Pre 1700 Badge, Pre 1700 yellow Rectangle, Gedcom clean up is my priority project

New to Wiki-Tree I was entering names from an old handwritten tree, names older than 1700.  Prompted by Wiki-Tree to answer the pre-1700 questionnaire, I did that, the badge showed up, names are up.  

The other day I uploaded gedcom, similar situation, old names, (except another branch) that I have since managed to source.  I entered some names manually, pre 1700.  That was fine, but as I started to enter the sources, the yellow rectangle showed up.   At first I thought, no I've got this badge thingie,  after the third time, I thought, I should click it and see what it says,  then I read mention of needing to do things in a project.  The only project in the next few weeks for me is cleaning up the Gedcom mess.

One of the entered names needs a merge.  The other profile manager says "all good".  But is it?   Not keen to take on another project for the sake of 1 merge and 4 - 5 new names already added, but every time I add the source, the yellow submarine resurfaces. cool

The 'project' it is talking about is any pre-1700 project to which the profile belongs.  You are part of the England Project, which is pre-1700.

It does not mean a personal project you are taking on.  It means one of WikiTree's Projects (to see the sort of thing, click on Find - top right - and click on Projects)

You will see the yellow banner every time you save a pre-1700 profile.

The point I was making was that I did not want to join anything additional, if that was the requirement.  I wouldn't know, so I asked the question.
