I took a look at FB to see if there were any comments on there.


Yes. There were a couple of complaints to which GR responded with apologies. Apparently their database 'got a bit stuck'. :-S


Apparently, it has been fixed and all should be well.

So still posting on FB then

The Team could have posted something on Announcement Board as well

Cynthia

Cynthia Report 17 Feb 2012 14:30

I did look, but there was nothing there. It really shouldn't be too difficult to post on both here and on FB at the same time should it??? :-S

- not to difficult, I wouldn't have thought.

There were announcements posted this morning in genes reunited but they were not announcements about genes reunited site.

GR have two "stickied" threads on the boards-one on General Chat and one on Chat named "Performance Issues" neither one has been up dated since 8th December 2011

I wonder why they do not use these threads to explain the problems they are having and how they are dealing with them and how long they expect it will take ,instead of constantly having to "firefight" complaints :-)

I wish they would just revert to the old tree and leave well alone as I have not heard anyone say a good word about the new one. The old one was easier to work on, pleasing to the eye, and bright. When its working the new one isn't very good

BUT someone on FB earlier was saying that the least GR could do was to notify them on FB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

----------------
Ken Phillips Yes, they could at least use this page to inform us of problems. I can't log in. Not that they will have fixed the bug in the tree search that I reported 3 months ago that makes the results unreliable. I think I will take up crochet as a hobby.

Yes Sylvia that is the least they can do, well apart from not doing anything.

I suppose there's not a lot of point in putting stuff on the boards when nobody can log on to them.

Julie, if you read the threads about the new tree you will see that there are several people, myself included, who are reasonably happy with the new tree.

I do realise that there is a problem with some browsers, particularly IE8, but I find the new tree is much easier and faster to navigate.

The old tree is so limited compared to other available tree sofrware, so it is nice that GR is moving the site forward.

Julie

Julie Report 21 Feb 2012 23:39

Ken,
for the sake of those like me who find the old tree much easier and faster to navigate I hope GR keeps both then.

Been getting error messages for at least 2 days when I want I click on a thread or want to change to another board.
Also go an email from GR this morning telling me that Sue in Leeds could help Sue in Leeds with names.

What a bloody laugh this site is getting,what with all the errors and stupid emails.

Just wish that the IT TEAM would get the site working properly and not adding new things ie like the new tree that some people do not understand how to use it.

Get your fingers out and get the site up and running properly.
