I used to like what we called "normal"... not so sure, anymore.

I received an eMail today from WU. Maybe they sorted their troubles.

Cheers,
Reinhard

They were still rejecting some of my webcam uploads yesterday, but most of them went through successfully. They are definitely making progress.

Yes, that it what I think, too.

Thanks to Weatheraardvark for the link and the flasher joke. Lol … And thanks to everyone for their kind and considerate contributions. Hopefully WU has it all sorted and we can get back to our beloved humdrum routines.

Question: When did they add a discussion thread at the bottom of the personal WS page? I just noticed it today. Nice! No one has used it on my PWS yet. Well, except me, about 5 minutes ago. Has anyone else seen any activity from J.Q. Public, yet?

Dear Herb and WeatherCat faithful,

Hey, nice to have you posting once more!  :)  I hadn't seen your signature in a while and was wondering what you were up to!

Question: When did they add a discussion thread at the bottom of the personal WS page? I just noticed it today. Nice! No one has used it on my PWS yet. Well, except me, about 5 minutes ago. Has anyone else seen any activity from J.Q. Public, yet?

Well, I hadn't noticed it either.  However there is a very tiny name at the bottom right of your page: Disqus

https://disqus.com/

These are folks supplying the software that implements the discussion feature of Weather Underground.  I'm having a hard time imagining how conversations like this would work.  Unless a particular weather station generated some sort of communal interest, it seems more reasonable to have a discussion about the weather in a particular location and include all the nearby weather stations in one common thread.

Does anybody see some discussion activity on their particular WU station page?

Another curious mind would like to know!

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

Nice to see you back on the forum Herb!

0 comments on my page. Can't imagine why anyone would comment and agree with Edouard on this new feature.
