:confused: I've got 10 now and 3 listings. If I had 4 I'd assume it would be two thumbs up and two thumbs down canceling each other.

That would be nice. We sure don't need yet another login, but what about the non-members? Or is this part of the incentive to upgrade to the full product? :D

We are in the process of installing a significant update to MLS. Can you tell me how they want us to back up the files? Who can tell me what this contains? If you're talking about Desktop 5.5, it came with a set of written instructions. Is there something you're not clear on, or did the papers not ...

When I click on "User CP" near the top left, the first thing I see is my reputation - who added and when.

That's a pretty broad subject. I do remember when our ward was shipped a nice new IBM PS/ValuePoint 486-25 to run MIS. As well as our Epson 386-16 that was used to run FamilySearch using CDs. (I miss that CD reader. It used caddies so the patron never touched the CDs. They just handled the whole car...

If you could explain what a non-MLS user might do on the computer, I would appreciate it. The Sunday Bulletin is a good start. In some cases they may use the ward machine to help out with other tasks such as PAF for folks who don't have a computer. Ages and ages ago that was actually encouraged. I ...

We will always need an option to have genealogy stored and accessed locally on our personal computers. The simple example for me would be when I'm out in the middle of nowhere, checking out a graveyard and need to pull something up in PAF to see where the information I'm gathering does or doesn't f...

Rather than depend on only commercial products to fill this gap, I would love to see an Open Source project (even if it has yet to be created) to fill this gap and utilize the new Family Search API. Just as a note there are FREE commercial products that do what PAF does and include the LDS ordnance...

Ohhhhh, I think there's something to that. It's either reply or a time thing. I don't see the edit button on my old posts. I do see the edit button on the one you just replied to, but then it was moved to this thread.
