removing unmerged matches

+2 votes

I'm new at this topic.  I find Dotson-1647 and Dotson-371 and their spouses: Nutter-516 and 281, to be unqualified matches!.  There are a few missing entries of little significance but NO conflicting pertinent data .  They are on unmerged matches status and I don't understand why.  I would like to remove that condition and merge these obvious matches.  Can I do that, or must someone at a "higher pay level" do it?

It's hours later and it wasn't done yet so I did it for you.  They are now reinitiated in new merges, spouses as well.  Good luck!
As long as you're satisfied with the BIOs, Sources,etc.

Thanks

You can remove the unmerged match.  Once it is removed you can suggest they be merged.
Caution is warranted.  Did anyone post a reason for why they should not be merged?  Sometimes there are clues in the message boxes on the profiles.  Were they marked as rejected merges a long time ago? (several yrs)  If they were recently marked as rejected matches, you should have a very kind dialog with the other pm. When I propose a merge, I offer to help clean up after and try to assure the parties that the information will be kept.

So no, no higher pay level, but just use caution, as merges cannot be undone.

I've found it very worthwhile to ask the PM(s) involved why it's an unmerged match.  Sometimes, it's simply a case where conflicting information has since been reconciled, but the need to merge the profiles got lost in the shuffle.
