      If I understand this right, the new version was up and running some time over night. Because I am not seeing it now, it must have been taken down because of bugs or something?

    3. Scared Monkeys on July 28th, 2007 11:10 am

      Marlee … refresh.

      The Forum changes were made overnight. The Scared Monkeys front page will be down for a little bit today. Not long.

    5. Marlee on July 28th, 2007 11:24 am

      Thanks Red, I can see it now it now. I was getting this all morning:

      We’re transitioning our site. Please try us again in a few hours.

      It looks awesome!! Now I am going to explore.

      Thanks Red and Dugga!

      And how does one get their account reacctivated?

    7. Flmom47 on July 28th, 2007 11:43 am

      I’m able to put up the list of forums but not allowed to access any of them. I get URL not found. Are guests not being allowed in?

    8. Scared Monkeys on July 28th, 2007 11:55 am

      #4 Smish .. it will take a bit for to migrate to the nw DNS. That has to do with the network you are on pointing to the correct spot.

      Be patient, should not take long

    9. Smish on July 28th, 2007 11:56 am

      Thanks SM

      I deleted my cookies and browser history then restarted my computer. This did the trick for me. Now I am able to access the forum. It looks really nice, great job!

    11. EasyWriter on July 28th, 2007 12:48 pm

      Hey!

    12. Smish on July 28th, 2007 12:58 pm

      How do you delete your cookies and browser history in AOL?

      ______________________

      America Online
      The America Online browser is based on Microsoft Internet Explorer. In addition to the information above, here are specific steps to clear your AOL browsing history:
      1. Select “settings” from the set of buttons at the top of the AOL window.

      2. Select “preferences.”

      3. Select “toolbar and sounds.”

      4. Select “clear history trail now.

    13. SunFreak2 on July 28th, 2007 12:59 pm

      I’ve been trying to get to the .net home page for hours now. “We’re transitioning our site. Please try us again in a few hours.” I hit refresh, same message. I tried deleting the cookies & history, etc, still no home page. What am I doing wrong?

      _____________________
      SM: Several people going through AOL are having problems. This started before the new forum change and may be an AOL issue not a forum issue. If you can use another browser like IE or Firefox try that. (klaasend)

    14. mishy on July 28th, 2007 3:01 pm

      Pressing my nose against the glass, I can’t get in. I’m using Safari and have refreshed repeatedly….AYUDA!!!!!!!! Can’t wait to see everybody and the new changes. Last night was sad with all the goodbyes, so I’m looking forward to saying hello!!!!!

    15. mishy on July 28th, 2007 3:14 pm

      I’ve deleted my cookies and refreshed too, but I’m still not able to get on…What else can I try?

      TIA!!

      Mishy

    16. SunFreak2 on July 28th, 2007 3:29 pm

      I can’t get in using IE 7 either. Wahhhhhh!!!

      ______________________

      SM: Sunfreak – try just going into IE without having AOL up. San was having the same problem. It’s an AOL issue that should resolve itself by tomorrow. (klaasend)

    17. Laura on July 28th, 2007 3:48 pm

      <p>I don’t have AOL. I do have IE6. I’ve cleared all cookies, cleared all temp files, and refreshed and refreshed and I still keep getting the message to try again in a few hours.</p>

      SM: If you have Scaredmonkeys.net bookmarked that could be causing the problem too, you may need to delete your bookmark. Try going to http://www.scaredmonkeys.net directly.

    18. JuJu on July 28th, 2007 4:53 pm

      I can’t get it either!!!!!!!!!!

    19. Janet on July 28th, 2007 4:55 pm

      HELP!!!

      I have attempted to log into the new site with my original user name and password several times. My first attempt did work … I was in the cage and … then I was booted out and … have not been able to get in since. I know that the username and password are are correct. I saved Tom’s original email to me when I joined the SM Forum on December 6, 2006.

      The page that appears …

      THE WEBPAGE CANNOT BE FOUND

      Klaas … how is Ducky. Are you taking very good care of him? Are you feeding him and … talking softly to him … holding him … petting his little head. He must be beside himself without his Tamikosmom.

      ____________________
      SM: Be sure to delete your cookies and if you have the forum bookmarked, delete the bookmark too. Ducky is safe and fine! (klaasend)

    20. Laura on July 28th, 2007 5:13 pm

      Sorry. Nothing works. I still get the same transition message.

    21. Robert on July 28th, 2007 5:41 pm

      Mishy and others:

      Emptieng your cache most of the time helps if you keep getting the same page. (In Safari: See Top Menu > Safari > Remove cache-files – or something like that; I have the dutch version, so I don’t know the exact english terminology.)

    22. Sam on July 28th, 2007 5:51 pm

      Klaas, San. Red, anyone.LOL

      I have tried all of your suggestions. Oh well maybe tomorrow.

