For me, Member Connect has been screwed up for about a year. Messages either don't appear for days/weeks or are well over a week old before they show up. I rarely get an email telling me someone has responded to any questions I've left on Message Boards. A long time ago I'd get emails to any topic I posted to an existing thread on Messae Boards or topic I initiated. Couldn't tell you last time I got an email. And, yes, I check the "send me an alert when anyone replies" box when I leave messages on Message Boards.
I'd like to know how to stop some of the Member Connect messages. I get a lot of messages for things I've only viewed, not commented on or aren't any of my family names I'm researching. ( I also never lift anyone's pictures, documents or data from other people's trees.) For example a few years ago I once looked at the census to see if they included the White House when they did census, so I pulled up Abraham Lincoln. I only looked at the census, period. For several years when anyone does something with Lincoln I get a Member Connect for him regularily. How do I stop something I'm not interested in, didn't add info, change anything, etc. I don't understand how this process works. Actually I've never understood exactly what triggers/constitutes "member connect" as it seems to have a mind of its own.
