You could’ve at least taken me to dinner first … — 5 Comments

  1. “No one with a PAID account would possibly upload a duplicate profile.”

    HA! Like Find A Grave, right? Entire cemeteries are duplicated! ROTFLMAO!

    And just to be clear, I carry absolutely no weight whatsoever. Except on my own bones. 😉

    Everything else you’ve said = AGREED!

  2. Jenny,

    I’ll take you to dinner. I hope you’re still following along and contributing to the conversation on the Geni blog. We have some fixes that we’re releasing today that should make searching and finding your profiles easier. There were some unexpected difficulties surrounding that when we made the account updates.

    It’s also important to understand that Geni considers the profiles to be “OUR” profiles (not Geni’s, but everyone’s). That’s so much different than the “MY” and “YOUR” tree philosophy that most genealogists have, and it seems that a lot of people have trouble understanding that. I’m happy to talk more with you about it if you think it would help.

    Thanks for taking the time to write and care about Geni.

  3. Thanks for taking the time to comment, George. I do appreciate it. Unfortunately, I don’t think it will make a difference at this point. I’m all about sharing. I just don’t think that my hard work (and proof) should be so easily discounted because I’m not a Pro user. Take away the merge-on-a-whim option and make it so I can search the entire site, and I might consider returning. Heck, I might even become a paying customer. And you won’t even have to spring for a meal.
