Reversing un-sourced changes for Sarah Unknown-233276 and related profiles.

+5 votes
A new member to WikiTree has self-certified as pre-1700 and in the matter of a few days has created many duplicates with apparently no effort given to finding easily found existing profiles, and editing project protected files with no discussion on G2G or with profile managers.  Also on at least one profile gave a source as "United States Federal Census" for a person who was born in 1665 and died in 1732.

Absent any objections, I will be reversing all undocumented changes to Sarah's profile and related profiles that I mange which were made by this individual.

Thanks, Daniel.  Way to go.
Thanks for catching those, Daniel, and for helping get the duplicates cleaned up this morning. That was our former member who has done this before. They will probably keep trying *sigh*

Hi Daniel, 

While this is certainly frustrating, I think this would be better addressed in a private message to the person making the changes. Maybe you can help them out with hints on finding sources and point them towards the Sources Help page. In the meantime you can certainly use the Changes log to undo changes with no source.

Mindy, your comments would be appropriate if this were truly a first time occurrence.  Unfortunately, there is a long history here.
