I suddenly got the Error message no matter what I wanted to do, on round about 5 am UK time this morning. Others were already complaining about the fact that they could do nothing.

I tried ................ worked perfectly!

I t tried to open about 30 minutes ago............... error message

so used

............... got in immediately, opened Messages immediately, opened Inbox with no problem, replied to message with no problem :))))

I note that it is now about 8:00 pm UK time, on a Bank Holiday, and that this problem has been on-going since at least 4 am this morning, that I know of .....

and also that there has not one single peep out of any member of the GR staff, on here and not on FB, although there are many posts on the GR wall on that site re the error message, and inability to even get into GR.

and there probably will not be until 8 am tomorrow morning.

I wonder why one GR site almost always works when has sooooooo many problems???

Reggie ........

........... Phil Moir said some weeks ago that the server had nothing to do with these problems ........... and he was going to tell Support to stop using them as an excuse :-S :-S :-S

I've joined the elite! I've had my first error message. The problem now is that there are so many threads about error messages that I don't know which one to post on.

I've also been reading on some posts that GR sometimes responds on FB. That's not much help to those of us who have chosen not to join FB. Please GR could you put your responses on the boards here as well as on FB.

Hope they listen to you Vera.
They have totally ignored those of us who say we don´t use Facebook ever since they first started posting on there.
We have asked that at the very least as a matter of courtesy, info about Genes should be posted FIRST on the Genes site, but without even an acknowlegement of the requests.


SylviaInCanada Report 10 Apr 2012 16:50

They have responded to Joy on FB

but obviously, yet again, NOT on this site.


AnninGlos Report 12 Apr 2012 16:15

check out the post on Announcements for 10 April which attempts an explanation.


GlitterBaby Report 12 Apr 2012 18:39

Error messages are back :-P


Researcher Report 12 Apr 2012 18:45

The announcement posted in GR was put there nearly eight hours after I typed in GR's page in facebook:

"Any news as to whether or not the the ongoing error message issue will ever be resolved?"

Just after 5pm, I was referred by GR (in facebook) to the announcement here. I responded:

"Seen, thanks. " ... Unfortunately the people who use the site the most are the people effected the worst...." - I hardly visit the site nowadays because of its instability, yet I am still affected most times when I do visit. "... This will not be a quick process, so once again we have to ask for your patience...." Nothing in the announcement answered my question. Will the ongoing error message issue ever be resolved? I urge Genes Reunited staff to read the other issues, too, please, such as And, if I wanted to post in the site currently, I would have to log in; my patience is running out, and the longer these issues continue, the poorer, unfortunately, will be the reputation of the site."


GlitterBaby Report 12 Apr 2012 19:32

Not sure this site has much reputation left after all the problems that remain after more than 6 months.

Beginning to feel the Team have no respect for its members after their failure to communicate properly about anything


GlitterBaby Report 12 Apr 2012 19:56

Sick of all these problems

Just ended up on FR Dating !!!!!!

Just replied to a message and then tried to come back on the boards


SylviaInCanada Report 14 Apr 2012 23:45

you could have had some interesting experiences on FR Dating!!

maybe it even works properly :-D


LadyScozz Report 15 Apr 2012 00:43

I'm thinking that GR post on Facebook for all the members who can't get here.

If I was thinking of joining GR, and saw some of the messages on FB (posted by members) it would put me off.

It doesn't excuse their bad manners in not posting here first (if at all).

You're right Glitter, they're not showing much respect at all.


wisechild Report 15 Apr 2012 07:12

There doesn´t seem much point in putting an announcement on here to say the site is down if we can´t access the site to read it.
Just been timed out again trying to read this post.


LadyScozz Report 15 Apr 2012 08:26

I can get on site, but most things I do result in an Error Message.

I wonder what they were doing in the "elastic" 15 minutes of downtime the other day?

The GR Facebook page is ridiculous. Most of it is about shows on TV.


Researcher Report 15 Apr 2012 21:55

:-| :-S


GlitterBaby Report 15 Apr 2012 21:58


Could you please remove that link as for some strange reason they are my messages



GlitterBaby Report 15 Apr 2012 21:59

Also please explain how you managed that


GlitterBaby Report 15 Apr 2012 22:02

Or does that mean anyone clicking on that link will get there own messages and home page !!!!


MaureeninNY Report 15 Apr 2012 22:09

I think so.Maureen. :-) :-)

(Unless you've been sending messages for me :-D).



GlitterBaby Report 15 Apr 2012 22:22

Well that scared me for a few moments