      SM Sam

    23. Kat_Gram :) on July 28th, 2007 6:17 pm

      Ok, I peeekd earlier and it looked Kool, i liked the bananas. But it is ” in transition ” . no worries Dugga, Red and Klaasend. Could I have a spell and English checker ? kat ;) ;)

      ___________________
      SM: The forum is up and running. If you are having problems getting in then try deleting your cookies. Do not try accessing the site from a bookmarked link because that will try to take you to the old forum. Go to http://www.scaredmonkeys.net

      If you are still having problems let us know. AOL users are currently having problems and can’t get in unless they close out of AOL and use another browser. That should resolve itself by tomorrow. (klaasend)

    24. Kat_Gram :) on July 28th, 2007 7:45 pm

      Well I did all I can do, later taters.
      I deleted the cookies. I did use MSM, Yahoo and IE. I even tried going in thru the doggie door ( dogpile ). I was in before, but it was from work.
      Is this because I am Canadian and don’t have a valid passport ? LOL, Like I said, it looked great from work, so I will just give it time. xx 000 xx

    25. Smish on July 28th, 2007 8:18 pm

      I had my aol opened then opened my IE and could get in that way.Now I just checked scaredmonkeys.net thru aol and I got in and got to read the page I left off at(most graphics not showing up in aol)but couldn’t go to the next page in the thread.From what I have seen,sooooo nice in the new monkey cage.Great job you all.

    26. Elaine on July 28th, 2007 8:55 pm

      Hello Monkeys! I am on AOL as well, and cannot get in. Tried different browsers, to no avail.Oh well, maybe tommorow.

    27. Sam on July 28th, 2007 8:58 pm

      We’re transitioning our site. Please try us again in a few hours rest of page is blank.
      Deleted history and cookies both in AOL as well as Internet explorer.Ok, Next I will take it out of my bookmarks after I get rid of cookies and History again. Or may just wait until tomorrow.

      SM Sam

      Klaas … the computer geek husband of a good friend deleted my “cookies” and I did not have the site bookmarked. I receive the following message when I attempt to access:

      We’re transitioning our site. Please try us again in a few hours.

      Klaas … make sure Ducky has lots of fresh water and … he only eats the best poultry feed sold at Buckerfields. Do not leave him in the pen overnight. You have to bring him into the house … perferably a special spot in your bedroom .. or he will quack all night long. He gets very lonely.

      Hey … the passport deadline has been extended for entry to the USA. Yet … this Canadian is being denied entry to the Monkey Cage. Hmmm

      Not a clue what you are talking about. I may try to lure my friend’s husband back with the promise of some left-over Chinese Food from last night.

      <p>Hi Klassend,</p>
      <p>The forum looks great!!<br />
      I tried to register but it said someone else had my name. Help please.</p>

      SERENITY – check your email. You had already registered about a year ago. I just sent you a temporary password. See if you can get in now (klaasend)

    32. serenity on July 28th, 2007 10:22 pm

      I tried to sign up several times. The last time I tried you asked me to wait until the new site came up. I think maybe I was able to get in a long time ago, but since I did not post often enough I was deleted.

      in the forum a little bit
      earlier in the day, it looks
      great, fresh, very colorful,
      and new.

      So far, I LIKE!

    34. Robert on July 29th, 2007 4:13 am

      Hello SM! Good morning.

      Am I the first one to see this?

      The new Vertigo Blue Blog-theme looks cool! Somewhat more sharp and edgy than the old one.

      Congrats with your new looks!

    35. Richard on July 29th, 2007 5:41 am

      Well, there is certainly a lot to explore here. I’m making this introductory post just to see if it works. Maybe the answer to the problem of old and new cookies is to wipe everyone off the list and force everyone to re-register?

      But I hope not!

      Anyway, it’s looking impressive … let’s not be scared, monkeys!

    36. EasyWriter on July 29th, 2007 8:46 am

      Still doesn’t work for me. What’s going on in there? Anything new?

    37. Dayhiker on July 29th, 2007 8:48 am

      Great job on the new front page Red and Dugga! It is much easier to find a topic and read now. Great look too, very slick!

    38. Kat_Gram :) on July 29th, 2007 9:40 am

      Hooray, I am getting a password sent as my old one doesn’t work. Looking good. Just need to get my passport stamped and I am in the jungle.

    39. Houston on July 29th, 2007 10:58 am

      Well Good luck SM, I hope you do better than e-bay….everytime e-bay changes the format for sailboats it jams and in a few days they are back to the old one….but I suppose when you are doing things on the Web there is always trial and error….my three places to go on the web is Foxnews, e-bay and SM….so keep it coming.

    40. SunFreak2 on July 29th, 2007 11:40 am

      Still not working for me today either. I talked with AOL techies yesterday and they couldn’t get there either thru AOL or IE7. They said it was a server issue on SM end.

    41. Elaine on July 29th, 2007 2:51 pm

      Same here SunFreak2, I can’t get there either.

    42. sislittle on October 18th, 2008 7:13 pm

      I would like to join the blogs at the site,but I can only find the login link. I want to register. If anyon has some extra time will you send me the link for registering.

      You all have posted my wifes private facebook on sm.This not a right of yours and Kermit,I am going to the FBI in the morning to complain about you and Klass.

      How long does it take for an administrator to review and accept an application for registration to scared monkeys?

      It’s been over a year and I still haven’t received either an acceptance OR a denial, so I re-registered 3 weeks ago, and still nothing.

      What’s the basis for acceptance? Who the heck is in charge here?
      _____________________________
      SM: We really haven’t been accepting new members into the forum except when they take the time to email or do what you just did. So since you went out of your way, I did just approve you. You should be able to log into the forum now. Sorry it took a year :-) (klaasend)
