I wish those HIstorically significant ancestors had a different identifying radio button
something 'shocking' -
brightly neon color not used anywhere else on WikiTree ?
blinking light!!! ?
square/triangle/star instead of round?
or some other way to tip you off when looking at potential matches/merges - that would indicate:
This person already has a major profile, lots of details and lots and descendants and they're already HERE.
Sometimes potential match lists are quite long, some may be a similar name, but different dates etc. Some have no detail, some have lots. Some come from imported gedcoms so you can't check any sources, because the link brings you to private or some other unavailable site or a pay to view site, so how do you know?
If the fairly complete Historically Significant, already merged profiles were somehow noted in a very obvious manner, that was indicative of : Hey, I'm HERE, Look at ME FIRST - I think it would be very useful.
