Cannot identify problem - Suggestion 885: Using Top Level Category

+6 votes
I received this error but can’t see how to fix it as I’m not actually using that category on the profile concerned.  

Is it because of the sticker?  If so, can someone please advise what the correct adjustment is to clear the suggestion.

Can someone please direct me on what to do?

I believe you are correct that the sticker is the cause of the suggestion.

You will probably need to consult The Great War Project for guidance on how to correct the suggestion.

Add a tag for great_war to your question to get their attention.

Just about everything that was ok last week is an error this.

If you can figure what category his actual unit was you can add that to the sticker. Otherwise it kicks it to the larger category and generates an error. I wish that would change. Right now if you don’t know the exact unit or can’t figure the exact name of the category for the unit you can’t honor someone who served with a sticker. That doesn’t seem right to me.

It ism Australian Army, World War 1 that is a High level category which needs to be cleared.
Hi Marion

No, it’s the sticker.

Frankly I’m fed-up with these endless changes to categories and resulting suggestions.  I’m going to remove all stickers and categories from profiles that I manage which are generating them. I may or may not re-apply them in the future.
