Can you please ask CDJess to come by this board and post an update of some sort? There must be something, however minor, to report since her last post 6 weeks ago.

I'm sorry you think I was dodging the question. Jess is here and it's my understanding that she'll be posting today or tomorrow.

The sig I have set always does show on the Help board.   When I post on Quick and Easy Recipes, or In the Kitchen, I never know what I am going to get.   In one thread I can have 4 different sigs showing.  But that issue I can just laugh about and think  that this is the worst computer program ever written.  

Why my current sig always shows on this board and won't work correct elsewhere.  

I know it has been requested before, and that request was ignored or denied, but a list of known issues and what is actually being worked on would be great.

I do love how you managed to not address whether Jessica is on vacation or reassigned or ......?  You guys are masters of the dodge! Innocent And my gag order comment was not about new developments you weren't allowed to share. I am sure if they ever do bother to fix something they will trumpet it from the rooftops. I am just not holding my breath for them to ever fix anything. Nor do I expect them to actually admit that they aren't actively working on anything directly related to the boards, or that this whole thing has been a class-A fuster cluck from the minute they posted the "you shouldn't even notice much difference" and "having in-house control will make the boards better" announcement.  I am trying to be more Zen about this whole mess, but am having a hard time, since it seems to be getting worse - the log in problems the last couple days have been beyond frustrating.

I am sure my lilac sig is showing for the moment - I deleted and re-set it in my preferences again yesterday -  but I have no doubt my Valentine sig will reappear. Much like Tracy's post from today is showing her Valentine's sig, when I am pretty sure her baseball one is the most current one. At least that is the one that showed up on some of her posts on the Quick and Easy Recipes board today.

I can see your spring signature, Cara.  All of my signatures are Photobucket links.

Hi Cara -

No gag order. :) There just isn't any boards update to share. They are still working on things behind the scenes. Unfortunately there are no time frames, as much as you hate to hear it and I hate to say it.

As for the signatures, I'm not sure why some of them don't stick. Some have older ones due to an issue with their email address. The only way to correct it is to change the email address, either temporarily or permanently. For those who are able to and yet the signature mysteriously switches, my best guess would be that it's related to the server/cache issues. I do currently see your spring one.

At first I was assuming that she had been fired, but her profile is still there (not deleted like the CMs who have resigned) - she just hasn't posted in 54 days. So either she is on a really long vacation, or she (or her superiors) have decided it best she not interact with us and the CMs have a gag order preventing them from giving us any relevent information.

Just a theory.

On a separate note, I noticed Chris is still rocking her Christmas sig (which is beautiful, by the way), and I think my Valentine's sig is currently showing up, despite the fact that I have put up both St. Patrick's Day and a random spring one since then. Most of our board members can't get theirs to stick, either. How is it that the CMs signatures appear to be current? Let us in on the secret! Smile My Valentines one I uploaded from my desktop, the other is linked from Photobucket. Any suggestions?

Hi Kim,

That's actually something I'm working on, I just haven't gotten to every board yet (they're manually done).

Thanks,
Erin :)

If nothing else, can we at least get the board headers (what the board is about) restored on some of our more "sensitive" boards?

I see that the one for this board is in place, so I am hoping that means that it is possible, but just hasn't been done yet for all of the boards.

But I am seeing a lot of confused posters, who are maybe posting on boards that are not suited to them, so it would be a real help to have them back.

Kim
