I had trouble finding this tread today, so I am just giving it a nudge for other members to add if members wish to do so.

Seemed to come to an abrupt halt when we were directed to another thread for some reason that was about 5 pages long. By time we had all read that rivetting and absorbing thread, the unstickied Natasha thread was several pages down the list. And I for one had lost the will to live :-(

Neither could I find this thread yesterday and had to check the Genealogy Chat one.As I thought Natasha had taken them off.


SylviaInCanada Report 15 May 2013 18:58

I also could not find this thread yesterday


Island Report 15 May 2013 12:24

Maybe because it was for the attention of users of that board GB and was only posted on here at the request of a member?

You can still post on the Genealogy one, I don't think it's been locked.


GlitterBaby Report 15 May 2013 12:16

So why is it still stickied on Genealogy Chat

Really losing the plot with this site ;-)



Island Report 15 May 2013 12:09

I assumed the thread had been unstickied Joy but it isn't really important.

TBH I was quite pleased to see it had slipped down the boards as, unlike the same notice on Genealogy Chat (where it was posted during the previous day in response to an issue on that board) it was boardering on argumentitive. It is very telling to see that the few posts on Genealogy were few and polite with no finger pointing.


GlitterBaby Report 15 May 2013 12:03

Really strange as this disappeared yesterday lunchtime about 1pm

Certainly was not on here late last night

This thread had disappeared, Island, and Natasha, and has reappeared today.

Hi Glitter Baby, I’ve been on annual leave the last couple of days. Which thread are you referring to please?


Island Report 15 May 2013 11:52

This is General Chat GB. The thread has not been deleted. :-S


GlitterBaby Report 15 May 2013 11:48

Nudge, nudge, ;-) ;-)

Have the boards been deserted by our new Community Manager ?

The Message Board Use thread that was on General Chat has been deleted and thankfully it did not get out of hand as I thought it might have done. What was the reason for the deletion?

Questions asked directly have not been answered which is the norm for the Team anyway.

Slightly puzzled by this statement:
We do not like to ban any members, and instead prefer to have a conversation with the member and see if it is an issue we can overcome.

Did not happen with me as all over and done in less than a couple of hours. The problem about not answering questions is still happening.

Threads like this Natasha?

I'm afraid that once it starts it is very difficult to keep under control and can often be exacerbated although I am sure that there must be some sort of medication or injection against it, like other things as you rightly say.


Merlin Report 12 May 2013 14:14

You never know who may get on here,Even the "Secret Lemonade Drinker" That Apoplectic Fit Thingy,It it Catching?If so can one have an Injection against it like other things. :-D :-D


eRRolSheep Report 12 May 2013 14:12

If she needs a hand genealogically speaking I do know that her granny used to live in the forest (am I putting this on the correct board?)


eRRolSheep Report 12 May 2013 14:09

Does Red Riding Hood get on here?
Merlin you will give me an apoplectic fit one of these days


Merlin Report 12 May 2013 13:55
