Hello, correction officers. I got complaints about PMs sent to users.
"I have been contacted today about two of my profiles
with a not so polite request to make them open. I
eventually discovered that the person was involved in
This was not such a positive experience and I am
disappointed in the way that it was handled.
May I please respectfully ask that you remind your
project members of the stated goals of being polite and
not making profile managers feel like they have been
singled out for the naughty corner.
Thank you and good luck for the future"
The PM looked something like this
“The person in this profile xxxxx. Please xxxx. Thanks”
Message looks kind of ok, but it should be extended, it should include informations about the project, and should state that the user is not guilty of anything. Just that computer found this possible error an if he can correct it.

I am helping out with the Corrections Project here on
Wikitree. Our aim is to make the tree a lot more
accurate and easier for everyone to work with. You
can see more about it here (insert hyperlink). So,

status from Public to Open as the Wikitree rules
suggest that everyone who died more than 200 years
ago should have this status. That would be very much
appreciated. Thank you and keep enjoying the tree!
