Wikitree links in gedmatch are gone.

I can only hope this is only a temporary glitch, but a short while ago, every single wikitree link in gedmatch has vanished.  WIth my profile, and both my parents.  When I look at the One to Many DNA comparison, there used to be about 40-50 profiles with wikitree links.

Earlier tonight they were all there.  Now every single one, including my own is now gone.

And it appears that the means to enter a wikitree link has also been eliminated.

I was a big fan of the wikitree links in gedmatch.  If they've removed it permanently,  I'll be extremely disappointed.

 

It's bad enough that 99% of the people there, won't respond to any query of any kind, making the site all but useless.....

Has anyone else noticed the same problem?

I've logged out twice and logged back in, each time it's the same.

I hope it's only temporary.

Yes, the Wikitree links do seem to have disappeared from GEDmatch.  It's been at least an hour now....

Like you, I hope they come back soon.  Sure wish they'd explain when they change things like that.

Just an update, since this was posted last night and some people may have missed it.

Anyone who is posted a link to their wikitree profile in gedmatch, that link has been deleted.  It also appears, they've changed it, so no one can submit one now.  

It happened last night and still is in effect this morning.  

Unless it's a temporary glitch, it appears that gedmatch has ceased all cooperation with wikitree.

I'd noticed that too. I was assuming that I was doing something wrong.
