My workload just got a lot bigger.

Classification: Query
I was aware of the slider at the top that controlled what degree of confidence and distance one can get from matches.

But all along I've had it set at around 60% figuring that would take in most of the usable matches. On a whim today I moved the slide out to around 90% and it looks like I gained several hundred new matches. Anybody have any insight into working far out on the edge like this? What degree do you have your slide set at, and has anyone gotten many usable matches out there in right field?

Also, I'm wondering whether it represents matches that are further away, or older, or maybe some ambiguous data in the DNA. Even before I did this most of my matches seemed to be out past the 8th generation or so anyway. Although I've had a few marked at 3rd cousin, I've never really found anybody quite that close.
