Why doesn't the connection finder to A.J. Jacobs work any longer?

+3 votes
So, I used to have about 21 degrees of separation to A.J.  That doesn't seem to work any longer.  Was this special connection finder removed?

AJ Jacobs was removed from the connection finder months ago.

Now you can only connect to him if your connection is less than 10 degrees. Since yours is 21 degrees, you wont be able to see a connection to him unless or until he gets put back into the connection finder.

Oh and since he is still a living person, his profile is now unlisted so you wouldn't be able to connect with him anyway.

The connection finder now can only have names of people who have died. That is why Queen Elizabeth was removed from the Connection Finder as well.

He's not unlisted.  He's right here:  https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Jacobs-2987

I vote we put him back in the special connection finder.
I vote NO.

AJ was in the connection finder in November last year when his book on the global family reunion finally came out.

He does not need to be recyled back into the connection finder for several years.
DUH silly me. Of course AJ is a member of Wikitree. I forgot that. That is why his profile is not unlisted!!
