still not enough context?
Thanks for asking, Sir William. I had been wondering why the Errors project wants to connect my father to a Grape.

A small tree not connected to the global tree.

Grapes doesn't seem like the right word.... How about Seedling or Sapling?
Or perhaps acorns or chestnuts or gumnuts. There was a discussion somewhere about using twigs for our branches of the tree.

This is obviously translation issue (Lost in translation).

In slovenian language we use Grozd=Grape also for hierarchy of the companies,...

Apparently in english it is not used in that manner.

Any other suggestions? I newer heard for words Seedling or Sapling, so maybe other non english people also didn't.

Maybe Unconnected tree.

Another suggestion from a non-english speaking person

orphaned tree... compare how it's used in typesetting

or

disconnected...used in graph theory

I would.favour sapling. ,
I don't much like "sapling" for this, since saplings are rooted in the ground, and I perceive that these unconnected profiles float in the air.

"Unconnected tree" is not as cute as these other suggestions, but I think it is more understandable.
Indeed Unconnected tree I think all will understand, sapling for many members from different countries probably is just as mysterious as the grapes were for you William ;)

Aleš, Yes lost in translation :-)

Where did I use Grape. I found and corrected it in description of error 106. Anywhere else?
by Aleš Trtnik G2G6 Pilot (561k points)
Grape appears in a table identifying a profile that has the same name as my father and lacks connections. I can't access the errors site at the moment to see more details.
That is error 106, already corrected.
