Joy, I'm on and it's been fine for me today.



JoyDean Report 30 Jul 2012 20:12 :-( :-)


JoyDean Report 16 Jul 2012 15:10

I had to sign in again, more than once since then, so I :-|ed.


Kense Report 16 Jul 2012 12:07

Joy, are you just nudging the thread or did you have to sign in again (for the first tine since 6th July)?

I usually close all windows and turn off my computer (though leaving the power on) when I am going to be away for any length of time.

The only time I do not do this is when we are having dinner in the evening .......... I may be away from the computer for 1-2 hours then

GR has not shut me down during that time on the occasions when I have left the site open.

I do not know about longer periods.



Kense Report 11 Jul 2012 20:23

I found I got signed out yesterday. When I leave the PC I normally shut most windows but this time I was away for a few hours and came back and a GR window was open. I know some sites sign you out after a period of inactivity so I wonder if Genes does that.

Does anyone know if that is the case?


SylviaInCanada Report 9 Jul 2012 19:10

hmmmmmmmmmm ..................

that's where I usually go first as well

and still don't take in that the whole page has "new" posts, until I decide "this" thread just has to have a response from me .......

........ and then can't post.

goes away muttering "must remember my memory pills" :-D :-D


Kense Report 9 Jul 2012 09:14

No you are not Sylvia. It is because I usually make a beeline for the Suggestions board where a pageful of threads with new postings would be unusual.


SylviaInCanada Report 9 Jul 2012 04:31


I must be a bit thicker than you ..................

it's usually when I can't post a comment on a thread that I realise I'm not logged in :-D :-D


Kense Report 8 Jul 2012 07:47

You can do quite a lot on a GR site without being logged in. It's usually when I look for new postings and find that the icon for every thread indicates a new posting, that I realise I have been logged out. I don't normally enter the site by the home page though.


LadyScozz Report 7 Jul 2012 13:21

Kense - I looked at the site before I was asked to login


Kense Report 7 Jul 2012 09:19

That isn't really a bug Scozz. The url given on the blog is a uk site one so you have to be logged into the UK site to see it which is why it asked you to log in. It did not log you out of the au site.


LadyScozz Report 7 Jul 2012 02:09

Another bug?

On the Announcements board GR suggests we look at blogs on family stories.

Did that.

Clicked the back button

Please sign in - to the Genes UK page

Clicked the X

Clicked on browsing history.............

Got straight back in to Genes Aus

Some comment on General Chat about the problem:


SylviaInCanada Report 14 Jun 2012 19:34

It has been very much better for me for the last few weeks ...........

............ I'm only having to sign in once or twice a week now, and I open GR 3 or 4 times a day

so that is much better.

I've only had a couple of Error messages when submitting a post ................ much better.

I'm getting to be a happy bunny :-D :-D
