Im always logged in, cant see any reason not to be. If for some reason I do get logged out I have to re set my password because I can never remember it. 

On the subject of old posts, I was contacted just yesterday by someone who found an old one of mine. Wed been in contact years ago but lost touch.

I first found Rootschat after I searched for a name that had cropped up in my research.  It was from a post about a year old and the response helped me place him and the writer of an old postcard I found.  He was married to a descendant of my two times great grandmothers sister and she was from another line descended from that same sister.  Without this help I would not have realised there was another branch of the family in Australia.  If the poster had not been contacted I may never have found them.

Indeed  :D.  I wouldnt agree with deleting any member no matter how long they had been inactive.

If we are notified that a RootsChatter has passed away, their profile is edited to show

Deceased Rest In Peace



I have seen this once or twice, and would like to say this.  If  the Rootschatter whose profile is marked in this way is known to have been a Christian, then of course the is fine, but not all of us are Christians.

I think or + are recognised symbols indicating death in many countries.
Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!

Thanks, I thought it was just a Christian thing being used too generally -like saying 'Christian name when 'fore name' is what is meant.  Still, I'd take a guess that it is more likely to be used in nominally Christian countries.

Not at all. How on earth can the user's activity pattern be revealing to complete strangers? If, for example, I'm not online it doesn't mean that I'm away from home. I could be out in the garden, doing housework, making meals, doing something else on my computer or any number of things. It also doesn't mean that my house is empty waiting to be burgled as there are others in the household.

Absolutely true aghadowey - I quite often nip off to do something else for a while then come back and carry on with whatever I was doing on the computer.

i have also used Rc when not at home

Must admit I only very rarely log out, like PharmaT I can often use different machines - and I hate trying to remember fresh passwords!
