Now that you mention it, I DO have an opinion:

Deleted some of my blogs but no confirmation mail

  1. Deleted some of my blogs but no confirmation mail

    I’m deeply dissatisfied about one of my main blogs being suspended for more than 12 hours without any reply from WordPress staff. Just now that this blog is getting successful I’m not able to update this blog because of some ‘concern’ WordPress seem to have with ‘some of the content’ on this blog, and I’m still in the dark about what the problem might be and how to resolve it.

    It takes WordPress only seconds to suspend a blog/ user, just because they seem to mis the huge difference between advertisements and publicity … but many more hours to respond to my emails…

    So I’m seriously considering taking my blogs to a different host. And I’m getting more serious as the hours tick by. So I decided to start cleaning up some old and/ or less successfull blogs first while I wait for my verdict by deleting a number of them hosted at WordPress.com.

    For some blogs I received a confirmation mail, but for some I didn’t receive this mail so they will not be deleted. The email address is right so that could not be the problem. So any advise on how to get these blogs deleted anyway?

  2. Posting here won’t help. None of the volunteers in the forum care where you decide to host, and none of us can do anything about your suspension.

    I CAN advise you about the email: check your spam folder, as WP.com emails often go there, both the automatically generated warnings AND the staff responses to suspension requests.

  3. Well, you might be right about Wordpres not caring for their customers…

    But that’s not the (main) question, is it… Its about not recieving a confirmation mail with a link to delete my blogs.

  4. BTW I checked al my email and (sub)folders. No mail yet… and it’s about 14 hours ago that I replied to their request.

  5. It’s not an unusual wait; there are several other people who got suspended within the last day who are waiting.

    I didn’t say WordPress staff didn’t care about their customers. I said the volunteers really don’t have a horse in this race.

  6. You said the volunteers (that are working for this multi-million dollar business) don’t care. And I really don’t care whether they volunteer or not. They are working for and theirby representing WordPress as far as I’m concerned. So you telling me they don’t care actually means WordPress doesn’t care.

  7. Okay, at this point I have indeed formed an opinion; I hope you go elsewhere, because you are extremely discourteous to people who are just attempting to assist you. I won’t do that again.

  1. But again… it’s not about the WordPress ‘Shoot First, Talk Later’ policy. That’s just a bloody shame and the reason I want to delete a number of my blogs and considering hosting elsewhere.

    It’s about receiving no confirmation mails…

  2. Assit me? By telling me WordPress volunteers don’t give a flying…! Its getting beter by the minute… And I don’t even dare to write a review about it on one of my blogs because WordPress might think I’m advertising…

  3. How is this working for you? Making progress?

  1. Yep… You almost convinced me WordPress doesn’t give a damn about their customers/ users. This inside information is not the progress I wanted… but it’s information non the less. It might help to make up my mind about hosting at a place where they DO care.

  2. Sweetie, I don’t work for WordPress. At this point, they’d definitely have to pay me to care about you.

  1. I love you to…

  2. Hi There!
    Please take this issue up with staff directly it sounds like a possible bug http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact

    I also recommend checking your spam folder within your email client if you haven’t already done so…

    Also guy’s please stop the arguing or there will be a forced option to close this thread

  3. Oh no! If you do that, what will I do for entertainment?

    There’s nothing like giving directions to a lost and confused tourist on the street, only to have that tourist turn on you and berate you for the fact the map wasn’t easy to understand, while confusing you for an employee of the map publisher. I just love that.

    Now I’m going off to count all my map-publishing revenue. I hope that the tourist is off to learn proper English.

  1. I just contacted a hostingcompany. Just because I don’t car about a company that doesn’t care about their customers. Bug or not… WordPress staff already needs more than 16 hours to reply a simple request made on behave of their request.

    Ciao WordPress… ‘what a advertisement’ this is. You should see te REVIEW as soon as I configured my blog at this company that does care!

  2. Will it provide a spell checker?

  1. Americans seem to think that the whole world speak their poor form of English. But their are about 6 billion people on this world that don’t have this yankee tong as native language. These people tend to make mistakes when they are forced to conform to their narrow minds and tong.

  2. Well… I can post again… But not a word from WordPress!

    To little to late WordPress…

  3. Good riddance don’t let the door hit you in the rear on your way off the site.

  4. I see the WordPress mentality suits some users just fine. and that’s not a compliment.

  5. Okay as I can see nobody wants to heed the warning so the thread is now closed

Topic Closed

Awww, I never got to inform the drama queen that I was born in France, my first language was Walloon, and I live in Canada and speak and write (quite obviously) British English.

