Be fair, Genes have not claimed that it is all sorted, just that the site is more stable than it was. In the Announcements board Phil says that they are making changes today to improve the situation.


FannyByGaslight Report 25 Oct 2011 14:25

So why can I not get on Fred and have had terrible trouble to get on here and that only in the last couple of hours...
Utter rubbish that its sorted for everyone I say... :-P

"Unfortunately, not all members read all the boards, ..."
- judging by the number of views for threads, it would seem that most members do not look at any of the boards ;-)


SylviaInCanada Report 25 Oct 2011 00:04

so IGP was really sharing around that pen then!

someone else had it in the middle of the night! ;-)



Island Report 24 Oct 2011 23:05


Jax you had IGPs pen when I looked this morning :-0


jax Report 24 Oct 2011 23:01

I have not seen myself as anyone else....but I did see a thread where every post had my avatar, had to look again as I could'nt remember being so busy on that thread



Island Report 24 Oct 2011 22:56

IGP was the little girl with long plaits (Jax?) when I looked in this morning LOL


SylviaInCanada Report 24 Oct 2011 19:50

The canging aroud of avatars happened on a number of threads in the middle of the night

I saw several occasions where IGP had a sunflower and the member who usually has the sunflower had the green pen!

Ja...x and I changed avatars several times.

There was some sort of a system to the changing .......... it was move down one posting, but only in pairs!



Island Report 24 Oct 2011 09:20

I'm just testing to see whose avatar I get.

In case no one saw it, avatars were alloted to the wrong posters on this thread.

Tried to see page two and got error message three times.

Amateur night out :-| :-|

My apologies Sylvia for not elaborating on the discovery. I did look at the 50 cents thingy, just in case, you understand! I thought it might contain a nice surprise.

Comes under the gets what you pays for, don't it.


SylviaInCanada Report 22 Oct 2011 21:18


I really do fail to see why you are posting that url on every thread that you can

Most of us actually saw it last night, and do not need reminding that it was posted several hours AFTER the problems had started!

Nor do we need reminding that announcements were posted on the Announcement board, when we were completely unable to open either the board or the announcement to see what was posted.

I did note that complaints had been made on the GR wall on FB for a full 5 hours before there was any response from GR

.............. and that response was basically "Oh, there are problems? we didn't know!. Please let us know what problems you are having, in full detail"

asinine response when all they had to do was look at 3 "threads'"and about 50 comments! ALL of which detailed what was happening.

There have been many "doh" moments with GR in all the years I have been a member .................... last night must receive the Gold Medal for inability to understand and respond in due fashion.

The problem should NEVER have gone on for so long.



SylviaInCanada Report 22 Oct 2011 21:11

however, AS ............... you do not really have 50 credits

as someone pointed out some weeks ago

that just means that IF you pay a certain amount of money, then you will get 50 credits

This was discovered after said person tried to use the 50 credits she thought she had to look at some records, only to be told to buy credits first.

want to throw another hissy fit???



AuntySherlock Report 22 Oct 2011 10:57

I have reset my cookies as advised by GR.

Only took me twenty minutes to log back in again.

I have never before noticed the 50 credits on the My Account bar.


AuntySherlock Report 22 Oct 2011 10:00

I WAS NOT ASLEEP!!! Whoops! Is it catching.

I was not asleep I was tending to two scratching canines.

OK! I'll admit it. I might have nodded off during Cynthia's hissy fit. Plenty of evidence remaining, of the hissy fit ie, not my sleeping.

Wanna practice holding collective breaths and turning blue.

I have had to log in three times in order to type this message. I can look at the thread, but I can not type on it. I was not allowed in under my normal log in.

Phew! That's Oz for s***! Almost forgot to copy before I submitted. Isn't that a lovely pink colour on the error message. Were you aware pink does not exist. It is a minus green colour. Google it and find out.

Will try again to post.

If you read all of the boards IGP most of the people you have been giving this link to are the ones who help on yes they do read all of them


InspectorGreenPen Report 22 Oct 2011 07:09

Unfortunately, not all members read all the boards, so just trying to be helpful.


jax Report 22 Oct 2011 07:05

Ummmm after being logged onto this site for the last 18 hours and tend to visit ALL boards plus facebook yes I have seen it and maybe the others have too


InspectorGreenPen Report 22 Oct 2011 06:56

In case you haven't seen it.....!
