We have upgrades. I wonder why they made this change. To post a message or to respond to a message, we need to add new information. I am curious to see what comes up once I submit this post.

I have been concerned about the information I receive from another GW site. I think that there are new entries all the time that look like spam to me, so maybe this will make things better.

Well, we do have a preview, so I am going to go ahead and submit the message.

Yes, I just noticed this when trying to post a follow-up on the forum. Kind of aggravating, I thought I wasn't logged in but I was.

I do not intend to provide my email address on the subject line so every spammer can get it. I got away with as little as "v@v.com" in the email address line.

What happened to My Page? Also it is irritating to have to type my name in for every response. I just included my email in a response and should not have done it. What kind of upgrade is this?


RE: upgrades

I agree 100%. I did sign up for the diet thing on iVilliage and boy did I get spammed. It was terrible.

Perhaps this is their effort to avoid this spamming I recieved. It would be nice for them to explain it to us. I just thought they had sold my E-Mail address, perhaps not, seems to be a good company.

It was nice to be able to correspond with cupshaped_roses and work out our wonderful meeting. I would hate to loose that, but I don't want to open my door to the world.

There are people out there even more nuts tham I am. Hard to believe, I know.

If it isn't broken, they shouldn't have 'fixed' it.
It does remember my new email addy! as well as the name when I put in the first letter.
And member page is still me.
But I really worry about those who harvest email addys. I see visions of Irish Lottery Winners and misplaced fortunes in third world countries.

They upgraded the hardware--probably they had to. There are still some problems (where's the rose gallery??) but it's working a little better now.

Haven't had to add my e-m address when I post or experienced some of things. We'll see when my turn comes.
