I've been treated as a visitor

I joined WikiTree a few months back and entered data regarding kith and kin but now after a short absence away it will not recognize me as the the person listed. Treats me as a visitor and I cant see my full details. How does one get this issue sorted?

Hi Ray,

Are you referring to this profile? http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Pitt-1157

If that's you, then it looks like on June 9 you removed your email address which closed your WikiTree account. That's why Admin WikiTree shows as the profile manager.

If that is you, we can go ahead and merge your two profiles together.

Hi Ray


I don't know what happened. I just reconfirmed you as a family member with editing capability. If you sign the honor code you will be confirmed as a Wikitree volunteer and genealogist.

just had a look and it still tells me that the profile manager is still Admin WikiTree... that doesnt sound right. I have already signed the honor code before this all happened I had also added GEDCOM 66451and that also seems to have gone walk about... dont understand all this.
Ray, I have tagged your question so that those handling new memberships will respond.

When I click the link with your name I see you as a family member managing your profile. Apparently, something is wrong.
Thanks, Doug, for tagging this! I see that Eowyn has addressed it. (Thanks, Eowyn!)
