    I’ve been having issues logging in since the site work up. This is the first time I have been able to get into the forums. I’m not sure If I will be able to get in again either for a while if it continues. I was stuck in login loops…

    My problem is finding content that I recall being here. But still looking at the date of last posts which run from days to years does indicate a lack of interest unless using the forum is really harder than I encountered.

    The forum didn’t used to be hard to navigate at all – then things went wonky and TPTB decided it wasn’t worth bothering with for months. Then they decided to “fix” it and now we have a forum that, for all intents and purposes, is unusable.

    I like the feature where you can get replies sent to your email. It helps me keep in touch with forums I like.

    Testing post differences between reply and just post at end.
    Will this one need moderation like the reply to one did?

    Edit: After submitting this one —

    The answer is no. Not sure why a reply to message needs moderation but just adding a message does not.

    @shadowwalker

    I think they tried to do a quick and dirty cheap fix for the spam problem.

    That said I do miss the search ability although I guess I could google with site:writersdigest.com/forums appended to find old posts.

    Maybe email the site if there is a glitch?

    That’s part of the problem – there is no way that is readily available to let anyone know when there’s a problem. I can get hold of Rob via his forum, but there’s nothing here to report anything other than posting in the forum and hoping someone sees it at some point.

      @shadowwalker, I just emailed them and they fixed the problem. I can give you the address.

      Having the address would be great – I’m sincerely amazed that any problem got fixed quickly. Most (like almost all) problems that have been reported on the forum itself get dismissed with a “we’ll be working on that later…” and then – crickets.

    Yeah, they’ve really done a great job of shutting this place down, while nominally keeping it open.

    I’m a bit confused – the submissions area took care of a forum problem?

    That’s how I got in touch with my problems. I took a guess of who can help and I guessed right. Give it a shot. It might work for you.
