I can get on the other forums fine, but I still can't access the club member thoughts area.

I emailed PBS to see what they say.  I know they were doing an update last night but it should be working now I would think.  I also rebooted my computer to see if that would work and no response. =(

Keri, I have the same exact problem. I have tried it with IE 7,IE*, IE9, Firefox and my droid phone ALL worked Sunday just fine and now I cannot get onto the CMT.

I've tried it with 3 different computers as well, my work one (IE7) and my Home one (IE and firefox), my laptop (IE8).

I tried asking one of the live help people but got no response.

I cleared all my cookies, my internet history etc so no old version was there and still no issue. I read the error (Http 500 Internal server error) to my hubby and he said its PBS not me causing the issue.  Then I was told they'd done an update, :(

No problem here -- using Safari on my iPad.

ETA: Also tried my PC with both Firefox and Chrome -- no problems.

I wish it was just solved with a change of device, I just talked my coworker into letting me try his Ipad, still can't see that forum. (not sure what he uses to view the internet on there).

That's weird. I have no problems and lots of other people are posting there too. Can you use the direct link? http://www.paperbackswap.com/Club-Members-Thoughts/forum/41/

I can access CMT, but not post from our new IPAD. Works fine if I use one of the laptops or the I-MAC.
