Everyone, relax!!

So, the comment rating plug-in (those thumbs-up we use) is causing issues with my site server. I have to find a new comment rating system or risk crashing the site. Over the next few days, I will be experimenting with different rating systems. You can leave feedback in the forums (I’ll start a separate thread for feedback), but please try not to overwhelm the comments section with discussions about it. Thanks for your patience!

    Can I ask on here? I feel bad for always threadjacking.
    The Wendy’s Recommendations ad thingy on the side of the page, are those really recommended by you? I clicked on these earrings

        I think I’ll change the name to “Wendy’s Picks.” Most of the stuff is what I covet or would suggest for gifts (sort of a complement to my gift guides). Some of it I own and love.

      I have been TRYING to remember to click on Amazon here when I make a purchase. I’m already making purchase once a month or more so Wendy might as well benefit. This is the annoying thing about affiliate links. I might click through on something from this page but then I get distracted or I have to consider the purchase awhile. By the time I come back and buy it, the connection to Wendy is severed. Trying to create a habit of back-tracking. Otherwise, do you know who gets a small profit from my monthly purchases? No one.

        That was my meandering way of doing a PSA.

    I can’t stop laughing about AP’s comments on the Forum thread about not being able to handle the new thumbs because they are big and different and she can’t just can’t cope with it today.

      It was the big thumb that broke the camel’s back.

      That’s because you thrive on negativity.

        Um, no, that’s so NOT it. (Oh, and by the way, your own post here is a tremendous beacon of positivity…So much so I’m blinded by the light.) I almost never gave purple thumbs, but they were a handy tool for making blanket statements about any thread in that you could easily say, “Damn! I simply can’t believe that only 15 of you agree with this statement while only 49 don’t…” It was handy in that respect. But some on here quickly proved too childlike to handle purple thumbs. I dunno. I probably got more on here than anybody, and I certainly NEVER complained out it.

    Wendy- for about half of the day today I’ve been having issues with the site on my phone- not being able to comment, scrolling is weird, resizing is almost impossible, forums dont really work, etc. idk if its my phone or the new thumbs slowing things down somehow but I thought I’d let you know.

    I think I know what’s wrong. I installed a new plugin that how’s a popup for first time visitors encouraging them to follow me on Facaebook, etc. W e viewed on a phone – at least when I viewed the site just now on my phone – the popup makes the site look gray and you can’t scroll,etc. as soon as I closed the popup, all was fine.
