Why a suggestion for profile not managed by me? [closed]

+3 votes
On my suggestion report I have a few that are for profiles that I do not manage and for whom I am not on the trusted list. I looked for a connection to my profiles but couldn’t find one immediately. Any reason why? Just wondering.

Maybe they just figured that you're a nice person so if they give you something to do, you'll probably do it.
Hahaha! You’re killing me!

And it’s true, Gaile. I did do something about it. smiley

Does it happen to be a surname that you are following?
Actually, no, but both surnames, husband and wife are ones that are in my families. One in my direct line, and the other though marriage. I don’t have tags for either.

Suggestions from MyWikiTree menu will give you suggestions for profiles on your trusted list.

Suggestions from Shepard-### menu will give you suggestions for profiles you are connected to.

From the latter you can find all the suggestions from nasty GEDCOM imports and many other profiles you may not be familiar with.

You may not manage these profiles, but maybe you are on the Trusted List for them.

Hi, Ros. I went to the profiles and checked, but no, I’m not on the trusted list for either the husband or the wife.
Ros, I did notify the profile manager of the discrepancy, though, as that was one of the choices in the suggestions report.
Then you probably manage or are on the Trusted List for profiles who connect with them.  If you only want to see profiles you manage, there is a link on the suggestions page: Profiles managed by Sheppard-2686.
Ahhh, ok, got it. Thanks, Ros.
Oh, Ros, I have a James Thomas Gibson that I manage. The suggestion report was for a James Thomas Gibson, Sr. who is not his father. Could that be it?
