Question Pink Bnnner: Haplogroup predictions are currently being updated using new data.....

I have a new pink banner displayed at the top of my dashboard stating "Haplogroup predictions are currently being updated using new data. Your haplogroup prediction may change upon completion."

Is this related to the March 2015 changes noted in this thread? Or is this a new change? And if so, meant specifically for me or testers in general?

EBHill, the pink banner is showing on my father's dashboard, and he's already taken a Z253 panel to get down to R-L1308 - confirmed, not predicted.

So I think it's a blanket notice. I can't exactly recall the last time I logged in to his account, but no more than a couple of days ago, and it wasn't there then.

I manage ten FF kits, and only two of them have pink banners. They are both completely locked down ... can't do anything with them.

Yes, it would be nice to have more explanation from FTDNA (ETA etc.)...

I do not see the pink banner on females (obvious) and those who took Big Y (good).

Pink banner is now gone from my father's account, and I had time to check two more accounts for males whose kits I manage. They did not have pink banners; one has tested for Y, the other only Family Finder.

No changes, either, to the two that had Y haplogroup designations assigned.

In my case, the pink banner is gone on non-Big Y Y-DNA67 testers, too.

And they are all still plain R-M269 . That is their original prediction. One of the haplotypes was then temporarily predicted to be R-L21. While, after a recent Big Y test, I know that all of them should be under R-U152, and not under R-L21.

So two points for FTDNA. One for their withdrawal from the more detailed, but not accurate!, haplogroup predictions a couple of months ago. The other for not messing the predictions with whatever they were doing yesterday evening .

My pink banner and announcement are still in place. What "new data" is going to used to compute the new prediction?

I've had the pink banner on one of my Y kits for a couple days. The predicted hap group is R M269.

I have five other Y kits which do not have the banner. Three of those have done further snp testing and confirmed hap group per the snp tests. One other kit is awaiting results on a snp test. And the last kit does not have his Y test results completed yet.

Pink banner and locked

Like someone else, I can't do anything with this account (my father). No chromosome browser, no 'in common with' (get a 403 page) feature of FF.
