I also hope Renee keeps reporting as at present, the slowness of fixes is not her fault.

User Satisfaction% = (problems solved / problems added to tracking system) * 100

Simple, just get the development team to fix more problems

So you guys were talking behind my back. You know I could always NOT add your requests to the tracking system. ;)

I've been watching and I can promise you it was all good, I think the consenus is the wish that the tracking system gets dumped on Bruces desk every monday morning. :D

What about we employ you as a secret insider and instead of pinning things on the forum you pin the top 5 hottest features to Bruces door when he is out. lol

This was fixed in

If true that is good news, maybe if we can push more rm4 bugs forward while Bruceis in productive mode we might get some results.

This topic was actually discussed in an earlier topic. Renee said that this is being worked on and that it is added to her tracking system.

Thanks i do hope that is still true as i believe places are very important to get right and programs need to help and encourage that as much as possible. We all know a name without a place means nothing and the more exact it gets the better.

Asking about a Murphy from Ireland, no chance, a Murphy from Tipperary, Ireland still no chance.

But ask about a Murphy with an association with both St. Marys Church, Tipperary and Hannaghans pub, Tipperary and you are down to about 10 possibles :D

I must also say the promimity report in the new rm5 looks interesting and hopefully can be used to create groups, that combined with the research log and the long overdue new place list might just be enough for me to switch over, providing the current problems have also died down.

I, too, think that Renee does a very good job and that the forum experience is better with her participation and feedback/acknowledgement.

No apoligy needed, i think Rennee does a very good job and I actually feel a little sorry for her being stuck in the middle of frustrated users and lack of development. Vyger built the place details screen in 2 hours working at it on and off, others have told me building the ui would not take much longer, a day at most, populating it and testing it with the data already in the db would take a week max for someone of middle experience.

I work with a lot of guys that are doing this stuff day in day out so my frustration is with RM and I suppose that means Bruce who for some reason refuses to programming utilities that users need to transition to the latest versions, as someone else said recently that should be a first priority, no point in having new features if they are to difficult to use.
