Default What in the Writer's Beat happened to...


...the Writer's Beat Profiles?

No, not the forum.writersbeat profiles, the writersbeat profiles?

Check this out
http://www.writersbeat.com/z/SynonymousWords/

They used to have myspace/facebook-ish type profiles?

Strange...

So I was wondering whatever happened to it all. Is it dead? To be deleted? To be revived? To be forgotten? Not to be used anymore? (assuming why the access is not given)

A little puzzling...

I don't know what you are talking about SW, and when I clicked your link, it took me to a standard WB log in screen.

Really? I get a blue profile page with a place for your picture and other information.

EDIT: Although, when I insert my username in place of SW's, I get an 'invalid usage' message. I wonder if it works for some users and not others? Odd.

EDIT2: Now I get the screen, but not the details that SW has.

Q - are you sure?

Try again...

Dev - that's right... but you should have one too. Just you can't really edit it... I don't think.

Hmm. Maybe it should be revived? Looks fun.

Myspace for the oldies and writers. Hah!

@SW: Right, I see it now. Must say this is all new to me.

@Devon: where are you entering your name? The only place I see to do that is the login/password boxes on the upper right-hand side of the screen. When I did that, I got a different message:
In order to accept POST request originating from this domain, the admin must add this domain to the whitelist.
All very strange.

What crappy jargon... pardon the pun.

(wait, there WAS a pun, no, from me?)

I'm confused. Oh well. But the point is, you have to log in separately, because it's using writersbeat.com and not forums.writersbeat.com.

Weird, but nice, eh?

Hmm.

That IS weird. I tried .../z/qwands and .../z/queenofwands but it says NO USER. Weird.

I tried .../z/Devon, but it was empty and just came up with NEIGHBOURING PROFILES.

Weird. Very weird...

I've actually managed to see a few for older members and I suspect this is an ancient thing that was scrapped a long time ago. How on earth did you find it, SW?

I see you found it, then!

Yeah, I just went to the link that SW provided, got rid of his /z/SynonymousWords and typed in my /z/Devon. I didn't get much, though. Not what's there for the other members. Meh.

It does look pretty cool. It even lists the number of thank yous you'd gotten and the number of awards. Hmm . . .

Well, I don't even exist, which is news to me. As for page itself, I'm not a fan of Facebook and such myself so don't really see the attraction. But I am still curious to know how SW found this.

Haha...

Actually, I was poking about in some old threads. Very old threads. They had a competition on pictures in your profiles. I thought hey, that's strange... you can only have one, can't you? Well, then I found these.

It works for Daniel's, Icarus, etc.

For me, too...

SW, you're a forum archeologist! What stratum was this old thread in?

Hmm.

Okay, dug up (no pun intended... really!) some old stuff.

Apparently, Daniel made it from Zoints. Uh-huh. Then they moved it to be hosted on here, which is why the .../z/... is in place, I suppose.

There are a few posts referring to this, but this is the closest to the profiles being hosted on HERE and not the ZOINTS website.

http://forums.writersbeat.com/showth...hlight=profile

Hmm...

Oh, here's another thing...

Apparently Mridula's old username was cuteangel.

Therefore, her old username was used for the .../z/... and not her current one.

I keep finding new things.

Well, if you try to log in from that site, because you have to log in separately (as I said, since it's hosted on writersbeat.com and not forums.writersbeat.com), then this message pops up:

In order to accept POST request originating from this domain, the admin must add this domain to the whitelist.

Well, as I said, this is an old thing and hasn't been in action for at least a year. Strange that it seems to have created a profile for you, but there you go. It's obviously just your splendiforousness that has managed it. As for Mrids, that was her username when I joined. She changed it. Understandable really. Lol.
