Dealing with the invalid when two privacy settings are used

+5 votes

First of all I know that questions like this get asked regarding the inability to merge open and public listed profiles.

My question is of two parts:
1) Are there plans to look into and deal with what is causing this?
2a) If the answer to 1) is yes, can I ask what the estimated timeline is?
b) If the answer to 1) is no, can I suggest that it does?

Yes, I know you can email the admin team to deal with these, but the point is the bigger picture, the respective workloads each of admin has to deal with, the high probability that more questions of this sort of nature gets asked. 

Lets put it this way, I discovered that I had added an array of profiles (which had turned out to be duplicates (which I did not know about because the original profiles had the LNAB and CLN incorrect))

The problem with privacy protected profile is you don't know why they were protected.

Is there a reason such as delicate information on the profile, or was the PM just trying to keep the profile to themselves?

I have a bunch of such merges waiting as well and would welcome a decision that leaders could do such merges on dead people, thus relieving the admins to deal with the living.

Please add the tags improvements, admin and leaders to your post and you may have a wider, more knowledgeable audience to your question.

Good day to you Juha, the oddity with these particular profiles is that they are GEDCOM uploads from 2011 and some of the associated profiles are void of any identifying information
