Someone has gone in and changed and changed and added incorrect information.  It appears to be two Wikitree'rs.

Your profile is set at the privacy level Private With Public Biography. You are the only one who can make changes to it unless you add someone to the trusted list.

Thank you Lynda.  This information was added on as a parents that had not been filed and those parents that were added are already in system.
OK, so if the problem is not with your own profile, would you like to tell us which profile has been changed so that we can try to help you?

Thomas, if I'm reading you correctly, you're asking about changing a privacy level so others cannot edit a profile you manage.  But I'm sure you must have read in some of the site's introductory material that this is intended to be a collaborative venture where we have a single tree with one profile per person, and other descendants are welcome to work on the profiles.  So just be aware that you wouldn't win any popularity contests if you followed through with trying to prevent that.  Anyone who edited a profile would, by definition, be a "Wikitree'r," so the preferred approach would be to contact those members, compare your notes and sources, and try to reach an agreement on what the correct data should be.  If that fails for some reason, and you're sure your info is correct, you can always restore the profile as it was before the edits.
