For New Subscribers, You Should Know What To Do When You Get Annoyed By Pop-Ups.  There IS an answer.

If you are being asked to re-enter your email to confirm your subscription to, you might be a bit annoyed.  We don’t blame you, but there is an explanation.

  • You are accessing through a device that is different from the one you originally signed up on. Subscribing to puts a “cookie” on your device.  If you use a different device, no cookie, so you are viewed as a non-subscriber. If you re-enter name and password, you’ll be okay with the new device.
  • You have disabled cookies or cleared browser history on your device. Even iPads can accept or disable cookies. Turn cookies back on, and you’ll not have to re-enter again, or leave it disabled and realize you have to re-enter each time.  Your call.
  • You are trying to access our Subscriber-Only Content.  Instead of building a firewall that requires usernames and passwords, we elected a much simpler way of getting to our exclusive content: Just confirm your name and email.  You will have to do that each time you want to get to that information, which, by the way, is under the Community tab at the top.

We are also hearing complaints from people who say the email delivery of ends up in the spam folder.  What you should do is identify as an okay email sender.  Usually if you just click on the file in the spam folder, you will get a menu allowing to change to “Not Spam.”

Thanks everyone for your patience.

      Because we have some subscriber only content that we want to keep subscriber only. We don’t have a password or id, by the way.

      If you are referring to allowing cookies, go to your browser preferences or settings and look for something that looks like “Allow Cookies”.
