I never receive an email with the link. Checked all folders including spam. Deleted and uploaded again 3 times now over the last few months. Any help greatly appreciated. Many thanks. Damon.

There is something strange about the Gedcom status report. Normally when I look at one of these pages, there are links to other pages. Eventuallly a sysop will respond. They aren't quite as responsive on weekends. You can also email info@wikitree.com which goes to the same group of people
Hi Anne,

I was informed recently (might have been by Chris) that occasionally a gedcom crashes due to some odd lines contained within.  This was the case with one the other day; on the gedcom page it showed that the gedcompare was ready but there were no links (like you described).  The advice was to re-work the gedcom at home before uploading again; possibly to try different software.

I hope this trivia is interesting :)

Yep got that and this is where is says it's awaiting for my approval. As I understand it I should receive an email link in order to go through the approval process but I've never had one.
