someone added 500 profiles to my watchlist / trusted list. Can I have it undone

+9 votes
I let my watchlist get up to about 5030 profiles while connecting all the named persons on a marriage source. While trimming it back down I noticed it had actually INCREASED by about 500 profiles. I'm guessing someone gifted them to me, maybe accidentally, in the past few days. Is there a way to return the "gift"?

I can ID a few profiles that were gifted and have a suspect who probably gave them to me but is it possible to have it undone? I guess I'll just have to slog my way down to under 5000?

I've had that happen to me as well. Very frustrating!
I would really really like to see this "feature" removed.  A cousin, new to wikitree, added me to ALL of her family profiles without asking me. Removing myself from them was a pain in the ---. It doesn't seem right that someone can change your watchlist like this without your permission.

Look in the Help Index under trusted list and you can find directions on how to do bulk additions or removals.  But if the person adding you to these trusted lists has now removed him or herself, it may not be so easy.  Frankly I've never done the bulk actions, so if you can't figure it out from the help index directions, let me know and I'll see if I can do a test to figure it out.

Dave I'm 95% sure I don't want to use bulk removal but please do try it and let me know how it works.
