Oh!what chaos!

Postby FredFromOssett » Tue Mar 08, 2016 11:13 am

If you are reading this, you have presumably solved the conundrum of how to access the forum.
Yesterday morning, there it was; yesterday afternoon, there it was - gone!
The KG website seemed to have been hijacked by someone called Zeddit, with no apparent links to the forum.
Oops, big-time, or what? :? :x
Seems to be confirmed by users browsing this forum showing as zero (other than me submitting post)!

A point I have made on the 'new website' thread before reading your post.
Stick a note on there as well about it.

The danger when people start to believe their own publicity is that they often fall off their own ego.

You are lucky to have had an email. I had to discover how to reach the forum by contacting Mortons Media. I find the link via the speech bubble icon is unsatisfactory in that (at least on my PC) no legend of any sort comes up if you hover the mouse over it, leaving you with no idea that it is a link to the forum.
My concern is that if I have not received an email notification, how many other forum members have not either? From whom has your email come and from where did 'they' know to contact you?

I went on Facebook to be reassured not just me. No link there just saying there was a problem. Never mind -here we are all back again!

Glad it's working again. I had the Zeddit problems too so I emailed KG to find out what was happening and they got back to say there was a problem. At least I knew it wasn't something that I was doing wrong.

Do not put off thanking people when they have helped you, as they may not be there to thank later.

I steered well clear of anything to do with zeddit. Just read it as a 404 problem so sat and waited, and checked, regular as clockwork, to see if it was back up and running
