Well tomorrow is the 17th so maybe all will have the luck of the Irish and everything will run smoothly.

I had not looked at my hotmail for a few days (naughty me)... found this one a couple of minutes ago.

Reply from GR dated 7th March -

" Phil has spent some time this morning looking into these errors. He made a few changes at lunch time (UK time) and you should now be able to log in and use the site without seeing any error messages.

Please could you sign in and use the site as normal. If you do encounter any error messages then please let me know exactly where on the site you see them. "

I have already replied. I'm sure you can imagine what I wrote.

I will copy this message just in case it disappears and I get another Error Message.

Must have had at least 30 error messages just this evening since I logged in after 9pm

Had enough of this site tonight


SylviaInCanada Report 11 Mar 2012 00:13

spoke too soon, didn't I!!

it was working beautifully for me ....... first tried entering GR about 90 minutes ago. No Problem. Had to have 3 tries to open My Threads, but got in on 3rd try. Wrote and submitted a post, no problem.

Re-entered GR about 10 minutes ago .... no problem.

Opened Suggestions .... no problem.

Read new posts on one thread ...... no problem.

Opened this 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 enter Suggestions after something over 5 minutes ....... success

............. and find that the second attempt to post a message on here worked! The other two did not.

This is crazy!!!



SylviaInCanada Report 11 Mar 2012 00:02

Not too bad now

I have got on the site with no problem, and also fast ......... TWICE

I have posted 3 messages, no problem .............. BUT I did get the Error message twice when trying to open My Threads, before "third time lucky".

Have not yet tried opening My Threads on this visit


uh oh ........... spoke too soon

got the Error Message trying to post this message!


PricklyHolly Report 10 Mar 2012 20:50

PricklyHolly Report 10 Mar 2012 19:04

Oh, look at the time!!

I have been on the "Find Ancestors" board since 7.30am this morning, trying my best to help members with their research............AND, i pay for the pleasure!!

And all thanks to GR with the error messages, i have ended up looking like a right numpty because i can't continue and post the information asked for.........AND on one PM received, i kept getting the dreaded "Error Message"......and so i persevered, only to find that the message had been sent 5 TIMES!!

So call me a numpty why don't you!!

Julia Report 10 Mar 2012 18:11

Join the club gals. I've had it all day, and have still got it. It is a bloomin' nuisance. I'll wear me finger out keep clicking on Error messages. Hope it has cleared up for Monday

Are you making excuses for GR again, Ken?
Surely if they were planning maintenance today they could have let us know beforehand. I have had at least a dozen error messages today and it's not just the "My Threads" board, it's all of them now.


Dea Report 10 Mar 2012 16:59

You are being too kind to them Ken - this has been going on for a VERY long time now.

Dea Xxx

P.S. - I would have said more but I 'bit my tongue' !!

They are probably doing some maintenance or development which means temporarily locking our some parts of the system. They couldn't have done that during WDYTYLive because the developers were on the stand.

I have had the error message a lot today but am usually able to do what I want after a few seconds.
