Hi Barry,

We are collating suggestions. It is helpful to get feedback from Genes Reunited members regarding names of packages - we would like the description to encompass what you receive as a member.

I cannot provide a date for renaming the membership types, but all comments are extremely useful.

Regards

Shelley

Any chance of an update or is this just another idea that's died a death without trace ? (No response to my last posting dated nearly a month ago)

On 31 May 2013 Community said that a decision had not yet been made (This, I think is their only posting on this topic)

What was the point of this exercise anyway - Is anyone bothered what they call the various levels of subscription ?

Genes priorities of late all seem to be misplaced !!

Seems there are'nt any reply's worth adding, not many peeps are happy with the site:((((
Perhaps some are right in what they say "sort out the problems you have before adding anymore"

Hi everyone, thank you for all of the suggestions so far. This is an ongoing project so we haven’t made a decision yet. We’ll update you when we have.
Keep the suggestions coming!

IMHO, having read some of the nonsense on this thread, I fail to appreciate the necessity of change for change's sake. The current terms for subscripton packages have been adequate for a very long time so why alter them?
Is it merely a case of someone in your office needing to validate his/her value as an employee? - make a name for him/her self? Perhaps, but I always advocate a policy of 'if it ain't broken, there's no need to fix it'. The existing terms for the packages are understood by all the millions of members - a change will merely introduce confusion. The only time that a revision of subscription package names may be necessary will be if and when the actual packages themselves are changed.
A labourer of yesteryear may now be called a 'pick and shovel operative', but nevertheless he will still be a labourer! Keep it simple - leave it as it is and has been - and devote your energies to something more productive for the membership's benefit ... ;-)

Looks like it´s died the death as far as the GR team are concerned.

Well GR please get off your backside and state that you have read these comments.

Why - well we are going round in circles.

You started this thread so do the decent thing - REPLY to it.

Because I for one will not be renewing my membership because of your inapt way of doing things.

It used to be a good site but NOT anymore because of the way you treat you paying member.

So as I said get off your backside and take control of your site pronto

Could I suggest that unnecessary changes do not help to improve GenesReunited?

I have been through many changes since I first joined, and can't think of any that have really improved my experience. I find it harder to negotiate back and forth, to record my information, and seem to spend a lot of valuable time trying to find the screens I want.

Let people have the time to consolidate. I don't think genealogy needs novelty. When I think how simple the display was, and that I could concentrate on my tree, and the direct messages I exchanged with members, I long for the old days!!

So GR, have you decided on the new names yet or is this a complete waste of our time?
