  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

    • Not be a piece of garbage.

      The app has so much promise but is so absolutely annoying. What do you currently offer beyond what can already be accomplished with Facebook (describing Friends and joining a family group)? 1- Allow me to add relatives without asking them to add your app a fifth time. 2- Don't make me duplicate the work my siblings and cousins have already done. 3- Don't make me fill in info that can already be grabbed from Facebook profiles. 4- Add some real functionality beyond what Facebook already does (#1-3 are just to stop being super-annoying).

        • let me rearrange order in which relatives appear

          I arranged them initially, but now that I've added new relatives (cousins of hubby), they appear above hubby, mom, sisters, etc. in the box on my main profile page and I can't find a way to rearrange them.

          • send email reminders for family birthdays and anniversaries

            I'd like to get reminded 7 days before any relative has a birthday or anniversary, and then again 1 day before, just in case I didn't do anything about it the first time.

              We’ve got some pretty neat new options for the notification system planned. We’re hoping to go into beta here in a couple of weeks.

            • Nix the advertizing that looks like its part of the app.

              The fake IQ, challenges, crush ads that look like they are part of the app. stink. I'm dropping the app if they don't go. They are misleading and I cant tell what is part of the program and what is an ad.

                We already got rid of the Crush ads and are working on bringing in more advertising that is more tuned toward our users. The ads currently on the site have cleaned up some as well as they’ve been getting in trouble for being misleading.

                • Fix an email bug:

                  The email I received (below) has links that lead to *my* relatives and family tree, not my brother Gary's. The link to "Gary's photos" gives an "Oops no feed here" message. These appear to be bugs.

                    • Fix the ability to add the relationship

                      When i try to add the relationship of someone, it doesn't save.

                      I've also confirmed relatives and I still get the request from the same person no matter how many times i confirm.

                      there is a blank relative with the stats from an existing relative and i can't delete it. It prompts me to add the relationship for that person (which isn't even a person).

                        We’ve started working through the issue that’s preventing it from working correctly this time. If you’re still having problems we suggest clearing your cache and then trying again. If it’s still not working then, don’t worry we’re still looking into it.

                                For the past (I believe) 2 weeks I've been getting this message when I try to upload a GEDCOM:

                                "We appreciate all the feedback we've recieved from the community on our GEDCOM uploads. Our engineers are actively working to bring GEDCOM uploads to the new version of our app. In the next week, and as soon as uploading is working flawlessly, we will reactivate this feature."

                                  We got rid of the message. We also got rid of the whole GEDCOM tab. We know it’s been a long time but we want it working perfectly when we finally put it up for you.

                                  • fix what you have before adding new stuff

                                    There is so much in this app that doesn't even work as it should. I have had this app for at least a year or so, and hardly anything works as it should. Quit trying to add new stuff until you fix what's there. This could be an awesome app if you would just fix things.

                                    • Fix the bug that makes my mother's name in my relatives list link to a complete stranger.

                                      When I add my mother, only my mother, she appears to show up OK. But when I click her picture in the We're Related Wall item, the resulting page belongs to a complete stranger. It happens if I add her. Or if she adds me. No matter which direction the add comes from, same result. When she's logged in, she sees me fine. It's just me trying to see her that links to the wrong person.

                                        This is a bug in our system we are currently working out.

                                      • fix the browser crash error when opening Family Tree link.

                                        Every time I click the family tree link Internet Explorer has a fatal error and crashes. I have asked one of my relatives to try it, and it has the same problem on their computer as well.

                                          We’ve pretty much cleaned this up. If you’re still having a problem with it, please let us know with the “contact we’re related” button at the bottom of the page.

                                          I would like to scroll and move around the tree faster and more efficiently.
