Thank you so much. Your comments are well said, and we really appreciate that you are takign the time to describe your impressions and we are taking your sugestions seriously as a improvement opportunity.
The only thing I do not understand is: why would you like to go back to FTBv5? How is that related to your observations about the Smart Matches feature on the Family Site?
You appear to be from Scandinavia with Scandinavian names likely on your tree. I have a few Scandinavian names on my tree and not one match among them has been correct. I am afraid that SM may not do well with Scandinavian names. Just a hunch anyway.
I recently upgraded to Premium Plan and whilst it worked one off time, since then whenever I attempt to publish or smart match I get the message - Define Publishing settings for the project. The software is unable to communicate with MyHeritage.com. Please make sure your computer is connected to the internet.
I did attempt to make FamilyHeritage exceptions in my anti-virus program and firewall (not sure if it is done properly) but all to no avail and I am getting extremely frustrated seeing I have paid for this and it is not working. Any suggestions would be gratefully received.
We don't mean to offend other users who are using the forums to get answers!
The reason why we may decide to send you an email rather than answer on the forums is that we need to provide you with or ask you to provide us with personal information that is not appropriate to share on the forums for everyone to see (email address, family site link, etc.).
We're not trying to hide anything from you, rather making sure to protect you and your personal information.
We hope you'll understand.
By the way, are you having similar problems as the person in this post or are you just giving us a heads up?
As I've told.. the smartmatching is a few hours of work to get a perfect sollution..
Implementing it though... but that is not any problem. The problem is to make a theory work.
If the webpages of smartmatches was showed with full dates in stead of just years, I could make my own fully working smartmatch, reading sourcecode of webpages that is showing all results in stead of just up to 50.
And then I even haven't any place of birth nor death to do matching even better..
I thought of making me a crawler.. but.. I have to stop somewhere... :)
A crawler would eliminate any further search. = No fun..
I was having the same problem - over and over and over. Rejecting and ignoring these "not so Smart Matches" would only last a max of 12 hrs (or so it seemed).
Rather than delete my person, what I did was add spaces to the names and dates. That way, I can still read it ... dumb computer doesn't think of the spaces as a match. Viola --- haven't had a "not so Smart Match" in over a month!
I think that when somebody posts a new tree with the EXACT same information(WHICH I HATE!) it just makes a new match for you to reject and/or ignore. I have 24 pages of matching trees with people that I have confirmed or rejected. I have 88 pages of trees which I have seen fit to ignore for one reason or another, many because they were just duplicate trees from the same member with the very same matches in them.
