      Hi there, my recent post was recently moved to the Research forum and I am now unable to access it. Are you able to help me at all? (Sorry - I'm new here!)

        I believe the forum admin have sent you a message (possibly two) Are you able to access those? Your thread still exists but isn't visible as it needs approval before being put back on the forum.

        Certainly : ) If you want a particular kind of music or something, just specify in your opening post, so people are clear what counts.

      I seem to have difficulty logging in. I can login but only if I go through my email link confirm account. If I go directly to this site I cannot login. just a bit awkward.

        Sorry you're having problems. The best thing to do would be to start a thread and tag Administrator so he can look into your problem. Other people may be having the same issue. If you don't want to do that, you can use the Contact button at the bottom of the forum web page : )

Left leg went and limping now fine now right leg.Any advice other than sugar levels as I am keeping an eye on them please thank you. Angela T

        Hi,
        Sorry you're having problems with neuropathy. It must be horrible for you. None of us are medical people so can't give medical advice, but certainly keeping your blood sugar controlled can only help. I suggest you start a thread asking for other tips on dealing with it. There are a number of people here suffering from it so hopefully they will give you help and support.

        Wishing you all the best

        Azure

        The fault is still ongoing. It hasn't been sorted out yet and is causing a number of problems for quite a few members. Hopefully, it will be sorted out tomorrow, but with it being the weekend, I'm not sure when.

      Hi Azure, I have started getting the message "Your content can not be submitted. This is likely because your content is spam-like or contains inappropriate elements. Please change your content or try again later. If you still have problems, please contact an administrator.", even when PMing yourself. Can you please advise? TIA, Paul

        Hi,
        I think there may be a temporary issue with the forum software. I've 'freed' some detained posts myself this afternoon. Unfortunately, technical issues such as that aren't something I can deal with. The best thing to do is to email the forum using the Contact Us info at the bottom of the page, or write a message on Administrator's profile if you're unable to send him a PM.

      Hi Azure it says I'm not allowed to send a private message to a user -would you know why this is please?
      Thank you

        If it's a new member, then there's a minimum number of posts they have to make before being able to use the PM system. If not, then it's possible it's the settings they have. If you want to PM me the name of the person you're trying to PM, then I can see if I can find out why.
        Regards,

      can you do private chats on here azure??
      1. azure
        azure
        No, there's no chat facility. You can send private messages to any member. You may not get an immediate response as it depends when people are online, so if it's urgent it might be best to ask a question on the forum where everyone can see.

        Best wishes,

        Azure

      my account tells me 70percent what else do i do
      1. azure
        azure
        If it's saying you've on,y completed 70% of your profile, just click on the Profile button and add in more information if you want to eg your location. You don't have to do this if you don't want to. You can leave your Profile not fully completed and you'll still be able to take part in the forum just like everyone else.

        I hope that helps : )

        Regards,
