I received a couple of email notifications today regarding merges that had been completed:
I can't tell why I was notified of these merges. Initially I assumed that I must have proposed these merges, but I can't find any evidence of that in the pre-merge change histories (nor the messages displayed on the profiles) for any of the four profiles. Indeed, there's no log of anyone proposing these merges. Also, I'm not a profile manager for either person's profile (nor on the Trusted Lists).
Are proposed merges not being logged consistently? Or am I somehow recorded as the proposer of these merges (maybe because I proposed a merge for an ancestor?) even though I didn't propose them directly?
Welcome to WT, Ellen, where it is known that strange and wonderous events occur to confound all PM sooner or later.
Since you did a little cleanup on the Bowditch-6 profile, it was a good thing that you got that email. Little gremlins knew it needed a little more care after the merge!!
That's related to why I thought this could be a "feature."
But I've now added "bugs" to the tags, since I don't think this is by design.
Is OK Gaile, a little sandpaper, some glue, and a coat of paint and you can sell the Old&Decrepit as something Antique and worth 10x the cost of fixing it up.
