On Cutler-184 there is no profile manager. So hypothetically anyone should be able to merge it away. According to the help page.
However this should still work as it does not prevent other profiles from being merged into it. I just looked on the Profile appears the PPP status has been moved off for the merge however that shouldn't have been necessary according to the help page.
Project-protecting a profile does three things:
- It tells the WikiTree community that the profile belongs in a project. Major edits shouldn't be taken lightly. They should be discussed.
- It protects the Last Name at Birth. The LNAB on a protected profile cannot be changed and the profile cannot be merged-away.
- It protects the parents. You need to be a manager of the profile, or a Project Coordinator or Leader to edit the parents of a PPP.
It does not prevent other profiles from being merged into it.
It does not prevent anyone from editing the profile.
It does not prevent anyone from adding or editing siblings, spouses, and children
