Adding a Guest Member to a Trusted List [closed]

+5 votes

Do we have a clear policy on this issue, or is the decision simply left to the profile's manager(s)?

Does WikiTree management have any preference either way?

Would a Guest Member be able to remove anyone from the Trusted List?

edit: To clarify my first question, do we have a policy that requires us to add a Guest member to a profile's trusted list when a request is made?

Additional question: as a profile manager, do I have leeway to decide IF I trust a member who has not signed the Honor Code when he/she submits a trusted list request for a profile I manage?

I didn't see the answers to my questions there, Ros.

edit: Thanks for your input!

Lindy, I looked at Ros' link to the description of all the member types and found that guest members cannot create or edit any profiles except their own.  Although that technically doesn't answer the question about whether or not guest members can be on a trusted list, even if they were on a trusted list, they would not be permitted to make any changes to it.

Hopefully, they would not be permitted to be on a trusted list either.  Without absolute clarification, I would say that if a guest member requested addition to the trusted list, your best response would be to turn it down and explain to the member that they cannot work on the profile until they sign the honor code and become a full member.
Thanks for your input, Gaile!

I had, of course, already reviewed that link and related links, but did not find the answers to my policy questions.

My questions are specifically worded to determine if we currently have any policies that address these perceived loopholes.
