Re: Registering Problem

OK, so on top of the registration problem - do NOT go to your profile, and edit account settings re: changing your e-mail or password. Because if you do, the system asks you to re-authenticate your account. And because the system can't generate e-mails - you can not re-authenticate! I just found thi...

Re: PM Stuck in Outbox?

Molly, It likely means they haven't seen it. When the forum was working, a PM would trigger an e-mail to the person, and they would come and check. Now, it doesn't. So the only way they'd know it was there would be to look up top at the (0 new messages) and see (1 new messages) which doesn't always ...

Re: First Four-Fifty Critique Exchanges

No one has posted in this thread since December?
Or is my Internetweb being funky?

Anyway, with 1 month left, my inbox is open. For a swap - or just a read. I'm up for either if you don't have time to read, but want eyes on your start.

Mailing Lists - Good ones? Yours?

Lately I find myself staring self-publishing in the face. Like, literally. It's right there. During my research, the thing I hear most often is, "Get a mailing list." I understand many of us are just getting started, but with all the winners that visit, I figure there should be a place whe...

Regarding PMs

Seems that the PM machine is a little broken. It's not sending e-mails when a PM is received. If you don't see the little 0 turn into a little 1, then you may miss a message. I believe Martin's eventual update will fix this, but in the meantime, see if you have an unknown PM by checking the # next t...

And it auto-formats for tablets.

Re: Almost Success - The "Mixed Feelings" Thread

Emily,
Looking at my post 30 day history for that market, I have a 44 day acceptance, a 49 day rejection, and a 50 day acceptance after having received a similar e-mail.
I've got nothing between 30 and 44 days.
