How do I remove myself as a profile manager?

Bulk removal page doesn't seem to work (I can't select any names, even though the list comes up).

What I can remember about those lists "coming up" is that it takes a long time (like 10 minutes or more) for the list to load before it will work.  You will know it is ready when your Home/End keys function correctly.  Once you see that those keys will take you from top to bottom of the list it should be ready for the boxes to be checked.  Before you finish, go to the bottom of the list and click on the save button (...I don't remember what that button says anymore - something like remove these names from trusted list or so...).

Victoria, on the right side of a profile below the word: Collaboration in Green it says: the Trusted List click it & below: Name click on the little grey box beside where it shows you, then click REMOVE SELECTED PEOPLE or  simply REMOVE YOURSELF.

I am definitely sticking around!

I have just worked my way through an entire book of the Ogden Family in America, and have a lot of profiles to manage, many are really not relations in any way.

I am thrilled to have added these profiles, since they will be a starting point for someone else, but I need to work on my own family tree now.

So, I am trying to get the bulk manager to work, to no avail.

I have started the more tedious task of removing myself from each one individually. The advantage there is that I can actually check "relationship to me" on each first.

It takes time, I've removed myself from over 4,000 profiles.  I've orphaned anyone not a direct ancestor between the beginning and about 1815 on my watchlist.
