Additions to Linda (Eastman) McCartney profile

+5 votes
Good afternoon all,

I would love to add some bio, add the rest of her children, a photo, and some categorization to this profile but it’s project protected.

Please let me know if I can help!

Thanks for the feedback all. I have messaged the profile manager and will await her response before I do any edits. I’ve never worked on a PP profile before, so the guidance is much appreciated! :)
Her children are living. They would remain black locked /invisible/unlisted until they die
And if the PM has not responded after a reasonable amount of time, you should feel free to improve the profile.It is almost completely empty, it's not like the PM has invested a lot of time and energy in it.

I would not add the living children, though.

Robin, you can message the PM first. "Major" changes should be discussed first, and I would consider your adds to be major, since they will require sources to be added. Just fixing a birth place spelling or the like would not be major.

Photos should probably not contain her kids, at least on her open page, due to privacy.

Be aware that Project Protected Profiles (PPP) only mean that you can't change certain key characteristics - you can still edit the basic data, the bio, and add photos. You can't change the last name, change the parents, and a few minor other things. So provided you are adding to the profile and not changing some of these PPP items, you should be fine. And as Natalie mentions, it never hurts to let the PM know of your interest as well.
