Certainty anomaly

I have noticed that if I select maximum stars for the certainty of an individual in my tree, then all other members are given certainty. The same is true if I select not certain. Is this me or a glitch in the coding?

David, it is better if you post your query on one of the active boards. Genealogy Chat is probably the most relevant.

This board was intended for suggestions for improvements to the site but Genes Reunited have stopped responding to the suggestions made so the board is effectively closed and helpers look at it very infrequently.

You could ask support directly by email.

Good Morning David,

Thank you for your email with the screenshot and browser information.

I have been able to replicate this on my end and have flagged this with our tree team for further investigation on your behalf.

Once I hear back from them with any information regarding this I will be back in touch.

Kind Regards,

Thank you for posting that reply David. I am surprised no one has found that before.
