What is the Wiki ID for the profile you are having problems with?
I am also having this problem with Shaw-5421. When she was added originally the person put her last name as Shaw, but that is her married name. Her birth last name is Lewis.

Thank you for any assistance you can give on this.

I checked the Privacy list for Pegg-158 and you are not the profile manager. You will need to contact the profile manager of that person and request the name be changed.

That is strange as I put Gertrude 158 on Wikitree and joined my tree to Pamela Rose though Hall-11611. Do you know what happened there? why I am not on the list? I don't want to be joining up with people and be losing access to edit my family tree profiles.
Pamela Rose is shown as the creator for Gertrude's profile. Simply connecting your tree to another one through one profile, does not put you on the trusted list or add you as profile manager for other profiles. You will need to go to the profile for Gertrude and click the button on the right-hand side that says "request to join trusted list." You could get in touch with the profile manager Pamela Rose and asked her to add you to the trusted list for other family members that she manages.
Thank you
So Shirley do you know why Pamela is shown as the creator when she was not?  I am not that good on computer's. What did I do wrong?and how do I stop it happening again.
If you click on the Changes tab at the top of the profile, you can scroll down and see what changes were made to this particular profile. The earliest notation was the fact that Pamela created Gertrude. I do not see your name anywhere on that changes list.

When did you create the profile? Was it merged into a duplicate profile?
I see that back in October 2017 you added Gertrude as the mother for Leslie Harris. Gertrude was already there and you simply added Leslie as a daughter. I think this is where you are getting confused about creating her profile.
Ok Thank you
