    • Apart from loving the attention LOL, it's nice when someone responds, it starts interaction and is appreciated.   When someone joins and you ''like it'' at least they know their joining and any effort they have put into making a statement/introduction has been noticed.

    • February 4, 2017 7:11 PM GMT
    • And don't forget that you don't have to respond at all if you don't want to.  In fact, I'd say that most people who 'Like' a post or a photo or whatever, would never expect a response.

      Hope that helps.

      Katie   :)

    • Hello Hayley - I am no techie, but I understand this much : When signed in you first go to the main posting page where you can post at the very top of the page. This will appear in your 'time line' as it were on your 'bio page'. You can access this 'bio page' by clicking on your name and it take you to you. It will jump off that page after a few seconds for some timer reason I am not sure of, but all one has to do is hit the back arrow and you are now on your page continuously until you go elsewhere. You can post here too if you like uder the 'What's New' tab on your page if you like. Any posts on the main page you have first signed in to and had written on will appear here as well. Also on your page on the right hand side there is a tab for messages - you can click on this and using one of the names of the site moderators ( all the lovely ladies at the top of the main page ) you can send a message to any of them - they are all quite helpful. Hopefully I was able to help. Glad you are here. take care, hugs, Briana : )

    • Got notification that someone liked my wall post and I wanted to respond with a hello. How do I do that? I can't even find my wall post.

    • Hi there I wonder if anyone else has been unable to write a private message to a member using the iPhone 6 ?
      I can read messages sent to me but cannot reply because the reply or write message box is off my phone screen !?!
      Is there anything I can do to get around this ? Or is the site just not mobile friendly ?
      It's very rare I get to use a laptop or pc so really only have my phone screen

    • Thank you so much for trying. So far today it seems to be working...maybe it's one of those glitches that will fix itself...

    • June 24, 2016 10:53 PM BST
    • After looking at this, I think I need some more time to root through everything but I will let you know if I can find a better solution for you

    • June 24, 2016 10:21 PM BST
    • Thanks Matt.

      There are no pending updates, so yes, all updated.

      Desktop version, I didn't know there is a mobile version. Please, tell me more! Hope I can access it...I've never seen any signs to tell me to click on the mobile version, like I've seen on other sites.

      No, not that I'm aware of, just the Safari browser...

    • A few questions to begin Lisa,

      Is your phone upto date with the operating system? I.E. IOS version whatever it is...

      Are you accessing the mobile version or the desktop version from your phone?

      Is there anykind of software you use to see the site?

    • June 24, 2016 5:03 PM BST
    • I don't think anything can be resolved, but I always use my iPhone and the last couple of days have been horrible! After I write a comment on the home page, I tap Post Comment and it's frozen. I have to copy my comment, hit refresh, then paste it and hit Post Comment again. This has happened countless times! I try to like someone's post, and the like button is frozen, so I have to refresh yet again, then tap like again! Is anyone else experiencing this?

      There are so many glitches while using my phone and this website, but I put up with it because it's a great site. Anyone who is reading this who is not a member, please join, you don't know what you're missing out on. So much goes on on the member's home page! Please sign up and post things on the home page, like people, like their comments and photos...we'd love to have you! Support others and get support yourself. Just use a laptop or computer! Haha!

    • I used to use YIM a lot and I really liked it. I'm not a fan of FB though. (One of the few on the planet it would seem). 

    • March 17, 2016 11:32 AM GMT
    • I chat to friends in Facebook chat and YIM.  I get the impression that's what most people do now.

    • March 16, 2016 5:54 PM GMT
    • I met a lot of friends in chat but that was on the old site. I never find anyone in there either. Sometimes teh differing time zones can be a factor but I think that is only a part of it. I really can't say why Chat is underused compared to how it used to be. 

    • March 15, 2016 11:11 PM GMT
    • I have made a few very close friendships on forums.  I've met one of them and I'm planning to meet a couple more.  Not this forum yet as I haven't been here long  enough.

      I've checked the chat page a few times and there wasn't anybody there.  What sort of times would there be?

    • March 15, 2016 7:02 PM GMT
    • Your friends online are there to chat with, to ask questions and to pass on advice, praise, encouragement and to enjoy spending some time with, even if it is in cyberspace. Some of them you may want to meet one day as many of us have done, but it really isn't important whether you do or not. I have made some good friends here, a few I have met in real life, the majority I haven't and never will but I have had some lasting friendships here, which have been as equally important to me as my real life friendships. 

