“There are no uninteresting things, only uninterested people.” ―
Numerous Parcel deliveries were due today, and seeing as I have become the family post office I needed to stay at home.
I was awake soon after half-past five and after writing up my journal , attending to e-mails and making comments on the blogs of others, (the ones I didn’t have time to do yesterday) and doing the domestic chores I became bored, but not for long!
I took a look at the world clock, and I thought about all the bloggers I correspond with. I took note of the different times around the world, and after working out who would be awake and who would be asleep, I began to wonder if they too need to get up in the middle of the night for a pee! Strange how these random thoughts just pop into my head!
I got back in touch with WordPress this morning, but there’s only so much one can say about the pingback problem – “Hello again, my pingbacks are continuing to fail! ” So I try to add a little extra, you know the kind of thing, polite but forthright. but designed to irritate. Here is a copy of the reply from WordPress. For those not familiar with Communicating with WordPress, my original questions are highlighted.
thank you for your message.
Me – I am intent on keeping WordPress in the loop as previously directed but I too would like to be kept in the loop. Just what is being done to fix this problem?
Yesterday four more of my pingbacks failed
So, is WordPress any closer to finding the ‘Missing Link’? There must be something that links together those of us who are having difficulty with creating pingbacks. Surely by now you have enough evidence to piece together a picture of what is happening.
Can I anticipate an end to this farce in the near future?
I understand the pingback issue is frustrating. We are still investigating what is causing the failed pingbacks. Unfortunately some issues are harder to troubleshoot and it can take some time to find out what exactly is causing the issue.
Me – Does WordPress have a virus?
We don’t have a virus on our platform.
Me – Is a public announcement on WP’s failures going to be made soon?
Thanks for the suggestion and feedback. We will consider the announcement option once we know more what is causing the issue.
I know that it is annoying to see the pingbacks fail. At the same time I want to assure you that we are investigating why this is happening and we want the issue to be fixed as much as you do.
Please let us know if you have any more questions.
Ivan, Happiness Engineer
In order to keep this word sparring match going I need to think up more questions ? Any ideas?
My pingbacks today are Match from the Ragtag Community, Forthright from Fandango and back to Communication on GC and my Weekly Prompts site.
My pingbacks failed!
