TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES

I am experiencing some technical difficulties with my 'Follower's List', for a start some of the avatars are appearing twice... but sadly the avatars for K9, /t. , Little Motivator, Sarah Sofia, Phos and laughingwolf, both on my main page and in my followers list in Dashboard have disappeared.

I have no idea how this has happened, I have been in touch with both Blogger and Google and they have been absolutely no use whatsoever.
I have no idea how to put this right so I apologise to all of those people whose friendly faces are missing. ♥

Special Update: All technical problems have been fixed, worked out some of it for myself but special thanks to Boney and my son Andrew...please read comment 25 from me for more details and thanks. ♥

Can't you just thump the side of the computer?

dianne said...

I dont know about thumping it J Cosmo my friend but it is very annoying when you can't get any solutions or answers from the people at Blogger and Google so I have given up, wasted too much time already trying to get answers. :( ♥

I'm still here... Mysterious things often happen on Blogger...

dianne said...

Thanks Phossy dear,thank goodness you are still here, you are still on my list but your avatar has gone missing which makes me sad and mine has disappeared from every blog that I follow...I don't understand why or how I can fix it? ♡

foam said...

but i see them all. they are not missing.

foam said...

plus you avatar is still there on my follower's list.
hmmmmmm ....

dianne said...

Thanks Foamy dear, something very strange is happening, when I look at the followers lists my avatar is not there, and those friends I have mentioned are missing from my blog followers list...for some unexplicable reason I lost photos from my sidebar as well last night, it must be my computer and I have no idea why it is happening... ♡

Such is life with computers. They have minds of their own and will probably take over the world one day.

dianne said...

Yes Lamby dear, they do have minds of their own, I have managed to fix one problem, that is I can now see my avatar on our friends follower's lists but now I can't see your avatar here with your comment...its a conspiracy!!
What is happening I wonder? ♡

foam said...

well, that's strange ..
your photos have always been there for me.
but you know ..
similar stuff has happened to me
when my computer has refused to download everything.
have you restarted your computer?

dianne said...

Yes Foamy dear I have restarted it but I'm about to try that again...thanks for your help. ♡

dianne said...

No Foamy dear that didnt work either, can you see Lil Lamb's picture avatar up there where she left her comment? Because I cant, its just a blank square. :( ♡

foam said...

yes, i can see it.
that's happened to me before ..
eventually it just righted itself out on it's own.

dianne said...

Thanks dear Foamy , I hope it does right itself, maybe when I turn the computer off tonight things will be better in the morning...I will just have to be patient.
It is a little weird though, I went over to chickory and I can't the picture of the jewelweed that she posted yesterday nor can I see the painting of Dusty? :( ♡

/t. said...

maybe
you've gone
blind in one eye

or maybe blogger is just being goofy

again, and as usual :)

don't sweat it <3

Maybe I have /t. dear,
nothing would surprise me at the moment...

I fixed my avatar problem, I can now see it at the other blogs and I hoped that overnight all of the problems would disappear but they havent, I still can't see images or avatars that everyone else can see...maybe it is blogger but I feel it something that I have messed up, thanks for your comment. ♡

dianne said...

Boney,why are you trying to remove your avatar from my followers list, don't you want to follow my blog any more?
Thank you for all the info you have sent me and your comments here I will muddle through and try to figure out what I have messed up, I managed to fix my avatar problem and now see it at other blogs, but avatars are missing from my followers list still, I cant open images and pictures are missing...thanks for your help, I sent you an e-mail I hope you will read it.

dianne said...

Yes maybe they will Puggles my sweet, your avatar is still there in my followers list and has shown up here with your comment...I hope I can get all of the pics to come back. ♡

dianne said...

Thank you all for your words of encouragement, especially Foamy and Boney.
Thank you Boney for taking the time to write these comments and also e-mail we with the information and step-by-step pictures to help me solve my avatar problem, I do appreciate you taking the time away from your painting...I guess that is what 'friendship' is all about.

I have wasted so much time today trying to figure out what I have done, my son Andrew worked it out, somehow I have messed up my blog settings which prevented me from receiving and viewing some images, thanks Andy. x

Now, thankfully I can see all of your lovely avatars and faces and see what you have posted at your blogs... :) ♡

Pleased you liked the award Sarah dear, it is a nice one.

I wasted most of last night and a good part of today trying to figure out what I had done to my blog...I was actually trying to change the picture in my avatar and somehow I messed things up.

Thankfully Boney was kind enough to come to my assistance when I asked, but I did work out what I had done with the avatar and Andrew figured out how I had messed up the other stuff.
Sometimes its better just to leave things as they are.

I dont know about the blogs where you cannot leave comments, that is a choice the blog owner can make when they post something.

I will take a look at your link, I hope its funny, I surely need something to make me laugh at the moment. xo ♡
