The problem with this error is that WikiTree automatically generates these empty profiles when adding a sibling to an existing profile. Most of these errors would be reduced if these profiles were not automatically generated. Just because I know who the siblings are does not mean I know the parents.
There is an error report for unknown father. Actually, I don't know who the unknown father is to be the father of. That file will need to remain an empty one unless it can be deleted.

Error code 802 of Empty profile Horton-59 has either been fixed in the past or is a false error message. I adopted this orphaned profile in June of 2016. There are some children that are managed by Michele West that have not yet been given a biography. If you want to label me with this error than put my name on it. Thank you. Corinne Calvert-862
This notification was included on my error report but I'm not sure why. The link shows Krans-40 and the full name is my grandfather, Evan Krans. The entry takes me to an empty page with Ales Trtnik and Magnus Salgo shown as profile manager. Not sure what to do next. Any thoughts? Thanks

Wikitree creates a father record so that I can add a known sibling. Now these records are showing up as errors because they are empty profiles. I don't have any data on the father and I'm not going to add anything just to get rid of a false error.
