303 Mother is Male

+7 votes
Moore-4795 is listed as mother on error list, but is listed as male in his profile.  This does not seem like an error, what am I missing?

The problem is with the order the names are entered.  It puts the parents
in the wrong position on the daughter Ellen's profile.  You have to change them around and put the fathers name first.

In the profile of daughter Ellen Martha it says:

Daughter of Martha Moore and Thomas Moore

This means Martha is linked as father and Thomas as mother

So the parents should be switched. Then the profile will be correct and say:

Daughter of Thomas Moore and Martha Moore

I had that on one of my profiles.  The only way to make it right to to detach them and attach them again.

I finished my laundry and have time to help.  I changed the new identities
of Ellen's parents by editing each of them and switching the profile  ids
so each matched up with the correct parent.  I hope you don't mind.  I don't know your level of ability but sometimes things are beyond my ability and I appreciate some help from others.  Now, go back to the error page and mark it temp hidden.  It will be removed next Monday.  Don't expect it to go away on the listing until you have been off the errors page and then back  on again later.

You don't have to mark it temp hidden. It hides an error for a month. It will disappear next monday on it's own if corrected. 

Main purpose of temp hidden is, if you write the note to profile manager, so error is hidden for a month and if it wasn't corrected by profile manager, it reappears.

Some people are also using this, if they have a lot of errors to correct, so their error list is slowly reduced and user don't need to remember, what he corrected.

But on prepared error lists it doesn't hide until monday.

I don't know her level of expertise and I remember when I started making corrections and they didn't disappear, I wondered what was wrong.  Now I know they will be gone the next time I am on the page so I tried to reassure
she had done it correctly.  Thanks for the input.
