I know there's no bug fixing as of right now, but I figured I'd post anyway just so that it's up here. :smt108

Time of Incident (include your timezone): 9:08am Pacific Standard Time
Browser: Mozilla Firefox
Page You Were On: Notifications
Describe What Happened: It's happened twice already where I have a notification that's linking me to a wall comment I'm having a conversation in on another's wall, yet it will suddenly link the comment to my wall. When I go to the users wall to see the wall post and the comments below it, it won't load the comments on their page. Just one of those weird sporadic things that's happened to me. I don't have the problem very often, but the fact that it happened twice I figured I may as well report it as a bug.

Just a minor bug: When you unfollow someone there's an annoying typo-message that pops up. =P

Aaaaaand now I realize how much we need Nate! D:

Just to drop a quick note, the sign above still constantly comes up when trying to post a contest.

Got YWS?

If, when you mean to type yes you type yws, you know you belong. :P

Kagi, could you please PM me with a screenshot of the information you're attempting to post in the contests section? There's perhaps something you're trying to do that won't work. Also, since you've reported this before, please refrain from doing so again. The report is still here, so be patient during Nate's absence as bug fixes won't be available for an extended period of time.

Though, as I said, PM me and I will see if it's an issue on your end. It could be something as simple as a version of Internet Explorer you're using (which you should change to Firefox anyway, since IE is awful) or a matter of needing to clear your cookies on YWS.

I do not have a Writer Feed Pad account!

I mentioned it a few posts ago, in the correct form. But it never got addressed.

Hi Lion!

We're in the middle of a wavy period regarding bugs, we have no one to fix them. Don't worry, we're working on it!
I like you as an enemy, but I love you as a friend.

Sorry Penguin. I sort of went in a rage.

Lion! And others who have similar issues, read this for a temporary "this is close enough" fix.

If you don't have a WFP account (which new members don't for a reason we're not sure of), you can still use WriterFeed Pad. Simply go here, or type in http://www.writerfeedpad.com in your browser, and click "Create New Pad". While it won't be linked to your account, you can save the link and have access to it at any time you want.

If you do that, please put your YWS username at the top of the pad for reference, and be sure to follow YWS rules in the pad. Be sure to save the link because each one is unique, which means you're not likely to remember a number/letter combo that easily.

Er...speaking of writepad...it seems I can't access it. Do you know why? It happened before I cleared my cache and it's still happening even after I've cleared my cache.
Check these out please! :)

Not sure if it's a bug or something, but I am unable to forward PMs? I didn't even know it was possible till today.

Describe What Happened: YWS's Site removed the majority of my story, cutting it off mid sentence. I didn't edit this and it was only just recently pointed out to me by another member. I'm honestly not sure how this even happened.

This isn't a site bug, it's about the 'YWS Activity update' messages.

The thing is, I've clicked unsubscribe a couple of times, and I get a notification saying successful, yet I still receive those emails.
It's a great feature, but I get onto YWS pretty much daily and it's sort of redundant and clogging the inbox.

Don't worry if it's a big deal.

Nate, can you please help me? My computer must have glitched, and I accidentally posted the third chapter of my novel "You Can Call Me Sam" 4 times! Is there any way you can delete three of them?

Hello!

I need help! I had posted my first novel called Graduation and the first chapter - 'Prologue' as well and I've gone through all the steps to publish it. However, when I go and see the novel on the novels page, it says that it's been authored by some other writer and not by me.

Though It still says that I wrote the chapter even though the novel comes authored under 'WrittenInStone'. I don't know what to do about this. Here's what it looks like - novel.php?id=1634 And I also don't know how this happened - novel.php?id=2046

I'll be most appreciative for help! >.<
