The link fails because there is an extra colon at the end.

It would just be nice, I think, if apologies were posted in genes reunited's own site; another one posted in its wall in facebook today:
"We want to apologise to anyone who had difficulty logging into the site over the weekend. If you are still experiencing issues when trying to log in please let us know by emailing - We believe the issue was related to a timeout that was fixed yesterday. Again, apologies to anyone who could not log in due to this issue."

I had better be a bit careful what I put now otherwise I will be getting a ban for swearing

What is the problem with the GR Team that they can not do the decent thing and post on this site

Fill in the blanks

F or B

And anything else that anyone cares to think !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I seldom swear but really this is no longer funny - it stinks

Perhaps next time GR want the help of their members for an event like WDYTYA, they could ask their Facebook followers instead of GR members.
After all, they seem to be given all the information from GR.

Joy they had to post it on FB.

There was no one here to read it. ;-)


GlitterBaby Report 5 Mar 2012 19:29

Missing the point

Once GR members got onto the site there should have been an apoplogy and explaining that there had been problems

Why is this simple request not understood !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


GlitterBaby Report 5 Mar 2012 19:39

From Facebook

Genes Reunited Our new office is located in Shoreditch. Aptly, it is a building with history - It was once " The New Tabernacle Congregational Church, Old Street. Founded in 1832, it was called the 'new' Tabernacle church to distinguish it from the Methodist Tabernacle at nearby Moorfields, which had been founded in 1732. It was closed in 1950."

Most other sites have a message that comes up almost immediately if you sign in has failed ....... ancestry, ftf, etc

why cannot GR institute something like that??

it seems easy enough to my simple mind!

and ti would keep the members happy.

"Joy they had to post it on FB.

- There were posters and readers over the weekend and today. It is appalling discourtesy.

This morning, I got in after having to sign in ......... but only once

Posted in facebook only about 20 minutes ago, so will probably be posted in announcements here soon:

Hi everyone, we are really sorry with the problems many of you are having logging in and using the site. Our technical team are looking into these problems this morning. Please bear with us - we hope to have this fixed as soon as we can.

There again ...


GlitterBaby Report 6 Mar 2012 19:22

Phil has posted today on this thread

But why we should have to search for the posts is beyond me

Joy Kentish Maid Report 7 Mar 2012 11:47

Thank you, Maureen.

However, the apology posted twice in facebook has not appeared in this site in announcements. Very disappointing.

Joy Kentish Maid Report 7 Mar 2012 14:59

Competition results seem to be more important in the announcements board than apologies :(


GlitterBaby Report 7 Mar 2012 16:41

So where on this site is a list of winners ?

Still waiting for the Annoucement Board to have an apoplogy from the GR Team for the problems on this site.


GlitterBaby Report 15 Mar 2012 00:00

Will ask the question again

Where are the results of the Mothers Day competition on this site ?


GlitterBaby Report 18 Mar 2012 13:59

In response to the RR,s on this site - so still posting on Facebook without anything on this site. Wish they would spell check first !!
