  • YouTube Embeds No Longer Working?  Oct 18 2015, 10:49:50 AM

    We just switched to a new YouTube Embedder which should work/work better along with a few other updates for certain browsers that were having problems. Let me know! 

  • Anyone having trouble posting from Chrome?  Aug 11 2015, 12:26:26 PM

    You can if you type the title, highlight the text and click the link icon and then copy/paste a link in.

    and PMs have been switched over to the same Chrome happier (so far) editor.

    Bumped the font size up! Will look at PMs next. 

  • Anyone having trouble posting from Chrome?  Aug 11 2015, 08:25:02 AM

    Thanks for those that alerted me to this thread... We just switched to a different editor this morning that (from testing so far) doesn't seem to have the same periodic issue with Chrome. It should also be a bit better with auto-embedding YouTube videos, and in auto-linking copy/pasted links (without having to enter a space after them). 

    Let me know!

    A good idea is a good idea! Speaking of, we just added a click to see Off-Topic posts on the profile page, which should now be phone friendly as well. sealed

    Happy 2015!

    Raising a toast from here as well! Here's to the NEXT 10 years!

    That's an odd one... Try clearing your web browser's cache and cookies, it sounds to me like perhaps something only partially loaded at some point and is stuck in there.

  • New Report Abusive PM Function  Nov 23 2013, 12:48:59 PM
    "Jane, our messages are still private. You can't forward private messages to other members."

  • New Report Abusive PM Function  Nov 23 2013, 12:33:42 PM
    Just FYI, there's a new link at the bottom of private messages, right next to 'block user' entitled 'report PM as abusive', which will send the contents straight to us.

    We'd received a complaint last night, and being that all PMs are encrypted, I realized that we'd needed a way to allow a 'forward' to verify abuse, so this now packs and sends the contents straight to me to then jump on the problem.

    If you feel someone is posting in a thread, or creating a thread for the singular purpose of trolling and stirring up trouble, report it to the moderators. We deal with those almost daily including spammers, aspiring songwriters, etc. and we deal with that the same as we deal with personal attacks.
  • Mods - What Does Elaine/Nomdeplume/Suestorm Have On You?  Nov 19 2013, 04:48:46 PM
    Report Abuse goes to whatever mod is on at the time, but all of us being human and fallible, if you think we're missing something horrific, my virtual door is always open. Hearing from multiple board members is what resulted in me bringing back the 'Ignore User' function which I didn't know was being missed, and if there's something else I'm missing, hit me with links.

    I'm nothing if not unhelpful Liza, but if you think another poster is doing something that we haven't caught, you know how to let us know.
  • Mods - What Does Elaine/Nomdeplume/Suestorm Have On You?  Nov 19 2013, 04:38:39 PM
    As always, any questions you have about why something has been removed, you're more than welcome to write me, or my mod team about, but attacking someone, and chasing their every post violates our rules. And on the flip side, if someone is doing something that you think we missed, let me and/or my team know.

    Traffic and page views have nothing to do with our moderation.
  • Mods - What Does Elaine/Nomdeplume/Suestorm Have On You?  Nov 19 2013, 04:16:26 PM
    Personal attacks are deleted of all sorts, as they're reported or as we catch them. As our rules state "Please post with courtesy (and common sense) - no use of profanity, obscenities, or name calling. No personal attacks - we all have different opinions - disagree with the view, not with the person."
