Need to reverse Merge White-43591 into White-43592

+3 votes
I added my cousin White-43591 and then asked her to join. She joined but added a new profile White-43592. I am on her trusted list. Can someone please let me know how to get Wikitree to leave White-43592 the way it is?

Hi Mary,

If I understand you correctly, I think the same thing happened with my brother: I created a profile and used it to send him an invitation.  He misplaced the email and simply joined as a new member, so he had two profiles.  I was the profile manager for one, and he managed the other.  We simply merged the duplicate profiles.

I then removed myself as profile manager from his profile, but I'm still on his trusted list, and I think I also bulk-added him to the trusted list for various profiles on my watchlist.  

Is that the same situation you and your cousin are facing, or am I missing something?
Not sure what you mean by 'reverse merge.'  There are currently two profiles, one Unlisted and one yellow locked.  If they are duplicates, they need to be merged.  The result will have the lower number, but it can be edited to have the same info, sources, and privacy settings as White-43592.

What Herbert Tardy says is correct,

The same thing happened with me, My sister joined up and created her own profile, and I had to merge her new profile with the one I had previously made for her.

All merges must go to the lower numbered profle but all the information can be saved and will NOT be lost.
