Why isn't there a bulk trusted list request form?

I'm getting a lot of database errors on profiles of people who are kin to me, but with whom I am neither on their trusted list nor a profile manager and the profiles are public, but not open profiles.  I've asked the managers to fix the profiles, but they haven't yet done so.

I don['t know if a bulk trusted list request would help or not, but it's certainly better than making 16 or more trusted list requests to the same profile manager or managers.

And I'm not sure if I'm the only one getting these database error messages. 

I have a lot more than 6 surnames that are affected, but six seems to be the max allowed.  Why?

I don't know the answer to the surnames question.

I don't need to remove myself from trusted lists of oodles of relatives of mine managed by the same person, but add myself to all the trusted lists in one fell swoop.  I'm not interested in making sixteen or more individual trusted list requests. 

The special trusted list request doesn't answer the question.  If the profiles were open, I wouldn't have to make the requests to fix the database errors in them.  Though Evelyn Carlin married my great-great-great grandfather, David Farney, I don't have access to her profile or that of hers and David's children. Daughters get married and no longer carry the Farney name.

There are a lot of different surnames--more than six.  Some of David's daughters are the following: Amanda (Farney) Wilson who died in 1913, Auzillia (Farney) Anderson who was married in 1880, Ruth Ann (Farney) Hatton, Ellen (Farney) Wallace, and Mary Elizabeth (Farney) Jones. He had sons as well.  Many of them had children, grandchildren, etc. 

Since the profile manager isn't removing the spelling errors, etc., I'd like to get it done, but can't as I have no editorial rights. 

 I have other relatives from other profile managers who haven't corrected the errors that have to be corrected as well, but I'm not allowed to edit the profiles listed on my error report as those profiles aren't open either.

When you submit a request to be added to a trusted list, you typically include an explanation for the request, and as part of that you can include the WikiTree IDs for other profiles managed by that same person that you'd like to be added to.  If that profile manager decides to approve your request, then he/she is presented with a list of other IDs, and may check off the additional ones to which you'll be added.  I don't think it's necessary to submit 16 requests or get 16 responses from the same manager, and the individual surnames wouldn't matter, but you would need to list the profiles you want.  If there are multiple PMs involved, you would need to submit a request to each one, and each one may decide on a case-by-case basis whether to add you.  If you get no response, there are procedures both for dealing with a non-responsive PM and for requesting a profile to be openerd.  If you get a negative response and the PM still won't make corrections, there is also a procedure for resolving problems with other members.
