The date of the commencement of this thread says it all !!!

21st October, 2011 !!!

This same problem has been going on since then, and beyond !!!!!!!!!!!!

I am REALLY losing patience now !

What I would really like to ask is WHY WERE THERE NO ERROR MESSAGES GOING ON DURING THE WEEKEND WHEN GR HAD IT'S 'SPECIAL WEEKEND' WDYTYAlive the other week ???????????

Apologies for 'shouting' but I think that is a very relevant question.

If they can keep it clear at 'important times' for them, why cannot they sort the problem permanently ???

Lol, way to go Dea!, I do so agree...

Really isn't good enough, am getting very fraught here, so much so, I just ate 2 hot cross buns instead of 1...(that's not good either!)

Thank you PeeEmm for the word of warning !! :-) :-)

I still think this thread started on 21st October 2011, or longer !! - However, the fact remains that this problem has been going on for FAR too long !!!

P.S. PeeEmm - Just wanted to join in on the splitting hairs !! - You edited, I think, at 7.15 p.m. on 10th March, 2012, NOT 2011 !! :-D :-D :-D

Woooow !! - I seem to have got back on here after about 20 Error messages.

No further posts but I have to go to bed quite soon so I think I ought to post something before I go as it will take me several hours to get back to here in the morning !! :-D :-D

SO................ I wish you all an 'error message free day' !!!

I live in hope !! - Hope you all manage the same!

SylviaInCanada Report 10 Mar 2012 23:57

SylviaInCanada Report 11 Mar 2012 00:19

I spoke too soon!

Re-entered GR about 15 minutes ago (as posted above) .... no problem.

Opened Suggestions .... no problem.

Read new posts on one thread, submitted new post ...... no problem.

Opened a new thread, wrote and submitted a post ..... ERROR after ERROR after ERROR.

Left the thread, and tried to re-open it ....ERROR.

Tried to open another thread ........ ERROR.

Left the Board, and tried to re-enter .... ERROR.

Tried to open Find Ancestors ...... ERROR

Tried to re-enter Suggestions after about 10 minutes ..... success

Opened the thread, found the second of the 3 attempts to post a message had succeeded, but not either of the other 2.

Wrote and submitted another post to that same thread ....... success

opened this thread again ...... success

This is crazy!!



SylviaInCanada Report 11 Mar 2012 00:20

is it only being like this, or is it also all the other ones?

I notice lots of postings on the FB wall, as well as another thread on Suggestions .............. to get Dea riled up means it really HAS been bad!!!



GlitterBaby Report 11 Mar 2012 00:26

Well for something completely different

Came back to this thread - click on page 19 and entered up on FAQs

I only joined FB to see what GR are posting over on that site and a lot of comments concerning error messages on this site.


SylviaInCanada Report 11 Mar 2012 01:00


That is a new one!!!!!

it has been working well for me for the last little while (everything crossed that it continues!)

lots of people post their complaints over there .......... because a) they almost always get a response from GR, and b) more people will also post with the same error than you get on here.

There are so many people on this site who almost never wander off Chat, or another Board, but who are on FB ... and they suddenly realise they've been suffering in silence, thinking it is their computer or browser that is at fault!

Last week I had steam coming out of my ears with the frustrations on this site.
Today there's a strong smell of fire and brimstone !! :-P

Earlier today I must have seen the Error Message at least twenty times. I gave up in disgust.

Ten minutes ago I started trying to get on to GR. Error Message after Error Message. Clicking on the GR Logo only gets another Error Message.

Clicked on community......... Error Message over and over and over. Go back.......... and out of GR completely. Got back to main page, tried Refreshing...... and guess what came up? Error Message.

I'll copy this message before I submit it........ in case I get another Error Message and the message disappears........... again!

I clicked on suggestions board but was taken to advanced search (which rarely functions nowadays in my experience).

Error experienced with messages and with boards and with my threads.


GlitterBaby Report 12 Mar 2012 14:18

Are the Team working on any of these problems ?


wisechild Report 12 Mar 2012 16:17

Had a response this afternoon from the support team after I e mailed them on Saturday.
Just a standard "we are aware of the problem & are working on it. Thank you for your patience"

Doesn´t help in the least as they´ve been aware of problems on the site for months, but at least it shows they have read my e mail.
