Any interest?

in keeping this board open? I'm willing to give it a fresh start but only if there are users around that want to make use.

Post here and let me know!

It's gotten real quiet here... I've been on the twins board mostly.

I would be but unfortunately I'm not sure there are enough people who care to come here. Stinks that everyone chose to go somewhere else. :shrug:

it has gotten very quiet!!! I have had lots of issues with getting to the site. I use to have it on my favorites now I get some error message and can only access it from my home computer (not my ipad or phone).

They made some change that affected my bookmark link as well. I had to just delete my saved/bookmark/favorite direct link and re-save it. Works fine now.

Maybe if there was a pregnancy.org app for people who use their phones, there would be more interest. I only use my phone and this site is hard to use and upload photos. I still come on here every few days to check in on people waiting to get their bfps, but don't post. It took me almost 15 minutes just to try and log in to post this one post...

Sarah,

I took a peek at your account and believe that I found the problem with your account. I'll be happy to help you -- just drop me a note at [email]missyj@pregnancy.org[/email] and I'll send you instructions.

I still check in at least once a day, but it is very quiet. End of Summer is a busy time for most though.

Jennifer -- I can't believe you are so close with the twins' arrival! How are you feeling? I guess I need to find more time to stalk!

Maybe if a few of you want to try to see if you can use the board for sharing/conversations, I'm willing to help. Let me know!

We do have a mobile app for pregnancy -- but it is not what I believe you are referring to for use with posting in the community, on content, etc. I will definitely pass along your feedback and do hope that you are able to check in more. We do now have the ability to create your own photo albums. If you test it out, let me know what you think! You can post here or, if easier, drop me an email at [email]missyj@pregnancy.org[/email].

LOL I swear this whole YEAR has been busy for me. It has flown by! As for here -- maybe just post when you can? While I know it seems that there are just a few of you, there are *some* and since you all do seem to check in it may still be an extra place to share!

Thanks for the input! Keep it coming!

One of my biggest problems is signing in, and there's no option to stayed signed in all the time so it'll take me forever sometimes to get in and i just don't feel like trying and trying all the time. I got in today by a miracle I think Smile
I come in and lurk often though. I've posted a few times but there never seems to be any discussion so I just mostly have been coming and lurking.

It would be nice if there was an easier/quicker way to upload photo's. It's such a hassle to go sign in to photobucket, upload, edit, link etc.... Pictures are one of the funnest things about pregnancy/babies Smile

I recently learned this from my other bb -

  • for a shortcut to post pics on pg.org
  • IF you already have the pics uploaded somewhere you can right click on the photo and select COPY IMAGE URL
  • then when you are replying to a thread on pg.org, select the little picture icon (beside the filmstrip) and it will bring you a box that says URL and you can just PASTE your link
  • This will work for any picture posted anywhere that you can right click on and copy image URL

    It makes it much faster to post pictures on here.

Hmm... it should leave you logged in automatically unless you have your browser set to clear all cached files/cookies? If you are accessing from multiple computers (computing devices) and are *not* clearing your cookies out on any of those, you may want to try following these instructions. DO clear cookies on ALL computers/devices you access the site. Next, log in through the Pregnancy.org homepage at http://www.pregnancy.org and click on log in. Then navigate to where you wish to post onsite. It should keep you logged in until you clear your cached files/cookies or the cookie expires (which I thought was about 10 days but I can check.) Feel free to drop me an email at [EMAIL=missyj@pregnancy.org]missyj@pregnancy.org[/EMAIL] and I'll see if we can find a resolution for you. I *purposefully* clear my cookies / cached files frequently as I access from a number of computers and my phone so I always have to log in. I AM sorry though that it is not cooperating for you!

Smile Thanks for keeping your space updated. While I know it has been horribly slow, if you post do people respond (like on this thread?) Please know that is not meant as any sort of criticism. I am seeking honest feedback and appreciate hearing your thoughts.

Let me know if you test out the new "creating an album" link I provided in a previous post! I'd love to hear your feedback. Also the tip posted by regdahl is another method. HTH!

Missy, I'm hanging in there. Smile Been having some problems but learning that it's the "norm" for multiple pregnancies. Yep, stalk me on the twins boards, it's where I've been getting advice/help from since this is all new to me. I'll have to post a belly pic too.
