Scientists say that a star goes super nova in our galaxy roughly every 26 years. They can see how many have gone super nova by the remnants left. They have counted the past super novas and have found there have been approximately 250 in the life of our galaxy. 26 years x 250 = 6,500 years - This is the approximate age of the Earth as written in the Bible.

PostSubject: Linking Up Via Yuku Profiles   08/03/17, 09:57 pm

I want to discuss the Yuku profiles.

Even if one isn't active over on Yuku anymore, the Yuku profiles are a great way of advertising our sites even if we are on a different system.  They are also a great way of interacting with friends in a similar way that Facebook and Twitter are.

These last few weeks I have been posting on boards on Runboard, Proboards, Yuku and Forumotion.  Almost 100% of people that I am now in touch with again still have Yuku profiles even if they don't use them anymore being as how they have moved boards off of Yuku.

Why are people abandoning their profiles simply because they no longer want to own a board there?

I use my Yuku profile to add links to this board and to "Buzz" links to posts here and to my blog.  As I do that, everyone that is linked with me gets notification in their "Friends Feed".  Just as they do when I post the same links on Facebook and Twitter.

There are two problems now.......

1)  Not everyone is on the new style profiles which are far more interactive than the old style and old and new can't interact with each other.

2)  Those that no longer own boards on Yuku or post on Yuku have totally abandoned their profiles which means that no one is now keeping up with each other's activity.

This is why we have all lost touch with each other over the years.

Solutions........

1)  Those that have old style profiles could either switch to the new style or if they don't want to switch they could create a new, new style profile to interact with old and new friends. 

If they didn't want to be a supporter to have a new username attached to their present account they could create it with a different email address and then be logged in to different usernames with different browsers.

2)  Start visiting your profile again on a daily basis.  Link up with friends old and new.  Use your profile to add links to wherever you want people to follow you.

Have your shoutbox and buzz box (What I've Been Up to) open for all to view and leave shouts and read your buzzes.

Fill your html boxes up with interesting bits/links leading back to your board whichever system you are on.

I personally think we should make use of Yuku if we can.  We may not like the system for owning a board there but that doesn't mean to say we have to abandon the profiles.

There is absolutely nothing to say that one has to own a board to own a profile.  There is also nothing to say that one can't put external links on their profiles.

If you think about it and agree with me, add the link to your Yuku profile in here so that we can make a start linking up and making use of the profiles once again.  If you don't already own a Yuku profile register for one HERE

I have been meaning to update a few things on my Yuku profile but never got around to it.
Now I do like the new style profile a lot better then the old .. but .. we still can't delete html boxes and it's annoying me big time. Trying to move a html box does not stick either.

Such a shame really that they never fixed all those issues with the profiles and I honestly think this is why a lot of people abandoned theirs Sandy!

Yes we can delete the boxes.  We just can't delete them anymore from the front page.

To delete a box - Apps - Application Settings - Html Boxes

You then delete the boxes on that page by clicking on the rubbish bin beside the box you want to delete.

I also have no problem at all moving boxes.  I do it on a weekly basis.  You have to drag it to where you want, move it up and down a fraction until a blank box appears and drop it there.

Moving the boxes have always been fiddly to get it to drop in the right place ever since the profiles were built.

Sandy I'm sorry to say but none of that works on my profile and has not worked in a long time!
I've deleted html boxes and they are all back again the next time I log in.

Removing a html block from the profile does not work either as they come straight back again when you return. This is a known bug that never got fixed either.

Don't get me wrong, I do like the new profiles but all the bugs never got fixed. Such a shame really and I just deleted a few html boxes and see they are back again. Then I went and removed 3 from my profile page and they too are back again. I know I can just edit those html boxes, but still.

It comes straight back again when you try to delete it from the front page, but not by deleting it in the page that you create new blocks in.  As I explained above, you must go into that html page and click the rubbish bin to delete the box.

Go and try it now Martha.  I promise you they stay gone.

Also what we are calling bugs on those profiles aren't actually bugs at all.  They are features that were deliberately removed in Ceco's time.

Oh yes I agree with the "bugs" being features that where either removed or corrupted in some way.

Woohoo I actually managed to delete 3 thml boxes!!

I will get to work on my Yuku profile soon and will change it all around and see how many will notice lol.
