Repeat profile needs removing

I have in the past accidentally made an error in creating https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Davison-2377 when I already have a profile as Creator/Manager.   

So this profile 2377 needs to be deleted.  How do I do that?

My proper profile is Davison-2360

Thanks in advance

See Merging duplicate accounts.

If only one profile is an "active" account profile, i.e. has an e-mail address and password, do the merge as you normally would. Enter the two IDs here.

If both profiles are active accounts with e-mail addresses contact info@wikitree.com.

Hello everyone who answered my query.   I tried the merge but it did not work.

for some reason some of the profiles of my family which I have created, have a black security rating on them.  Davison-2377 is one of these.  Perhaps that is why it doesn't work. ??

I would like to amend all my "black dotted" family profiles to an editable red dot security.   Is that possible?

Thanks.
If profiles are living profiles, they have a black dot and are locked for anyone to see, other than people on the Trusted List, for security purposes.

Hello Linda.

Just merge Davison-2377 into Davison-2360. For more information see

I think that, since this a merge of a living person and a WT account, it needs to go to info@ wikitree.com.
Hello Ross.

Linda is PM on both profiles.

I have just successfully made a test merging a living person profile (managed by me) into my own profile with no issues.

I think there is no need to contact the team.

Yay, it worked.   Thanks everyone.

Now to the other question:

for some reason some of the profiles of my family which I have created, have a black security rating on them.  

I would like to amend all my "black dotted" family profiles to an editable red dot security.   Is that possible?

Yes, it worked.

Thankyou.
