The one about the Cactus flower? Still there at 8am today.

think it was called for Steragram about a cactus flower.

No,there was one about this site management just after the cactus blog

Ah, in that case I wonder if Hywel deleted it himself.

23 Jun, 2022

 

That's exactly what I thought.Shirley..he is a little impulsive at times.

Hywel has emailed me to say he is deleting his GoY account. He is still on Garden Friends and I know he is in contact with several members via FB.

Thank you Eileen...that explains it...what a pity..we will miss him.

I have sent Hywel a PM (at 19.45) asking him to 'hang on in there' as I think the unsolicited photos that appear are not being removed from the site quick enough for Hywel!

Admittedly, it does become frustrating, but it's easy enough to click on the next photo and ignore the one before.

I do hope we can get him to stay, he was one of the first GoY members to welcome me to the site back in 2010!

Shirley, apparently he has deleted his account....Eileen received an email from him....

23 Jun, 2022

 

Julia, he's still here at 20.10 this evening. I clicked on his avatar and his blogs/photos are there. It would normally say 'Account deleted' if he had ... I do hope he remains on here.

Oh!I remember Ange saying she found it difficult to delete her account....perhaps it isn't instant.I hope he stays too...there won't be many of the originals left.

I shall miss Hywel but I understand why he wants to leave. This site has deteriorated some since I joined years ago, i.e. many of us no longer receive notifications, or if they do it's only sometimes; unsolicited pictures take a while to be removed. I think a lot of the older members have left too, for whatever reason. Its such a shame because it's generally been an easy site to use and navigate.

I'm not leaving yet though!

Oh dear, I'm really sorry about this. It has been a life saver for me . What kind of unsolicited pictures are you talking about? If they are any kind of ad doesn't Adblocker filter them out? I don't get them.

24 Jun, 2022

 

I'm afraid that I don't even know what you mean about unsolicited photos. I only look at the questions, so perhaps that's why.
I do hope Hywel has second thoughts. I've always found this site to be friendly and so helpful and I've been a member since about 2008. I'm not clear about what Hywel's objection is.

There have been some photos, usually from Asian countries, advertising female escort services and the like! Not much left to the imagination.

24 Jun, 2022

 

there have been a few photos of girls, scantily clad but not pornographic. Obviously not what is expected on a garden forum. But Dave usually removes them within a day. He had computer issues and that was why it took so long.

I have no intention of leaving as I like the format. People have always come and gone, often because they have moved onto other hobbies/interests or general life gets in the way.

Also some prefer to use their phones so FB and Instagram become quicker/easier etc.

Never had those ads on here but I do get them in my email inbox. Very sorry that Hywel has left: he was a great contributor.

25 Jun, 2022

 

Oh those! Perhaps the pics are worse for men. If I see one occasionally it doesn't do a thing for me, I just dismiss them as sluts and pass on. It is irritation though. Have you noticed the list of new members these days? There is never a genuine one there any more, just what appear to be random collections of letters.

26 Jun, 2022

 

I've never received any of those photos...where is there a list of new members Stera?
I do realise everyone is very welcome,the more the merrier, but I've noticed they only ever ask questions....very rarely participate in other members blogs or photos. It would be interesting to have more interaction.

This is a wonderful garden site. Take it easy and relax. Why over react to the glitches that may pop up on GOY?

27 Jun, 2022

How do I say thanks?
