Ebot added a source that was already on a profile.  I want ebots removed or to be able to add a note to it which it does not allow.

Do you have a profile as an example? I'm not exactly sure what you mean. EditBot (ebot?) isn't going anywhere and only removes/renames things input by a human WikiTree team member.

Hi Debra, the only way sources get added is by users. A source might get duplicated if it is on two profiles that then get merged and the person doing the merge doesn't remove the duplicated info. Or sometimes people will add a version of a source that is free to access, if the one already on the profile is from a pay site like Ancestry. Wikitree is a collaborative site so we shouldn't be preventing people from adding sources. If it is an exact duplicate, just remove it.

EditBOT definitely didn't add sources. Probably it did some edit. Can you provide the profile, so I can take a look at change history.
