how to accept a profile

+3 votes

I want to link a profile I just made to an existing profile. That's what WikiTree is for, right? But this is my first time and I don't know how to proceed. The help page says I will see "a form to send a Trusted List request" on the profile. However, I don't see any such form. In fact this profile said it's open. At least I think that's what it said, but now I can't even find the profile again to check. Could someone kindly help me?


WikiTree profile: Jacob Hyder

Which is the other profile that you are trying to link Jacob to?
The other profile is Hyder-174.

What you do is propose a merge. At the bottom of the profile on the left side, you'll see propose a merge. Click and a form will appear. In the slot type Hyder-174. NO SPACES. Click compare to make sure it's the right pair then click the propose. The profile managers still have to approve . If there is no response you have to Wait 30 days.

Hi, Wayne,

Unfortunately, a profile for Jacob Hyder already exists. I have proposed a merge and you will need to approve it and then wait for one of the managers of the other profile to approve. I have removed the rejected match. When creating a profile, if there is an existing profile, you really shouldn't proceed with profile creation. WikiTree's policy and goal is one person-one profile. It takes time to get used to it all but I'm sure you'll pick it up in no time. and this is a great place to ask questions!

Hi Wayne,
My apologies for taking so long to complete the merge. Welcome to the family and big branch of the tree.

Looks like your line needs some document sources. Let me know if I can be of assistance.
