Hi N,

There should be a edit under the question if it is your question. You will than see a spot that ask for a profile ID. Of which you just post the profile ID in question for example your profile ID is Gauthier-2258. As Karen kindly pointed out copy and paste works great so there no spelling errors. Or you can always post a comment with a link after the question.
Thanks Steve. You did what I am asking about and have seen many times here. Go into someone else's question and recategorize it, add tag or profile. That is what I want to learn how to do, so I can add a profile link to someone else's question. I don't see an edit option for someone else's question. so how do I add the profile link ?

Hi N.

The G2G Moderators project covers the specifics on moderating G2G. The Edit tag only shows if you are the OP (Original Poster), A Leader or moderator.  If you have specific interest in the G2G Moderators project I would recommend you checking out G2G Moderators Project The information posted on the project page will give you all the information needed. 

Best of Luck

No I am not interested in joining the moderator's group. I am just trying to find out how I can add a profile link to someone else's question, as I have witnessed others do. And I thought it would be helpful to others to be able to access the profile.

I don't feel like anybody has replied clearly to that question ... so can I ask if you are trying to tell me that as a regular wikitree user, I am NOT allowed to add a profile link to someone else's question ?

If so, I am not complaining, I am just trying to learn what the rule is.

Thanks for trying to help :)
Yes, That would be correct. Although I do appreciate your desire to want to be of help. I'm a regular wikitree user also just have a few g2g permissions :)

Shouldn't the best answer be chosen by the questioner ?

copy and paaste is NOT the best answer because it does not address my problem at all. i am trying to learn how to make adjustments to other people's questions.

Hi N,

Dale Byers gave an intriguing answer here for Best Answers. Although this answer is not definitive it may help you gather an opinion.

Best Regards 

And if you do get another answer that definitely is better you can always choose that one. The only thing I wouldn't want to encourage is ongoing wars over what's the best answer.
Sorry you feel that way, i thought that was the easiest way, maybe my answer was helpful to others. I hope you manage to get the answer you need.

Good Luck and best wishes
