GR have placed the the following on Facebook. Looks like they have set a challenge to see how fast helpers can find information.

Today we are going to help you kick start your family history!
Have you reached a dead end with your research? You just can't find someone in the records? Why not ask our lovely, helpful members on our Find Ancestors board?
After you have posted your question check back regularly in case someone needs more information from you. Then report back here and let us know how quick your puzzle was solved. Follow this link and let's get some answers:

I'm not as fast and as experience as the rest of the helpers on the boards so I'll bow out. Unless someone needs a lookup for the NSW State Library I'll leave it to the experts.

it really doesnt bother me how long I wait for a helper to find me information,so long as its right....good things are worth waiting for!
And lets not forget,the helpers on here are volunteering to help people....they have probably spent their working life,ruled by a clock.
Keep up the good work lads and lassies,its not a race.
I've no complaints thus far,and Gai,even though you might not be as fast as some helpers,you might just have some snippet that someone else might not have.
