We survived week one!


Curious

So we all survived our first week on the new platform!   The transition has been smoother than I expected and the overall feedback has been quite positive.

We tested the software for about a month before we put it on the live site, but no matter how much you test it's different once you have hundreds or thousands of unique users, so we do have a few outstanding bugs that are being worked on.

* Some posts have gibberish characters in them

* Some profiles are not working properly (or at all)

* Moods is not working on Spectrum theme

* Down votes are wonky for some (most) people

* Search not bringing up all results

I'm sure I have missed something, but those are the ones that came to mind.   Profile and the search problems will be fixed once the posts with gibberish are fixed.  This was not a trivial fix and tech support is working on that issue for us.  We hope to have it resolved by the end of this week.   They are also working on the down votes issue.

We have 6 member blogs started, which I find exciting.   I can't wait to see what our members blog about.   There are already some great posts.  Cartman99 showed off her beautiful hardwood floor project and MarblesMom provides a recap of the nightly chats people have been having.  I've been able to pop into chat a couple times and it's been fun getting to know some members a bit better in real time.

I'd like to remind everyone that we have a wonderful FAQ system now (maintained by HernameisBuffy) and it's always up-to-date.  We also have a well maintained Tech Support forum, if you are having any problems.

This blog has been on hiatus since I was away from Nov, 2014-June 2015, but now that we are through the upgrade, I hope to bring it back to life.

On to week 2!

I haven't noticed anything down-voteable yet, so interested to see how that progresses!

ETA: By that I mean deserving of a down vote, not in regards to site functionality.

I'm still learning the new site, but as far as I have seen, it rocks. 

(Is it sad that the first time I got a notification of a "like" my mind went to Sally Field's Oscar acceptance speech? "They like me. They really like me!")

Yes, they are all created equal!  If we all took the time to analyse the motivation behind every like we wouldn't have time to post anything to be liked in the first place.  :)

not pity likes! I actually liked your comment and could relate, but as we are not supposed to post "I agree" without commentary, I just liked/upvoted your post :D

The more I read and 'like' other posts, the more I'm getting used to the whole system. And above, I was being a bit of a smart mouth. I'm kind of prone to that. :-) Maybe I'll have to look up HerNameIsBuffy's amazing post from a bit back with her mom's dating and sex advice. I'd give that one a million 'likes' if it were allowed!

Not having much luck, other than at staying logged in.  Can't get to my profile, though I can get to others.  I get a message of EX0 (or maybe EXO).  When I click the contact button, I get the form, but no cursor. 

Can't tell for sure, but my page seems short some "things" at the top.  Negotiating around is hap hazard to say the least. . . .

 

HELP!!!!

The profile problem is a known issue and the thread in tech support is being updated by @destiny31.  

Can you start a post in tech support for the issue where you think stuff is missing from the top including a screen shot and what device/OS you are on when you get the error?

it makes everything easier for both tech support and you if people post their issues in the correct forum so they can be addressed.  Posting problems in non-tech support threads doesn't guarantee that it will be seen or followed up because we can't read every post.  

Thanks - if you post the screen shot and info in tech support I'll take a look.

Can't start any threads, I don't think.  Kind of can't "see" enough to do so--so here we go: This is what my header looks like-->keeper.thumb.PNG.93de3ae8bb7233dcff96a5f

Under the above is an ad, then this thread.

what device/OS are you on?   Can you go to the bottom of the page and click the theme link - select spectrum or default and see if you have the same problem in those themes?  Thanks.

      Am I the only one who found it strange that when the ‘Bowers Girls’ are mentioned by Hayley Lina isn’t in the photos. I think Hayley mentioned Lina in relation to how her and Carver first interaction with Cass. I can understand if Lina didn’t want to be photographed but it does seem a little like she’s ignoring her by praising the others. IMG_0179.thumb.jpeg.2bd1581e92ea5b491ace4e7a73da8265.jpeg

      I agree. I also think it's weird she's deciding who the "Bower girls" are, but then I hate the gender politics around last names anyway.

      Was it known that Hannah was having a 2nd? I know social media is private, but it seems like stuff still comes out despite that.

      Wasn't she seen pregnant at Nurie's tea party? I am pretty sure she was seen somehow.

      Yet another trip. She’s just like Jill Rod in this way. She never wants to be home with her kids.

      Thank you for moving this. Kelly, like Karissa Collins, is one who I’ve resisted following, even though some of the Facebook groups talk about her endlessly. But the horrifying birth story, followed by the over-the-top fable accompanied by carefully composed pictures of Kelly looking spiritual (seriously, where does she find the time? She has a new baby and two small kids!), sucked me in. She is weird in a completely different flavor than others we follow.

      One of her posts has a link to the retreat. Among agenda items - “time with baby Theresa” and the ability to try on and purchase prairie dresses made by Kelly. Does she really have followers who will go for this, or is it just going to be her and her besties admiring each other? 

      She is selling time with her baby? What the hell?
