In talking to a couple other surname project admins at the FTDNA
conference in Houston about admins who do not adequately manage their
projects, the idea of speaking directly to Max Blankfield, the senior
Marketing guy for FTDNA, came up.
I thought that was a very good idea, so I did that. Max said that if
anyone sends him information about an admin that is operating in such
a situation, he will deal with it himself. He also gave me his card
with his email address.
So, if you know of a surname project with an essentially "absent"
admin - send the information to Max Blankfield:
I did tell him that I was going to post this on the email forums, so
he is expecting to get a few such notices.
We will see if notifying Max makes a difference, but maybe . . .
Surname project admins do a lot of personal marketing for FTDNA, even
if we are volunteers. Max may be one of the few people at FTDNA that
