I think you left out a word in the template's parameters, Joelle. You had

{{Notables Sticker|Illinois}}

instead of

{{Notables Sticker|Illinois Notables}}.

Ok. Thanks  That one out of a buttload of high category naughty list profiles.  I can’t believe I’m the only one dealing with this. WWI stickers are the worst.
I'm not dealing with it because I stopped using stickers a long, long time ago.
kudos to you J!  I'm still willing to deal with stickers, but I dug my heels in on errors, where I refuse to waste my time marking a very long list of instances where profiles I manage do not match the apparently newly minted gold standard of Find a Grave data as false errors.  Now, with categories relegated to beneath the page footer and seeming to constantly change without an efficient way to look them up, I'm less inclined to spend a lot of time chasing down the right ones and figuring out the correct parameter values, but the jury is still out on that - I'm waiting to see if the massive outcry against the new location results in them being moved to immediately below the content of the text box..
I'm right there with you, Gaile.
Gaile, I hear you. I just last week added a family that is buried in one grave and gave as reference to some of them their grave. On FAG the grave is only listed as grave of the head, but the others are visible on the picture on the gravestone. Now children, and children-in-law who are in the grave are marked as "wrong grave connected on FAG". I mean.... a bot cannot see the picture contains all names and dates of the whole family. I only hope it gets it when I mark those as "False Error". It's annoying we have to deal with that stuff at all.

The trick for those is to add |sameas=no to the template call

Problem is that the FaG template doesn't include FaG's citation so a lot of people don't use it.
Thanks RJ, I corrected those.