    • March 12, 2016 12:33 PM GMT
    • You don't have to meet people in real life, I have only met a few, a couple I would never want to meet again, some have left this site or are no longer active here, a limited few we have remained in touch and now and again meet up.  Even though it's cyber space one can still build up a relationship, it's called empathy and support, passing on advice, ralating personal experiences.   We get very few trolls and idiots on this site, there are some very erudite and knowledgeable people on here to help.

    • March 12, 2016 12:11 AM GMT
    • Oops - thank you.  I thought it would be something simple I just hadn't seen!

       

      Now I have to figure out what to do now I have "friends" as they are people I haven't met IRL.

    • March 11, 2016 4:28 PM GMT
    • To accept a friend request, simply click on 'confirm'. Or not, if you don't want to. You can also click on the person's name to view their profile before you decide. 

    • March 11, 2016 3:55 PM GMT
    • No Mary you don't have to pay for friends on this site :-)   Just above the red banner at the top of the page you will see a little cloud, thats personal messages, nect to that tyou will see two little people click that to see friends requests and the flag is letting you know if someone has responded to something you have posted.

    • March 11, 2016 1:28 PM GMT
    • This sounds stupid, but I've received a friend request and despite a long search I can't find any way to accept it.  Is the "friend" facility a paid-for option perhaps?

    • February 29, 2016 5:27 AM GMT
    • Hi Lucy,

       

      You're very persistent .. but please know I pay my way through life.  Usually because something is of value and sometimes just to be supportive.  But paying for the right to understand how my own images or words are being received just doesn't work. 

      But thank you so much for the reply. 

       

      All the best to you!

    • February 29, 2016 12:38 AM GMT
    • Hopefully to put your mind at rest, there is only one comment in your profile photos album: "Very glamorous Seleena" (and I agree)!

      I can understand it may be frustrating not to be able to read comments on photos which you have used for your profile pic in the past.

      If you really don't want to pay for membership (it's worth it, great value and for a good cause) then in future you do have the option to remove your existing profile pic before you upload a new one, so people can't make comments on a photo that you don't have access to.

      xx

       

    • February 28, 2016 11:51 PM GMT
    • Thank you so much for taking the time to explain, Lucy.  I understand how it works now. 

      Appears I need to go back to read the Terms of Use.  I just can't be comfortable with comments attached to my photos that I'm not allowed to see. Yikes.

       

    • February 28, 2016 9:34 PM GMT
    • Only paying members can create and view albums, but non-paying members can post profile photos, and they can change them as often as they like. Your profile photos are stored in an automatically created album which, as a non-member, you can't actually view; you will only be able to see your current profile photo. So unless you remove your current profile photo before you upload a new one there will be an album of all your former profile photos which only paying members can view.

      So it sounds like that's what happened; you get a notification when someone likes a post you have made, and if that post is actually one of your former profile photos then you, as a non-paying member, won't be able to follow the link to view it.

      Membership of this site is extremely inexpensive though...

      :)

    • Hi, got an email saying someone liked my post.  "Please click the following link to view it:" but when I click, I get "

      Private Page

      Sorry, you don't have permission to view this page or your need to upgrade your membership here:

      The url contains /album/ so I assume it's a photo. No, I don't have a paid membership but am  wondering if this working as designed? Could it be that I can't see my own uploads without paying?

    • August 22, 2015 6:52 PM BST
    • I have discovered that there are some issues when trying to upload new pictures or change profile picture & perform other requests such as answering messages or sending gifts, friend requests. When trying to perform these tasks a small 25mm x 25mm box or 1inch x 1inch box in old money :P

      Checking the java version I have found that Java have upgraded certain Browsers such as Firefox & Google Chrome to now run in 32 bit & 64 bit. So if you are using Windows 7 or newer you may need to download & install Java inn a 64 bit version to run alongside your existing 32 bit version.

      Here is the link to download the 64 bit Java

    • Hiya Maci,

       

      Sorry for the threadomancy on this

       

       

      Yes there is a solution to your problem you search for an application called Tapatalk, if you can manage to upgrade to the professional version all the better. Tapatalk allows you to access forums from your cell (mobile) device or using a tablet...

