Help:Reducing the Size of Your Watchlist
It's easy to reduce the number of profiles you're managing or following.
We recommend that no Watchlist, including Project Accounts, contain more than 5,000 profiles. Beyond this, WikiTree systems may start to slow down for you. If your Watchlist gets too large, some WikiTree tools won't work for you at all. Most unfortunately, and ironically, this includes the tools that make it easy to reduce the size of your Watchlist.
We recommend smaller Watchlists if you want to be less active on WikiTree. The smaller your Watchlist, the less collaboration you will need to be involved in. Of course, not all profiles require the same level of collaboration. If you only have modern, private family members on your Watchlist you will only need to work with close family members.
Removing Profiles from your Watchlist
The best way to do this is the Bulk Trusted List Changes tool. If your Watchlist is already so large that this tool locks up when you try to use it, contact email@example.com for help.
Unmanaged profiles are OK
Profiles can still be in your family tree
Removing yourself from Trusted Lists has no impact on a profile's relationships. If a person is in your family tree, they will still be in your family tree.
