Proposed merge after 30 days

+8 votes

On May 26, I  proposed a merge of Benoit-139 and Benoit-615. After 30 days there was no response from profile mangaer of 139, so I expected the automatic merge to be available. So on June 26th I tried to merge them so all my efforts resulted in a new prospoed merged with a new date of initial proposal of June 26th!! NOW I HAVE TO WAIT ANOTHER 30 days!!!! What am I doing wrong????

There's no sign of a fresh proposal.  Did it say the merge had been approved?  If not, then the auto-approval never happened.  In that case, the clock won't have restarted.

The original merge request appears to have occurred on  May 27, 2015, with a comment, but now it says Jun 25, 2015 and I don't see any comment associated with this date.

It did not say merge approved but I think the clock restarted because it says "Last updated 2015-06-25 22:31:28." 

  1. what can I do to get these fellows merged??....this is what it says:
  3. Privacy Level 60 Claude Benoit (Benoit-139) and Privacy Level 60 Claude Benoit (Benoit-615)   Compare compare
    Proposed by Mary Beth Mylott.
    Someone from Benoit-139's Trusted List needs to approve. Help 
    Approval from Mary Beth Mylott for Benoit-615 has been recorded. 
          If Benoit-139 and Benoit-615 are different people, reject the merge.

You could

get the thread moved under WikiTree Tech and somebody will look at it

get a Leader to approve the merge


reject the pending merge, remove it, start again, wait 30 days and hope it works this time
Thanks to RJ Horace

this is the 5th or 6th merge I have proposed and they never seem to go very smoothly. It's been frustrating.
It sure would be nice to have a response from Tech as to why this happens and how it can be avoided.
