Today I pushed out some bug fixes to the classifieds.
One was in the My Messages outbox where some sent messages had been successfully sent, but where not showing up. This has been fixed now.
The other was with the dealer program where a page was throwing an error.
For the last week the notices regarding messages waiting were not going out. Please check if you haven’t recently.
The messages are there, but the notices regarding them were not going out.
My apologies for the inconvenience.
I understand that google pulled the plug on the email accounts for PennsWoods somewhere around 6:30 this afternoon.
You should use firstname.lastname@example.org if you need to get hold of me.
Amazon is ending the payment system that PennsWoods has been using for the last 6 or 7 years. While I consider Amazon Payments to be an excellent system, I’ve had difficulty making changes with Amazon in the past.
If you’ve recently made a payment via Amazon, there shouldn’t be any problem with it. I will shortly be removing Amazon based payment options from the site however.
PennsWoods.net email addresses are in the process of being discontinued.
Please update your address books, as I am now using email@example.com for communication regarding PW Classifieds.
The address of the website will remain UNCHANGED!
Emails previously sent to firstname.lastname@example.org have been moved to email@example.com, and currently emails being sent to firstname.lastname@example.org are being forwarded to email@example.com. I don’t know how long that will continue.
I apologize, one of the side effects of this is that I am quite a bit behind in responding to emails. I hope to be caught back up in the next few days.
A popular request has been for a means to delete existing messages under ‘My Messages’. I intended to provide this but didn’t have it ready at launch time.
This is in place now. Thanks!
IC3, the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center is reporting an uptick in scammers faking US Goverment websites.
I’m pointing it out here mostly as a reminder that these criminals are everywhere, and come up with really surprising approaches to separate Americans from their hard earned dollars.
I’ve added a ‘My Messages’ section to the classifieds, in the upper left.
Messages you send through the site will show up in the outbox now.
This doesn’t replace the system we’ve used for years to deliver messages to your email. However all your messages will be available under ‘My Messages’, and I hope that it will make life simpler for you.
Have a great Christmas Eve. Please don’t drink and drive. Please do have a good time.
I’ve occasionally been asked about the available size of the description in PW Classifieds. It is currently set to 3,000 characters.
Today I installed a package that will check the size of the message as you type it, and let you know when you are running short on space.
Please let me know if you run into any problems with it, if you hate it, if you love it.
