Whew, that was tough! Oh, no, it’s not even over.
Are the Forums closed, or something?
I posted something from my Mac and clicked on the Captcha — nothing. I got an error once and went back to the Forum — my post was gone — no way to fix the error, had to redo it. It seems like I then did the Captcha fine, but the post doesn’t show and there’s no indication that it went up. So I tried using my PC. Same thing! Whew, worst Forum posting experience yet! Now watch, I won’t be able to post this! If so, I’ll copy it now so I can email it…

Hey, that worked! Hmmm, I wonder why my main post didn’t. Rats, that took a lot of editing. I feel like trying it again — hate getting foiled…
Is typing h t t p not allowed maybe? I included 3 links. If so, the posting window would say so, right? Or, an error should say so.
OK, I tried again and removed my h t t p ‘s and it worked. I note that typing those doesn’t seem like “markup” to me. Only “<” marks are. It’s not even really HTML — it’s just text you can copy to make a link. It doesn’t have to be “hot”. Oh well… That SURE wasn’t clear to me! Maybe just say “no links”?

Hi Jeff – I’m sorry for all the hassle and am aware that there are some major issues in the forums, and FS user accounts in general.
It is not acceptable, and we have plans to get it straightened out. Unfortunately, with the Olympics rapidly approaching and the season in full swing, we are not going to be able to overhaul the system until spring.
If anyone has specific problems – creating a user account, logging in, posting, etc. Please post in the Support forum. If you can’t post, send an email directly to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to get you straightened out.
Thanks for your understanding and patience.

Hmm guess i
m lucky not had any problems with the forum. Cant get the word press stuff to work but other then that the site works great for me.
If you have problems posting it could be smart to copy the post before you hit the “post” button so that if it dissapers you got a backup.
