Not liking it...

I wonder what's actually working on shmooze... Tried to upload videos, they go to never never land , tried to upload music, "YOU HAVE NO ACCESS...", too many redundant buttons..., tried to write a note (this note), I ought to tag it....

    Perhaps there are settings on your browser preventing you from doing things.  Post in the forum or leave a comment here outlining your settings in your browser, add-ons, etc., and we will see what we can do to resolve things for you.  Even though it is outside of the normal tech help to help with a client's local machine, we do want to assist the users as much as possible on problems they are having using the site.

    Hey guys, for all the things that aren't working yet remember there are features that are. Yeah, there have been a few setbacks that have derailed a smooth transition & believe me we're as frustrated & irritable as anyone, maybe more so. Everything provided WILL be working & operational before long. all this technical work has to be done cautiously & correctly or it throws a cog in the whole machine.  The Team working on the Site might be small in number, but they are knowledgeable & hard-working. Maybe people tend to overlook the fact that Shmoozezone is a Not-for-Profit site, unlike the majority of the other ones out there & is set-up, built & operated free-of-charge by Volunteers. Things have to be done "when" they can be done. Everything, every option, ever feature has to be paid for somehow. There is a FREE standard level for All, we'd like to be in a position to offer EVERYTHING to EVERYONE Free-of-Charge, that's just not possible or practical. You'd have every spammer & troublemaker taking up residence.

     As the Site gets a more stable foundation & everything is working satisfactory, we'll be adding New features & options to accommodate the needs & wants of practically anyone. First steps are always a bit wobbly & shaky, Patience is usually Rewarded.

    Everyone is a valuable component  here. All your opinions & suggestions are important & are being heard. Everything just can't be done at once, but it will get done.

    Well notes work.  Sealed

    Seriously, we're doing what we can to make this place the best it can be.  It will take time to do it, and we have been up against a rather large number of obstacles on a shoe-string budget and a compact timeline (if Multiply had been able to close the place when they said they were closing it.  It's taken them over one month now just to find the 'off' switch).

    Anyway, I understand the frustration, hopefully this thing is going to become more and more usable over time.  In the meantime we are going to take care of the biggest annoyances first, and that pretty much has been the site working at all up until about a week ago.  Right now it is getting the video and music uploads to work.  Removing links to "you can't access this" pages are still somewhat down the line.

    We have not had a lot of time to actually work on the site.  Remember that the development team is not doing this as a living; it is done in their spare time.  They have to go out and work for a living just like anyone else.  Getting the dedicated server set up took longer than anticipated due to a company "jerking us around" which cost of two weeks of time.  We finally said enough and found a good company to lease the dedicated server from.  Then of course there was the holidays; the members do have a life outside of working on the site; family obligations must be met just as for anyone.

    Yes, we are aware of the video and sound upload problem and are working hard to resolve it.  We have said we will reset any gold membership when we get this problem fixed so that it is as if  you just purchased the membership level.

    There is a big graphic on the home page that outlines membership levels and the fees.  Just scroll down the home page if you don't see it at first.  Furthermore, that information is found by going to "My Membership"

    It is not always possible to remove links; we will look into it and see when it might be possible but you are talking about thousands of scripts that control the site.

    As for what is working on Shmooze for free memberships?  One can post blog posts, chat with their friends in real time, customise their profile page, leave comments on friends pages and any post, blogs, photos, videos, etc., create polls, embed videos and sounds to their profile page, post on the forum, send private messages.

    yeah, it's not working very well at all. Profile blocks: You don't have access. Um, really? If I don't have access, remove the doggone link. We are not amused at all.

    Back to the other crappy sites I use. *sigh*
