I had sent smaug my email because he was asking me a question about a website - I've gotten two messages from him over the past few days asking me if I could get to sploofus - because he can't -
"Is Sploofus down? I haven't been able to get on for two days. I assume it is the Beta

I'm going to submit a support ticket for him - but I notice there was a question about where is he in one of the other posts.

Is it possible, Lorri, that he is still trying to use the address? The day it changed I was searching for pictures, and when I tried to get back in I couldn't. It said "Server Not Found". Then I realized maybe I needed to use which worked, and that's when I realized the changeover had taken place. I had the beta address in a bookmark which I just clicked automatically. That may could be the problem since sometimes we just do things automatic or out of habit.

I'm betting he's still trying to get in through the beta addy, which is now defunct. That's what happened to me. I just retyped the original addy, saved it as my new favorite and bingo!

Heidi seems to be missing too - I wonder if there are a lot of folks stuck in their beta bookmark?

Anyone use their email link to get into the new site? How did that work? Maybe editors could get a real email sent out reminding everyone to use the regular address (w/o the beta).

I can't get into sploofus on my work computer, using firefox. It just keeps kicking out my login and password. I have to go to IE. I can get it from home though. Maybe he's having some of the same issues.

When they switched over I tried to get in using my bookmarked page and couldn't get in either but just typed sploofus .com in search bar and got right in. Every morning now i just use my email they send and have had no problem. Charlotte

Support ticket gave this answer:
Thank you for contacting Sploofus Support.

Tell him to try logging into instead of, or try coming in through his TQOTD email link. Hope it helps. If not, let us know. Thanks for relaying the message.

Best Regards,
The Sploofus Support Team
if you know of anyone having difficulties - maybe pass this along

I'm surprised he didn't just come in by his TQOTD email link.

Smaug is very computer savvy, so I should think he would have tried getting in through the TQOTD link or using the non-beta url. Hopefully he's not having some other issue. Sometimes software firewalls or other PC defense shields can prevent you from accessing a site. It'll be interesting to see what the problem was. Good luck, Smaug!

TQOTD e-mails? You guys are getting them again?

Is this how it started with Smaug - you stop getting the e-mails, people stop calling/pm-ing you back and then suddenly the lights go out and you're left with - *gulp* - reality?!

I wish I'd taken the blue pill this morning...

I've also read of some folks needing (or being advised) to empty out their browser cache, just to start at the new site with a clean slate, so to speak. I didn't need to do this however.

Yes the daily TQOTD emails have been working again for about a month now...

If I'm not mistaken there's a thread where Smaug was in Salty Dog chat the day of or day after the change over. Reference to a party for the original Beta members was discussed. Maybe there's some other connection issue.

Okay, whatever, looks like I'm connecting now. I tried all the obvious stuff.

This is the error:

So lesson learned!- stop touching that python [and yourself].
Glad you're back.

Glad you're back, Smaug! And glad you haven't changed that avatar as everyone else has (at least not yet!) Yours is so very unique!!!
