Okay, so maybe daWife didn't drink enough of that bottle of wine at dinner ... or, maybe I just like to complain ... nah, I just want this place to get better ... it's a noble effort ... only been here a couple of months so just slap me side-o-the-head ... some thoughts:
- Seems like the biggest problem here is duplicates (can you say triplicate, quadruplicate ... and on and on) ... yikes! Think the 'gedcom' disaster prior to mid-December may be the major cause but the search/match software is right up there. I input a new person and I'm presented with a list of hundreds of possible matches. I've input a spouse and I look at the first entry in the list ... different spouse ... why is it on the list? I've input a birth date and I get folks that couldn't have been born at that time ... dad wasn't born yet, dad was dead, marriage date is out of whack ... YIKES! So, what happens? Create new entry ... duh!
- Oh, and name spellings ... not sure what to do about that ... as an exercise for the user ... in different windows search for surnames ... Parratt, Parrat, Parrott, Parrot ... well, not quite a bazillion similar folks but enough to cause concern.
- Ah, and my favorite complaint ... initiating a merge ... and apologies to those few folks that acutally respond ... why don't these people approve those merges? They're just sitting there ... and the 'rule' is you wati for two months ... what? Should be a week max ... can't they read their e-mail and do something?
Okay ... I feel better now ... another couple shots of limoncello and I'll be able to sleep ... lol
Sorry for the rant ...
