Hotmatches notification on Home Page

I have several of these notifications on my home page.

They all say I have an unseen match.


I have looked at and discarded all of them.

WHY do they keep listing them as unseen?

Not a huge thing, it's just slightly annoying!

OK, this is a bit of a moan, but I SUGGEST GR do something about it.

I think the notification on the home page stays whether you discard them or not. It is just an indication that they have looked for some and either found them or didn't find any.

My home page tells me that they tried five times since the 3rd August. On three of the times nothing was found. On one there was an unseen match, and on the other there were two brand new matches.

I suspect that the unseen one means that the person whose tree it matched with, discarded it before I even saw it.
