Before the big crash I could send collaboration requests to the new people who joined the collaboration pool. Recently, whenever I open a profile of a new member of the collaboration pool, the icon for requesting to collaborate is missing. Any idea whay it is is and is there a way around it?

Are you looking on the "Actions" pull-down menu?

[[54] What was the reason for moving it there?

Collaboration is such an essential part of Geni you would think it would be where it is easily found.

Where it was!!!

There are a lot of reasons a product team may choose one layout over another.

Angus, I like this place more, however, at first I did not see it either.
Becauser there is not yet a good instruction to users how to work on Geni, differences make no problem now, only users have to change a routine, perhaps all users have to be sent a welcome-message in which the mentioning of the blog with changes on Geni

Well I for one, liked the old place better.
I understand the benefits of hoovering up the buttons previously scattered all over the page and regrouping them in a nice tidy drop down meny.

But the old place for the collaborate button was more intuitive, as the frontpage of a profile immediately would show me if there was a collaborate request pending. Or not.

Just my ten cent's worth of thoughts...

As now most actions and also pending statuses are hidde under Actions - I think that we will need some more status icons near name fields:
A) Family Group member (such icon is currently only used in newsfeed and at wall/questbook)
B) Collaboration request pending
C) Family Request Pending
D) Follower (Follows me)
E) Following (I Follow him/her)

And all these icons (like also Collaborator, PRO, Curator, MP, Popular <100>) shall be displayed all time and in all lists;
Discussions, Projects, Popular, Persons, Followers, Fellowing, Collaborators, Documents/Comments etc.

Mike, once in a while the esteemed "project team" should swallow its pride and admit that their idea wasn't that great...
