This is not a real post. This is a post that has come about based on the fact that numerous people are telling me they are either unable to comment on my site at all, or they are forced to log in either under Facebook or twitter or another email address not corresponding to their gravitar or WordPress account.
I assumed this was a WordPress issue across the board and was hoping they would fix it and all would be well. I had not heard back from my many inquiries that I have made since last Friday, so assumed they were just bombarded with emails and that was why they were lagging behind on their answers.
Well, I have finally gotten a response. And it seems that it is not across the board. It also seems that there is nothing wrong with my site, according to support:
I took a look and everything seems to be working properly. They should be able to comment without an account. Otherwise ask them to send us a screenshot through this e-mail address: email@example.com.
So, that is what I am asking. Obviously, all is not working properly, or I would not be getting emails from everyone telling me that they cannot comment, or having people comment but having to approve them anew because they are submitting the comment with a different email that they have not previously had to use. Obviously, this is all a big pain in the ass for you, and I do not want anyone to have to be frustrated just trying to leave a comment, or alternately not be able to do so at all. Especially when there are prizes to be won!! 🙂
Accordingly, I am asking that those who have not been able to comment, please attempt to do so again. If, once again, you are unable to comment, take a screen shot of the page that denies you (alt+PrtScn), and please email it to the above address.
Also, even if you have been able to comment using a different email or account, please try to comment the way you normally are able and when you are denied, take a screenshot and email it to them.
Please help me out with this everyone. I don’t know what you are seeing and I need them to know what is going on, since they are not seeing a problem from their end.
I live for your comments. I love all of you peeps and the fact that you want to say something is invaluable to me. I don’t want to lose that or for you all to get discouraged and just go away. That would break my cold dead heart. Don’t make me beg!!!
Ahem. Sorry about that. I hate it when I get all gushy and demanding.
But really, if you could help me out with this, I would really appreciate it.
Hopefully, with a group effort, we can get this all sorted out in time for more hilarious posts from yours truly. Because if the problem persists, I may have to suspend my upcoming planned posts until we can resolve it, because I don’t want anyone to not have access as they should. And I know you don’t want to miss out on all my brilliant hilarity, now do you?? Don’t do that to yourselves!! It will only hurt you. :~]
Thanks everyone. And please let me know if you get any response from them as well.
