Why do I need to be on trusted list to make changes to an open profile?? [closed]

+9 votes

This profile is open and has his mother/father in the wrong places. 

I removed his mother as father and also his father as mother. When trying to add his father to the profile of Roger it wont let me, I get the following message: Sorry, you cannot add an existing person as a family member unless you are in their Trusted List. 

I have altered the place of father and mother before on open profiles and it has worked then, what is different this time? 

His father should be Ivan Wilder, https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Wilder-1644

Because Ivan is green locked. Only trusted list can edit a public profile.

Ahh... the father had a green lock on his profile. Guess I will be writing a private message to the manager, explain and ask for help correcting it. Thanks Eddie
