I'm new here & was so excited to join in the Speed Scrap last night, but when I tried to get in the chat room I got this message: "Members Only. Please login via the website." It wouldn't even take me back to the main page when I hit the back button, only kept giving me the same message. So I opened a new tab & tried again -- same message. Once again I opened a new tab & this time went to the forums where there was a place for me to "Log Out", so I must have been logged in.
I tried it again this afternoon & got the same message, still I was logged in. Am I doing something wrong? Is the chat room something that I have to pay extra to participate in? I'm signed up for the Survivor thing & want to get this straightened out before that starts on the 15th.
BTW, Harmony Star was so very helpful! She was posting the steps for the SS in the forum so i was able to do a LO & have posted it & received the super alpha -- thanks!
Thanks for any help you might be able to give me on what I need to do to chat.

Hi Ann! I'm so happy to see you here!

Were you logged into the forum? (The store and forum have separate log ins).

If you were then we will have to figure something else out...but rest assured, we will figure this out!

... and no you don't have to pay extra. :)
One thing I noticed is if you use the tab in the GS header the link isn't quite working, BUT if you use the link in the upper right hand corner of your screen that says chat room (in small black letters), the chat room window will pop up. Try that and see if that works.

Thank you Amy -- that does work! Now all I have to do is wait for another chat. Do you have some sort of calendar in here that shows when they are going to be happening?
You guys are so speedy in here. LOL

So glad you got in... I had the SAME issue the other night. The calendar is here: http://forums.gingerscraps.net/calendar.php

Found as a tiny link at the top when you go to the main forum (next to Private messages and such).

Although sometimes chats/SS come up quickly so watching the forum is a good way to catch these, too :)

I wonder if it's a browser/OS issue?

Wee I'm glad you can get in now Ann! Looking forward to survivor. I'm sure we'll have some Survivor chats or something. :)

I've never been able to get into the chat room either...not even with the old site. I'm not sure why. I think I have posted this before that I have tried with every computer/gadget I have in the house all have different OS and stuff. I'm stummped.

Yes, we are trying to figure it out.. the tab in the header will not work right now.
I'm considering getting a new chatroom program.... but the reason why I got the one we have was because it has image share right in the chat. So you can share images without even leaving the chatroom.

Until we get the header worked out... just use the CHAT ROOM in black letters under the header on the right.

Sorry gals :)

Now this one I dont get. That makes no sense to me.
Can you tell me what error you receive? And make sure you click on it from the small black letters Chat Room - under the header on the right.

Nevermind. Today, I can bring it up on my laptop, but the weird thing is I have always clicked on the black letters. I don't know, maybe the site upgrade helped me. I guess you'll be seeing me participate in some chats now when I can. Now in a way I kind of feel stupid.

Don't feel stupid! This sort of thing happens with gadgets. I'm just glad it works for you know.
I hope it works for Judy too. Have you tried it lately Judy? Chatting is very important lol.

For anyone else that is having trouble getting in, here is a little screen shot. The red arrow is pointing to the link that works to get in.

You can add me to the list of those who cannot access the chat room. I have tried both places and get this message.