How can I stop people from making a new post? (23 posts)

  1. How can I stop people from making a new post? I don’t want anyone to make a post. I just want them to comment only. I want to reserve new posts for me only. Thanks.

    College Mom

  2. Please stop posting the same question more than once.

  3. Get a life, ellaella. This is my first time on here. Don’t you know what mistakes are? Your too wound up. Loosen up and enjoy life more.

    God bless

  4. Now THAT was completely uncalled for. Have an enema and a happy day 🙂

  5. Thank you, rain.

    And you’re welcome, collegemom.

  6. I think Raincoaster was saying that you were completely uncalled for in whish she is right. Chill out.

  7. No, raincoaster was saying that your throwing attitude around is not acceptable, even if it’s covered in rainbow stickers and wrapped in a bow covered in My Little Ponys.

    If you want the volunteers in the forum to help you, you have to stop reading emotion into posts that contain only instruction. If you want insult, well, you insult someone. And then you may find that, having lowered the bar, you are no longer comfortable with the bar set that low.

  8. She was the one throwing the attitude around. She didn’t have to say anything at all about my mulitble posts. She did not word it in a helpful instructional manner. I am new to this and mistakes happen. I was shocked she even made the comment. I would never had told someone that. Sorry about the confusion. I just may never get on here again. People are too sensitive. 🙂

    Don’t be shocked when people correct you for making mistakes. Correcting people is one thing; it’s what we do in a technical help forum. Blaming them is another, and that’s what you did. It has no place here.

  10. Can someone give me instructional comments on the question I am asking? I really need help. Thanks.

  11. Yes, follow the link ella posted to her response to your post in one of your other threads.

  12. I feel attacked for just making a mistake. Gosh, I hope others aren’t attached when they make a mistake. I am moving on and forgetting this whole question.

    Sorry to everyone else who had to read all these comments that had nothing to do with my questions.

  13. I saw that. Ella’s response is the right answer. collegemom2 seems to be so wound up that she forgot to go read what ella said.

  14. I cross-linked them all, tess, to save people the time of answering twice. Thrice.

  15. collegemom2 is going back to the other threads to leave an additional “get a life” comment. I will make no comment on that.

  16. She still hasn’t said thank you on any of her duplicate threads. Good thing I’m not sensitive…

  17. Thank you. 🙂

  18. If you look at the way the blog is structured:


    You’ll see that she’s set it up so that she wants to charge people for the right to comment on her blog. Going back to ella’s point, there seems to be some confusion there about the different roles on WordPress.com blogs, and a review is in order. We can, as David B Dale pointed out on yet another of these threads, all go to her blog and comment, without paying her $5 membership fee.

  19. Is that kosher, charging to comment on a .com blog?

  20. Is pay pal kosher?

  21. OIC. She wants to charge people to sell stuff using her blog to sell it. Alrighty then.

    Go ask in India: they are more knowledgeable about rebirths over there than us poor support-for-problems-re-wp-blogs mortals.

  3. Is your baby a WordPress.COM baby or a WordPress.ORG baby? Please check the sticky threads at the top of the forum to make sure you’re in the correct place.

    Rain, that ORG thing must be an evil place: I’ve heard rumors they genetically modify their babies there or plug things into them…

  7. pana: that’s probably true, but their babies can accept advertising tattoos, whereas ours cannot. The only problem is, over there you have to housebreak them yourself.

  8. I have to say, that this is the weirdest conversation I’ve seen on the wordpress forums

  10. I’m told vodka can remove the smell of smoke. I can’t confirm that though, I always pass out on someone’s lawn after the eight or ninth shot.

    @rain: Yeah, you cannot talk any adsense into them.

    @aw1923 (inspired by 1tess): I could a tale unfold whose lightest word would harrow up thy soul…

  12. Oh, it gets too scary after that…

  13. I have no idea what that means

  14. have you not read shakespeare?

  15. I have read it, but like a lot people in High Schoolers, it went in one ear and out the other after we took a quiz on the reading, though I did enjoy the movie versions of the Shakespeare Plays

    @tellyworth: That possibly explains your avatar.

    @1tess take 1: After the ninth shot, no doubt.

    What would “Hamlet” look like if it were performed by cats? Pretty damn good, in fact. Mr. John Over provides an excellent voice for the lead character, a Charlton Heston impression that is the envy of all. John Hoffhines provided valuable assistance as cat wrangler and composer, and the rest was up to the cats, who acted with the best thespians the stage has ever seen. This piece is available on the “God Hates Cartoons” DVD found at www.brightredrocket.com.
