Please help protect well sourced important and early profiles. Why not appoint moderators for early
robert king said: Hi. firstly, I think Family Search is a fantastic collaborative resource so many thanks to those who set it up/run it/volunteer. However, when dealing with entries for persons of historical interest and further back in time (e.g. C17th or earlier) there are obviously many descendants who want to make connections. Unfortunately, sometimes hours of work and inputting of information can be wrecked by those who either don't know what they are doing or don't read the existing sources before merging/deleting/adding impossible alleged issue etc., even when they are already well sourced. It can be quite dispiriting to see hours of painstaking research disappear and it can feel like some sort of battle trying to defend the integrity of a profile. Please consider introducing some sort of monitor system for early and important persons -possibly persons with a 'Moderator' status. It needs to be made more difficult to just post rubbish and wreck the hard work of others. Even a simple, clear, message or warning such as 'Please read attached sources before merging this profile' might help slow the damage. Thanks again for all the brilliant bits. Bob.
