Project Protected with no Project as Profile Manager [closed]

+5 votes

I came to William de Mortimer from his son, and saw he is unsourced. Francis Blomefield in ''An Essay Towards A Topographical History of the County of Norfolk'' has some detail on William, enough for me to write a bio. The profile is project protected, but without a project added as profile manager. I'm assuming he belongs in British Royals and Aristocrats, and I'm announcing my intention to start his bio.

The change history shows that this profile was project-protected a couple of years ago, immediately after a correction was made to the LNAB. I'm virtually certain it was protected to protect the LNAB. This was before project accounts were required for PPP profiles, and I suppose the Leader who protected it forgot to add the project box.

This should be adopted by a project, probably Euroaristo, In the meantime, since it's an unsourced profile  with no text content, I don't expect that anyone will object if you add good sourced content.

I've removed the PPP on the profile and that of his wife and placed a EuroAristo sticker on them.  The EuroAristo project doesn't need to manage the profile, but it's nice to have a sticker in case someone unfamiliar with the project has a desire to join it.  Thanks for bringing this to our attention, as well as putting information and a source on it.

Think it was given protection because of the problem with the wife?

Perhaps, but she doesn't have a Project as PM either. Maybe these should really have project stickers?
