I should - and is - be much easier to find collaborators to merge profiles, but there is still a few managers with very few (if any) collaborators, we stil nead to make merge requests in the discussions.
Can anybody help me with:
Ken Rice:
Eduardo Lobo Cabral de Mello:
Michael Hungate:
Ole Helle-Broe:
Jean-François BLANC:
Fountain-Filson Lang :
Randall Royce Reed:
Billie Key
Frank Stuart Hagan
Loyd Alan Newman

The listed links is only exmples
Please list if you can merge any of these I'll then make a dedecated discussion

And please make a list of your own.

Would it help if we added a collaborators module to user profiles?

It would help a lot especially in finding collaborators which might be more collaborative, - but a Cancel button should be first priority so people can starting using the new merge feature without having to go through the huge pile og merge requests.

I would like to be able to cancel a merge request without undoing the merge. Then I would be able to request the merge from an active collaborator.

Henn Sarv has access to Ole Helle-Broe. I submitted a request to him for the profile you have listed.

Noah, yes would be a big help. But please do consider Bjorn's idea re: the cancel button. Anything to make life easier when it comes to merges and weeding out uncooperative or disinterested collaborators! :)

Please strongly consider Bjorn's idea.

I had to undo 2 or 3 huge stacks to remove incorrect merges. There is someone who is making all kinds of merges that should never have been done. I cannot remember this persons name at this time.

@Günther Kipp:

Eduardo Lobo Cabral de Mello appears to be friends with Pablo Benítez Barreto and may be collaborating with him. Try sending Pablo a direct message... he tends to respond better when you write to him directly. Also... you might want to try using Spanish if you can.

Dawn Packness Illingworth Mcfarlane appears to be friends with Bjorn Brox.

@Private User: Do you collaborate with Dawn Packness Illingworth Mcfarlane?

I am collaborating with Pablo but he did not show up with pending merges of Eduardo de Mello ; no one did

4/8/2010 at 8:10 AM

@ Noah; regarding your suggestion wouldn't it be some kind of violation of privacy and could also backfired at us; perhaps then people will stop collaborating with us?

4/8/2010 at 8:11 AM

or maybe I don't understand your suggestion very well

sorry i don't see anyone i can help with...but i will look again just in case...those are some pretty big stacks...wonder if they really did have 35 children lol

From the list I believe I am collaborating with Randal Royce Reed, and for James Frederick Pultz you can contact either Kerry Lee Cunningham or David Kaleita and for Jean Francoise Blanc:
Shelley Chrystal Mactyre
Bjørn P. Brox
Jason Scott Wills
(I keep my own list near the pc)

Anybody collaborating with this person?

Terje Berger

I have requested many times with no response.
He/she appears many times in my tree around the Arundell/Stradling family lines. I would dearly love to have someone help me resolve the merges.

Private User
4/9/2010 at 2:51 AM

This person: Private User?
Nope - and not even a pending collaboration on him.

Could you send me one of the pending merges with his profiles, - I might be more lucky in getting collaboration.

I you don't have any pending merges with his profiles, - leave it and let him have his profiles alone. We have enough pending merges to deal with already.

I have started to hate the hot-match functionality, and especially that people are complaining about hot-matches they cannot resolve. If people want to get connected THEY can take contact with you. It is better to concentrate on existing problems and not to bring in new.

Do someone have collaboration with Linda Mae Fox:

Private User
4/9/2010 at 3:21 AM

Nope, - but I got some of her deceased public profiles yesterday, probably automatically released by the over one year since last login rule.

Again an example of common collaborators that not is listed as an option...

Anyone who have a support ticked on this one and can update it with more examples?

4/9/2010 at 4:05 AM

But not all? ;-((

Was for Bjørn on Linda Mae Fox:

4/9/2010 at 7:17 PM

I still new this Linda Mae Fox was one of OPEN unmanaged proiles... when I searched for link... so I hope I can help, I read somewhere some one could take over unmanged files, so I click on her's and doubled my profiles and I belive I added a lot of data to my AUnt June's Tree, I feel a little shakey(new to this SIte) If any of you Olllllllddddd timers pitch in Ideas, have at it... Linda Mae Fox on her Profile is Deceased, But another Linda Fox(is deceased, and Gunther and myself can not look at C Denmark Profile....(I work for a security company) It has been a long day....) Thanks for any help that can be given or if you need help let me know...

4/10/2010 at 3:14 AM

I think the probles is, that you haven't taken over the living profiles of Linda, meening that we still have problems with zombies like Christian IX of Denmark.
I think you need to write to GENI help once more!!
I could only find one Linda Mae Fox, but several Linda Fox.

4/10/2010 at 4:01 AM

I think every one of us should make there own private list on hanging/pending merges, then we could public them here.
And thereafter ask GENI for help on the remaining unsolved - What do you mean Noah?? How can we help to get help??

4/18/2010 at 1:28 PM

New un coorperative manager!!
Try to look at this profil: Private User
I can't see this profil status, and can't sent any request, what is going on??

Private User
4/18/2010 at 5:11 PM

Hi Gunther,

Gunther any luck with Private User ? I can request to collaborate or add to family group (just checked the profile), and will do this if you are having no luck, but think Geni should do something immediately to make all these profiles without a manager's name or those masquerading as historical people open to merge. They are so frustrating!

There is a problem with Anne Hyde (Duchess of York)
Anne Hyde, Duchess of York

She is shown as being married to one of her sons 'James the Pretender'

I am having similar problems with the 1st Earl of Suffolk, who I have as Thomas, but who is William elsewhere, and consequently is apparently his own brother. It's such a mess, and I haven't dared to do anything to his profile as yet...sigh!!
