Normally where I find two profiles who are the same person I can drag them onto each other in resolve duplicates in tree view and then request the merge even if I can't complete it. Now I am finding that after I have dragged one onto the other and hit "MERGE DUPLICATES" I get:
You don't have permission to view this page.
See http://www.geni.com/discussions/80793?msg=892777 where this was reported. Curators kindly completed two specific merges, but left the wider error issue unresolved.
Not being able to generate a merge request is a bug. It means there is no audit trail on the profile of a merge request being made.
