Testing: Please Reply to this Post



We’re always trying to find the best ways to keep the blog safe yet keep it easily accessible to everyone else.

The spam program we were using, the designers decided not to support it anymore.  Though it had worked great it also made commenting more difficult.

Tried another – we won’t even go there.

The one we’re trying now could possible work to keep the spam out yet not annoy everyone else in the process – this is a good thing!

*crosses fingers*

I’m asking for those who do read and comment on the blog to do a favor for me.

First – clear your cookies/caches etc… this will get rid of previous versions of the blog and make it clean so to speak.

Second – reply to this post. I’ve added back the reply via twitter, facebook, wordpress or email. (I’m not sure where it had gone but hey it’s back!)

If you are one of those who was able to keep their registration – sign in that way and reply.   You use twitter and follow the link from twitter – reply using that.  If you don’t have twitter but do have facebook – try it with that.  You’re a wordpress user – please comment via wordpress.  If you don’t have any – please use the email.

We’re trying to see what catches in the spam what doesn’t.  I’ll be answering each comment to see what’s going through and what isn’t.  Though be patient with us this may take a while.  If you don’t get an answer and never see your comment within 24 hours – email us at (sylumclan@yahoo.com).

Third – cross your fingers, send good thoughts, light a candle and send a prayer to St. Isidore of Seville Patron Saint of Computers.

    I really hope this works as I have been unable to comment on the last few Coffee house posts. 🙁

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      And it worked! Was this through wordpress? It look like it just want to make sure…

      And sorry you haven’t been able to comment – hence the reason we’re trying to figure this out.

      Thanks for being patient

      • wackyninja says:

        Yes, this is through WP. I knew you would all figure something out eventually 🙂 The only other issue is that it takes time for the site to load.

        Congrats on the update, though.

        • Nicolaus Meridius says:

          That was do to some of the spam attacks. Hopefully now it will get better. Though today the servers are probably going OMG what is all the traffic.

  2. Kimberley says:

    Keeping my fingers crossed for you! 🙂

  3. William Brandt says:

    Hello! Hopefully things start going better for you soon on all this! I really appreciate and want to thank you for all the hard work that you and the other’s put into everything. 🙂

  4. Lorelei says:

    Fingers crossed!

  5. I cleared the cookies; they were delicious. 😛 Hopefully everything works out!

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      This one had been caught but it popped up in my admin folder so I can clear it – which the problem with the last one – it wouldn’t let me say – hey this isn’t spam 😀

      So you’re good!

      Glad the cookies were good 😀

  6. I followed the steps, no problem so far.


  7. zenolady says:

    Hope this works…

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      Yours did get caught but it could’ve been from first time posting type of thing…

      Though I was able to send through so we’re doing good here!

  8. Marchann says:

    I came through from my email. Still read and re-read most of the stories. They are my go to when I just want to sit and read.

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      Comment came through with no problems.

      I love to hear even after all these years people still enjoy reading Sylum 😀

    Hi, Replying as asked.

  14. btenbrinck says:

    Hey there, replying via WP. One question: where can I find Sylum on FB? Never new there was a page Hope everyting is in working order for you. Thank you for always being there to correct wrongs TVwriters come up with 🙂

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      Sylum Clan actually isn’t on Facebook. I just know that sometimes people do use their Facebook pages a lot and so I made sure they could sign in via Facebook if they wanted.

      Thanks. We’re working on a new motto.

  15. isisathena says:

    I’ve posted in the past though I tend to stalk and not respond, but then I don’t post through an account either (or at least I don’t sign into one purposefully). Hopefully this works though. Good luck with your computer issues, sometimes modern technology sucks. Now back to my job updating a website.

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      It worked!

      There are days technology makes it harder when it should be easier.

      Thanks for taking time to reply.

  16. Penelope Garcia says:

    Reporting in! This one is via e-mail.

  17. Eric Delko says:

    I am really hoping this works. I like being able to comment on all the good things we talk about.

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      There you are! Yes it does seem to work now.

      Thank you for pointing it out to me. The spam blocker we had was blocking legit stuff and not letting us know.
