Were you like me this mornin? Usually, Typist grabs her coffee and we make the rounds of keepin up with our Dogster pals. We play games in the groups. We sniff all 'round.
But not this mornin. We couldn't post nuthin. Nowheres.
We barked the problem to HQ and got a reply back this afternoon.
Here's what the Watch Dog barked:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sorry this happened. It wasn't just you. No one was able to add content to the site.

We got busy testing right away and OPS launched a fix as soon as they were able to diagnose the problem. You should now be able to post comments, send gifts, and post in the forums again. You should also be able to delete comments posted to your pet pages, pawmails, etc.

It was all related to trying to stop the spammers which prevented anyone from adding content via pawmail, forum posts, comments, or gifts. They have re-worked the code to allow legitimate members to post, add photos, etc.

Thanks to everyone who took the time to contact us with the information we needed and who also helped spread the word via personal e-mail.

If you thought we weren't happy with spammers before, this new twist takes the cake. We couldn't even post in the All Paws Bulletin to let folks know we were working on it. Everyone was temporarily locked out, even the Community Team.

NOTE: If you gave gifts that still haven't shown up after OPS got the problem fixed, let us know so we can refund any zealies you may have lost.


Woofs! & Tail Wags!

Mom's been busy at "work" so we haven't had much fun.

We wondered what the problem was. Glad it is fixed. Mum thought it was some new control at the work place.
