You and other members of the Scottish Clans Protocol Team are universally acknowledged as experts, yet I respectfully suggest that a lighter approach might be more persuasive. The tone of command might alienate ancestry researchers who would otherwise follow your guidance. Is the term "guidance" viewed differently in the U.K.? In my job, I provide technical guidance to clients, for example, yet it is up to them whether they choose to take it, for any reason (or no reason). You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink.
The stated goals of the Scottish Clans Protocol Team seem too far-reaching. Its authority does not extend to all the countries where Scottish people have migrated. One can see why we had the American Revolution. It's almost like the Stamp Act all over again. LOL.
For example, somebody might call their family seat a "Castle" when it is just a rundown tenant cottage, but to them, it is home sweet home.
The fact that the public records at Scotland's People are so expensive to access, both online and at the research center in Scotland, tends to discourage many people of Scottish ancestry. Our records in the U.S. are more easily accessible on average. This tends to make ancestry research too exclusive. You almost thinks it's a for-profit business rather than a collaboration of distant cousins, as envisioned by most of the clan societies in the U.S.
Many of my father's ancestors left Scotland during the Highland Clearances. In many cases, their homes were burned to make way for sheep.
So I do not have much sympathy for the landlord class, even if some of them might be distant cousins. If I lived in Scotland now, I would favor the SNP or Labour Party over the Tories. The influence of people of partly English ancestry is too great in Scotland. Too many Thatcherites.
Having said that, I feel we are fortunate to have experts on WikiTree, but they are only expert advisors, not "leaders". The German word for guide is Fuehrer, but Americans at least do not go for that. LOL.
A profile manager in WikiTree should always have the last word.
