When MatchBot proposes a merge it should be like any other merge proposal.

The Profile Managers should get an e-mail, which will include a link to compare the profiles side-by-side.

You should also see the match in the "Pending Merges" section of the profile.

I'm not sure why you'd be aware of a merge proposal but not see the two profiles being suggested as a match. How did you hear about it? It's possible that another Profile Manager rejected the match before you arrived at the profile.

I received a matchbot notification through email or that weekly notification, so I must have been one of the PMs. I should have included a link to the merge in question. But I clearly recall no evidence of match activity at the bottom of the page-- suggested or rejected. I'm still on holiday, but will try to dig up the message I received and link to the specific merge in question.
Tried to find/recreate it without success. If I notice it again, you'll be sure to hear from me (with more details this time).