    • I go to the SocialDNA tab ( http://gendersociety.com/socialdna ), I click on the FaceBook "Connect" link and I am taken to this webpage ( https://m.facebook.com/dialog/oauth?app_id=132484816787516&client_id=132484816787516&display=touch&domain=gendersociety.com&e2e=%7B%7D&locale=en_US&origin=2&redirect_uri=http%3A%2F%2Fstatic.ak.facebook.com%2Fconnect%2Fxd_arbiter%2FV80PAcvrynR.js%3Fversion%3D41%23cb%3Df19770f31%26domain%3Dgendersociety.com%26origin%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fgendersociety.com%252Ff14d52ebf4%26relation%3Dopener%26frame%3Df333f532d8&response_type=token%2Csigned_request&scope=offline_access%2Cpublish_stream&sdk=joey ), and this is the text of the error I get: Given URL is not allowed by the Application configuration.: One or more of the given URLs is not allowed by the App's settings.

    • Looks ok to me Katie but thats just me.

    • June 9, 2013 6:19 PM BST
    • It's because of an effort to help the forums to pay their way by adding a new column to the right.  It shouldn't really affect images posted here too much though because that is also determined by the size of screen each user has.  Remember a growing number of our members now access the forums via their iPads and tablet devices and even smartphones which often have very small screens.

       

      In addition to the physical size of the user's screen, the resolution in which they are viewing is also a factor in what size various object appear to be. 

      So, making an image fit the size message box on your screen does not mean it will fit on anybody else's computer.

      However, if you all say that you don't like the two-column format in the forums, we can change it back to how it was.  I rather not, because we are terribly poor with a mounting pile of bills but if that 's what you want, just say so.

      Hugs, Katie   x

    • June 8, 2013 2:53 PM BST
    • Column widths have just been reduced over the past week in the forums, which means that images that were carefully sized to fit the width of the message box are now cut down on one side - also carefully crafted tables have been ruined formatting wise entailing a lot of work to re-adjust them.

    • Huzzza Ty Katie. You sure your not a Rennie? 

    • June 5, 2013 2:46 PM BST
    • Huzzah!  The forum moderators problem is solved.  Sorry it too a while for the develoopers to fix it but it's done now and you should all have full forum moderator privileges again.  Still working on a number of other items.

      On the up side, I'm hoping to be able to make an exciting announcement about some new toys and features related to our chat rooms at any moment!!

    • Multiple PM's don't work properly, typing in a person's user name to add to the list works in a hit and miss fashion, some user names are simply not recognised and they cannot be added to the list of names to receive the mail shot, meaning every single person who cannot be added has to be PM'd separately.

    • May 27, 2013 6:25 PM BST
    • Still not able to post a picture directly to the home page - despite there being a button for 'Add Photo' when you attempt to do so.  You can get around this by posting the picture in an album - and then it will show up on the front page - but it should work as stated.

    • May 25, 2013 6:41 PM BST
    • seems just Samantha,  all the site mods seem to have control, but I will check the other forums mods to make sure

    • May 25, 2013 6:09 PM BST
    • Yes, the Forum Moderator badges have disappeared from all the mods' profiles.  That is not a bug per se, but rather, because we bought some new forum software recently, which does not have a link to the badges software.  In order to reinstate the badges, we would have to pay a programmer to write some code to link the two together.

      I'll talk to some of our developer about this and try to get an idea of the cost.

      Also, I have checked Samantha's account and she is still the moderator of the Role Play forum, so she should have full access.  However, that's obviously not the case so I'll have to talk to the forum developers to find out what's happened there.  Do any other forum mods have the same problem or is it just Samantha?

      Hugs, Katie   x

    • Have you checked for the new messages notification button in the new info bar Chrissy - I still have mine present (see image below)

    • May 23, 2013 1:25 AM BST
    • 1. Chat rooms now display in a windowed mode rather than full screen mode like they did immediately after the upgrade

      2. Other problem as discussed in PM

      3. HTML code doesn't work correctly when you try and insert special codes in forum messages

      4. URL code does not work correctly in forum messages

      5. Left click in the right hand pane in the Chat Room freezes the Chat Room

    • May 22, 2013 10:47 PM BST
    • You would only have permission to edit anything in your forum, it says those messages here & this is my forum

    • May 22, 2013 10:15 PM BST
