I uploaded 14 marriage records and death records today. 12 posted without an issue, but 2 of them were restricted. Same format, same source, even the same family surname.
Can we please retrain the AI?
@Áine Ni Donnghaile
We are sorry you received the Restricted notice after uploading your records. From your comment, it sounds like you have experienced this problem before. If so, you know you will receive an email that you can reply directly to. A team will review your response and help resolve the issue.
For the benefit of others who may read your post, we are attaching an article from the Help Center with information about the Restricted Notice and the email you can reply to for help.
Thank you for participating in the FamilySearch Community.
With each restriction you should be getting a corresponding email
If you feel the restriction is in error - simply reply to the email with THREE words "Restricted in Error"
9 times out of 10 - just those three words will result in the item being un-restricted
I am personally interested in better understanding photos like the ones you report - and what specifically is triggering the restriction (it is done by a non human auto mated process) - if you dont mind me asking - Id be interested to receive a copy of the image if you don't mind sharing so I can analyze what in the image is triggering the restriction. ( email@example.com )
Contrary to the prior message you got - I do not believe that submitting a 2nd time - will result in a different outcome (since it is a computerized automated process analyzing the content of the image - and not a human being).
BUT replies to the restriction email - do go to a human being - which will normally end up in the item being released.
Yes, @ToblerCJ I have sadly experienced this problem repeatedly and regularly, and I was told by a MOD to post here when I had the problem again. I'm sorry if my post has bothered you. Have a wonderful weekend.
I'm sure ToblerCJ was not "bothered" by your comment.
Please let us know if you received a corresponding email with your image restrictions.
Replying to it will help you resolve your restriction.
Your post is very much appreciated. We are here to serve and glad to help. Since I realized you had experienced this restricted message before, my answer was designed to help someone else who might have the same experience and not realize there would be an email to help them resolve the problem. Often times people do not see the email, or it is in their spam folder, so we like to bring that to their attention.
Please, never hesitate to post in the Community. We are all here to help each other.
For MANY months, my uploads were restricted, without any email notification.
On this occasion, I received the email, and I responded asking for a review.
Since another mod had been kind enough to help on one of the MANY other times, and had asked me to post here if it happened again, I did so.
Just a few minutes ago, I received a reply from SLC confirming that the review showed there was no problem. Again.
I have no idea why you are referring to stalking.
simply trying to help you resolve your problem.
Glad that what I suggested worked.
we are all here in the community to help each other out.
My mention of your stalking has "disappeared" but you don't know what I mean. iI have politely asked you to go bother someone else, please.
So sorry if you felt bothered . . .
That was never the intent - we are all trying to be as helpful as we can here.
nothing but helpful comments above.
You have contacted me privately. I have asked you to stop. You seem to believe that I have followed your suggestions. You or one of your cohorts has edited/deleted my comments. That amounts to stalking.
all my responses here have been in public forum and to answer your questions
not sure what you are referring to as private messaging. . .
Posted to my wall, stalker
I would ask - politely - why my comments have been edited. If you want to delete me or boot me, that's your option. But to edit my post, without any notice that my comment/post has been edited, is inappropriate.
This has been an interesting thread, @Áine Ni Donnghaile. Our Code of Conduct for using the Community does ask us to assist one another in a friendly, kind manner. While repeated contact after asking someone to quite contacting us is not really "stalking" it is easy in this day and age to feel uncomfortable with any contact from someone we have asked not to make contact with us.
Regarding removing or editing posts, please review the Code of Conduct which does explain that Moderators have the right to edit comments that they feel could be embarrassing to others, even if the embarrassment is unintentional. Here are some excerpts from the Code of Conduct that we believe are important to repeat here:
Please adhere to these these standards when you communicate with others in any of our online forums:
We do not permit these inappropriate behaviors:
Enforcement is typically one of these actions:
With this in mind, we do not see where @Dennis J Yancey has done anything more than to make certain you were not posting records from other sites that might be considered copyright or intellectual rights enfringement.
Also with this in mind, when @Áine Ni Donnghaile says she wants no more contact either through a private message or through her public post, that request should be respected.
Finally, regarding Restricted memories: the automated process sometimes does restrict in error which is why the email sent to make you aware of the restriction should be answered if you feel there is an error. Any time your see a restricted image but did not receive an email, which has happened in the past, simply remove the memory and then try uploading it again. Often the second screening will allow the memory to stay.
Interesting to note that someone - not me - has marked a response to this thread as accepted as best answer.
And, once again today, a document, in my own words, showing how 2 families are related, has been marked as an unacceptable submission.
FamilySearch - why don't you just turn off the option to upload rather than just making it so difficult that we give up?
Attention: @CJTobler & @Mark McLemore
As an aside ...
I would humbly suggest, that "Image Moderation" in BOTH, "Family Tree" and, the "Community.FamilySearch" Forum, is ALMOST 'Out of Control' ...
Over the last couple of Days (including Today); and, just through the the "Community.FamilySearch" Forum, I have had 'Messages', from the "Image Moderator", advising that MY "Images" were NOT accepted.
That was ODD ...
That in itself is EXTREMELY "Interesting" ...
Especially; as, I had NOT even submitted ANY such "Images" ...
[ And, in those posts; and, they were NOT my posts ... ]
So far ...
In some x4 cases, I had only accessed, OTHER Users/Patrons, posts to 'look' at ...
Here is one such example ( Today )

As such ...
Something NEEDS to be done about "Image Moderation".
I know, that "Image Moderation", in the "Community.FamilySearch" Forum, is ALMOST 'Out of Control' ...
And, it sounds like, "Image Moderation", in "Family Tree", of 'FamilySearch', is ALMOST 'Out of Control' ...
I hereby humbly request that you PLEASE, investigate; and, CORRECT, the parameters, of the FIRST Pass, "Computer" DRIVEN, "Image Moderation", in 'FamilySearch'.
Humbly submitted for your immediate, information; attention; and, consideration.
'Thank You' in advance.
Your co-operation, would be greatly appreciated.
