How do you change a profile managers name

WikiTree has been filled with large numbers of ancestors trawled from the Family Trees on the net.  For example in WikiTree I see this quite often ''This biography is a rough draft. It was auto-generated by a GEDCOM import and needs to be edited.'' And Source: <span id='S-2050775427'>S-2050775427</span> Title:  Ancestry Family Trees Publication:  

This allowed WikiTree to have large amounts of unsupported genealogical information in its database, The profile managers for these entries usually have 30,000 to 50,000 entries.They do not respond to emails which suggests they have no interest in the family name.

How do I change the profile names so that someone with a family interest can connect to, and corresponded with, other family members.

You can't change the profile manager's name, but you can ask to join the trusted list and post a message on his profile page that you did that. If he/she does not respond, you will have to follow the Unresponsive manager route. Check out the bottom of the page on the Family Tree and tools tab on the profile you wanted to join.
And if the profile is open, you can edit it and clean up that junk and add better sources.

Thanks unaware of the unresponsive profile manager tool.  I have simply added to the Biography section in the hope that those interested in this family will contact me.

"Biography by Bill Irving (Irving-332)

If you want to amend, add to or removed biographical information please contact."

Your answer about being unable to change the Profile Manager does raise the problem about what happens when the profile manager dies.  There must be a mechanism to replace their name.

yes, the mechanism is the unresponsive profile manager process.
