Really useful info like this in a page heading will help many members.  I had read the FAQs and the http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Merging but this gem - the 30 day clock - did not get my attention until I browsed through several pages of questions and found another person who expressed my thoughts http://www.wikitree.com/g2g/65642/waiting-unresponsive-profile-managers-something-merging

I can now browse the list of pending merges and see the message "you can complete this merge" but I think many other members would like to have this drawn to their attention so that the person who initiated the merge would be the best one to complete it.

I typically select drop-down Find, Pending Merges, The next sentence is "The following are from across WikiTree  ....view the merge proposals awaiting action from you"

I think this would be a good place to add a sentence something like "Note - after 30 days of no action you can complete a pending merge."

I often go to "Merges I can complete" after 30 days.  Some are not from my family but are quite obvious.  I will merge them.  If there are any questions, I leave them alone hoping someone who knows the family better can make an accurate decision.  I cannot tell you where I found the information, except I constantly am looking under pending merges to see if there is a merge waiting on me.  I actually hope for a pending merge of my family...it means I've connected to another branch and expanded my family.
