Hi, everyone!

First, I want to say THANK YOU for all of your posts -- some issues we know about and are already working on; but you also brought some new bugs to our attention too. It's a big help to us to see these, and it helps me prioritize what needs to happen immediately, and what can come after that.

After we went live yesterday, thanks to you, the Community Leaders, and the Moderators, I was able to give a long list (Wink) of To-Dos to the tech team.

I'll use this thread to start reporting what our tech team is working on. I'll post a follow-up as things get fixed. 

Right now, this is what is being worked on:

1. Fixing Log In in IE

2. Re-importing missing user accounts (those "Visitor (Not Verified)" accounts), which is also related to the Error pages we get when we click on a thread.(What happens is this: when we click on a thread, the system needs to load all the info about that thread – the content, the settings, and the users attached to it. As the system searches frantically for the all the users participating in that thread, when it hits a missing user account, the page load fails.)

3. Re-importing missing message boards: All of the June 2012 Playgroup; boards in the Current Debates, After School Activities, 2008 Playgroup Friends, 2009 Playgroup friends, and Wedding & Honeymoon Planning topics; and the Nurtured Heart Approach board in the Spirited & High Needs topic. I can't thank our members in these boards enough for your patience!

Additionally, you should start seeing some Avatars reappearing, as well as some Signatures.

Also, you'll notice that header copy is missing from the boards -- that will be reloaded in the next 24-36 hours.

As for the rest of the list, I'm sitting down with the project manager this afternoon to prioritize the next tasks for the team. I'll make features that are not working or missing the highest priority. 

I'll talk to you soon!

...keep going!

<p>&gt;&gt;I might have a temporary workaround for that "email already used" error. It worked for a few of us, but not everyone. Maybe it will work for you! Seems it has to do with the password field. If you want to change anything in Edit My Preferences, go to the Account tab &gt; delete the password from the password field &gt; go change the thing you need to change (in your case, try uploading an avatar) &gt; click the Save button at the bottom. When you go back to your Account tab, your pwd is still there, but your changes have actually been saved. I have a ticket in for the team to fix this, but until then...&lt;&lt;</p><p>Jessica - not sure if it means anything or makes a difference, but when I go to the account tab, there is no password showing to delete.  So that work-around does not work for me, it seems since I am still getting that error message when I try to edit any of my settings.</p><p>Kim</p>

This is the same for me as well!

I have a BIG issue with the advertisment (top banner and right side column)

I was on my teen's son computer and the ads were all pornographic and explicit.  I am not happy about that.

Hi,

Hmm. I was probably replying to my own post. I see posts by others that have "cdjessica" in the "reply to" field...

Let me ask the guys to take a look, to see if they can spot any errors. It does look like something's off. I'll ask them what the logic is for deciding what goes in that field. They probably won't get to it today though; they really need to get the missing boards / error pages - visitor accounts / replies issues resolved asap. 

But yeah, it's an annoying one. Undecided

Thanks for the examples!

...keep going!

<p>OK this is weird! I am only seeing the in reply to: problem in this thread - all the other threads it is working.</p>

Ha! That is weird! Still sounds like the guys should take a glance, just to be sure...

Plus, now I'm curious, you know?

...keep going!

Yep, we have it. I was just going to ask you for the one you were using to make sure it wasn't different from ours somehow and so we could specifically test it. I actually did the same thing- updated all my bookmarks - but then I needed an old URL for something. Luckily, I still had old bookmarks in a different browser. Smile

I do not like now how the B is capitalized in my name. I've had it lower case for years. Also, this board is way too blinding white and there are no markers or other colors to differentiate between posts, etc.

I can't say, tthere is no way I was clicking on that.  I'm guessing it's some "get laid tonite" dating site, or a porn site.  I've seen this type of ad before, but not so explicit.  This had full frontal nudity with a flashing "fcuk me here" with an arrow pointing you know where.

My question was more if ivillage had standards as to what type of businesses they accept as advertisment on their site and boards..
