New Person Page dislikes
The only hopes I have for this project are for the project to never happen.
It's awful. It's not user friendly. It does not fit on the screen. Implementation of this new page will only cause more people to stop using the service or to make mistakes in the tree. The banner is blindly huge. The information is harder to find and not in a useful order. The family structures are harder to understand because you can't see as much on the screen as you used to.
All hints and issues are hidden. Having to click on 3 dots to open up Research Helps to even see if there are available records to attach is not helpful. Having the records pop up from the bottom of the screen and then only show a very small portion of the source is completely infuriating.
You can't even tell if the places in the vital information are recognized places until you click on edit. That's more work when you used to be able to just visually see that the place was recognized with the GPS placement symbol.
Stop trying to become Ancestry or MyHeritage. We don't need kitschy name meanings or unrealistic Traditional dress avatars.
We need clear, concise pages with easily readable and complete information. Exactly like what we have had the past few years. Please do not change what so many of us like about this world tree just to make it more pretty. You are ruining the ease of use for vanity's sake. Please stop.
We use Familysearch because it is easier to use in every way.
Sorry, not sorry.
Please do not implement this project.3
@RMurray2 We know the person page is used more than any other page on the site. There is a large demographic of users that need to be supported. We have to consider everything from culture, language, age, physical needs and device availability. I can assure you the business case for updating the person page is real. We need to get it right before we decommission the older technology.
We’ve made the new page available in this optional way so we can make the right adjustments, before forcing everyone to use it.
Please help us make the right improvements to the new person page so everyone can benefit.
From your commments above, about the location of things, it seems your experience on the new person page is being inhibited by your device, screen size, zoom and/or resolution settings.
Could you give us some details about your setup? I'd like to run through it so I can see your experience.
To make the page less busy, we decide to remove the pins and just tell you when there is a problem. It should be much easier to scan the page for standarization problems. Also, if you hover your mouse over the place text the standard will display in a tool tip with your chosen language.0
