Ancestry's hint update

Post by Johnr65 » 09 Feb 2021 13:28

Has anyone noticed that since Ancestry's last update, the 'hint' system has added an extra step for us to locate the relevant record which is deplorable, making the research even longer than before!
Do you think it is because the programmers are not researchers and thus don't know what we need, or is it Ancestry's way of making us spend more time on research so as to make even more money?
It seems to me that they've never heard of the old adage 'if it ain't broke don't mend it' they previously messed up the message system so that now takes ages to access!

I agree, it is ridiclous. As you say, it takes ages to load the message screen, then your left with a mainly blank screen, with only a tiny space at bottom of screen for you to write your reply.
