Geni plans to do away with the "How are you related?" box above profiles, reducing it to a small and obscure hyperlink within the profile which opens up to a new page.
We feel this is of great disadvantage to Geni users, especially novices. Why hide away Geni's most important feature?
Please sign our petition with an X to show your support to keep the "How are you related?" box above every profile. Thank you.
"how are you related is certainly a valuable tool for anyone wiht a large
record of ancestors. This is the first time that I have been able to reliably
say how I am related to someone 12 generations back in history.
Perhaps there is an expense to this feature that the company is trying to
eliminate. It would help if they would explain. The program appears to be designed to find those relationships quickly and easily.

Noah is aware of this thread.
I won't speak for him or geni, since I have no role in geni other than "user"... but, given my recent chats with Noah... I suspect this entire thread is based on a misconception.
Victor... I know your curator role gives you more insight into what geni is doing and/or is planning to do... but you really should investigate all the possibilities before assuming the worst.
Erica and any other curators here... if I'm right about from whence this came... I'm shocked that you did not piece together what Victor was talking about.
I'm even more shocked that you did not see through this as nothing more than a bad reaction to something that has not yet happened (and likely won't).

Hey , good news all! Geni took heed of our cries and plans to keep the pathway box above profiles.
This petition was driven by a mock- up design created by the Geni team of the new profile page. Myself and others hoped that through this petition , we could everyone a voice to let Geni know how sorely missed this feature would have been. Today they responded with a new mock -up, returning the "How are you related ?" box back to profiles .
Thank you everyone for showing your support !
