Comments on: Ancestry Member Trees – A New Look for the Person Overview or Profile Page http://blogs.ancestry.com/ancestry/2012/10/19/a-new-look-for-the-person-overview-page/ The official blog of Ancestry Tue, 04 Aug 2015 05:31:01 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.2 By: guptilhttp://blogs.ancestry.com/ancestry/2012/10/19/a-new-look-for-the-person-overview-page/#comment-104388 Wed, 03 Jul 2013 18:39:01 +0000 http://blogs.ancestry.com/ancestry/?p=8303#comment-104388 Thank you for your insight. I have always wondered how a loose cannon like Mark Latham was made leader and now it is explained, the old payback.
What small minded people, hate makes of us all.
And as for Latham, here was a man who called George W. the worst president ever ( he was right there) and then knocked people over in the stampede to shake his hand.
Obviously a man of no substance which explains his weathervane approach to policies.
However, as a political commentator I find Mark both refreshing and entertaining. A candid breath of fresh air who, because of his perceived ill-treatment by the ALP, is even-handed in his commentary, unlike the hacks like Kroger, Reith and Costello who just read from the prayer book and spout propoganda, thus dismissing their own credibility of argument.

browser compatibility problems. Whenever I take a look at your website in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening in Internet Explorer,
it’s got some overlapping issues. I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Apart from that, excellent blog!

BUT SINCE IT IS STILL OPEN, I’LL TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO BE “POLITICALLY INCORRECT” AND WISH EVERYONE A VERY BLESSED CHRISTMAS, AND A HAPPY,
HEALTHY NEW YEAR!

Looks like Ancestry is going to fade into oblivion!

Ok, so this blog is still open and I read the last 3 posts and was prompted to check out the “new way to add records to a person’s profile.” I had ignored it before.

Immediately I noticed it took much longer to load when I had decided to attach a new record. Immediately I noticed a very cluttered appearance and NO way to edit the census day and month of the record I was saving.

I was about to send feedback but realized it was not a procedure I liked at all compared to the current way. I did not want to use the form, which asks questions they want to ask and didn’t have a way for me to answer the way I would like.

So I backed out of that and tried to attach the census record the current way. It kept defaulting to the ugly new way. Finally I had to exit Ancestry so I could get it back to the fast efficient current procedure.

One big fear: THEY ARE GOING TO DUMP THIS ON US!!! There was NO NEED to change the current procedure. Another “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!”

I’m sure I will have more to say when I have time to just fiddle (waste) with it.

THE PROFILE PAGE IS STILL TOO WHITE!!! Yes the blog page has too much white but I don’t spend hours and hours on it as I do on the profile pages.

After 270 comments between Oct 19 and November 15, the same question has to be asked: “why are you changing things that don’t need changing?” – in other words, as most of these posts have said, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!”
Having said that, I think they actually did tone down the “white” on the profile page, although when I do a split screen, I see a variation in color between the two screens, but to my eyes, this blog has a lot of bright “white”.

The changes there have made it more difficult to see what one is doing with a lot of clutter; and please Ancestry… not a choice of more poorly transcribed info out of the records. The changes also force one to make extra steps to attach record to a person profile. The changes there also imply that people are blind…because they use large bold fonts. Ironically they have no prblem addin color or separation in this change…unlike on the person profile page. Will they keep it the old way and give us a choice like old search…while it is in beta we have the choice. Again we live in fear!!!

When I try to access a document it goes to “rootsweb” and an error message, and a “search”, also goes to “rootsweb” and says “no matches found”!
