Make, learn and talk about needle lace.
Sorry everybody. The software says I posted all those photos. I just put them in albums. The software persists in announcing my action incorrectly. Can't fix it unless the ning team works on the problem, and they just don't want to.
A more serious potential problem has come up and I must warn everybody. If you delete yourself from membership, even intending to do it temporarily, the software also deletes all your content -- your photos, your comments, your questions, your discussions -- . Everything you created evaporates and is not retrievable.
So, if you are planning a trip and don't want a huge number of emails to greet you on returning, you can deal with that problem by telling the software not to send you any more emails. When you get back you can change that again. All the content is still there, it just isn't clogging your inbox. If you have questions about this contact me privately and I'll give more detailed instructions.
Also, a reminder about tags. When you attach tags to a photo or a discussion that you start, the software requires a certain "grammar" to be used. If your tag is multiple words you must surround the phrase by quotation marks, and each tag must be separated by a comma.
lace jewelry will be read by the software as "lace" and "jewelry"
If you want it to function as lace jewelry you must enter it as "lace jewelry"
"modern gros point" is a phrase matching many of our photos. But modern gros point will be interpreted by the software as modern, gros, point. And those 3 words will be useless if somebody outside our network is looking for photos of your work.
I noticed the problem with the leaderboards, too. I'll have to contact ning to see if they know why.
