Where is the list of possible matches between connected and unconnected profiles?

While exploring WikiTree last week (I'm quite new here), I came across a page with possible matches over all of WikiTree. This wasn't just the Browse Matches page, but a special one that showed only matches between connected and unconnected profiles. It was meant for connecting trees into the big tree by merging duplicate profiles. I'm quite sure I came across this page, but I can't seem to find it back. I think it would be quite similar to an overview of the profiles with the DB Error 106, but I can't find that either.

Does anyone know if these kind of lists/pages exists and if so, where I can find them? I would really like to help with this way of connecting people since I hope to connect my own tree in this way too.

Other places to look for unconnected people are ...

- go to the top of a wikitree profile and click on FIND, then go down to UNCONNECTED PEOPLE

- unconnected by country is here ...

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:DBE_Unconnected

- you can go to the Data Doctors project page and look for the latest weekly suggestion report and click on that, then search for SUGGESTION 106 or the word UNCONNECTED.

I always have trouble finding this weekly report because the link changes every week and right now is the changeover time (Tuesday evening EST).

I think I found the overview from Data Doctors about errors involving duplicates. It's one of their challenges: DD Challenge Duplicates II. I think this was what I found earlier too.

Go to your Watchlist and hit Unconnected. This will show you the unconnected profiles that you manage, inlcuding the nunber of profiles they fit together with. To see others you can put a surname in the box above the list.

It sounds like a page that someone put together personally.

It would be nice if it were prominently featured, where we could all contribute to it, and work from it.

I've added a few ideas on 'getting started with connecting', on the England connectors page. (see paragraph 'For Location Connecting')

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:England_Connectors_Team_Page.

Basically, if you run WikiTree+ reports for a particular location, for both connected and unconnected profiles, and then manually compare them, it will help you find duplicates for merging, and family members to link together. I'm not sure it would work for many cities in Belgium, but it might be fun trying.
