Just thought i would ask it seems i am able to post on here and yet i am unable to access my tree for several hours now - is anyone else experiencing the same problem - not sure how long it will go on for - Genes do not seem to give any warning or indication as to how long work will go on for... Thanks

Mark I know its frustrating but all these things take time, don't let not getting into your tree stop you keep adding more, maybe you should think of a FTM
and another tree site to add to GR's.

Merlin sweetie am all togged out waiting for the parteeee to start.
Marion lets go.

Emma :-D


MarionfromScotland Report 3 Jun 2011 13:54

Just about to start a thread on the same topic.
Twice today (8am & now) it´s taken well over 10 minutes to get onto the site.
Keep getting messages such as "need your password" which comes up automatically," Link to server is broken," "server can´t find the page," etc.
When I finally do get in, sit for what seems like hours waiting for the stupid little arrows to appear on the home page, because can´t get into any of the boards until they do.
When I finally get onto the board I want, I´m faced for several seconds by a blank page. Eventually, the text appears.
It´s been like this now all week.
I´m a fairly patient person, but am on the verge of losing it.


Merlin Report 3 Jun 2011 14:04

Emma .you,ll have a Job, have,nt got the Still installed yet,( Marion is holding on to it ) waiting for a better offer from the "Haggis Hunters" ;-) :-S :-D.**M**.


'Emma' Report 3 Jun 2011 14:19

Wisechild am like yourself can handle it for so long and then get
to the edge of my patience, but such a lovely day nothing was
going to upset me.

I'll have you know Merlin my ancestors were Haggis Hunters
and we often have a week-end away for a Haggis



Merlin Report 3 Jun 2011 16:20

May I suggest that if anyone is experiencing problems you put it on the suggestions board because Phil Moir the site developer is answering queries on there.

I posted there yesterday and he has responded to that thread

you could also make suggestions for improvements you would like to see
