It would be welcomed and appreciated if all matters in the suggestions board were dealt with, please, ie noted / actioned / removed as appropriate, starting with the first post and working forward.

Thank you.

While I agree that it would be nice to see that done, to me it seems like a lot of effort for a Genes person to expend on something that is just cosmetic and useful to just a small part of the membership.

I would hope that Genes do have some internal system for dealing with suggestions in a systematic way but I suspect that Natasha's fortnightly report is the best way we can hope to see that information..

But Ken the fortnightly report by Natasha, Community Manager, is not happening every two weeks.

The last one was dated 19th July 2013

I understand from another thread that Natasha has been on holiday.
Without wishing to invade her privacy, perhaps she could in future advise members that she is not going to be available between certain dates.

Yes wisechild, and there was one other occasion when the roundup was a week late, but so far Natasha has been quite reliable. Previous promises by Genes staff have not turned out so well.

- From May we have been updating members every 2 -3 weeks on the latest suggestions on the suggestions board including those in the threads: Records, Tree and General. If you have a suggestion that hasn’t been addressed yet it’s best if you repost this on the suggestions board. "


With respect, posts in the suggestions board commenced in May 2011, at the request of Genes Reunited.

Why not start at the beginning?

With nearing a thousand suggestion threads and over five hundred posts on the stickied suggestion threads, I fear that would be a massive task for GR to undertake.

I think it is more practical for members to ensure their favourite proposals are restated.

I would assume that the roundups only started in May 2013 because that´s when Natasha took on the job.
Genes troubled with afterthought?
