One wonders if the records and tips boards will stay in place.

Thank you, Lesley, so are you :-)

Just noticed someone posted that nudges can be deleted so that's good, one can nudge and delete previous ones :-)

Edit - it was not posted one minute ago, but only a few seconds ago :-)

I see that you're right Joy, In the olden days when we were Genesconnected and maybe later......were we able to delete posts? I cannot recall.

I cannot recall either, Lesley, but at least nudges can now be deleted once useful threads have been brought forward :-)

Blooming surname filter keeps kicking in........... go away, I don't want to search for the surnames I'm looking at helping others on!

Another gliche that needs to be sorted.

Help clinic has returned. It had probably never gone in reality. However - please see - in .com it is not there, now it is.


TonyOz Report 18 Nov 2010 21:22

Mmmmm...have just logged on Aussie time 8:20 am east coast.

Cant see any "Help Clinic". All Boards are exactly the way they were 3-4 years ago.

Perhaps us Aussies and Kiwis live to far away ( sob )
O'h well, Once a convict always a convict...Where used to being dumped.....;>))



Flick Report 18 Nov 2010 22:02


You should see the help clinic at top left, with a STAR....just below 'Community'..........not as part of the drop-down.

Joy Kentish Maid Report 18 Nov 2010 22:07

HUGE (( hug )) for cousin Tony :-)

It wasn't there earlier here either then someone suggested pressing F5. Didn't work, so tried again and it did!


Renes Report 18 Nov 2010 22:19


F5 did not work for me - nor reboot - finally just clicked in the white space top left - under Community

And the Help Clinic button appeared - and has stayed there ever since


TonyOz Report 18 Nov 2010 23:08


No Star under "Community" left or "Community" is on right hand side. Nothing in Drop down bar either

'Clicked" on white space....nothing

Tried F5

I log in from....

Our adds ( Adverts ) on page are Aussie add's

Might try logging in from GR...U.K



TonyOz Report 18 Nov 2010 23:26

o'k..problem solved...:>))

Problem was...i never log off. ( havent for a few years )
I close the sight GR by the X hairs ( close) top right hand crn and never "sign out".......and have a short cut icon on "Desk top" which takes me straight to "General board" when i access never have had to "sign in".

Tony.....:>)) *who can now see the changes to boards"

Like Irene, I think the Yellow Star has bad connotations

No one other than the starred "official" advisors or the thread starter can post on any of the Help Clinic threads

I opted out of the invitation to be an Official Advisor after being told that one would NOT be allowed to post any information from any site other than brightsolid

I was offered Platinum membership on GR, free fmp subscription and free credtis on Scotlands People, plus a gift at Christmas, to help other members ......... but could not post from ancestry, freebmd, etc etc

I do notice that the current advisors are c&p'ing from those other sites!

I was also told that the Help Clinic would be open to Standard members, as they had figured that most newbies became Standard Members.

I do note, as someone has already said, that their statement that "they are members recognised by us for their effort and knowledge when helping other members." does make the rest of us look inept

not exactly what was meant when they were asked to make more recognition of the fact that all the help offered on this site was by members.


ps ............. I have so far sent in 5 complaints! They'll be sick of me!!!


Madmeg Report 19 Nov 2010 02:24

You have to log out, close your browser, log in again, and the wonderful Help Clinic will be there.

Can you get flu jabs online from it?


Madmeg Report 19 Nov 2010 02:44

So can us "non-starred" people reply on the Clinic posts? Or are we now resigned to either the easy stuff, and the stuff that the limited number of Clinic members cannot solve?

Have GR taken away my hobby? Will they pay for treatment for my withdrawal symptoms?

Does this mean the end of the Tips Board, and the Trying to Find Board? If so, I suspect an awful lot of us old hands will not be renewing our subscriptions. End of an Era maybe. Bye bye Janey, Jax, Lancashire Ann, Click on the Purple Button Not on My Name, even BrummieJan (traitor!!), Jonesey, IGP, Mgnv, Sylvia, and all the rest of you that I have worked with and who have helped me in the last few years. Good luck for the future.

I think you can pm anyone on the clinic board but not reply.

But if out of hours go direct to accident and emergency !


LindaB Report 19 Nov 2010 03:00

Oh dear Madmeg...passing tissues. Sadly no you cannot add to Clinic posts.

Hey look on the bright side you will be able to devote more time to those peskie Bramwells lol.
