Hello all! I have been trying to update our ToC thread to include the new 2015 challenges. Christa had given me the url link but I can't seem to get it to work - end up with a blank page. I have PM'd her first of all to find out what she is up to and secondly to ask what to do.

If any of you are really good at doing this, let me know. I can send you the link I have and maybe you can play around with it. GENIE- are you out there????? wink

You had better try Carolyn. Deb B. also tried and got the same results that I did - the changes aren't saved after they are entered in. Do you have the link or shall I send it to you?

I haven't had any luck.  Neither has my brother.  Any other ideas? frown

I chatted with "cattriona" who is a TG and after she tried to edit as well, the decision was made to contact TPTB to see what we can do. Without access to Christa's account (which I wouldn't want anyway), we can't make any editing permanent. Will see what they suggest.....

Thanks for the update, Jeanne.

I certainly hope Christa is ok....has anyone talked to her?

I even sent her a PM a while back and haven't heard a thing! This is starting to feel like the "Valli Syndrome"! sad

When you said in the beginning that she wasn't responding to your messages I checked her profile, and it said the last time she logged in was November 21st, I think. Now it's closed/suspended....

Here I am!!!  So so sorry to make y'all worry!!  I have just been super busy at work (like gone from home 16 hours a day busy!) and some other volunteer things on the weekends. PBS closed my account to get my attention to respond to Jeanne about the ToC.  (whoever the nice person was that offered me the India Black book from WL, that's how I found out my account was suspended...I came to accept the WL and had the door slammed in my face!...Sorry about that!)

Anyway....I told Jeanne that the best thing to do with ToC post is for one of you to just copy and paste all of the old stuff to a new post that you have access to. 

I'm still reading pretty steadily, just not quite as much.  I am about to finish up The Rebellion of Jane Clark by Sally Gunning.  

Hope you all have a fabulous holiday!!!!

Christa,

Phew! So glad you're back with us!! 

As for the copying and pasting...no one has had any luck. It just gives us a blank page :/
