Starting a new thread

Yet again frustrated today, and I don't mean to take it out on the CM's or anything, but this is absolutely ridiculous.  I am right there with Purple21 and Thatyank right now.  I have went round and round about 8 times this morning trying to start one thread on my 10-14 board.  It says I'm not signed in, it asks me to sign in, then it tells me the thread is not there to start a new discussion.  I will post the screen shot of it.  I am using Firefox because I can't get IE to work at all with the boards today.  I can reply just fine in my board, and I can start a new thread here in the help section, but not on my board and I am to the point where I am wondering what hte point of having these boards are.  Nothing can get done, nobody can get on and do anything, the few that are trying to stick it out.  And while I try not to complain a whole lot, it amazes me that the people who purchased this software or platform or whatever would even do it knowing they couldn't do basic things essential to message boards such as knowing when you have actually looked at a post, as someone else said in a post, they bought it knowing that they would have to build in that feature later on.  Seriously was whoever even decided on this changeover and bought the platform ever actually using the message boards to think half the stuff they'd have to "build in" were pretty darn essential in the first place??  I don't want to sound like a witch, but I'm sorry, how long has it been, almost 3 months and we can't even function on the message boards??  And you wonder why no one is on the boards, no one is coming back to the boards, and everyone is pissed off.

Hi Tracy,

Are you still having this issue?  I know that I ran into it earlier this morning and reported it right away.  However, it seems to have corrected itself.  I just tried to start a thread over on one of the Expecting Clubs and it worked for me.  Hopefully it was just a temporary thing that we won't see again but please let me know if you are still running into this.

I'm so sorry you and your community members are so frustrated.  Please know that I've passed all of your comments on.

Well, I did start a new thread on the board finally and it says I successful started a new thread, but it doesn't actually show up on the board even after I refresh several times, and the reply that I replied to, while you can see my reply that I did when you open the thread, when you look at the main page, it doesn't show anyone has replied to the thread.

Tracy,

Is it the Thankful Thursday thread?  I just visited your topic and I see it at the top.  I also see that you've replied to a couple of threads this morning. I'm wondering if it is just taking a few minutes for them to appear?

It took about 20 minutes for the new Thankful Thursday thread to appear, I sat and refreshed the board every few minutes for almost 20 minutes before it appeared. The same with my reply to the Thursday Chit Chat Thread.

Thanks for the information, Tracy. Sounds like we are experiencing a time delay between when a post is made and when it is showing on the main topic page.   I've passed this on.

I'm having a similar issue on Safari. I try to start a new thread --- and the top of the page and the right margin BOTH show me as logged in. But I get a sign-in or Join page instead. I sign in, and i get an error message - something about that service not being avaialbe (sorry --- I can't replicate it now). This happens over and over and over... But I can edit an old thread, or reply to it. Then, after I do that, the log-in issue seems to clear up.

This has NOT been happening to me on Firefox, where I usually post (Safari is the browser I use to post to boards other than the ones I cl...)

I'm on a Mac, by the way...

Thanks for all of the information, Carol.  The tech team is working on this as we speak (er, type!).  Hopefully it will be cleared up very soon!

Not just a FEW minutes!

I just edited a thread. The edit didn't appear. It was even gone when I went back to "re-edit". Second time around, it showed up but it says I haven't touched that thread in 22 hours!  No amount of refreshing helps here. For all I know, that edit is in there twice becasue it is so slow in loading.
