  1. improve Possible Relatives & Add Relatives functionality

    After user clicks “Add<fb friend> as your relative” remove that friend from the list of “Possible Relatives”

    If a friend is already a relative then remove that friend from the “Add Relative” and “Possible Relatives” lists.

    For Possible Relatives, primary sort Facebook Friends in alphanumerical order, then secondary sort “People You May Know” in alphanumerical order.

    • recognize adopted/reunited branches as family tree

      Many of us are reunited adoptees. We consider both our birth and adopted families as part of our family tree.

        • Allow support for Unicode characters

          As it is We're Related isn't optimised for use with other languages than english. ASCII, which I'm guessing that the application uses, is very limited in its use since it doesn't include many foreign characters used in most european countries.

          Unicode on the other hand is much more universal in its use, since it supports the aforementioned characters. Essentially Unicode would make the application much more appealing to international users and it is relatively simple to implement in most cases.

            • No name only Relative and no option to edit or delete

              Please fix or make fixable when the name of the relative does not show. Several of my relatives now have their name missing, and the only way to find out who they are is by comparing status comments to my friends list.

                • Photo selection by user

                  I don't like the way the application automatically populates every photo album from your own and your relatives' facebook accounts. I would rather have this photo space separate from those and have the option to select which pictures I want shown in connection to my family tree. I don't necessarily want to see my brother's vacation photos of landscapes on my family tree photo space.

                    If you don’t want a certain family member or members of your family to see your facebook photos, you can limit the privacy on your facebook account for the photos. The limitations of who can see the photos will carry over to We’re Related. We’re also working on a system where you can choose what is imported.

                    • let me to share/email my family tree with the people in it.

                      I've created a family tree and I would like to be able to share it with or send it to the relatives in the tree (who use "We're Related" on Facebook). Is there such an option?

                      If so, I couldn't find it. I borrowed my mother's account the other day to see if I could access my tree from her account, but it wouldn't allow it. While using her account, I clicked on something asking for permission to view, but when I signed back into my account I didn't see any requests from my mother's account.

                      Thanks! Love the application!

                      • didn't understand the connect link. now can't get rid of it

                        I accidentally clicked on the "connect." not a bright move! Now my deceased grandmother is my son! Good grief. I can't remove it either! What a system! I was typing along on another box and didn't realize my typo- and can't fix that either. What the heck!
                        Would be nice if this was a bit more user friendly. PLEASE. Good overall concept, just needs tweaking!
                        Please allow simple editing like edit! Edit = fixing. I click on the pencil to edit to remove my son that I accidentally clicked on, but guess what? It didn't remove it. Shouldn't edit =…

                          You can click the “edit” button in the corner and change who it the relative in the tree is “linked” to. Under the picture in the edit box, there is an option to “unlink” if it’s a relative that does not have a facebook account.

                        • fix the problem with linking facebook friends

                          i have tried IE and FireFox, but I cannot get "We're Related" to link a facebook friend with one of my family tree members. I click and click and click and click and click, but nothing happens!! PLEASE FIX THIS!!!

                                    • Stop subcribing to intrusive adware.It is very offensive.I will delete my account if this isn't fixd

                                      I don't enjoy clicking onto the site after your notification only to be attacked by an ad that claims to be my windows program and my computer is under attack.It then repeatedly tries to initiate downloads of their system.I shouldn't have to deal with crap like this on a supposedly reputable website.These and the other adscams like the IQ test and the win a computer are very offensive.Also false and misleading.If this huge problem isn't corrected I will delete my acct and advise all relatives to do the same.Your records should make clear that would cover possibly 230 or more…

                                      • let me tick a box to say the relation is decreased

                                        At present I do not know when some of my relations have passed away, but since they were born in the 1800's etc, they are deceased.

                                        I would like a tick box or something to indicate this so my "living relatives" box is correct.

                                        Thank you.
