AncestryDNA culling is complete, it looks like

Is that what everyone else is seeing?  

With regard to my shared matches with 6 - 7.9 cMs, I only have what i put in a group or tagged with a note.

I see that some distant cousins who shared their results with me no longer have any matches in that range.  

So i guess it is over - no more chances to save those smaller cM matches.

Hi Shirlea,

Yes - that's what I've seen too. More related conversation here ... https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/1075023/ancestrydna-matching-white-paper.
It was around 3 pm PDT yesterday that I noticed it . . .
Copy across to MyHeritage ?. Data I'm looking at goes down to at least 6.2 cM, but their Autoclusters algorithm seems to stop at 20 cM, which is a pity. Dont GEDmatch and GENi also do this. As is probably obvious, the small segment world is a mystery to me.
Yes my match list went from 56000 to 27500 . Would have been worse if I hadn't used the color tool to mark the ones that shared DNA with some of my stronger DNA matches .

Oh well like a coworker said to me once when the owner of the company wanted everybody to take less pay ...I guess they need it worst then we do ..

Yup, down from about 44K total matches yesterday to about 23K total matches now.

I looked today and don't remember my number from before so I can't tell from number change, but bottom group to chose is 6-20 cm.  could be they just forgot to change that.

I hope they leave it in -- i managed to save quite a few  smaller matches (for chromosome mapping) and i want to be able to sort straight to them....
If you look at your list of 6-7 cM matches, I expect they would all have some evidence that you took some action that would preserve them (e.g. starred or made a note).

I spoke to them on the last day of August and they said they had a large group of users who were adamantly opposed but they were going ahead anyway.  I do believe it was delayed a few hours from the scheduled midnight mountain standard time.  

Of course, I did take the opportunity to suggest that the group opposing this were likely also the ones who want a chromosome browser.  This caused her to literally scream i frustration having to deal with all those folks with what I would consider a reasonable request.
