Worked okay yesterday - well the one time I tried it.

Not working today


InspectorGreenPen Report 7 May 2012 20:36

This isn't a problem with My Threads in particular, but is an issue affecting the entire site because of the sheer amount of data it now has to handle.

In particular, it relates to the amount of data that is connected or related to an action you are trying to do. So if you have a large tree, or have many thread postings, then you are likely to get a timeout error whenever you try to access or sort your attached records.

Once GR get to grips with this then My threads, Surname Summary, etc etc will work properly.

Yes, this is a big problem and needs sorting.


InspectorGreenPen Report 10 May 2012 18:27

My Threads worked for me ok today but Surname Summary is an absolute disaster, throwing error messages every time I try to move from page to page or perform a sort.

For me and those who are trying to research their tree this is far more important the issues with My Threads.


GlitterBaby Report 10 May 2012 20:11

Not to me it is not


GlitterBaby Report 21 May 2012 21:05

When is this problem going to get sorted !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This site only works because of the help given by members which you seem to have forgotten about.

GlitterBaby Report 12 Jul 2012 01:50

Worked okay about 4 hours ago but now back to error message


GlitterBaby Report 17 Jul 2012 12:41

This site only works because of the help given by members on the boards

But for us to help properly the use of My Threads is a must.

When is this going to get sorted :-P


Kense Report 17 Jul 2012 22:57

Actually the help given by members on the boards is a very small part of the site's function.

It you check the site activity on the home page you find that messages sent are two or three times more numerous than board postings (the majority of which are chat and games postings). New people added to trees are around ten times more numerous than messageboard posts.

It is fairly clear that this My Threads problem only affects those who have a large number of posts so it is quite a basic problem with the system and fixing it will benefit only a few members.

I suspect that the discussion items on the home page which has resulted in a lot of old threads being reactivated has had the effect of increasing the sort time associated with My Threads leading to more timeouts and consequent error messages.


JoyDean Report 17 Jul 2012 23:05

Nearly six months after this thread was started, and still the error occurs sometimes :-|
