I see from my news page that I have received a pm. I can’t access or use this facility in my account. I have tried from several different devices but it is totally blocked and has been for at least a year. I know that if I close my account and open a new one I could probably use private messages again but I am not keen on doing that.

If you have contacted me, I apologise for not replying!

Hello Melchi, I am here, not in the box :-) But is this webpage run by some IT?

Ask Dave Mel, through Contact Us.......
If you can't I can ask him to look at this blog if you wish

I have had a long correspondence with Dave, Pam. He says the "powers-that-be" have moved on from GoY, considering it a done deal. They decided my problem is "operator error" which means my fault, which I know is rubbish. He was very apologetic, but can do nothing more about it. GoY now belongs to people who have many irons in the fire. I now have the choice to put up and shut up,or open a new account!

As you see, Katarina - ownership of GoY has moved on!

Melchi have you tried opening a new account, I know you said before that you didn't want to but it would be interesting to see if by doing that you would have access with PM's, you wouldn't have to close this one down, Karen's old account is still open, I checked just to make sure, if you remember she opened this one for her new home and garden, I'm not a teccie person so cannot really help solving your problem with this account but was thinking its worth a try and see how you get on...

8 Mar, 2016

 

Yes, Lincslass, I have thought about it, and I know that Karen did open a new account successfully without losing her old one. Since I had the problem, I have only had a couple of PMs so I haven't been too addressed by it. I really appreciate the sympathy and suggestions I have received from other members. To be honest, I was rather annoyed by the brush-off although I know it wasn't Dave's fault (nor his brush-off) but I am reasonably computer-savvy and know the fault is not twixt computer and chair!

Many years ago when mine went haywire it was the server code (think it was called that) that was wrong, in those days Ajay and Peter were the the ones running the whole shebang so of course it was easier as we worked our way through it via my own email account away from Goy, Ajay was able to guide me through it and I didn't lose any of my pages, different now it seems...

Hmmmm.....at least Goys still going, a case of put up or shut up?.?....
Worth trying Mel, the only thing is do you need another email address?...

9 Mar, 2016

 

I'm not sure about that, Pam. One usually does for another account on the same site. No problem there, I can get another one or use OH's - he never uses it: if forced to provide one he usually uses mine because he has nothing to do with anything online!

You could be Mel O H.....😆

9 Mar, 2016

 

LOL, Pam you do make me laugh , Melchi if we see that appear we'll acknowledge asap so you know we're on standby to see if it works......

9 Mar, 2016

 

Sorry for open question, what does it mean, Melchi? Does it mean that new owners can manipulate the blogs, can lock us, erase us etc? Is it run by David Cornwell and his clan or what? Or by Donald Trump? Oh well, at least Donald Trump has suitable haircut for this webpage, reminding me of Stipa sinensis.

Lol...

Sorry to hear you're having problems with your PMs, hope you get it sorted somehow. I didn't know that ownership of GOY had changed. Hope it can keep on going!

9 Mar, 2016

 

Wonder what some of these Goy members are going to do when Trump gets elected, move to Canada? Melchisedec, with regards to the PM, that was me. It had to do with your daughter-in-law's beautiful wedding dress.

10 Mar, 2016

 

And me - I sent a PM yesterday, just to see if you could access it, didn't say anything of any importance.

Well, thats interesting, about the change of ownership - sounds as if its being left to fester on its own, largely unattended then. Which explains quite a lot with regard to recent events on here - but I had an email from Peter recently regarding my email address not working properly, and asking me to reset it, that must have been oh, what, four or five weeks ago, so he still seems to be around.

Loosestrife - there's a topical, humorous tv show here called The Last Leg, and they said that, on Super Tuesday (in the States, obviously), when the results were out, the Canadian Immigration Website crashed within 20 minutes because of the number of Americans wanting to check it out... so it might not just be GoY members wanting to vote with their feet;-))) Apart from that particular tv show, I know nowt about all this politics stuff, either in the UK or over there, best avoided in my experience, its all too disturbing and stressful, and what will be, will be...

10 Mar, 2016

 

They're all going to hell in a hand basket (one of my Grans sayings)

Your Trump ......well Loosestrife he doesn't like us because of the golf course fiasco......

As to britain at the moment I daren't raise the E word above the parapet.....well not without a tin hat!😬
I feel like singing LaLaLa until its all over 😨

10 Mar, 2016

 

Okey Dokey, I'm not flipping having it, lol, who mentioned Trump, he's just appeared in the advert on the side of my page now thats what I call infiltrating, took great delight in hitting the little X and then I ticked irrelevent...

10 Mar, 2016

 

Who will not be " checking out" of the USA and going to Canada if Trump is elected are our illegal aliens and Syrian refuges, not to forget those who come to this country on favored nation status which entitles them to collateral free loans to start up a business and to enrole themselves and their relatives on social security and medical assistance so they can live like royalty when they return home, aside from this Bambo is right, Che Sera Sera.

11 Mar, 2016

 

I'm still in that rather lumpish laissez-faire state about the account! Nothing ventured, nothing gained, so I'll work myself up to it! (Watch this space, though - I shall use
OhMelchisedec !)Your concern and suggestions are much appreciated. I believe ownership of GoY changed quite some time ago, but Dave is still there. He said the owners (?) had newer matters to deal with and GoY is not a priority for them.

As for the political discussion, I'm keeping well out of it! 😉

11 Mar, 2016

 

I have done it. I am now Ohmelchisedec. I shall keep an eye on old Melchisedec, but I am going to start using the new account. Personal Messages is working fine on the new account.

I have a slight feeling of regret. How silly is that?!

(Mind you, when I saw that the avatar shows Ohmelchised, I wasn't very impressed - what will the uninitiated make of that? 😄)

11 Mar, 2016

 

Melchi I would feel like that as well, some of the avatars are easy to read but others do make one wonder where they have come from, pleased you are now getting your pm's....I don't talk politics as such but admit I did take delight in hitting that ad x when Trump appeared, mind you I would have felt the same irrespective of who was on the photograph, gardening adverts I don't mind...

11 Mar, 2016

 

I agree, Lincslass. I find some of the ads infuriating, though on the whole I tend not to notice them. Sometimes they just leap out at you, though, don't they?

11 Mar, 2016

 

LOL, yes and that one popped up immediately, tried blocking them all but it caused problems with my seeing photos on members blogs, haven't a clue why so now I mainly ignore them and just block the occasional one...

11 Mar, 2016

 

I have just been prompted by this discussion to install Adblock Plus. I had it on my PC, but hadn't bothered on the iPad. So now I've got a lovely empty right-hand margin again and no banners across the top. Peace at last!

11 Mar, 2016

 

I got 40% off a holiday to the Canaries.....

Sorry Lincs that was me 😶
