Where can we find the stickers to add to profiles?

According to the new rule requiring project boxes to be used only for project managed profiles, the Holocaust project box needs to be replaced by a sticker.  Where can I find the sticker to replace the project box on profiles that really belong to the project but are managed by active members?

Hi Gaile - I think this is still a bit of an ongoing discussion at the moment, as I'm not entirely certain all projects have replacement stickers at this time. Holocaust is one of them.

You might touch base with Eowyn and Maggie to see when they expect to have that one developed.

Hi Gaile!

I'll see about getting one made.  I'm traveling right now so it'll probably be next week.  If you have any suggestions as to what you'd like it to say, post here or shoot me an email.

THANX Eowyn.  I think it would probably be good for WikiTree to have each project's sticker look similar to the project's box, since they will be used on profiles that are part of the project. Even though these profiles are not project managed, they are still part of the project as a result of being in categories belonging to the project.  As a general guideline, smaller is better (in my opinion) but I'm more than happy to leave the detailed design to you - I have full confidence that you'll come up with something wonderful - far more so than anything I could think of!
Gaile, are these profiles that should be protected ? If so, they should retain their project box and be (co-)managed by a project acccount.
Jillaine, no protection needed.  The Holocaust project only has recent profiles, for obvious reasons.  It manages those that are orphaned and may take over management of those whose managers are unresponsive if profile improvement is needed.

This project differs from those where protection is often an issue - these are all very recent profiles and about 95% of them died within 3 years of each other (with the same cause of death).  Most are siblings or cousins of ancestors of people living today, rather than direct ancestors. They aren't proliferated widely across the internet, so duplicates are very rare.  Also, being so recent, it is rare to find them common ancestors of multiple WikiTree members.

The project box is more than just notice that these profiles belong to a project - it represents a badge of honor for them, so it would hurt to have to remove it from profiles managed by their family members, unless there is a sticker to replace it.
