Grrrr unmerged matches whirly-gig

+9 votes

So, in Browse Matches and Pending Merges, I find this:

Privacy Level 60 James McManus (McManus-2683) and Privacy Level 50 James McManus (McManus-8)   Compare compare
Proposed by Peter Jones.
Approval from Earl Wyckoff for McManus-2683 has been recorded.
No response for McManus-8. Default approval.

Look good, so I click 'merge' and this comes up:

An approved merge proposal was found, so the merge can continue.

But then this big red banner:

We're sorry. One of these profiles is not Open and you are not on either profile's Trusted List. Although permission for the merge has been recorded, it would violate our privacy controls to enable you to complete the merge. Please post in G2G if you would like to discuss this. Thank you for understanding.

So how is this merge ever going to happen?

Are privacy rules hamstringing some WikiTree procedures?  again ... grrrrr

And looking at the profiles, both of them indicate death- guess it was set as green to protect one of the (possibly) living relatives? All recorded folk are indicated as deceased.

McManus-8 would be 113 years old. PM had made zero contributions.

You will want to follow the Unresponsive Profile Manager process to get the merge completed.
