No, this is not about my ALS!

Some of you seem to have a touchingly optimistic view of what I can fix here.

I can do NOTHING about website issues. General or personal. When the site malfunctions I suffer along with you. I recently received a couple of requests to help a member recover a password. Beyond my abilities. Ditto issues with private message. I also can not moderate blogs

I can moderate posts both from the auto mod and if something gets posted that is inappropriate. I can ban spammers and other low lifes. And I can move, merge and close the threads. By the way I think the OP can also close threads. Is this true does anyone know? I can't check this myself

If you need something beyond my capabilities I suggest you either pm David. ( that is my method of contact I do not have special access) or use the contact us option from the link on start page ( don't use the website problem link because that just sends you to post on forum.

Thanks everyone. If I could help I would but I can't and it expends energy on both sides to keep asking and explaining!

Nikki - Sometimes we just need you to hold our hand and tell us it will eventually be okay (i.e. when David gets to it). And you do that so well. And at other times, you appear out of nowhere with a solution to a problem we're not even aware of yet. Forgive us if we then subconsciously push you a bit higher on the "Forum God Yardstick". Regardless, thank you for what you (and other equally endowed personages) are able to do for our benefit...

Nikki, you are the best you can be, both as a moderator and person. You and Beky do a great job and I appreciate all that you do. Thank you both.

Sorry if I bothered you Nicki. I thought you would be able to fix it or get in touch with David because it at first wouldn't le me. I went to the contact us and to send any message it had those code like things that you had to type in first. I couldn't decipher any of them so my friend helped me figure out what they actually said. David even gave me a easier password now that I will be able to remember easily. lol

I wish I could have helped but as I said could not directly fix nor do I have any special contact with David above what any member does. Glad you got back! I never followed the contact us through to actually send a message. Was the problems one of those captcha things? Hate those!

Yes, it was and it was a extremely hard one to figure out.
