RE: Testing

Whoo-Hoo!

You were not alone.

Littleone_fb (Fran) is also having problems similar to yours.

I sent her a copy of what Tamara sent us, along with the email addy. She was able to email her...don't know why you weren't.

Anyway, hope you are all fixed up...but don't hesitate to holler if you have further problems and don't have any other lifeline.

RE: Testing

Here goes my try at 2:30 am on Tuesday. Just got a chance to get on now, hubby has been doing the taxes.

If this works will try to post on a couple of other forums.

Sue, if it doesn't work, you will be hearing from me for more help.

RE: Testing

Fran, Since I have not heard from you (yet) does that mean you are up and still running?

I hope bakemom is also and checks in with us. I see she has not chosen to have the follow-up replies emailed to her.

I can post, but I haven't cleared my cache yet. I'm going to call home and see if my son will do it for me. i was too frazzled last night after work.

RE: Testing

Sue, I'm up and running today. cleared the cache and all GW cookies before I tried anything today.

Received and e-mail from Tamara late this afternoon. She was checking in to be sure all was ok and believes that the spam filter was turned off.

Bakemom, check in with us and tell us you are OK too.

RE: Testing

My son is clearing my cookies for me b/c I am a computer idiot. I will let you know when he does that. I can post of course and posted a veggie offer on the exchange.

RE: Testing

Yeah, bakemom is back.

Trust me, the kids know more about computers and what to do than the rest of us will ever know.

My son is off to another Blue Jackets game and didn't get a chance to work on my computer. If they win, I believe they are headed to the playoffs. Nevertheless, I got a veggie offering posted and filled today, so all is well.

RE: Testing

hhhmmm...Karyn1 emailed me this AM with the same exact problem as Fran and bakemom had...being unable to post (take you to the main GW page I think) and not able to use the Contact Us link at the bottom of the page.

After emptying her cache (clearing history) she is back up and running.

So...in the event anyone experiences the same problem, try clearing your cache. If that does not work, or you are unsure how to clear your cache, drop me an email. I will be in and out today though.

Sue...resident busy body

RE: Testing

I was just about to post but Sue beat me to it. Thank goodness she was able to tell me what to do to resolve the problem. I was experiencing GW posting withdrawl. LOL

RE: Testing

I was experiencing GW posting withdrawl.
It is an awful feeling, isn't it? I get it when I am on vacation and away from a computer. Occasionally I will 'pay to play' a short bit at an internet cafe, or a library. It's usually pretty costly though, so I limit what I spend and just figure it as a little entertainment expense while vacationing.

RE: Testing

That's why you need a laptop with a card. lol My teenage son and I were both going away at the same time and were arguing over who got to take the laptop with them. Guess who won that one? :)

Hi Karyn,

Glad you are back up and running.

Trudi was off. I emailed T and it's hopefully all better.

RE: Got locked out last night...sigh

I am now among the ranks of getting locked out as I was locked out late last night after attempting to email a member via the GW form....which btw I hate using unless I have to as in they have their setting to show addy to No One.

Anywho...I emailed (gw)tamara, late last night and now seem to be fine. I explained it was right after trying to send an email...so hopefully that may help at narrowing down the problem.

Karyn, Fran, bakemom, Trudi, if it should happen again to you, please try and notice if it was after you used the GW email form....and include that in your email to (gw)tamara.

Sue...happy to be fixed. I was afraid I might go into GW withdrawal, and that is an very ugly sight I've been told...lol

RE: Testing

Oh, Oh, Oh.

Sue, got blocked? Welcome to the club Sue, not a club you want to be a member of.

Interesting question though, did it happen to us after sending e-mail through GW form.

Well I can answer that one easily. It has happened when sending an e-mail to tamara using the "contact us" form.

I've had it happen when sending an e-mail to a member and I've had it happen when attempting to just post on a thread.

I've had it happen with any combination of the above too.

"GW withdrawal is a horrible experience. Hubby says I'm "not fit to live with".

Got to be a way to fix this problem.

RE: Testing

Well, I got blocked a second time...really not sure what I did...and now am back up fine again.

Heading out to play, rather than maybe get in trouble here again right away.

"GW withdrawal is a horrible experience. Hubby says I'm "not fit to live with".
Why do I not find that hard to believe?

Got your email Fran...and Thanks!

Sue

RE: Testing

My pleasure Sue. You've helped us out, nice to have a turn to help you,

BUT, why does this keep happening?

RE: Testing

It is my understanding that there is a problem with the Spam filter. It seems to dislike some of us more than others, thought we are not spammers. Anywho, they are attempting to get it fixed, and I kind of think of it like some mechanics do when they are trying to correct a problem with a car. A mechanic will replace parts until the problem is solved.
The tech team replaces code (or something like that) until they find the problem has been corrected. Make sense?
My guess is that there is no way of testing it other than finding out from us if it is still causing roblems....using the real world forums.
Just my 'guesses' now ya know from what I have deduced via emails ...

Back to mowing, eating weeds, preening, spraying, etc.
