Note to all bloggers....... (updated 18 Dec)

Blogger seems to be having trouble accepting beta bloggers to the SAL blog. I checked the settings and there's nothing I can see that I can change. I had an invite to upgrade to beta a couple of days ago but it's vanished now! Hang on to your invites. Hopefully it'll be sorted before we start!

Edited to add: I got my invite again so upgraded quick before it vanished! You should be able to join. Non-beta bloggers may not be able to comment right now though! LOL One thing or another....

Edited again to add: Blogger seems to have dumped all the invites. I've resent some of them but a lot of the comments on Plush are now showing as anonymous so I can't remember who you all are! If you need a new invite - email me. We have a month before we start so if you're having trouble and you're not on beta yet, hang on.

And again: If you're having trouble ugrading to beta it may be this blog as we've got beta and non-beta members now. I can remove you from the members list and send you a new invite so you can rejoin when you're on beta. Same if you're on beta but on here with a second, non-beta name. I can delete you and re-invite you (so you can join with your beta profile) if you want!

18 Dec: Several people who joined before I upgraded said their membership was greyed out. None of you were showing properly on my profile as being members so I've deleted all the pre-upgrade memberships and I've sent new invites! Please rejoin! I'm sorry about this......

This is SO complicated! We thought a blog would be easy for everyone! LOL!

S'ok Nicki, I rejoined Blogger, I didn't want to miss this - I have quite a few ornies kitted ready to go!

AnneS said...

Hmmm, I thought I was imagining things too ... my invitation has disappeared tonight as well - do you think we should be glad? ;P BTW, I have a couple more possible sign up candidates too - I'll email you the details :D

I hope beta blogger sorts itself out so I can join.

I just upgraded to beta today and got your invite :) It seems beta blogs aren't accepting the regular blogger logins to post, only the google account logins.

Paula said...

With old blogger it wasn't letting me join but beta is now letting me. The blogger website seems to indicate that the new version of blogger is coming out of beta very soon.

Lina said...

Um yeah.. I have no idea what all this beta stuff means, but I think I was able to sign up :) This one is via my Googlemail account, but my own blog is still a regular Blogger account, I guess. Well, it doesn't matter as long as I'm able to post on both :)

Nicola said...

I created an account with blogger as well as having my beta one, so I don't think I'll have any problems.

Barbara said...

I hope I'm still signed up. ;>

Wendy said...

Hi Nicki~ My invite doesn't work any longer, can you send me a new one, pretty please?
Thanks!

It won't let me join up either, but I'll keep trying. I'm using the old blogger right now and I'm hoping the once everyone has to switch over(which I think will be soon) everything will work out. At worst I can post links to my progress in comments here :)

Update: It let me join, but I can't switch my blogs over to Beta yet, so this is my lone Beta Blog for now :)

Nicola said...

Oooooops I do need another invite after all. Have e-mailed you Nicki.

Heather said...

I need another invite too please Nicki.

Holley said...

Well it still shows on my Dashboard but is now grey.

I tried to upgrade to beta but it wouldn't let me. Sigh.

I'm not sure what to do next.

This will all be sorted out by the time we have our first SAL, I'm certain.

Heather said...

Thanks Nicki,
That invite worked and I'm in now.

Chelle said...

Nicki I'm just checking in to say the invite seemed to work just fine. So far so good! Thank you!

Hi Nicki, Can I get another invite? eclecticmk@aol.com - thanks for all the work setting this up. :-)

Joanie said...

HI I am glad to be part of this ornament stitch-a-long!!! Thanks for inviting me, Nicki!!

Karin said...

Hi Nicki - would I be able to get an invite (caycay @ shaw . ca)

Michelle said...

I'm so excited ... this is my first SAL and I can't wait to see what you ladies make every month!

Happy Holidays Everyone!

Anne S said...

See what happens when you go AWOL for a few days ... look at the lovely long list of SAL'ers yippee! This is going to be fun :D

Carol said...

Hi Nicki, it appears I won't be able to actually post to the blog, but I can at least comment. I cannot switch to beta until the owner of our Neighborhood RR blog decides to switch over - that is the blog that is keeping me from being able to switch... sigh... In the meantime, I am really looking forward to the SAL!
