    Once or twice I had a problem, but Erik (the fix-it man), helped to get the comment posted. It was several months ago.
    We are thankful for all the comments that do get posted.

    Yes' one time

    Last week or the week before I typed a comment and when I got ready to submit it I received a message saying that the website would not accept the comment. I have no idea if it was marked as SPAM or not.

    Usually I copy a message before attempting to post it, just in case it doesn’t go through, so I can just copy it make to the reply box. In that one instance I didn’t and I did not attempt to post it again

      Sounds like the same issue. Since it was just recently, I am wondering if this problem just appeared or worsened lately. Perhaps there was a recent change in the way the spam system processes comments. I’ve found and am now looking at a new system. Will trial test it starting this weekend. Thanks, Oldkat.

    Quite a few times, actually.

    I am used to it by now. No hard feelings.

      Comment on A question for Amish America readers (November 9th, 2012 at 04:50)

      Traci I think I actually found one or two of your comments in spam and got them to post. They would not have shown up on “recent comments” box though since it was after many other comments had been posted. Sorry about that…I appreciate your understanding–now that I’m aware the main thing is to fix the issue.

    No problem Erik. On the few times it happens, I just leave and come back later in the day, it usually works then.

    Comment on Suggestion for more effective message board (November 9th, 2012 at 11:09)

    Suggestion for more effective message board

    Erik, I love this blog. I’d like to suggest that you transition it to a more traditional message board where one can see multiple discussion threads on one screen. The way things are set up now, it is difficult to continue discussions after you have made newer posts. I think there could be a lot of benefits if discussions can remain open longer.

      Good thoughts Ed, thanks. I don’t know that I’ll be able to transition to a full message board/forum, but may be able to incorporate some of those elements. I agree there are good discussions that get pushed off the front page, but which would be good to have more visible. It’s possible a sidebar widget of some sort may provide this within the blog template I am using. I am soon due to revamp a few features here and upgrade the template, and so putting this idea on the list :)

    Comment on It happened to me- (November 9th, 2012 at 20:38)

    It happened to me-

    Just the other day that happened to me, last weekend I think. It was the first time, I tried to post the same thought twice cuz it disappeared. After it disappeared the second time, I just said, “well Lord, you must want me to keep that thought to myself” and went on with my day :)

      Yikes Valerie! Maybe that was the case 😉 I have been monitoring the spam box vigilantly the past few days, and have not found any other stray messages landing there. When I first discovered the problem, there were 5-6 in there that were legit comments. Perhaps it was acting up for a spell. Technology can be mysterious :)

    a question for Amish readers

    I have to agree with Judith. I also have posted a comment and have never heard a reply. Also sometimes I have a question, but can never seem to get an answer. But still cannot be without this website. Awsome

      Thanks Linda, were these questions you posted to the site or in an email? Appreciate you still liking AA :)

      Also, if you want to be informed about new comments to a thread, just be sure to tick the “Check to be notified…” box (below) before submitting your comment. Then you’ll be sure not to miss replies if they are made (you’ll get an email notification).

    Comment on Yep (November 10th, 2012 at 21:31)

    Yep

    Hey Erik, I’ve commented several times in the past but I don’t think anything has ever shown up. I wasn’t sure why, though I didn’t let it stop me from continuing to read your great blog–and occasionally trying again. :)

      Comment on New anti-spam system (November 11th, 2012 at 09:56)

      New anti-spam system

      Thanks for letting me know, Cindy (and everyone else).

      I’m testing a new system now. You should see a small box right under the “Submit Comment” button below. Checking this will confirm you are not a spammer so your comment can go through.

      We’ll see how this works…should reduce the “false positives” that have been landing in the spam box.

    Comment on No big problems, none, well, one.... (November 12th, 2012 at 21:03)

    No big problems, none, well, one....

    I, for the most part, have been very happy with the reply function on the Amish America blog. Since I started replying I have had no problem with the program you use.

    It was odd though, last week, I tried to reply to something and the boxes that normally appear at the end of that day’s entry did not show up. As it happened, I was dissatisfied with what I had written as a reply, so I gave it some time, and waited to see if the function would return, sure enough it did, and I think I replied with no further issue.

    I only recently noticed the addition of the “click to confirm that you are not a spammer” addition. I guess I didn’t read this thread all the way through, and noticed it on the thread about the Elam Fisher interview.

      Shom do you mean the comment box? It the page doesn’t fully load that may be a speed issue and then I’d just say to refresh the page. Occasionally happens to me based on what kind of internet connection I have.
