Not finding results of uploaded Gedcom

Yesterday I uploaded a small tree (32 profiles) centered on Lawrence Beesley 1877-1967 (ancestors and descendants). He was a Titanic survivor and it was my intention to add him to the Titanic Project. The Gedcom was processed and I went through all the duplications, completing each one. I figured it would take some time for it to come on board, but today, none of the profiles are here. I have done this many times, but maybe I missed something. Does it take more time? I can easily upload it again, but want to check before doing so.

I read some related questions, so I checked my contributions list. The Gedcom upload does not appear. I did get the email saying it was ready, but in my confidence, I deleted the Gedcom when I was finished.

You started out right, you went through and checked for suggested matches and worked on those. Then you should have seen an "Add" link on each one of the profiles in your list. You should have clicked on that link and added the profiles one at a time to WikiTree. 

You cannot any longer upload a gedcom and have all of the profiles added at once automatically. For more information on how to work with the new system see Gedcom Help.

The new process is what I meant and what I did. However, it looks like I checked off all the duplicates and failed to hit the "Add" link on each one. Duh. I'll try it again.
Just a reminder not to click the Complete radio button to the left of each entry. That tells the software that you are done and you won't get the Add button.

Its been a while since I've gone through the process of uploading a gedcom, and the process has changed and improved since then too.

But as far as I know, the process is still a two-step process:

  1. compare and check for duplicates
  2. do the actual import (now, only one profile at a time)
