    Thanks to Mike or to the person(s) who restored BrainTalk this time

    We weren't here for most of Sunday but by some magic, we're back here. I don't know what happened but would like to thank whoever fixed the problem.

    I'm guessing you were responsible for getting us back on line last night. I saw your reply to agate yesterday on BT's Facebook page. I'm sure figuring out what the problem last night wasn't what you wanted to do after coming home from work.

    The last time BT went down, we got 404 errors. This time, I got a message that BT was not responding and to check my internet connection. I hope that you cured whatever caused this glitch, so it won't happen again.

    Thank you so much for all you do for us.

    Love & Light,

    ❤️❤️❤️❤️

      Howdy howdy :)

      It was a bunch of bad bots, very bad bots (basically foreign search engine bots) that were hammering our site with requests causing it to crash. Our awesome host figured out why this was happening and told me how to fix it :)
      Question: Why can't I post links or pictures?
      Question: Why can't I have a signature, avatar, or profile picture?
      Question: What's wrong with my account?

      Answer: You are in the "registered users" user group. This group is very limited in what it can do. This will annoy spammers to no end Just keep posting once you have been registered for 30 days and have made 11 posts your account will be "unlocked".

      It's really easy to put someone on ignore and it's strongly recommended that you do so with people who's posts you don't like.

      Step 1 - log in
      Step 2 - click on the "settings" link
      Step 3 - click on the "edit ignore list" link on the left side of the screen
      Step 4 - type (or paste if you copied and pasted it) the username of the person you want to ignore
      Step 5 - click the "ok" button on the right of the screen

      Easy peasy and will lower your blood pressure. One important note though, this won't hide quoted posts. It's an oversight on the developers part and it's not an easy thing to "fix." So if someone quotes someone you have ignored, you'll see the quote.

      Alternatively when you click on a person's name and view their profile page, underneath their avatar, there is a option that says, "Ignore this person". Click that link and then click the yes button.
