what to do if you ask a profile manager a question about adding the Notables tag and they don't reply?

Hi I emailed the profile manager of Julia Child (McWilliams-675) about adding Notables to her profile. After a couple of weeks without a reply I posted a question on Julia's profile page on July 5 2019 complimenting the profile and offering to add the Notables sticker. Today, July 8, 2019 I went ahead and added the sticker because the profile manager never replied to me. Did I do the right thing? Look at Julia's profile. It's well done and interesting and you might be surprised at some of her accomplishments besides being a great chef.

I tweaked it a bit - should be the Notables Sticker (not the project), since the profile is Open and the Notables Project is not PM for the profile.

Thanks for adding Notables to the profile!
Alright Scott, Thanks. I understand the difference between the sticker and pm now too.

John, thank you for doing everything you should have done for the Julia Child's profile.

You contacted the profile manager, twice and didn't receive a response. (Whether an earthquake or medical emergency, we have to be courteous at all times and follow the rules on WikiTree).

You proceeded to enter what you thought was the correct sticker.

Scott Fulkerson was very kind in explaining the rules for Notables and the correct sticker.

Everything is now done and her profile is correct.

Thank you for taking the lead in getting this done. All of this was done with cooperation and collaboration.

What a Monday!

Bless you both!

Thank you Juha for selecting my answer, and giving me a Star!
Yes, thank you to both of you. That was the best answer and shame on me for not giving you the star myself. I've just been busy with other endeavors.
Thank you John. That was very nice of you. I know all about being busy. You are so sweet.

Her profile page says she lives in California. They just recently had earthquakes. So she might not have internet at the moment.

I'm not sure why you would need to ask. Julia Child is a household name. I highly doubt that anyone would say otherwise.

I wasn't asking if she was notable. I try not to add things to profiles without asking the profile manager first just out of courtesy. What I was asking is since I tried to contact the profile manager over the last month and did not get a reply back, was it proper to go ahead and add the sticker myself. I know it's allowed, nobody "owns" a profile, I just wanted to know if I followed proper etiquette, so to speak. Thanks for your comments everybody.
