Nonresponsive Profile Managers

+6 votes
54 views

Not asking for help or such, but just need to vent some frustration.

So many times (TNTC = too numerous to count) when I am comparing individuals to ones in my watchlist I find them "with a green mark" where one must be on trusted list to add detailed info.

I send requests to be added to trusted list, but get no response or approval.

Have been the route of personal email and that does not work either.

I have requested the same for many other profiles and gotten great responses - just some don't respondNot sure why: pride of ownership, worried that some info in a profile as listed is incorrect, ........

Again, I'm not asking for help - just had to vent a little bit before I jus blow up!

John,

At the bottom of every profile page there is the link that Anne gave you. I think there was a new rule stated on the unresponsive manager form,  that after 30 days, a merge that you have proposed and has not been responded too by the other manager will automatically default to you to merge.

Thank all of you for the good advice.  That will help with merging, but what about cases where you have hard info about a specific profile which would help correct some points and help to know more about the specific individual and it's coded with a "green" code (correctly applied I might add)?

Have requested to be on trusted list (no response); have added info into the slot for info or questions about the individual, but it's never acted on.

Have sent private email to profile manager (no response)

One thing that could be done (I suppose) is create another profile and then go thru the process to merge.  Seems like a waste of resources to do that, but it would get it to a point where the auto default merge would apply.
