It would be great to have an RSS feed of the Family News to share it on other sites (like a blog or FriendFeed). It would help us share with non-MyHeritage members (which may be interested to join the site later on).
Also having an iCal feed of the Upcoming Events would allow us to get these events in our favorite calandar tool.
When MyHeritage sends an e-mail inviting a family member (either because an e-mail was added or user clicked on "Invite more members") the e-mail displays as coming from MyHeritage Invitation. Many recipients don't know who that is and just delete the e-mail as SPAM.
I suggest you have the "From:" changed to the e-mail address of the member that was logged on. They will recognize that name right away.
One of my grand fathers has married his elder sisters daughter ! Which is an acceptable custom and culture in most part of India (in the very old days) - When building the tree - I found it was not possible to establish this relation ship - am I missing some thing...is there a way ?
Is there a blog available for members within the family tree - So that each member can update thier blog, This can be associated to thier profile. Being a family chart all family members visiting the site will have a good time reading through the blog and updating it. Particularly helpful when we make a trip overseas and would want to keep our family (extended family) updated ?
I have an 85th family reunion coming in 18 months, and as part of the planning, we would really like to have a family book to print. something that relates the tree, with pictures and stories. Any plans to provide such an option?
It would be nice if, on a family tree made on the website, when you click on an individual you could see who edited the person and what changes they made.
For instance, I can put in information about my uncle. My dad can edit it, my uncles wife can edit it, and my brother can edit it. My dad is more likely to remember where his younger brother was born, my aunt is more likely to remember what his birthday is, and my brother isn't likely to remember as much as either of them. If I could track changes, it would be easy to take the information that each individual would know the best and keep it in the tree, while getting rid of bad information and going back to something that was there before.
So if my dad were to add in his brother's birthplace and birthday, and my aunt came and edited the birthday, I'd like to know that she edited it to something new and keep her edit. If my brother then came and edited both the birthplace and the birthday to something new, I'd like to know that she edited them, and realize that my brother doesn't know that much about my uncle, and put back in what my dad and my aunt had put in.
Very good sugestion. I just posted a question asking if this was possible. Aparently not. The whole concept of "Family tree 2.0" where all are contributing with their own materil is very innovative, and exciting, BUT, you need to have a adminsitraoor role that can keep track of changes, evaluate if the change are correct, and even be able to approve changes if possilbe.
This is a wonderful sugestion. I would like to see specific changes to my tree by members of my site. It could be set up along the same format as the smart match where you see the original info next to the new info.
I would vote for this features as well. As the number of members on my site passes 40, I am seeing an increase in the number posting information and tagging and uploading images. The home page is full of notices that members have added people, facts or photos, but I have not found a way of checking to see what they actually did. I like the tagging of the information by who entered or edited it. In addition it would be useful to have a report of that information as I would also like to update my off lint genealogy software to include the new information and the source.
My site almost instantly outgrew the free version and I am now approaching the limits of the first paid level, with the site active for about three months. The activity is such that I can no longer manually track the changes.
хорошо бы, чтобы была возможность в текстах на сайте (в приветствии, в статьях, в новостях, в примечаниях) ставить ссылки на имена. Например, пишу я в статье: "По словам моего дедушки Иванова А.О....." И все желающие могли бы кликнуть на имя и перейти на страницу об Иванове И.И.
Спасибо за внимание,
It would be very nice to have the following option: when i write in the introduction, in any text or in news a name, it should be a hypertext link and any member of my site could visit a page of that person. For example, i write: "As my grandfather Ivanov A.O. told..." and any member could visit a page about Ivanov A.O.
Спасибо Вам большое за предложение! Я буду рада добавить его для дальнейшего рассмотрения.
Что касается русских имен, возможно здесь будет сложнее, потому что, если Вы склоняете фамилию и имя, то эта форма оличается от той, в которой указано имя в дереве и на генеалогической странице данного человека. Однако, в любом случае, Ваше предложение очень интересное и буду рада добавить его для рассмотрения.
I agree this feature is strongly needed in today's uncertain world...
I would also like to see that the administrator, after adding someone as a member and inviting them, to be able to go back in and change that person's email address if they find it is the wrong one (but still active) so that it doesn't come up as an invalid address...
I would support this privacy feature as well. Even people that I invite, but hey have not accepted yet, are visible. The admin entering the e-mail by default should be hidden. The member should be able to make it visible if they choose. Clicking on the name would send internal mail through the site to them without giving away their email address.Gord
