We have routinely had problems with getting comments to our friends to show up. It had been going pretty well the past few weeks but suddenly got bad again today.
Of the first 10 friends we visited, only 2 comments got through, and THEN, the picture verifications showed up. No matter how carefully TBT looks, he can't seem to satisfy the picture-identification-demands.
We don't know what makes those picture-demands show up. And, do you get them when visiting US? We cant tell.
We read that Google has made some changes, and mebbe that is the cause of the new difficulties.
We love ta visit our friends. We love ta leave comments. We feel like if ya dont see comments from us, ya dont know we visited. And that ya would stop visiting us...
We worry that the Gods Of The Sites are trying ta get us to leave by making it hard ta comment.
We keep trying. We will visit friends again tomorrow to see if things werk better (sometimes they do). We love our friends. It is all so annoying and baffling...
Dat stinks - da comment verification are a pain!ReplyDelete
Occasionally I encounter the picture ID crap when I want to leave a comment on your blog and on other blogs that I visit. It seems that when it happens one day on one blog it's more likely to happen that day on other blogs also. I had assumed that the Gods ae having a bit of a crackdown on security or something on those days.
The pic IDs rarely work the way that they're meant to. I just keep clicking for an alternative array until I get something that I can at least respond to. However, you can also click for alternatives using the icons. And ... sometimes (but not always!), you can just ignore the demand to participate in the picture ID and click Publish and it will go right ahead as though it didn't ask you to use the picture ID in the first place.
You'd think that "they" would have sorted out such a straightforward thing by now, wouldn't you?
All very frustrating.
My human hates comment verification! I hope this stops happening for you.ReplyDelete
I am sorry you are having problems commenting again. There has been a lot of spam going around lately so maybe that is why there is more word verification. Thankfully I rarely get it on the boys blog and when I do it is on old posts so goes into moderation.ReplyDelete
I have had a lot on my other blog though and always on the latest posts so I have had to put word verification there which I hate having to do. Hopefully I can take it off soon. I don't know what form the verification takes as there was just a box to tick and not a choice of type. It shouldn't affect Eric and Flynn's blog though.
We hate captchas and verification stuff, and we know some furriends have problem commenting from time to time (we sometimes have problems on some blogs too). Thus we check our spam folder every week to make sure none of our friends get lost there. As you say, the Lords of Sites' ways are mysteriouos... PurrsReplyDelete
Happy Valentine's Day sweeties! Yes, we have that picture thing pop up on some blogs, not yours, and it is very frustrating.ReplyDelete
