So what you are saying is that there are NO matching done when I have uploaded my FamilyTree the first time? I have to upload it, make changes on my PC and upload it again before I can have any matches?
I do have to say that you have NOT answered my question at all, just telling me how your server handles matches.
Ok I'll do some changes in the trre and re-upload it and we will see what happens,
I`ve had that same problem for about a week now - All my smart-match disappeared both on my treebuilder and on my web-site. I used to resive about 15-25 e-mails pr. day with smart-matches, but now i don`t get any ?
And the new Record-match shows about 10 match - but when i open the record match there are none?
I really hope that MyHeritage can solve the problem - i don`t hope that i`ll have to re-build a new tree with over 7000 relatives.
I was wondering the same thing, although it's only been a week for me. But I kind of feel like I got ripped off because I upgraded to premium just for this purpose. My tree is on another genealogy website and it has hundreds of thousands of record matches, so I can't believe that the same tree here is not finding anything. I guess I'll just keep waiting.
Please note that for big trees as yours the Smart Matches might have a small 'delay' since they are recalculated and updated every time the person makes a change on his/her tree.
I have manually updated your smart matches, so if in 48 hours you still cannot see any Smart Matches, please contact me again.
Hope this helps. Please do not hesitate to contact me for further comments or questions.
I have manually updated the smart matches on your trees as well. Please wait 48 hours without publishing or updating them, and after this period you still cannot see any Smart Matches, please contact me again.

I can only answer for myself. I have about 200 confirmed matches from others awaiting my confirmation. However I can not confirm most of them since the data in the smart matches are not conclusive. I.E I have a wife and huspand with children and the matching tree supose to have the wife, sibblings and her parents whom I know nothing about. Also dates and places are missing so how can I confirm such a match.
In turn I have confirmed 20000 matches awaiting others confirmation. So sometimes I wonder why I bother to confirm at all as it is now.
I would like an option to mark smart matches as Unsure so I know I have handled the match but need more information and in that way also be able to filter out the once that are new to me.
Count yourself lucky, I've got 3,908 unconfirmed. That's with filtering repeated trees, basic trees, and trees not updated since 2011. Many people have gotten frustrated with the whole thing and don't even participate in smart matches anymore. Some don't worry about the matches, some don't see them. Then some use smart matches on Family Tree Builder and are not aware that they also have matches on the web site.
I'm one of the ones who became so frustrated with the "stupid matches" that I turned them off. The "development" team certainly doesn't develop ANYTHING. They seem to be concentrating on tweaking things no-one wants and ignoring the problems that people have been complaining about for years.
I doubt very much I will be renewing my premium membership. And they can't auto-renew my credit card because I used the Discover one-time online use number and that number will be rejected if they try to put it through
Im trying to work out smartmatches and how to use them best. I have a few qeustions.
If I choose to ignore smartmatches from a familytree on my website, does it have any affect on the suggested smartmatches in FTB?
Is there any kind of integration between the smartmatching on FTB and the one on my website? if yes - what?
How can i change my FTB, so I can see what smartmatches I have ignored or even better, so I can't see them at all in the list? when you look at the smartmatch list for all familymembers it tells you how many there are and how many you have confirmed for each familymember. Every time I work with smartmatches in FTB i spend a lot af time cheking om matches I have allready rejected, but I can't see that untill I open the detailed list for each person.
I look forward to the optimized searchengine, that I have been reading about, but I hope you will also find time to look into usabilty concerning the smartmatches, both in FTB and on the webside.
