Why is this ?
The data is a long list of variants. The system probably hangs while trying to show the list. Even if it showed you the list, it is hard to work with as it gives too much information. If it shown the unnamed variants that are shared like in the old version of the Big Y pages, it would have been easier to use.

Still haven't gotten my dad's Big Y HG38 results

My dad's original Big Y test was calculated in late 2014 but since the HG38 redo, to date he has no matches and no data shown. I recently had another member of one of the YDNA groups I belong to mention that my dad shows up in his Big Y match list. He is a new tester to Big Y. I opened a ticket with FTDNA 2 weeks ago and updated it a couple of days ago and am still getting a generic reply, paraphrased here as "Our IT department is looking into this and has no idea of when this will be fixed for you." Does anyone have any idea of how big a boat we're in? In other words, I read that the percentage with no returns has dwindled- any idea of the percentage now and what quantity does that translate to? Any thoughts of how my late father's results appear on someone else's list (and I have a screenshot of it) and yet there are no results on his own page?

RE "Any thoughts of how my late father's results appear on someone else's list "

I saw that happen to me earlier and then the match went away
I suspect that FTDNA still has 10% of the Big-Y Kits to do.
I am awaiting 2 from my groups.

Big Y conversion to hg38

Are conversion to hg38 results of old Big Y tests still being received?
Any word on why the delay? An y word on when the remaining results may be received? My group is about 85% complete.

They are arriving at a constant but glacial rate. Two arrived
this morning. My project is up to 53/54 in R1a and 149/154
in R1b. All tiny haplogroups (E(1), I(5), and N(1)) are in.

The missing one in R1a is the one they must have run three times, right at the beginning of the BigY, as it has well over twice the usual coverage.
I got run twice and my redo arrived about the middle.

Of "new" orders pending on Oct. 10, 19/29 are in.

Big Y updates

The smallish haplogroup project I help with still has 9 kits waiting for their BigY updates and 6 who ordered new in August that have not yet posted. That is out of 222 total as of October when this conversion process began.

No new results since 12/11.

The good news is that we have 13 (!!!) new BigY orders for this sale already and likely will have more before the sale is over.

AND 10 kits have upgraded to 111 markers so far.

As impatient as I am to see the data from upgrades and the August sale returned, there is still good news.
