Need help with merges that will not let me complete them.

+6 votes

I have a bunch of profiles that are either approved by both sides or have been long enough for a default merge. They will not let me merge them. Is there someone who can override the privacy issues and merge them so they are completed?

There are over 2500 merges that fall into this category, due to privacy issues, the ONLY people who can merge those profiles are Wikitree Team Members.   You are not alone in this frustration.   When they are important to fix in my personal line, I send the information to info "at" Wikitree and they usually get merged.

Hello Lisa.

The WikiTree team is working on some improvements to the system to fix this kind of issues. Please see the following post (Especially what Abby Glann commented below the answer):

Adding tags like "sysops" and "privacy" to your post may help to get the attention of the right people.

She wants to merge ye!low and orange lock profiles with

various managers

There is a very odd one Eddie:

Lisa is the PM of the yellow profile, she proposed the merge on Feb 25 2018, approval for the yellow profile has been recorded but there is no deffault approval for the Open profile because the other involved profile is not an Open one, notwithstanding the approval for the yellow profile has been recorded.

The ones with no death dates will go black lock-unlisted next week anyway.
