    Default Reduced functionality in the directory over the next few days

    Hello

    We're turning off reviews, wardrobe and SOTD functionality from the Directory over the weekend, so we can upgrade a few things and hopefully wave goodbye to this:

    Server Unavailable

    For those of you wishing to enter the Essentially Me review competition, you can submit your reviews before the deadline using the Contact Us link.


    Cheers

    Phew! I was a touch worried, but have done exactly that. I've just posted my review in via Contact Us and will also send it to Essentially Me : )

    First, thank you for your work!

    I think it would be clearer if in the future instead of "over the weekend" (which of course varies a lot depending on where on the globe you are) some universal term would be used, such as e.g., from 2010-11-xx 00:00 UT until 2010-11-yy 00:00 UT (or GMT or CET or US time or whatever). The weekend is over in Europe but not in the US (and the functionalities are not back yet).

    Still not back online yet. Had a few things unexpected turn up at the weekend. Aiming for Tuesday midnight GMT. If its any consolation, you will be able to edit reviews again!

    OK, tomorrow you should have the ability to edit reviews again. I would put it up now, but it's 3am and I've probably left some great big bugs in there which I should look at when I'm not half asleep

    Night all.

    The only addition to that request for timeframe clarification I would request would be "or whenever the bugs actually get ironed out - or barring other unforeseen circumstances which inevitably occur so we'll just post you when it's back.". ... love ya Grant!

    UPdate. Not sure what I was doing last night, but not sure it helped.

    It's lunchtime now, I'm not realistically going to get anything complicated done until the kids are in bed, so in the meantime I'll be doing lightweight stuff like responding to my squillion emails, and put up a few articles.

    Sorry it's taking so long

    Getting there. All the reviews are tranferred over, and it's currently transferring all the wardrobe stuff. My word you all have a lot of fragrance.

    Should be done tonight but if not, my 3 yr-old is at the Childminder tomorrow so should finish it then.

    Hi. I know there is a lot of work on-going at the moment, but I can't find any info about this. I'm having trouble adding fragrances to my wardrobe. I used to do it via the directory, but that function doesn't seem available right now. Is it just a temporary thing, or am I missing some new trick.....

    Just curious - will a "tally" of one's frags appear in the wardrobe. I don't see the total appear anywhere, as it used to.

    Thanks for doing such a wonderful job with this!

    Just noticed that a couple of frags are no longer listed in my collection, although I know I didn't remove them.

    The two that I noticed are missing are Skarb and Memoir Man. There may be more - I'm checking now.

    Did you add them back in, I can see them now?

    I've had one frag replaced by another: Mazzolari Vetyver instead of Malizia Vetyver. The Mazzolari was one I added accidentally a while ago and then corrected as Malizia, so it looks like some old wardrobe info has snuck in there somehow? I'll leave it alone in case you want to look at it.

    Also, how do we edit the text that used to be in the blue box? The CdG entry in mine has been screwed up - I guess by the cedilla - and I can't change it back.

    Otherwise, it's all awesome - thanks!

    [edit] never mind the mystery fragrance swap - looks like I caused it when I moved stuff to the samples category. All good!

    In "fragrance reviews", will we be able to see the thumbs up / neutral / thumbs down count or score?

    The totals are back toooooo!

    Can I just remind everyone that Grant has other commitments and it's mad busy so he may take a while to get back to you. Also, please remember we all basically get to use the wonderful site, huge fragrance directory and wardrobe functions for FREE! Yes I know many of us are paid supporters but we do get waaay beyond value for money!
