I created a Profile page, and someone erased all of my sources? Why?

Why is Wikitree allowing people I do not know erase all that I type in as a Biography and Source on a Profile page I created? And I do not know who this person is?

What is the Wikitree-ID of the profile?  Your Wikitree-ID is Floyd-2256 for example.

Hopefully this was some kind of accident - ie Bio didn't get saved, rather than an intentional deletion.

You can find what the bio previously contained and that had been saved by clicking on the Changes tab across the top of that profile.  On the change page it will show all the edits chronologically.  If someone has made changes since your entries, it will show up here as well as your entries.

If that is the case, and you want to retrieve your hard work, you can cut and paste your entries from the changes page back into the bio. If something was changed, but accidentally not saved, it won't show up here, only the last saved ones will show.

Please provide the ID of the profile.  We cannot help you without that information.

Dona, as I mentioned offline, the information must not have been saved, because once it's been saved, the Changes tab will always show every change that is made to a profile and if something is accidentally erased, it can be restored.  But there were no sources saved to the profile.
