22nd January 2015 - A round-up of the latest suggestions from the Suggestions Board:

• Forum for people to point out problems they are experiencing
- Thank you Alisdair. As others have said we did consider having such a 'problems' board but we feel it is important for every problem to be dealt with as directly and as quickly as possible, so we would like all issues to be reported to support@genesreunited.co.uk please.

• Get rid of 'marked as answered'
- Thank you Jacqueline. Unfortunately this has indeed been discussed before - I'm afraid that it cannot be changed at the moment but it is still on the list to be investigated.

Please contact support@genesreunited.co.uk with any specific queries!

12th May 2015 Round Up for both April / May

* The FT used to be a lovely blue background, after a while it was changed to boring white. Preference is to choose personal background colour.

- I can see something similar was raised previously but this was for general background. As this specific to FT, it has been raised again as a possible inclusion for future..

* Get rid of 'marked as answered'

- This has been raised previously I can see but as recently re posted and as it seems to be a popular suggestion, we can certainly look into this again.

* Many folk are not familiar with the 'search term construction' requirements for searches within databases. It would be very helpful if genes had some form of guidance box when a member clicks through to Advance Search. (eg use of brackets, quotes, AND, OR, etc.)

- Good idea and very useful – thank you for the suggestion.

10th July 2015 Round Up for June / July

Completed / actioned threads be removed to a sub board within the suggestions board?

Thanks to Joy for this suggestion which I know she did make initially a few years ago, but as this has been raised again just this past week, I thought it would be beneficial to raise this again.
