So genes have spent all year updating the system to get it wrong YET AGAIN


KathleenBell Report 17 Jun 2011 22:57

I have just looked at my Hot Matches - and I've had 15 pages added too. Again when you click on the new ones there is nothing to view.

Starting to get really fed up of the site. I can only get in using .com at the moment keeps giving the "essential maintenance" message.

also ot 15 pages and cannot view Any of them, new or or contacted or otherwise.

Clicking on view discarded matches gives identical pages as current hot matches!!!


Jean Report 18 Jun 2011 00:21

Pages & Pages of "hot matches" old & new but can't view any!! some of them have over a hundred "matches" Genes are getting worse not better. I've not had a proper "hot match" for months now, :-S

Now now, behave or the phantom referer will get you.
Don't you appreciate the 'improvements' that happen so regularly on this site?

Glad it's not just me!!!

LakesLass Report 18 Jun 2011 10:05

Same for me. Maybe 1 or 2 pages normally, now 15 pages and can't open old or new ones. SO frustrating :-(


Norma Report 18 Jun 2011 12:21

Hi all
I have just sent an email to Genereunited support re the problems with the "Hot Matches" explaining the problems but I have also said that a lot of Genes members are getting fed up with all the problems and that things seemed to work better with the previous owners.
Will let you all know what sort of response iIget from them!!!
Best wishes


Braken Report 18 Jun 2011 12:48

Thankyou Norma

I have emailed several times this year re hot matches as I wasn't getting any and was told the new system they were working on would be for the better ha ha

I think like you genes was better a few years ago

On our trees at the top of the screen where it tells you how many people you had on your tree it also told you how many surnames you had NOT NOW THOUGH

Lots of little things that made it eaiser for us we have now lost



GinaS Report 18 Jun 2011 13:15

Cannot view any of them!!!!!


JoyDean Report 18 Jun 2011 14:01

Having reported it to, I am thanked for reporting it and advised that the technical team is aware of the problem and is working on implementing a solution.
I hope that all members that cannot view matches nor discard them will report this issue.
