Hello All! BigGrin

I was looking at the member list and it's nice to see such diversity :shock: in the location of all the members.

I hope a lot more people will register and populate this forum! I know that there is always more posts right after the release of a new beta version, so I guess we'll have to wait a bit more! :wink:

Honyk, I hope you will update your profile with your location!

maru-san.. are you the old Niels from the old discussion board? And what does maru-san mean? I just learned here and here that -san is the japanese suffix to show respect to someone of the same age and/or unknown.

Take care all,
Barbusci

Well, I am glad you mentioned about a feature like this. The original goal of the GenoClub was to allow users to find each others on the web.

Background History
Back in 2000, I created a form to Join the GenoClub where users would enter their name, country, language and home page. I would manually edit the HTML pages to include their info to the proper categories such as country and language. Visitors could then surf to find users from a nearby city or someone speaking their native language. At that time, I did not knew ASP, so editing a few pages each time a new users was joining the club was a big burden. Worse, users were unable to update their profile. A few months later came GenoPro Gold. Yes, the GenoClub was created before selling GenoPro Gold. At this point, I discovered ASP. By selling GenoPro Gold, the server had an additional group of potential users wishing to join the GenoClub. With the old forum, it was impossible to merge both databases, so users wishing to post to the old forum had to create themselves a new account, and asking the user again for their information to join the GenoClub was a no-no.

Today
The underlying database of this forum was designed to store data about user location, country, state/province and spoken language. The pages will be written in ASP.NET and will be generated dynamically. Users purchasing GenoPro Gold will have the option to 'join the GenoClub' to have their name and home page appear in one of the dynamic pages such as country, state/province and language. For instance, a page containing all users grouped by language will be generated from this database. If you want to find all users speaking French in your state/province, it will be a snap. The language field will also be used by GenoPro to determine which languages are most popular for translation. Above all, every users will have the option to unsubscribe and re-subscribe to the 'GenoClub'.

What remains to be done is to modify the existing ASP code to ASP.NET to use the new SQL database, and then write the code to generate the dynamic pages.

Yes I am the one whom you call the old Niels. The suffix "san" is used to address a person in Japan, instead of Mr. or Mrs. in the western world or Herr or Frau in Germany. A teacher is addressed as "sensei", a professor "hakasei".
The character as displayed is called "maru" and is part of my family name "martensen", which in japanese is made of three(3) characters in order to match the phonetic pronouncation properly, like shown on my homepage. Since I have a permanent residentship for Japan I registered my name with those 3 characters and can use them in connection with a stamp (hanko) instead of signatures.

I was helping out with testing the proper display of japanese characters in the Beta Version.
Any more questions? Do not hesitate to ask!
Niels

Hi,
I am Steve, live in the Netherlands, but originally born in Indonesia. My ancestor was coming from China, Fukkien area.
It was about 20 years ago when one of my relatives gaves me a simple familytree book (typed!). And just like any other young people, I wasn't care about family. At that time I was busy to get a life.

20 years later another relative from Indonesia wrote me an email asking about our family, since someone told him that I had the familytree book. And so since that time I use almost all my time to search unknown family member. I asked every uncle and aunt how they are related with our family. With that relative from Indonesia we have collected more than 7000 individuals spread all over the world. We have our own mailing list, we have our own website with forum like this just to keep us informed each other.

Steve
