Where has the thread gone..



Community Advisor Report 17 Apr 2013 15:31

Hi FannyByGaslight, the thread has been removed because the deadline to ask Anthony questions for this particular You Tube video has now closed. Thanks to everyone for their questions. Watch the announcements board for the finished video coming soon...



Reggie Report 17 Apr 2013 15:34

Why was there no mention of a 'deadline' when you posted the thread?


FannyByGaslight Report 17 Apr 2013 18:21

If there was Reggie I sure didnt see one either...

But ONE up to me...I got an answer from GR...Sort of...Whoopeeeeee

Did anyone from the Team actually read that thread before it got deleted ?


FannyByGaslight Report 17 Apr 2013 20:55

I very much doubt it GB,but if they did they would not have liked our replies anyway so it was gonna get whooshed one way or another ASAP..!

Edits...Nah they cant have cos none of us actually asked a question about FH did we??.....No need to as we have each other for our brick walls...Cept Evelyns of course..



SylviaInCanada Report 17 Apr 2013 20:56

Reggie ......

I didn't see any "deadline" either!

there was absolutely no sense of urgency, as in "respond by midnight April 16"

The "deadline" must have been posted after I went to bed, which was at about 8 am UK time ;-)


MarieCeleste Report 17 Apr 2013 21:23

Not all of us were able to be around at the time.

That thread should have been left for others to see what the questions were so they'd be better informed when watching Anthony Adolph's answers later.

It would also have been a chance for us to look into the questions ourselves to see what we could come up with and compare our findings with his.

Oh hang on, is this it?


FannyByGaslight Report 17 Apr 2013 21:37

No MC ,it was a stickied one on here...


MarieCeleste Report 17 Apr 2013 21:52

Oh, were there different questions on it?

That's a shame - I thought the point of the exercise was that we were supposed to be able to learn from his expertise?

Surely if the previously undisclosed deadline had passed then GR could have made the thread so no new posts were added but we could at least have seen the questions.


SylviaInCanada Report 17 Apr 2013 21:52

MC ..................

that is the web chat thread with the resident genealogist, which shows on your Home page

the one FBG is asking about was a stickied thread by GR on Genealogy Chat ......

....... asking for people who had a "sticky" problem to contact GR. If it looked interesting, they would use you and your problem to have AA answer or solve it on a You Tube video.

Cynthia suggested that he might be interested to work on the thread trying to find Evelyn's mother ................ a problem that has involved many members for several years.

It was also suggested that AA should respond on the GR Board's re ANY problem that was submitted as so many people do not watch You tube, and have no intention of watching You tube.

Cyn also asked that question re Evelyn's thread on the one that you cited ........ to no effect, as you can see on there.

There was NO deadline posted on the GR stickied thread re the You tube video when I went to bed, which was, as I said, after 8 am UK time this morning (April 17. The thread was still there, 'cos I checked it.

Strange, but I had a feeling that thread would be whooshed.

Deadline my a*se! It was nothing to do with a deadline. GR didn't like the comments or the direction they were taking, it wasn't what they'd bargained for, so they whooshed it.

Consequently I don't suppose the resident genealogy expert will look at the 'Evelyn's mother' thread now. :-(


Reggie Report 18 Apr 2013 08:37

I very much doubt that he was ever going to.......................considering his reaction at the time


CupCakes Report 18 Apr 2013 09:51

Just think it is so funny - here today and gone tommorrow. GR made a big booboo there. ;-) ;-) ;-) ;-)


Jonesey Report 18 Apr 2013 10:05

I think that Karen's suggestion of the reason why the AA thread was removed so quickly is most probably nearer to the truth than that given by Natasha.

I wait to see whether this thread will now suffer a similar fate.

The truth is that the truth often hurts.


Community Advisor Report 18 Apr 2013 11:57

Hi all,
The thread was read before it was removed and was done so because, as stated above, the deadline has passed, the filming for the You Tube video is taking place today. There was only one actual question for Anthony posted on the thread about Evelyn’s mystery, which was passed onto him as well as the 20+ questions from the facebook post.
The video will be uploaded to the site as soon as it's ready.


wisechild Report 18 Apr 2013 13:39

There was no deadline mentioned when I looked at 8 am GB time.,
It was probably posted on Facebook like everything else of interest to GENES MEMBERS: :-| :-| :-| :-| :-| :-| :-| :-|


Cynthia Report 18 Apr 2013 13:44

Dear Community,

I'm not sure I understand your comment about 'one actual question' for Anthony posted on the thread about Evelyn's mystery.

As the person who posted that 'one actual question', I would like to clarify the fact that, despite a rather long winded explanation of the mystery, I gave him the link and, specifically invited Anthony to look at the thread and see how much hard work has been done over the last 4 years, and that we would welcome his advice.

His response to my invitation was to state that he sees that I have referred him to a thread 'somewhere else'. Maybe he thought I was referring to another genealogy site :-S

Would it REALLY be too much to ask the GR resident expert for help on a mystery which has bamboozled so many loyal, paying members for so long?

I look forward to a reply.

Hi Cynthia, I think you are referring to his live web chat session whilst I’m referring to the thread posted on the message board asking for questions which we’ll air in our You Tube video – there was one question on that thread for Anthony which was on Evelyn’s mystery and I have passed this on to him.
