Open Salon is currently functioning worse than I've seen it in about 2 1/2 years of blogging here.
No one I know is getting e-mail notification of comments or PM's.
PM accounts are difficult to access, but this has been true for quite a while. It always takes multiple tries.
Commenting is taking forever, so much so that people all over OS are double and triple commenting because they don't think the comment posted when they hit the Post button the first time.
I've had it. At least until Open Salon starts working, I'm moving over to Our Salon.
You can find me at http://oursalon.ning.com/profile/koshersalaami
If you don't have an account there, I'd suggest you get one. Our Salon consists almost entirely of current and former Open Salon bloggers.
For a while, I've been double-posting. For the time being, instead of double-posting I'm going to post there but post the link to my Our Salon posts here. I don't want to receive comments here because I won't be notified when I get them and I don't have time to keep checking my posts to see what arrived.
Some of us get comments on older posts, particularly recent posts that are one or two back. Are we supposed to check our old posts in addition to our current post to see if new comments arrived? In addition to checking a PM account we have trouble accessing in the first place?
Until I get notifications, I don't want to receive communications here. I will not close comments on my links because if I do I won't know if the notification feature has returned.
I will check PM's for the rest of today. If you want to communicate with me but have a reason for not wanting to use Our Salon to do so, PM me your e-mail address and I'll e-mail you.
I would suggest you follow suit, particularly if you already have an account over there.
I'm not suggesting cutting ties with Open Salon. What I'm suggesting is more akin to staying at a hotel when the power and water in your house gets knocked out by a storm. This hotel, however, is free.

- Male, Jewish, in my fifties, married with kids (well, at this point I guess that should be "kid"). Thanks to Lezlie for avatar artwork - sort of a translation of my screen name. "Salaam" is peace in Arabic, hence the peace sign. (No, my name doesn't mean "hunk of meat" and yes, the pun is intentional.)
