Academic search profile stuck RRS feed

  • Question

  • A few days ago, I tried to edit an academic profile tied to my name

    http://academic.research.microsoft.com/Author/50160997/kevin-smith

    But after making those changes, it has been locked for several days. I get the following message when I try to edit it now:

    Updating By Other Users

    Another user is updating the information for Author/Kevin Smith.

     

    You can’t make changes to this Author until the preceding request got verified.

     

    I have a feeling that this has to do with me having a common name. Could you please let me know what I need to do to edit again?

  • Hi Kevin, our system shows this record was edited twice, one happened at 12/1, the other happened at 12/7. The system needs 3-5 days to make the change online, please stay tuned.
