I am for change, especially if it is for the better.
But at Geni lately there is CONSTANT change... of many things at once, which doesn't give us time to reajust to the new formats.
I was trying to find what a fellow "family member" wrote to me recently, searched for the small envelope sign at the top right of the page... and poof!!! it is gone.
How do I search for sent and received mail??????????


Also wherever I turn, you try to shove down my throat Geni PRO. Stop it!!!
Make it a pay only site, like some others, but stop the harrasment.

If anybody else is as frustrated as I am, please raise your voices.

@angus woods-salomon

Thank you!!!

After spending some more time checking for it, I figured it out by myself.
Since you were so nice, amybe you can tell me what happened to the "home" tag, and if something else is replacing it?

The home tag is useless since you get the same by clicking the GENI icon on the top of the screen

Yaacov, the "home tag is useless" if you know that the GENI icon serves the same purpose. Unfortunately, that is not intuitively obvious and many people are left "scratching their heads" when they no longer see a "home" tag. It's a minor issue, but just one more thing that adds to the growing frustration people feel.

Barbara, You're right of course,
"user interface" should be consistent so users can act almost automatically when doing frequent actions
This change needed to published by Geni.
