in those multiple families will be coming on board as "Family" members on their respective profiles.  They will be contributing biographical and other pertinent data and that does require them to be on the Trusted List for their related profiles, per the instructions given on WIKITREE un the Subject of "Family Memberships."
Since you can't find any documented limit (and no one else has pointed it out yet), you may just have to discover the limit the hard way by actual experimentation. <sad face> If so, then maybe the limits should be reexamined. Otherwise, under typical circumstances, 25 seems reasonable (I have no idea how much strain it puts on the database).
