My attempt to create a one person profile is wrong. It is now Mordahonepersonprofile. I can't find a place to edit or delete and start over. Help.

Hi Claudia,

Would this happen to the be the page in question: Mordah: one name profile, or is it possibly Mordah Name Project?

It appears that you are looking to create a One Name Study. Hopefully Ros will be by to assist you shortly.

You need to add the category [[Category:One Name Studies]] at some point so it appears in the index with the other one name studies.  Since I've never done a one name study, I could be wrong about that, but it seems logical.

Good for you for trying and reaching out when you saw you needed help! Looking forward to seeing your project develop :)

Thanks. I have a way to wonder into areas where "angels fear to tread." I tend to read how to do it first and then do it the way I remember it said. WRONG.
I'm the same way, Claudia! For the life of me sometimes, even with someone walking me through it, I just can't get it through my thick skull, then (hopefully) my light bulb goes on.

Yes, I'm here, Steven! smiley

Claudia: do you remember in my other post when I said that when you 'Add New Thing', you choose 'one name study' to get all the categories right?

I have sent Trusted List requests for all the pages (I think) so I can sort this all out.

Thanks so much. Not to selfish but I was looking forward to a badge. Have I done enough to get one?
Why, yes, Claudia, you will have a badge.

Please re-read my answer below and sign up following the link I gave you, (and don't forget the new Mordah Name Study URL I also gave you!).

Then Sarah Heiney (Project Leader) can give you a badge and create the redirect.

OK, I have created the Mordah Name Study.  It is at https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Mordah_Name_Study

I still need Trusted List access to https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Mordah:%20one%20name%20profile

so I can merge it into the new Mordah Name Study.

Then you will need to post to
https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/618358/would-you-like-to-create-a-one-name-study-join-the-project

with your new Mordah Name Study URL (above), so that Sarah Heiney can create the necessary redirect so that your ONS will appear as a little button on the surname index page here
https://www.wikitree.com/genealogy/MORDAH

It already appears in the One Name Studies project index here
https://www.wikitree.com/index.php?title=Category:One_Name_Studies&from=M

Now I'm going to bed.  It's nearly 11pm here in England! *yawns*
