Check again tomorrow.  The unconnected profiles made today should be connected tomorrow.

But the profile was never unconnected.  The profile was connected at the time it was created.

Is this another one of these things where “connection” doesn’t mean “connection” in WikiTree, but it means something else?

Yes, it is a case of "connected" doesn't always mean connected.

If you have a stand-alone profile (that is, one that has NO connection to the greater Tree even by way of marriage), you may be able to connect profiles to it, but they will still not be connected (to the greater Tree).

Profiles are considered WikiTree "connected" once they are connected in some way to the greater Tree - and you'll know that because the three anchors will show at the bottom of the page approximately 24 hours after you make the link up.

I suggest the creation of the WikiTree dictionary, with connected/unconnected being its first entries.

The connections do not show up right away. It will take about 24hrs for the system to show the connection was made and clear it from your unconnected list.
