Ok so I have this one ancestor that his profile has a source that is not going down in sources but up in the biography - and I want to fix it but this one is not mine and the biography is done with all those colons and sources with names and I do it the other was with the source right in the ref tags - so which way should I fix it?  I can see I need a colon before the part I wrote there at the top - oh and I put in a category but did not see an option for second batillion just numbered regiments and this category is there but I guess I need a sticker too - oh and apparently I can not spell battilion batilion  well I tried

Looks like a GEDCOM created bio. I cleaned up the sourcing a bit, but the bio is still rough.

I'd follow Steve's suggestion, given below.

Hi Navarro,

I would suggest contacting the Profile Manager. They seem to be somewhat active within the last few months. If you don't get any response see Unresponsive Profile Managers Alas, together I'm sure you can figure out how best to continue with the profile. See Be Bold or Be Polite? yes As for adding stickers See: Rules on adding and removing cool

I'll just add the the "See Also:" is being used incorrectly on this profile.  Per the source help pages, anything under there should be additional references not cited in the narrative.  It now includes the details of the cited source.

Well I fixed it up some - had forgotten about this question from long ago - I know I have far more on this line in my notes - saw it when I was looking for something else - maybe fix that up this weekend too
