Why was it changed?

Why does it have 3 options which are practically identical? Whats the point? May as well remove the other 2 and go with option 1.

I'm looking into this, Timothy.

Hmmmm....

Let me look into it.  I knew the tech team was doing something, but wasn't aware that they were making changes to the number of books.

Folks,

I've split the streaming conversation here into its own thread, sorry for any confusion.

Folks,

A gentle reminder that political discussions are not allowed here.  Discussion of the new ruling on sales tax and its impact on authors as online vendors is fine (this impacts my quilting business, too, BTW) but you'll have to go to your local gin joint, or Facebook, to discuss the politics of it, thanks.

Folks,

right now, based on the way this thread is headed, I thinking I might lock it when I retire and let y'all cool off and reopen in the morning.  We don't have anyone here for the night shift.

OR, y'all could stop making personal comments about each other and just discuss issues.

Just sayin'.

EDIT:  Those of you who think discussion of these issues is not a worthwhile use of one's time, don't discuss.  This is not the thread for you.  Lots of other threads.

Folks,

I'm out of town on a family emergency.  Locking the thread.  Either one of the other mods will deal with it or I will many hours from now when I get to my hotel.  And frankly, given the number of reports, more stuff may happen.  The poo is hitting the fan.  We expect better, y'all.

OK, folks, I'm going to unlock the thread.  Sorry for the delay.

Warning:  We're going to try to keep this thread open.  People who cause trouble will *at a minimum* be banned from the thread.  You're writers--choose your words carefully and think of the big picture of what you are trying to accomplish instead of going for the cheap shot.

I didn't think I'd changed anything and that it had randomly disappeared, but I could be mistaken.

This morning I'm trying to get rid of that gap - I haven't made any changes, just pressed the save button - four times and there were different books missing each time and on the fifth go I got an error message:

Off to try a sixth save ..... OK so no error message this time but still books missing. Sigh.

The error message *may* have been because the tech team is working on it... 

My understanding is that to save on system overhead, the signature uses cached copies rather than calling the data each time from Amazon.

And, just to be clear--are we talking about the signature bar or the reading page?  Or both?

I enjoy like buttons. They're on a few other forums I frequent. However, I can understand how on a writers forum the mods would rather we write replies rather than like. I always tend to be more of a lurker than a poster, and a like button simply rewards my lurkishness. :D

This!  We're not Facebook.  :D ;D

Really? Maybe hit the refresh . . . 'cause I see all of mine.

BUT, I only see some of YOURS. :o

Yeah, I only see some of mine, too.  It was like that when I posted, too.  But I wasn't commenting on mine. :D

I do see all of yours this morning.

Y'all know moderators can see who voted "yes," right?

Just Kidding...we can't see who votes.
I'm never voting again, I swear it!

As my boss used to say, "The hit dog hollers."

Folks, I'm going to read through, but there seems to be a bit of politics creeping in here.  Let's keep away from that, OK?  Posts may be edited...

Welcome to KBoards!

Probably the best thing to do is to ask for recommendattikns from your fellow authors in the Writers' Café.  Start a thread there about what you are looking for in a cover designer.

Only if you're going to dance with it. Gene in fishnets for the win! I'd pay to see that.

A friendly reminder that this thread is not about DVD sales, thanks.  Though that would be a great discussion in Not Quite Kindle.

Wonder of wonders: my 1st refresh this morning and all is fine.

Still would make sense to have the tech folks check things, though, for both the US and UK tools.

But I only see about half your books.  :( :(

I don't believe any of the mod staff did it, Sandpiper--and they are the only ones who could have acccessed your signature.  Perhaps Photobucket made some changes?  The link does still go to Photobucket.

In the past, this has meant that Amazon changed something.  There's some kind of interface that allows us to pull data from Amazon for the reading pages.  If they change something on their end, it impacts us.  I'll pass the info on to Carrie to see if the tech team can determine anything.
