Hi Larry - Thanks for pointing that out. Gosh I didn't mean to come off as if I worked for Genforum. I just used the user name category in the two posts above (both mine) to extend the title of the message, thus bumping off my username. I figured most people won't click and read the content of the message, and packing it all into the title would be important. Sorry for the confusion!
I'm even more sorry, though, for the lack of responses, except for you. Thought I'd do a trial run in California forum to see if any interest exists in the idea that Genforum is being let to die, or so it seems, since the evidence is clear that owners/managers have the resources to fix a vital central feature (notification system) yet do not.
Either people are not interested, or they don't want to post their opinion about that topic.
Again thanks to you, and all best, from a participant and volunteer researcher, username jchristiansen
