Need help removing incorrect category and sticker for 1776 [closed]

1776 was added to a profile in error. Apparently this also added the sticker American Revolution. There is no source that the category actually applies to the profile.   Will simply removing {{1776}} from the profile remove both the category and the sticker?  Does this need to be done by the project or can the PM take care of the issue.?

OK tagged the profile.  The problem is this apparently came in with one of the various merges.  There is no actual template there to remove just {{1776}}.  The project does not manage this profile.  The source that was provided is for a different man by the same name. For some reason I was recently added as a manager, so am trying to clean up the profile and add sources.

Removing the template will remove the category and the sticker from the profile. To ensure all who may be interested see this, you should tag the profile in the Question.

1. Does a project account exist as a Manager of the profile? If so, then you should consult with the project before any changes are made.
2. If no project account exists on the profile, and the contributor is not a normal editor to the profile, and did not provide a source, it will be OK to remove the template. I would also leave a comment on the profile in question asking that before the template is added back, that it be sourced and verified first.
