    I’m having issues changing my password, I go to login again and its changed back. And could you please put the numbers back on the popular baby names by year. I know you’re working out a lotta bugs but just thought I’d put those in.

    I just tried to change mine and it did the same thing. I will ask someone look into it, and I’ll pass along your names request!

    Could you tell me how to message one another?

    I also still can’t do long posts. I tried to do a post on babynamegames for a game and it doesn’t show up.

    Lilybell, can you try to change your password again? I was just able to successfully change mine.

    SpongeCake, as of right now, we don’t have private messages.

    Lilybell, what thread was the post in, and can you estimate how long it was? You do know that the posts appear in order from oldest to newest here, so your post will be at the end of the thread, right? :) It’s the opposite of how it was set up at PC.

    yes it did let me change my password but ONLY to a strong password. If it labeled it medium it wouldn’t let me change it.

    And as far as the post I think the problem is it won’t let me copy and paste and use it in a post. I tried doing a reply to a post I made on the babynamegames and when I copied the original post to build off my reply didn’t show up. And I was trying to copy the other from one I had made earlier and saved on my computer.

    Adding links in makes you sign-in again and the sign in doesn’t work
    –I’m sorry I’m such a pain.

    Is there any way to switch the posts so the newest replies are at the top? I don’t remember if that was an option or just the default on the old site, but if it was an option mine was always set to that and it was SO much easier than going through multiple pages for new replies! Especially since this board seems to only hold 5 replies per page. Is it an option hidden somewhere or is that just not a feature here?

    Lilybell, you’re not a pain! That’s what this thread is for, and you’re helping us get things ironed out. I will check into the links first thing in the morning.

    TheWishingStar, there isn’t an option to change the way replies are viewed at this time. Sorry!

    Lilybell, as of now, the vanity link function is disabled. You should still be able to share URLs by pasting them into a post.

    What’s a vanity link? That’s a new term for me.
    And so far I’ve been able to write long posts; I am loving that! All my wordiness is coming out after all those cryptic replies I had to write in recent weeks. ;)

    ERROR: Duplicate topic detected; it looks as though you’ve already said that!

    I keep getting this message when trying to post a game in baby name games. I have tried to post multiple times but none of them show up.

    So my post shows up, I can reply but it doesn’t show up in the message board.
    Here is the link to the post: http://babynamesworld.parentsconnect.com/?post_type=topic&p=1607/#post-1608
    but if you go to the babynamegames board it isn’t there. Maybe all my missing posts are in this no-man’s-land.

    Lillybell, what happened was that the system was flagging some of your posts as spam because they were so. similar. I’m working on getting them restored. Sorry about that, and thanks so much for your patience!!

    A vanity link is when you can make words clickable. So I could have click here as the link.

    I’ve gotten the same message about duplicate posts–but the first time I posted it it didn’t show up. I’ve tried to reply to the same thread three times in the baby names forum and it’s still not showing up? Any ideas as to why that might be, Magster?

    Are we able to quote a whole post?

    As of now, there is no quote feature.

    Ash, can you tell me which thread/s? Did you receive any kind of error message? Thanks!
