Am I the only one you thinks that if a tree is posted and then not updated for- say four or five YEARS. then one day someone will pop along and gather all the smartmatches is fantasy.
I think the second coming of Christ is more likley.
I say ban ALL trees that are not within the current subscription period.
As I suggest most subscriptions would be one or two years then that would determine a viable time to consider that any resonable student of Genealogy might come back and re-kindle. Else we have thousands of smartmatches that are NEVER going to be VALID.
Come on my heritage get the head out of the idealic sand and into the real world. Too many smartmatches are driving people away from myheritage. I cant waith for my two year subscription to expiore- becuse I doubt I will re-new.
Well Said I had Updated from a tree I thought was Up to date instead I have caused myself hours of cleaning and re-establishing the correct information, we are paying for a service which should be kept up to date and eliminating people who have not paid or have not worked on their trees for years.
I am still in the process of cleaning out dated information, My subscription runs out Jan 2012 I will be changing to Ancetory.com
How can you easily determine when a tree was last updated? Also, if and when I decide that my research is "finished", where would you suggest the final resting spot for the tree to be? I would love to easily determine whether a tree research project is active or abandoned? My pet peeve is eight versions of a tree from the same manager.
When you click "view matches" for a tree, there's a little blue bar just above the matches and it tells you the date it was last updated. Can't argue with the multiple trees either. I try to confirm one tree and ignore all the others a person has which all say the same thing. Sometimes it's hard to keep track of though, and some people actually do have different trees with different people in them, so you can't just go by their name. That's pretty rare as far as I can see.
Thanks for the tip. Between responding only to the trees with crown icons (Premium), checking the last update date, and "ignoring" all the other SMs, I feel renewed in my attempts to wade through the SMs!
