If I do not have permission as I have not been a member for long enough, does that mean that I should create people and not complete their profiles, or have re do everything after 30 days? [[mentor]]

There IS NO Flax Name Study! Please do not add a category for a Study which does not exist!

by Ros Haywood G2G Astronaut (1.3m points)

Are you sure you didn't ask?  I could have sworn I heard a voice in my head asking that question.  More, it was telling me to quit, now, cold turkey.  No more BDM lookups.  No more trawling Trove and going all surprise surprise over the hijinks of the divorcing couples and the 70-year-old involved in hijinks with a woman at least 30 years younger .. .. ..

Are you SURE that wasn't your voice?  cheeky

(It's ok.  I triple checked the profiles before I hit save.)

I did create the FLAX name study

Someone has helped by fixing it.

So how do I make it public now - as we don't want to be working in the dark, alone or in secret.

Any fixing or guidance always welcome, I'm very green and new.
I would like all that I do to be public - if possible.

I am busy learning and doing a LOT of reading, but one cannot know all in such a short space of time, so please direct me to all the places I need to fix.

On all the pages, we are encouraged to create, even if we have to fix later, so please MENTOR me in all directions.

I really am listening.
Yes, you created it.  You did it incorrectly, using an incorrect page, and not using the official correct process, which is to REQUEST a one name study and have leadership create it for you (including background links).

You were sent a Private Message telling you that you had not fulfilled one of the requirements to lead an ONS.

Wait.  Have patience, and wait.

Thank you for your guidance mentorship and dedication.

First I need direction on how to make EVERYTHING I do public please.

Then what I'm doing wrong.

Thank you again for the love


The Flax Name Study has been locked as Unlisted because you keep using it and working on it - and you have been told that it doesn't exist yet.  It seemed that the only way to get to you beyond G2G posts, PMs (private messages), and comments left on your profile was to lock it.

You have not fulfilled the requirements to lead a Name Study.

At the time, I had not been on WIKI for 30 days and therefore someone unlisted what I had created FLAX ONE NAME STUDY, so I stopped working till my time would be sufficient.
Thank you
I have unlocked it, and it is now operational:

together with its category page, which lists all the profiles within your Study:
This can also be reached by clicking on 'Flax Name Study' among the categories at the foot of the page.
Thank you again!

I will have to begin learning from scratch as I've forgotten much of what I learned, or tried to, some months ago
