Help merging Ruth Savage (French-8617) with Ruth Eleanor French (French-1958)

+3 votes
I am sure these are the same.  I created French 8617 as a place holder while waiting for merging to French 1958, which includes much of the documentation and photos that I posted to my own Ancestry tree years ago.  The French 1958 profile's owner, Mark Hopkins, has not contributed since January 2017.  I requested a merge on May 6, 2018.  Merge help page stated that a proposed merge is considered granted if unanswered after 30 days, but I still see no merge.

It is against Wikitree policy to create duplicates profiles as placeholders. In future, please follow the appropriate process to gain access to the existing profile.
I tried to follow Wikitree policy, following appropriate processes.  I requested to be placed on Mark Hopkin's trusted list via both public and private messages.  I requested help after that (it was when I had newly joined WikiTree).  No help was provided.  I only added the duplicate when no response was received.  It has been over 2 months since I first attempted to join Mr. Hopkins' trusted list so that I could merge my tree with his.


If I deviated from policy, it was only because I could find no other options, not because I intentionally set out to break policy.  I wrote this because I was seeking help.

The profile in not Open, so can only be merged by the profile managers. You will need to request to be added to the Trusted List of the other profile, and if there is no response from the PM, file and Unresponsive PM report to get assistance.

I requested to join his trusted list in March, with no answer.  I then sent a private message and posted a public message in April, attempting to contact the profile manager.  None of these were answered.  How do I file an Unresponsive PM report?


Thanks for your help!

On the French-8617 profile page, at the very bottom of the text with gold border in the biography section. is "Contact section of the Tree & Tools page".  Clicking on that, opens a page where the last option listed is the Unresponsive PM.  Should get resolved soon.  :)

Thanks again for your help.  I sent the request and am looking forward to researching my grandmother's family lines further.
