I am on the basic tree status, and I have too many people in my tree. I just noticed it and I wanted to know that if I didn't update to a better package if they would delete members of my tree to make it smaller.
It seems that they have just changed the limits for basic membership. It was 1000 people, but they've just cut it down to 500, and increased the price for silver membership from $2.95 to $3.95 per month. I would have appreciated an announcement that this was coming. I had 583 people in my tree, but when I published it again, they only published 500 of them. I still have my original number of members offline, but to get more than 500 published, I would have to upgrade.
I'm glad to know I'm not losing my mind. One day I told my husband I could add about 400 people to the tree under the free membership, then all of a sudden I was over the limit by 100 ...I thought I really missed something. From the way I understand it from the account page and the home page, the extra people just won't show up...they're still on the tree on my computer though. I too, would have appreciated a notice. I knew I was going to have to upgrade eventually, but I wasn't planning to go over the limit for a while. Now that I'm over, I'll just keep adding on to my tree on the computer until I'm ready to upgrade....I still get smart matches on the new additions.
