    After this release it seems all living profiles have both “Location” and “Current Location” on their profile pages with the same data.

      Thanks, Niclas. Our engineers are looking into it.

    It seems as with all these bug fixes and releases it turns out that nothing can be done any more without being forced to subscribe to a subscription of either Geni Plus or Geni Pro, at least that is what I get out of it now that I can’t even send a birthday greetings without being prompt to Geni Plus subscription page and although I check “No thanks, continue” I still cannot send the birthday greeting.

    I like to explore in Geni occasionally. Previously I had purchased Geni Pro but it expired recently. I did not continue the subscription because in order to use search and other Pro features for 2 hours in a month, I have to purchase a full month. This plus is a step in the right direction but seriously: would you rent a hot air balloon for a month in order to get a joyride for 2 hours?

    How about a day pass?

    The problem still exists. Birthday Greetings are inaccessible (cannot be created/sent) because the Pro Subscription screen will not redirect correctly. This problem is consistent, persistent and current. It has NOT been fixed.
