It's been five whole minutes and I have yet to receive the activation instructions.
...for the new site, that is.
Nope, sorry. You have no Need to Know.
Err, why? When I see a note saying just "SITE ABANDONED Please visit the new site here." with no explanation, I start to suspect a site-hijack...
Thanks for keeping us on a need to know basis about this "improvement", Tim.
Will we now have to update our spam defences ?
is it a joke ?
should i be clicking the link ?
wha ...? huh ???
Is anyone else having trouble registering as a commenter on the new site?
I keep getting an error message: "Invalid page request".
EvilPundit: well, the site (as of this minute) already has over 200 members registered so maybe it's a problem with your connection or something? I've been doing some site tinkering too, but mostly to do with the stylesheet, nothing to do with permissions or anything that would shut down the site momentarily. Keep trying -- if you are still having trouble email me at admin-at-spleenville.com and I'll register you myself.
You're not the only one Evil.
But this http is seared, SEARED into my memory ....
My FIRST and LAST post to this site ... I saw you mug and love interest in the Sunday Telegraph yesterday ... is it a personalised numberplate on the red MX-5 ... is it P(retty) R(ed) P? 069 ... the 3 digits are self explanatory ... what's the P stand for?
You also got a plug for this Blog in the 2/3 page article, but it mentions this URL ... great timing Tim ... you better get another article written and published about you ... with your new URL featured ... I'm going there now ...
Andrea, I've emailed you at your gmail address, with a suggestion about the Opera browser problem on the new site.
I'll try to register again. I don't know what'sgoing on, as I'm pretty sure I'm doing things right and my connection is usually reliable.
I've tried registering again, in both Firefox and IE, but to no avail. I still get the same error message.
I think the error message is coming from the server. I'm pretty sure my ISP doesn't use a proxy for my connection.
Sorry to give you another headache.
I've gone and registered you. Have fun! (See your email for details.)
I hit the link and there's nothing but a banner, some ads, a poll and a big white space. This is beginning to look like someone discovered the Internet equivalent of the velvet rope.
I'll see your ditto and raise you another ditto.
I think there might be a few of us having the same issue as Evil Pundit when trying to register:"Invalid page request"
My normal browser is Opera, though it also happens on IE.
The site is there. Scoll down. They are having a serious formatting issue.
I'm getting the invalid page request also. Can't log in, but went to "members" list, and my name is there, but don't seem to be registered.
Curiouser and curiouser. Maybe Andrea is winnowing out the chaff.
"Invalid page request" using both IE and Mozilla. No other problems accessing any other web site or any internet game.
I'll try again in a few days, but if you're convinced that the problem is on "our end", I guess I'll be just reading from now on...
Guys, anyone having registering problems please email me at admin-at-spleenville.com. Use a regular email address that you check often. I'll register you myself and email you the code.
You are not Andrea Harris, either.
see you at the new site...
p.s. g*d bl*ss d*n*ld r*msf*ld!!!
whats happening to all the wonderful archives at this site? are they staying here or moving?
---------------and the downside of us having to put our emails here, others are getting them and spamming the emails with jumk (unassociated with this site I am sure)
