Hi Bob thanks for the answer although I still don't understand what is happening. I haven't changed my name or username in my profile since I joined that I can remember. When I search for the only surname I can register (Weston), it shows my real name not my chatname! Confused ???

Hi Dinor,

I've now changed your name in the SIT to Dinor (and sent you a PM :) )

I'm as guilty as anyone of not taking the time to keep my list of interests up to date. I haven't added to it since joining... And believe me the list is much longer now!

Therein lies part of the problem I suspect. We're all busy working on our research, creating web sites, transcribing etc. And entering these interests, even if it would be beneficial to many, seems to get relegated to the bottom of the list.

A suggestion which I made once before, and which could be accomodated in the interests page, is to include a members website address so that it is visible without having to go into profiles. That way, if someone shares some of your interests, they can go take a look before making contact. In my view this would add to the usefulness of RootsChat, would result in more exchanges between members, and as a by product, would boost the search engine rankings of member sites, therefore enabling new researchers to find information otherwise hidden in the dusty corners of the internet.

I'd be interested in other people's views.

I didn't really get the SIT idea until I read this thread - I've now added the main names that I'm researching. I'll try to keep it up-to-date!

maybe I need a reminder every Dec 31 - to make a New Year Resolution!

We all need a reminder from time to time!  Thanks you've reminded me to go and add some new surnames.
