Trying to alert Paul to an UNLISTED, asking why is there no "open profile" link at the bottom? [closed]

+4 votes
I have come across unlisted profiles of non-living people (again), but  .... this is weird ... there is no "open profile " link at the bottom of the profile NEXT to them (which is how we are supposed to alert Paul, correct?)

Now what?  (this is a new one)

She was born    October 25, 1880 in Out Rawcliffe 

which is not required to be open.  You would have to ask he profile manager  to change it.


Anyone can view the full profile but only the Trusted List can edit it.
The default for non-living people under 200 years old except when added as nuclear relatives of living people.

Anyone can view the full profile and any member who has signed the Wiki Genealogist Honor Code can edit it. Required for people over 200.

I probably didn't word my question very well.  My understanding is that when there are non-living UNLISTED profiles, Paul would prefer we file the "open profile" form on an adjacent profile.  That's what I was trying to do.  (Then I would, of course, include a note to Paul saying it was the unlisted profiles I am trying to alert him about, not the one I am writng from)

Now, did that make sense?  indecision  This is a difficult question to ask.  It's a weird situation.  I have never seen any profile without the "open profile" link at the bottom.  Have you? 

Chris is right, though we do encourage a more open setting for someone that old, it is not required. You technically shouldn't have been able to see anything about the person if they were unlisted. Asking the Profile Manager is the best approach.
