It looks as if GR is going to take up the whole board with it's posts......A clear sign of board hogging if I ever saw one. Methinks they are after board domination.
Now correct me if I am wrong but isn't it against some kind of GR ruling about duplicate posts on the same subject. I think they should have a board all to themselves......Oh whoops, they already have :-D


Suzanne Report 28 Dec 2012 23:41

is it not a problem with the site 2day ? i posted earlier and it duplicated 3 times all by its self,also noticed Dizzi""s thread duplicated 6 times. :-D


MR_MAGOO Report 28 Dec 2012 23:46

GR post a different topic each day so there will be 7 topics. :-(

I think Dizzi got her finger stuck :-S

Why are their stickies only on this board. :-S

They should be on the Quizzes and Games board as well, should they not?


Suzanne Report 28 Dec 2012 23:55

they should Jiminy they should :-D


maggiewinchester Report 29 Dec 2012 00:38

Whoops - looks like I'm catching up with GR :-S

Is that 'cos no-one is around???


jax Report 29 Dec 2012 00:49

Why would they need a "Start your family tree week" on here??

Surely if you are using these boards you would have started a tree already?


maggiewinchester Report 29 Dec 2012 01:05

You have to admit - It's got 'unknown' members posting on this thread - mainly because they can't access what they've paid for :-D


Mayfield Report 29 Dec 2012 16:05

RR GR's posts maybe ;-)

Wonder if it would work, but not fair on those who visit only sometimes !
It would be nice though if you could mark posts you don't want to read again so they don't clutter up the page each time you visit

I have to agree with Jax.

Those who have just joined the site need to see the 'Start your family tree' stuff on the Homepage not here..... and also on the FB page where quite frankly GR is missing a huge trick,,,, as many of the newbies who post there clearly have no idea where or how to start ( or even that they need to join GR 'proper' ) and are ( often) reliant on experienced members to help them.


George Report 29 Dec 2012 17:15

What I find annoying is, GR post these things but never allow any members the chance to post a reply.??? obviously don't want to hear criticism.

Also on face book GR only seem to reply when someone posts something nice, they never hardly reply to disgruntled members.



Susan10146857 Report 30 Dec 2012 09:58

How ridiculous ...and I wonder how long they will stay there. Whoever is in charge obviously couldn't care less.


George Report 30 Dec 2012 10:03

I have just requested it for review as these posts should have been put on the genealogy board.



GlitterBaby Report 30 Dec 2012 10:03

Who took a chance and sent day 1 for review

Or are the Team doing some practise of their own procedures



AnnCardiff Report 30 Dec 2012 10:06

why can't they have a page just for their own postings :-S

GB look up ^ it was George :-D


George Report 30 Dec 2012 10:09

I own up, it was me who sent day 1 for review.....bloody silly all these posts from GR, as I said, should be on the genealogy board.



GlitterBaby Report 30 Dec 2012 10:09

But we posted at the same time



GlitterBaby Report 30 Dec 2012 10:12

Oh dear wonder what the Team will think of having their post sent for review.

Will George get a warning ?


George Report 30 Dec 2012 10:16

I could care less, GlitterBaby.

Gr should get their house in order what with all the problems with this site that they struggle to fix, they also should look in on the boards more and see how disgruntled their customers are, and stop telling everyone of blinking face book how wonderful this site is.
