As you might have noticed the site is under heavy maintenance, several things will change but in the end they will boost the user experience significantly. As soon as we are done with the server work the forums will be for members only. There is a full integration with all systems and social media and people will have the possibility to share their genealogy and much more. A new editor interface will make work much easier, and there will be no more complicated menus. There is however one caveat to all of this. Over the past decade we managed to keep our forums and a lot of content open for the public. This will change, there will be a public FAQ and Learning Center together with a public blog. All other content will be for members only. Users can decide if they want their own content in the blog or pedigree be accessible by the public or not. We understand this might come somewhat as a surprise but the costs of keeping everything open is too high and we do not get enough donations and membership fees to maintain the 25000 visitors per month. If you have suggestions or comments, feel free to post them in the comment section. We will soon be done with the server work and post a message here.
