Who manages a profile after a merge

+4 votes
Sorry, did a G2G search but didn't find an answer to this and haven't had occasion to merge anyone yet.  

Who manages a profile after a merge?  Is the profile managed by both Profile Managers of both un-merged profiles, or managed by the single PM of the profile that the other profile is merged into?

When two profiles are merged, all the managers and Trusted List members from both profiles are combined. If you were a manager before, you'll still be a manager.

There are a few exceptions, such as for Project-Protected Profiles.

More information is available at Help:Merging.

Any who were already Profile Managers prior to the merge become PM of the newly merged profile.

smiley So, there they are, two PM, joined at the hip will they or nil they and in the case of a 3rd profile discovered or created, which then requires merging, they will become Siamese Triplets?  Really? 

Thanks Melanie.  That's what I thought, but couldn't find it written anywhere.  Thanks for the clarification.

I just knew I'd find the answer to this question as soon as I had asked it!

No worries. Happy to have helped.   :)

Steven has given a link to the help for merging (so now my going to find it doesn't matter .. go Steven!), which may be helpful for others asking the same question.
