Totally fed up...

I don't know why I even bother.  I go to EAS, I see a new thread at the top...I sign in and it's gone.  I scroll through and sometimes find it...sometimes I can't.  If I do, I find it somewhere in 2012.

Then I post in to a newbie just now and I get the profanity filter and it doesn't even give the word that is profane...and there is no profane word.  So, I take a chance that the word luust might be the cause and so I use two u's and it's good to go.

I don't know what's more absurd...ivillage...or me for still trying to lend support.  And G-d forbid we try to steer someone elsewhere so they can get support.  I mean, no one goes to EAS anymore because they became frustrated and so just gave up.  EAS was once one of the busiest Boards on ivillage.  

What kind of organization says 'we can't help you and we won't tell you where you CAN go for help 'til we can get ourselves up and running again"?

Bah

Hi Theresa

That was one of the first problems that presented itself immediately after the switchover.  I kept waiting and waiting for it to correct itself, but after about two months, I ended up creating a new email account to attach a new ivillage account, and things were okay after that.

I know some were also experiencing that problem and one in particular was too stubborn (she'll know I'm speaking of her...lol) to lose her name she had used for years...I don't know if the problem was ever resolved.  But my way worked...I just tweeked my name a bit so people knew it was me :)

Good luck.

Clarity

Hi Erin,

I am trying to edit my signature, and when I hit "save" it tells me wingertheresa@aol.com is already taken.  Of course it's been taken, that's me.  What do I do now?

I would grab a screen shot if I knew how....perhaps you can forward to me Screen Shots for Dummies :)

I got lucky this time...figuring out that perhaps lust was considered a dirty word. Maybe that began when Jimmy Carter said that he lusted :)  

I'm trying lusted here to see what will happen.  If you see it with two u's, it means that it was still not acceptable.

edited (for the 2nd time because the first one didn't take)...apparently lusted is no longer considered profane :)

Took me several attempts to log in...kept getting access denied, you are not authorized or a fatal error as occurred.  

But, I persevered and it was worth it just for your hug, ((Nightangel)).  Thank you :)

Hi Clarity -

I'm sorry you're aggravated. I'm not familiar with your situation, however if you are steering members to another forum, it is against the Terms of Service to do so in posts and/or PMs.

Can you grab a screen shot of the profanity issue when it happens? If you could include the error message along with the post content that would be great. (You can PM it to me if you want.)

Thanks,

Erin
