Sylvia, I am convinced that it must be to do with the number of threads you have, since you and GlitterBaby and Joy KM must all have many thousand threads. Perhaps the resources that GR allocates you, are insufficient for the My Threads software in which case GR need to reevaluate the amount needed.

I believe Ken is correct. The request to process that particular set of data is taking too long and is timing out.

It is a generic problem with the site, not just limited to specific operations, but happens when the volume of data that needs to be processed is large so it could be sorting through your names summary, messages, board postings, my threads, moving from page to page, etc etc, in fact anything that has large numbers of records will fail at some point.

GR have attempted to address this recently, with limited success but it is still not entirely satisfactory and more work is required.

BUT the error message appears quite quickly. It is as if the process is just not working.

KenSE Report 2 Feb 2012 16:26

The process may abort because it finds it hasn't got sufficient resources to hold and manipulate the threads. That could happen at the start of the process.

It might help if there was some way to remove a thread from My Thread without having to go back to the original thread and delete the comment


There are many threads where I have made a comment, but have not returned ............ these threads are all still in existence. Removing my comment is a possibility ..... but may well not enhance the thread for anyone else who may find it in future. It just makes the thread disjointed.

One improvement I have noticed today is that the cursor now moves when I use the backspace button (or indeed any of the arrow buttons).

I don't know if others had that problem, but previously if I wanted to backspace I either had to use the mouse or count the number of places backspaced because the cursor didn't move.

KenSE

KenSE Report 4 Feb 2012 20:25

Actually I have to retract my earlier post. It is alright when I start GR and post message straight away, but if I have GR open for a while and then post the cursor doesn't move with backspace and arrows.

perhaps it time to switch to Ancestry ???

As someone fairly new ot this, I must say the GR site is something out of the past (no pun intended)

Old fashioned, buggy (very), not up to the standards of ancestry

unfortunately i paid for 12 months on gr ???

It really is quite amateur though, not what i expected.
