    Dealing with "Oops"

    My experience, which may work for you is that, when I get an "Oops"message, I can use my back arrow to retrieve the message I wanted to post. It comes back, I try again, and it works. AM

    The oopppppssssss for me is getting old and very annoying so much I tend to now just limit my viewing the stretcher and now my posting is heading that away as well very sad too see this happen but it's a waste of time posting 10 to 15 times to get one to make it...doesn't matter if I use the reply options or quick option now

    That used to work for me but then it stopped working for a long time, and I just stopped posting. But I decided to try again today when I saw a thread I really wanted to reply to, and my post went through! Surprise So I'll carry on posting until something happens and it won't let me again.

    Re: Dealing with "Oops"

     Whenever I write a post, I "copy" it so that when I get the oops, I can just paste it in.

    I agree that it's very frustrating and discouraging  

     

    This used to be the easiest forum I participate in for posting pictures, now even that is fouled up. Even he smileys feature now has some kind of block on it.  I think this is an old program (like windows 98) that has long since been left behind with no real hope of bringing it up to date. Several other forums use v-bulletin and it runs smoothly with high levels of anti-spam capacity.

    The only real solution would be to start a new forum, but I don't know how to do that. This all started to go downhill back about, what, 8, 10 months ago when we were under daily massive spam attacks.  

    The one thing that still makes it worthwhile to visit is hearing from the small core group and reading about their everyday lives.

     The time stamp on the posting is really bothering me.

     For those of you frustrated...and aren't we all..

    This community is indeed operating on old software. We have been waiting for the day new software would be available to us and for the last couple of weeks, the team at The Dollar Stretcher has been setting up on a new platform so a brand new Dollar Stretcher community will soon go live.

     We all look forward to the day when we can say good-bye to the issues we have and get back to sharing ideas, tips, recipes and more without troubles.

     What does it take to start a new forum?

    For a small group, it's not as big an undertaking to get set up with a service or to place cheap software up on server space.  For a professional community, it takes money and some programming to get software up and going.

     The forums are owned by and operate for The Dollar Stretcher. It began as a community for the readers and contributers of the Dollar Stretcher site. Now, we have blogs and are interactive with the Dollar Stretcher Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and more. It takes several people to manage all this and be sure content continues to expand in accordance with The Dollar Stretcher site.

    This is a little more work and money than privately owned and run communities.

    Re: Dealing with "Oops"

    This is great news. Big Smile A question: when we switch to the new forums, will everything from the forum as it is now be moved over to the new software, or will we be essentially starting all over again? In other words, are we going to lose everything here in the move? That happened once on a forum I help to run ( a very small one!), and we were very sorry to see our old posts go, so I hope that won't be the case here.
