Pity it wasn't on Announcements!

No problems for a while............. haven't had to sign in for a while (even after rebooting)...........

Had to sign in five minutes ago, even though I had NOT signed out.

What did I get? Friends Reunited.

Who is messing about??? :-(

All that "advice" from GR about the wrong browser, etc etc etc is an absolute load of GARBAGE!!!!

I have had problems signing in for weeks (months?). com au changes to co uk........ I have told them over and over again that I don't live in UK!

Anyway......... tried yesterday to sign in. Timed out, at least ten times (several times). My friend (Ann) tried her account, no problems, she got in immediately. She signed out, I sat down, typed in my info and got nowhere.

So............. same computer, same everything except signing in details. I have asked GR for an explanation. Do you think I'll get one that makes sense?

I'm in this time because I came in the side door!

Couldn't sign in, but could read the Community boards. There's a link there........... to reply, sign in here............ and it worked!

I feel like I've walked all over town, just to visit my nextdoor neighbour.

GR - Foundations shaky, roof caved in.......... and the plumbing is suspect! Don't even ask about the wiring.

:-P :-P :-P :-P

got in first time about 30 minutes ago ....... using Firefox.

Still having trouble getting My Threads to open.

and can usually only open 1 message, then have to exit My Messages and re-enter, before I can open a second one

I have to keep having to log in too. Even when I have NOT logged out. Sometimes have to log-in, then log-in again straight away, to be followed by error message.

Community boards are a right pain. Difficult to get on, changing pages is a nightmare (or an ERROR) posting messages??? Takes ages.

Trying to check to see if my sent meaaages have been opened - takes a long time, page won't scroll, goes to Messages in. instead of Sent.

When are the powers that be, going to sort this out.
Your members will be leaving in droves.

Right now, having to log in, yet again the site changed my email address to "Password" twice :-| :-|
(using chrome as recommended to me by genes reunited staff)

Earlier there were so many errors I did not bother any more.

I tried IE7 next (now) and did not have to sign in.

When you find something wrong with a product you buy anywhere you complain to the shop and you have someone to help if you do not get satisfaction you do not buy at that shop again so let your hard earned cash take you to anew shop as I will be doing in April when my subscription is Due to be paid to GR.

This morning I had to sign in 4 times, one after the other before it let me in. Then the site went down. Apparently if I had been on FB I would have known there was a problem but I wasn't so I wasted half an hour trying to get in. :-(


SylviaInCanada Report 28 Feb 2012 04:01

I have just had to sign in 3 times in succession, in the last 24 hours.

Twice yesterday, once about an hour ago.

so the "cookie" didn't even keep its memory for 12 hours!
