I have invited some family members to my site. As it is now, the Family News on the front page says:  [This and that person] joined the site. Send a greeting.

 This is a bit misleading, since This and that person hasn't yet joined the site, but they rather have been invited to the site. So, my suggestion is that the text of [This and that person] joined this site will be replaced by [This and that person] has been invited to this site.

Probably I will make many more suggestions in this forum in the near future. This doesn't mean that I am here as a complainer to criticize this womderful software and to fill this forum with complaints, it is rather to make my own suggestions as a contribution to perhaps make the software become even better than it is today.

I totally agree... I hope they will solve the problem soon.

FROM NOW I will stop entering the persons' e-mail: it seems the only way to block this behavior.

is there a possibility to add this feature: ONLY the Site Managerwill recieve updates and news regarding birthday, and the other members of the family site will NOT recieve any updates ?

Thank you

I got a MyHeritage Newsletter email today stating that "[This and that person] joined the site" for every person in my family tree that I entered an email address for yesterday.  This is VERY misleading.  These people have never been invited to join my site, and they are people that I don't want to invite!!!  I can only hope that MyHeritage didn't automatically invite them!!

Objection to: Automatic invite because of entered email addresses

This feature also caught me off guard and now, I have received complaints from an irate aunt and step-mother.  From the aunt:

The site should advise you that any email will receive an automatic response that invites them to join in 'your' (the person adding the email) name.

I kinda feel like they "stole" my email and my name. I can't shake that feeling since I had no input about what happened. I really must protest that it happened.
 
I really enjoy the site, but there should be some descretion on some things that protect people from intrusion.
