problems posting possibly...

Hi everyone. So I know that this site sometimes has issues and usually they work itself out after a few minutes. However I have messaged the network support team to find out when they expect the site to run more smoothly...(are they running updates?)

So for now, be patient, and hopefully it will get better within the next few hours or so. Some things to try:

-Empty your cashe (it's like a memory that can get too full within your browser) For Windows, push Ctrl + F5.

-Try…

Good for posting issues on Quilt WIth Us

Hi everybody. Mari mentioned some folks were having trouble with either posting and some funky blue box outlines, along with a missing status bar. The site who hosts Quilt With Us (Ning) has some suggestions:

Try these steps:

1) I want to make sure you are using a supported browser with QWU. The network recommends using the following browsers:

Your privacy on the internet, a good article/help section on Google

I came across this while responding to a member questioning her privacy on Quilt With Us. I thought this was good information to share! It shows you how to remove information that you find about yourself.

delayed notifications from groups...fixed

Hello members!



Last Friday, the network's engineering team resolved an issue that was affecting broadcast emails and email notifications on this Quilt With Us platform. One of the servers was not sending messages properly, and after restarting the server, messages dating back several days were queued for delivery. It took a few days before the backlog of unsent messages were finally delivered over the course of this past weekend. During this time, there was some…

Update on birthdays...

Thank you to all who chimed in about whether or not to display birthdays on the main page of Quilt With Us. Most of you voted to remove this feature for an alternative way to display birthdays. We have looked into alternative ways to display birthdays in a fair way, but unfortunately our service provider does not offer any other way to do so at this time. We will continue to look for options in the near future. You will still be able to view  birthdays on  your friends’ profile pages (if…

Continue to show birthdays on QWU?

Here on Quilt With Us, we have always displayed today’s birthdays on the main page. Unfortunately, we are limited by our site platform to showing only the first 20 people alphabetically. Now that we've grown to over 27,000 members that means that half of the birthdays get left off. To the left on the main page, you will find a new poll. Should we keep the birthdays, or get rid of that section and make room for a different kind of feature? We are curious to know what you think, so please go…

Cutting Down on Spam!

Quilt With Us is a great online community of quilters and crafters; we have over 25,000 members to date! This is a place where we can share parts of our lives with one another, and learn new techniques along the way.



Because of our popularity, spammers like us too, but the feeling is not mutual when they post inappropriate content. In the past, we would delete any suspicious new members after they signed up. Now, we must approve all NEW members before they are able… Continue

All about tagging photos. How to add photos to a slideshow searching 'everyone's photos' by keywords.

Do you want to search 'everyone's photos to find a similar technique or common theme with your quilts? Great news! You can add keywords when you first upload photos, or you can add keywords later by clicking on your existing photo, and then in the upper right side there is an "options" drop down menu. Click on "edit your tags."

We have had many requests on how to search everyone's photos with keywords. For a while,…

Photos on Quilt With Us

There has been some talk recently about what kinds of photos should be posted on QWU. Back in May, 2009, Karen posted as moderator that non-quilt photos and posts are officially fine (read that post here). That policy still stands. However, since that time, membership has grown to well over 20,000, and the photos on the site number over 38,000.

When uploading photos to the site,…
