I am sure some of you have figured it out. Some Active Rainers were not able to access any of the blog posts that are labeled "Member's Only." The good new is... I just checked... and it is NOW working ! Hooray.
This had been going on for about the last day and a half. I spoke with Active Rain a few times, I emailed them, and I have even commented on the Active Rain "Facebook Page."
Did you know that there even WAS an ActiveRain Facebook Page ? I only found that out during the last "outage" AR had about a month ago. I was told several times, and had also seen the message several times on the AR Facebook page... that they were "working on it."
So... if you had not been able to access any of the Member's Only posts... that was the reason.
Also... if you are an Active Rain "Newbie" who has testing the water before you made the Active Rain plunge... you could only access, or only post Member's Only posts. What this meant... during the 36 hours or so that Members Only posts had not been accessible... is that you are only able to read posts... but not comment on them.
Secondly... if you had written any posts... and marked them "Members Only"... and had not received any comments, and were wondering why... now you know. Although your Members Only posts could be read... many Rainers... if not all... were not able access them in order to make a comment.
Also... in trying to figure out what was wrong... and why I could not access any Members Only posts... I thought that before I called Active Rain... I would look and see if Nikesh... the new Active Rain dude... had written a post communicating this problem to the Active Rain members.
For quite a while there... after he became the head dude... he was great in keeping us informed about what was going on when problems arose. But... after looking for a post from him... I found that he has not written any communication posts in about three weeks. After being so good at communicating right after he came on the scene... not seeing anything made me wonder if the Tea Party was holding poor Nikesh hostage. Oh Golly... I hope not !
Nikesh... are you alright ?
But again... I just checked... and Active Rain has come to the rescue. Our Members Only posts are now able to be accessed, and able to be commented on. Active Rain... thanks for all the work you did to fix it.
