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

    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…

    Tis now the very witching time of night…

  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.

    @1tess take 2: Not necessarily:

    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.

AdSense Widge (9 posts)

  1. I have an AdSense account and I’d like to use it on my WordPress blog. I’m currently using an online WordPress blog, not using WordPress software. Is there a way to implement AdSense into my blog pretty easily?

  2. If you are referring to the blog linked in your user name, the answer is no. Adsense is NOT allowed here. (And had you searched the forums, you’d have found that answer faster than you could type the question.)

  3. Thank you so much for your obnoxious reply. Just a simple answer would’ve been great but you had to go and, again, be an obnoxious internet blogging know-it-all.

    Thanks and up yours!

  4. And I’ll remember your gracious response as well.

  5. Mr HillBilly, if you keep looking gift horses in the mouth, eventually one of them is going to bite you…

  6. @billy
    Wow I can guarantee you won’t get any help in the future from me after leaving a ungrateful response for one of the most respected veteran volunteers,

  7. Like me.

    Yo, you hillbilly fucker, if you’d look farther out than your first-blood relatives it would be easily to find the answer.


    And, indeed, as someone who earns her living from ads I’m in a perfect position to advertise and advise you, but the fact is, I think you’re a shit. So DIAF.

  8. Can this thread be made a sticky? It’s a classic!

  9. What can I say, I get cranky when I have to deal with the inbred!

  10. I have a serious question… I am not permitted… you mean it is forbidden? or… you just can’t because you don’t find a way to do it?

    Thank you

  11. Seriously, adsense is not allowed. There are some fine points, and you can find them by searching. But if you want a place on the web where you can run your own adsense, chances are that wordpress.com is not that place.

  12. Seriously, I think that’s not what I asked, or I don’t fully understand your answer.

    I searched the web and found a few ways (not really easy) to advertise so don’t tell me that’s impossible… I only want to know if it’s forbidden, or you just can’t because you don’t know how…

    Best regards

  13. @szakacsszabolcs
    Adsense is forbidden here @wordpress.COM

    You could of easily attained this answer by searching the forum
