    3. Anne, Thank you. It is very frustrating. To be clear: The existing Boards have a button you can click to become the Administrator of an existing Board. Their response, if you click that button, is they will not create a new Board. I spent my career managing the production of complex software. It is clear to me that Ancestry has no clue how to do this. Did anyone ever hear them mention a software version, a beta test, or a release date? It seems to me they are chasing an imaginary pot of gold at the end of the DNA testing rainbow.

    3. Keith- I'm not sure this is what is happening BUT I can tell you that due to glitches as they work on the boards currently, there are a lot of boards that have a Volunteer to Admin link on them that already have an admin. Obviously that doesn't explain why the rejection says they won't create a new board which is not what you were asking for but it may actually be that the existing board already has an admin despite the volunteer notice.

    3. Through out the last month or so I've been getting all these emails about the list closing. If I was ever a list owner, I've forgotten about it. I keep wondering if I've missed something I should have been tending to or why am I on the list owners mailing list? Is there any way to find out?

    3. I wouldn't worry about it at this point. I will say you help to prove my belief that lists really died (most of them) long ago. This is one reason I didn't move any of my lists to io or elsewhere and have emphasized that we have allied boards (which hopefully will be fixed and the glitches tended to) and Facebok groups.

    3. I agree that many lists died years ago. The vast majority of the surname lists are the ones that totally fell asleep and should not be considered for moving. I do have some county lists I moved to groups.io that were long dead on RW that actually perked back to life.

I wasn't thrilled about moving several hundred county lists, but after some serious thought, I did the migration. I apologize to anyone I may have been crabby to the past month and a half. :) Let's keep at it with Ancestry to fix the boards before they suffer a similar fate.
