No Open Profile Request menu item when on the trusted list but not manager

When I removed myself from the trusted list the drop-down menu item for Open Profile Request appeared and I was able to submit the Open Request. This profile just became eligible to be Open as the DOB hit 150 years. I noticed this as he showed up in my DB Errors report this week. Seems to be unintentional behavior.

As Deb says in his answer:

"any time a 150/100+ profile is edited it will be changed to Open if it isn't already. The member will see an alert stating this."

Thanks for the reminder. I had forgot about the auto-opening feature.
You're welcome Marty.

Hmm, if I am placed on the trusted list of a closed profile that should be open, it automatically opens whenever I save an edit. I wonder if this is related. It actually seems like a good behavior in respect to opening these profiles.

Yes, it's set so that when you edit a profile with birth 150+ years ago or death 100+ years ago, the profile will open itself if it wasn't already open.
