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).56 votes
We’re always working to make the app better and less annoying.
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.812 votes
We’re working on it and hopefully we’re close.
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.351 votes
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.
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.181 votes
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.
I'm fed up with the poor performance of this app. 9/10 I get this page is not available.6 votes
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.
Gary Scullin added you as his brother on We're Related.

I wish "We're Related" would let me delete comments, typos and other mistakes I've made or added to the Family Stream.10 votes
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).1,082 votes
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.
let me delete some relatives I added someone by mistake andnow I am stuck with them on my relatives list.183 votes
We’re aware that the delete button is not working for every user and are looking into it. Hopefully we’ll have a solution soon.
For those of us with large trees developed over several years, switching between the ancestor and descendant trees is essential for navigation the database.39 votes

We’re working on a new version of the tree that will allow you to do this.
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."207 votes
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.
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.4 votes
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.6 votes
This is a bug in our system we are currently working out.
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.52 votes
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.5 votes
