I heard from both of them this morning, Sally can't get on at all and I think Sharon posted once and then got this message:

This is an Acquia Hosting web server. You are accessing the server via a domain name it is not configured to host. If you are an Acquia Hosting customer and expected to see your site here, you may need to add the domain name to your site. Contact Acquia Support for assistance.

Are they blackballing us one by one. . . .?

Edited to say--I'm just kidding folks! Don't lose your senses of humor please.

I had this a couple of hours ago, but now I can (obviously!) get back in again. Just another one of the trials we have to go through.

Heather, I'm going to send you my email address in the MY INBOX thingy. I'd hate to "lose" you.

Marcia, if you're agreeable, I'd love to have your e-mail too. I have a sinking feeling that we're all going to have to reconvene somewhere else soon as this forum dies an unnatural death. You are one of my favorite CTers and I'd hate to lose contact with you!

The same thing happened to me this morning. I tried to use my old bookmark for Cooks Talk, which didn't work.

See, THIS is the kind of thing to which I object.

And before I get accused of being an a$$-kisser, I don't love the new format either and am hoping there can be significant improvements and changes made to it.

But it's a little ridiculous, IMO, to accuse Taunton of singling out and/or blackballing users, or insinuate that they are purposely trying to run off users by changing to a new forum platform that everyone would hate. It would make no sense for them to do so, from either a customer service or a business perspective.

Frustration about a clumsy platform is one thing, and complaining about it is certainly valid, but vilifying Taunton is not going to help the situation.

That would put me over the edge. Seriously.

They both need to be sure cookies are enabled--or at least you did on the old site. I'll email Sharon. They should email Taunton.

Gretchen, Cylexa has e-mailed them and I think will even be talking to Robyn by phone to figure things out.

I tried to make a comment (post #67981, reply #19 of 21)

I tried to make a comment last night...it was not recorded. I tried a second time and thought it was recorded. I do not see it or any reply today. And of course, due to the new forum, I cannot even find the thread I was making a comment in. I do not understand even one thing in this new set-up. Could there be a thread that includes directions for following this forum? I am going to click on "Save" now and hope this message goes through. I am beyond frustrated!

Robyn, Because of the new thread organization, I have no idea to what comment you are responding. What are you aware of and are working on? To whom are you addressing this comment? Sorry, but I just don't get it. The indentations are too subtle and in long threads, they are impossible to follow.

Heather may have been being sarcastic, but hers is certainly not the only comment along a similar vein that's been posted over the last few days, or really any time there's been even the slightest tweak to the site, the forums, or the magazine.

There is NO business case for purposely alienating existing users and subscribers. None. And we have no reason to believe that's what they're doing.
