Absolutely disgraceful GR

It has taken almost 4 days to remove a post on General Chat Board.

Are you really saying by the lack of actions and feedback that no one from the Support / Abuse Team actually works at the weekends. Or have they been overwhelmed by the reporting that has taken place over the last 4 days and need a second opinion from the Head of Support.

I hope the Team take action and quickly to stop this type of thing happening again.

A very unhappy member

Oh dear GR I think you need a major rethink of when exactly you have members of the Support/Abuse Team working.

A thread on Find Ancestors Board was reported on Friday - presumably because the poster display their email addy - and has still not been reinstated.

A green light is being given to anyone that wants to post a thread that is going to get sent for review and it stay on the boards for days.

I contacted Support on Friday at 12:25 because I thought a couple of threads might give trouble but even that has not been acknowledged.

Natasha must be on holiday as absent from the boards as well.



As previous stated I would be available to work for GR at weekends and evenings ;-)

I also reported to the abuse manager on Friday morning abt 11am a thread that might give trouble and have had no reply and the offending posts are still their, plus my concerns have been proved to be justified and correct.

Probably one of the ones that I mentioned to the Support Team Roy.

So 2 of us that raised concerns and not the slightest bit of notice taken by the Team.

GR say in their link to the abuse manager

I want to report abusive or unsuitable content.

If you wish to report any abuse of the system please contact our abuse manager and we will quickly remove the offensive material. (Please do not use this email address for any other queries. They will not be answered.)


Nothing quick about using the link

Natasha also said that when a thread/post is reported for review that it instantly flags up on their system so why do threads remain for days and on occasion members have had to inform GR through their FB page that a thread has not received their attention.

" when a thread/post is reported for review that it instantly flags up on their system so why do threads remain for days and on occasion members have had to inform GR through their FB page that a thread has not received their attention. "

- Apparently there is a bug; although on the boards there are still reported posts waiting to be reviewed, in the site's system everything awaiting review has been cleared.

I also reported a couple of posts, at 11.15 on Friday

As, I too have been asked to notify GR, of any thread that I believe could be contentious

No response

GlitterBaby Report 30 Jun 2013 22:33

So at least 3 of us, long term members, have been ignored by the Team

Will be looking forward to their reply on Monday sometime but probably nearer to lunchtime if at all.

Joy, I do wish GR would stop blaming a BUG for all the site problems.

Who has developed the site? Answer GR

So who put the BUG their in the first place? or are they saying that the site is not secure? and a hacker is responsible?

Is the development team not able to make "improvements" without introducing more BUGS?



Roy

Edit, A "Bug" doesn't explain why sending a message direct to the team/abuse manager and there for bypassing the report button still goes unanswered

Hi everyone,

I’ve checked with customer support and there are no outstanding request reviews. If you have seen that there are still some outstanding could you please let me know and I will ask the customer support team to look into them immediately.

Thanks
Natasha

Added - the above links sent to Natasha who will look into it.

Weren't we told that employees were monitoring the Reported posts over the weekends and in the evenings? This doesn't seem to be the case at the moment.
