      I don't know what to call them-notices, updates-I used to get them several times a week. Now all of a sudden, about every 6 months, I get one. They have/had about 3 or 4 items of interest--new head-throat cancer members-and a couple of questions from friends and and head-throat patients. I thought everybody got those. Why would I think that I seemed to be on a different schedule?

      I do agree about the lack of editing abilities. When I do comment, I do get updates of other comments and likes-which I consider more of an acknowledgement than approval, but that is different than the updates-notices or whatever you call them.

      i know a good share of this is my fault, but why should I be remembering the exact name of questions or the names of nice people that I'm seldom in contact with, especially since I am used to another system? I do try to remember to move some of these to a file, so I have a direct link to WN.

      I'm pretty sure that search results are dictated by servers, and the routes taken. If the first choice is pretty busy, another route is used, and results can differ from the same search the day before. This spring, I wanted to buy some sponges. I entered what I thought was the name, and I got everything but- like 5 results for the same national company that sells creams, Amazon, and Target.

      WaPo had a story about Google being lousy for searches--and that's another variant-search engine and my MS software program. I complained- Tarpon Springs, FL. yellow rubber duck for avatar, NaturalBathBody, Several wonderful people sent me a link, and they talked how they had problems finding it. When my old phone went out, I lost the app, and I've done several app searches for my new phone-I can't find an app. I entered their ph # as a contact and make a call for purchases.

    Colby, I am sorry to hear about your diagnosis. I too was diagnosed at age 50 with stage IIIC colon cancer. I went through surgery and 6 months of chemo and now 22 months NED. Please don't hesitate with any questions or concerns we may be able to help you with.

    Colby, my profile is set to receive email notifications about activity on the site. I have not been receiving emails for some time. I believe lack of emails to individuals is having a detrimental effect on our site and reducing communication to a serious degree. Is there something I can do to help get our emails being sent again?

      ColbyR, thank you. I had no idea of who he is, but it’s sad news, of course. I’m glad you posted this.
