The background pages of the project are hidden under "About."

Maybe half the problem could be solved if I as a project member could specify a default view page so I would not see the Activity Feed unless I click to view it.

Why do I feel like this website is getting dumbed down ?
Do you think you might feel that way because it is?

Question MyGroup Coupons

Have MyGroup coupons come to an end? I never saw an announcement saying how long they would be issued. I haven't seen an announcement saying they have ended. I haven't seen any codes posted today.

Lost myGroups interactive links

Yesterday I lost all the interactive links (pictures, questions etc)on the Activity Feed in myGroups.

Also the coupon was not updated and I cannot reply to any messages.

Any update on these issues?

Tim

Question Just got coupon

Jim,

I just got a new coupon at about 1315 PDT.

Now when I use the $20 coupon on a SNP order it gives the following:

"This coupon requires a greater amount to be purchased"

Well my total order is the SNP order so it should work and I have not seen a base order amount requirement listed?

I am getting new post in myGroups now but I still do not have any of the links to add a post etc., from my GAP page.

Tim

Smile At Last

Tim,

I just received a reply to my request to FTDNA. They found there had been a problem and it has just been fixed.

I ordered L21 - $39 last week and used a $20 coupon and it worked. Sounds like I was lucky or you found another bug.

Tim,

I was just told that the order must be at least $40 for any coupon. This information will be added for tomorrow. I guess I was lucky.

Thanks Jim,

So by the $40 base price requirement we cannot use the $10 and $20 coupons for single SNP testing Right now my donations are toward a single SNP that we need tested and not multiples.

discount coupon codes

If it's true that they only work for orders totaling $40 or more they should certainly make that abundantly clear.

Advice to anyone at FTDNA who might see this:
Don't come up with gimmicks like this if you're going to have hidden restrictions.
