The topic of this thread was originally related to the performance issues that some members were plagued with, especially difficulties in logging in. This is what GR have recently tried to address, with much success, I might add.

However, I believe, further work on the part of GR is still required to speed up performance, for example, when navigating 'My Threads' and also with the 'Names Summary', which also times out regularly when moving from page to page with larger trees.

This latter point is something that no one else seems to have mentioned but is in fact more of an annoyance to those of us who use that tool in their research than the problem with navigating their thread postings, which I can easily live without.

To be fair, Phil from GR has said that work on performance issues is ongoing, so lets see what happens over the next week or so.

The roll out of the new tree, which in reality is still in development, is a separate issue and problems and bugs with the tree should continue to be reported to the developers using the link provided. There is little point in listing them in detail on here because the tree developers are unlikely to see them.

Would the member on this page, who posted on yesterday's date, and who sent me an exact copy of what he has posted here, despite my not being on this thread until now, please desists.
I asked him by returned PM to do this, and talk to me in a proper manner. His reply was to ask me who I was, and that I did not sound like someone he would like to correspond with. What, for asking someone to use their manners.
Well, sorry mate, I don't like people talking to me like that. Anymore, and I will report you to GR, as a stalker, and have your membership revoked.

Do gremlins invade this site at weekends?

I was in earlier for a couple of hours. No problems.

I took five tries (and four Error Messages) this time. I wasn't signed out.

Grrrrrrrrrrr!! :-P
