'If you go to open your tree, it will open a new window. Click in the URL and change the 3.3.3 to 3.3.1 and press enter, this works for me'

It works for me too :-)

Do you think the person who duplicated all those posts and stickied and gummed up chat all over the New Year will now be banned for life? Mmmmm :-S :-S :-S


Dame Report 2 Jan 2013 09:17

>O O< yeah right...


LadyScozz Report 2 Jan 2013 09:11

If you REALLY want to read them, they're on the Announcements Board.

They were there AND on the General board.

A double dip.......... or a double breach of rules?


Oh, silly me, the rules only apply to paying members... sometimes :-(

PS ~ the reported threads were removed but WE STILL CAN'T SEE OUR TREES :-P


Kense Report 2 Jan 2013 09:02

They've gone now.


wisechild Report 2 Jan 2013 08:17

Excellent advice if the tree facility was working.


OneFootInTheGrave Report 2 Jan 2013 07:57

mmmmmmmmmmmmmm interesting

That this has disappeared from the Day 7 Start your tree announcement:-

"Transfer your findings to our free family tree to create a secure online version"

I wonder why ;-)


JustJohn Report 1 Jan 2013 16:28

Too true, Ken ;-)

Now the rr'er has confessed.......

Should be start a petition to free her from the inevitable ban?


Kense Report 1 Jan 2013 14:21

Of course the reporting means there is now another thread taking up Page 1 space.


GlitterBaby Report 1 Jan 2013 12:57

I have to say it is the best laugh I have had on this site for ages seeing the GR posts sent for review.

Wonder if the same person did all 7 and will they be getting a ban


JustJohn Report 1 Jan 2013 12:53

No, Susan with :-D :-D It is a bit irritating putting those 7 threads on the only really active board. Quite fun to see all the comments on your thread and PH's new thread. It is just one more example of Genes' total disregard for members imho


Susan10146857 Report 1 Jan 2013 12:48

Hmmm John, are you trying to achieve the same effect as GR on this thread?

Just asking


JustJohn Report 1 Jan 2013 12:43

Ten have now viewed Day Seven. Five before report, five after.

Apparently, for the benefit of the five post report viewers, it said Happy New Year. :-D

Someone on duplicate thread to this was one of the first five pre-report viewers. ;-)


JustJohn Report 1 Jan 2013 11:50

Now Day Seven has appeared long enough for 5 people to see it. And all 7 threads have been reported. :-S
And another virtually identical thread has appeared. Soon have to scroll to Page 3 to get recent posts ;-)


JustJohn Report 1 Jan 2013 11:12

All now been reported except Day One. :-S :-S

Still no Day Seven


JoyDean Report 1 Jan 2013 11:11

There should be a day 7; it was in facebook ยท 2 hours ago.


JustJohn Report 1 Jan 2013 11:07

9.15am Jan 1st. "Day Six" was reported for review. Wonder how long that will take to remove on a Bank Holiday? :-S :-S

"Is there going to be a day 7 competition"?

C`mon Ken should know the story by now .

"And on the 7th day GR rested"...

Amen to that ;-)


JustJohn Report 1 Jan 2013 10:42

James :-D :-D

At least we don't have to worry about anyone hacking into our tree ;-)


OneFootInTheGrave Report 1 Jan 2013 09:10


I was wondering that because I saw somewhere on here that on Day 7 they say:-

"Start Your Family Tree Week: 1 January Start Your Family Tree Week

Happy New Year! Our best wishes for a very happy 2013.

New Year's Day is a great time to talk to your family about the progress you've made.

Transfer your findings to our free family tree to create a secure online version"

The question is - How do you do that when the Gedcom Processor is still not working :-(
