1) I expect to increase the number of allotted accounts per licensed copy of RootsMagic in the future based on what I have seen from current account usage. You can get two more websites with a second copy, but if you are willing to wait, you should be able to get more with one account eventually. I won't promise any timeline at this point.
Good to hear. I do understand you putting limitations when you are offering a free account though.
BTW, it seems to me that most people actually have several database on their one website. I guess your website was only designed to be linked to. That means RM users have to find another option for their main website and link to each database. I have a GoogleSite I can do this with, but if I didn't have that option, then I might be either stuck with trying to figure out what to do, and/or paying for another website. Or if I at some point decide I don't like GoogleSites, then I'm stuck with finding another option. Have you thought about providing at least a simple landing/introduction page and then links to each database a RM user uploads?
2) You should be able to pick any person in your database as the root person for your website.
Yes, I hopefully resolved this issue. My root person was not among those selected for uploading. Duh!
4) I just asked support what they tell people who ask about licenses, and was told: "We register the software to the household,
so as long as you own the computers, it's not a problem to put it on any computers that you own." I'm not sure what the wording is in the official license, but this is what RootsMagic staff will tell you.
You know we get so much to read, I'm afraid I'm guilty of scanning. I missed the "at the same time" phrase at the end of the long sentence. I stand corrected and glad to be.
I'm curious why you are nervous about the online databases. If you have questions about security or how your data is used, I'd be happy to answer them for you.
Not sure what I said that conveyed that. What I am concerned about is sharing information I shouldn't share or that someone might not want me to share. So I'm taking my time getting started with this. I don't want family members who are still living offended by something in my database. If I don't put it there, I will lose it, but some things are sensitive to immediate descendants. I need to identify these particular facts and notes and privatize them. I'm so glad RM makes that easy to do individually and not just globally. RM has always blown the other programs away when it comes to flexibility, as well as other things. I'm rooting for you to continue to improve and make all of our family research software wishes come true.
BTW, when I was considering what other products to bundle with my new RM6, I liked all of them. What I don't like is having to export to them to get them to work. I wish they would work side by side with RM so I didn't have to go through that process. Any chance that can happen? I realize some of these are stand-alone and work with other genealogy software, but I would like to see a way to use them more as an extension or addition to the RM software instead.
