RE: Paging Debby_1

Hi Alana,

I emailed debby_1 and included the link to this thread.

I see she has no Member Page email link. It probably disappeared with the fairly recent GW problems, and she likely is not even aware of it.

I did not have her addy in my email address folder, so here is what I did.

I did a search to find a thread where she had made a post.
I saw she had posted in This Thread
I went to 'her' post and went over to the side where it says email this post.

I then 'tried' emailing her the post, and used her member name in the 'to' section, since I didn't have her addy. You are supposed to be able to use either the addy or the name.
Then I got a message that she was not getting email via the forms here at GW, but that she could be reached at blah blah@blah.com I then copied her email addy and posted it into my Hotmail and emailed her and included a link to this thread.

So, there you have it...another hint/tip from rbb.

Here is another hint/tip

I get a lot of emails from GW members and save all addresses. When I save them, I always save them as member name/'real' first name...ie your address in my email address book is under poisondartfrog/Alana, littleonebf/Fran, sassybutterfly_2008/Wendy, etc. When I go to email a member, I am always thinking 'member name' so if I start to type the member name into the TO box, it will then come up with the different suggestions. Example, if I am emailing debbiep, I start to type in debbie and it will bring up several debby-something GW names.

Make sense?

Since she was in 'the swap' I'm thinking that at some time she was in touch with you via email, thus you 'should' have her addy if it was saved...unless it was only saved on your computer, and then lost for some reason, or possibly you have it, but can't find it because it isn't saved with her member name. Anywho, after several computer crashes and losing lots of emails and addys on my computer, I now read and keep my emails and addys at the Hotmail site.

Thanks rbb. I will reference your excellent instructions next time.
I do save email and snailmail contact information but lost it all to tech issues shortly after I started the swap.
I am building redundancy into that information going forward as I don't relish starting from scratch again.

You're welcome.

I sure feel your pain at having lost all your contact info. I just hope mine never gets lost from Hotmail, but know that 'anything' is always a possibility.

Hope you hear from debby_1 soon and that she can get her addy set up without problems.
