I've been contributing to WikiTree for about six months now, and I am still feeling my way around, trying to learn the ropes.
The last few weeks I diligently researched the Gassmann family of Birlenbach, Alsace, and after I finally figured out all of the connections, I was ready to put them into the tree. When I got to Gaßmann-153, I was surprised to see that I needed to check for the existence of a pre-1700 project before I could upload. I dutifully sent a message, and after that even though I have not yet received a reply), the profile was accepted.
I then tried to enter information about his father, and I got the same message, but this time I am blocked from continuing. I find this both frustrating and puzzling, since back in the early days (Nov 2017) I managed to create both Gassmann-107 and Gassmann-109 without any problem. Did the policy change in the last six months? Why can I now add one profile, but not the other? Am I missing some subtle differences between these profiles? Am I now at the mercy of a (most likely non-existent) project manager before I can continue?
What should I do?
