Need access to locked profile

+9 votes
I'm working on Trask-83 and somehow I mistakenly set Barrow-1645 as mother instead of spouse.  Once that happened, the profile locked up and wouldn't let me correct it.  It has no owner but I cannot adopt because it is too recent a death.

Please make me owner or correct the error.

I've begun a habit of adopting profiles before making changes for this very reason. You can always un-adopt afterwards.
Dennis, that qualifies as an answer, please move.

Because of the Privacy Level, you can't adopt the profile. You need to contact someone in sysops  Email to and explain that it's an abandoned profile you'd like adopt it, or you would like the Privacy Level changed.  GIve them a day or two to get to your request.
