WDYTYA Advisor Report 21 Feb 2013 17:49

Hi everyone,

It's that time of year again. The Who Do You Think You Are? Live show starts tomorrow and continues all weekend. As some of you may remember, last year we posted live requests from people attending the show to showcase the amazing help available from our members. We would like to do the same this year.

We have created this new board so that you can easily see which requests are coming in from the show, you will be able to see this board tomorrow. Any member who offers help or advice on this board will be offered a 1 month extension to their membership as a thank you for your help.

We will be sending every person who posts a question home with an instruction sheet on how to find their posts again, and how to ask further questions. we hope this will encourage more people to realise the value of the boards.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

And me but does not appear to be threaded in anyway

How are the replies going to get posted to the right enquiry

Renes

Renes Report 21 Feb 2013 23:29

Suppose the reply will have to C & P to the question ........... would that work

my baby Hedgehog.... is so cute

SylviaInCanada Report 22 Feb 2013 01:14

it will be chaos if it is not threaded ......

................. unless a responder always C&Ps the question, and answers all in the same post.


Not well thought out, methinks!


the people asking questions at WDYTYA may have a hard time working their way through this Board to find their question!

Need radar to find this. Good morning Choccy......

It will be interesting to see how it works this year.

LK, I like that idea too..........not just because it is hoped that more people will find out how brilliant the help on the board can be, but because it should save me some work if people are advised on how to respond to help given them. :-D ;-)

I'm happy to help if I can.

Thank goodness for fellow helpers to enable us to do that. I was wandering and wondering too.

Hi everyone, sorry for any confusion! We have now added the link to the board in our original posts on Find Ancestors and Announcements.

Barbara,

This is not a lookup board for members but for people who are attending WDYTA.

Would be better to place this on Find Ancestors Board.

Why is the link to this board not shown on General Chat and Genealogy Chat Boards ?

Rambling Rose Report 22 Feb 2013 23:59

Can I ask the team ( and warn helpers!) to check whether enquiries have been made by posters before.

I wasted a lot of time today searching records only to discover that a huge amount of work had already been done on the search by helpers on the FA board several years ago

Oh dear


Guidelines for message board use

3. Your general conduct

Please do not submit the same or similar material more than once.


So the Team had better remove their duplicate post - once on this board and also on Find Ancestors

;-)
