  • Ha! Well, refenestration, I'm not sure what that could have been, but I did ask the Sant...onnach... to bring a chained_bear for Christmas and he seems to have come through--I bet he could help.

  • Howdy, ruzuzu. I've heard from a certain someone that you have written "the best paragraph on the face of the Earth." Could you direct me to that particular comment? I'd so love to see it. :)

  • Thank you, Santa! She's perfect!

  • Yay! Our bearness is back!

  • Oh, hey, I just saw this page. Hi! Yes, I have a(nother) cub now so for the moment I won't be around as often... (Hey! Stop that cheering over there!) but the profile was indeed set to private as a default.

    It's delightful to know I've been missed, though. Thanks for the kind thoughts!

  • Not to worry. The Bear and her cub are alive and well. :-)

    November 24, 2009

  • Phewf! I'm glad its an addition to a family and not some sort of anti-wordnik protest.

  • you funny, john.

  • If someone, say for instance a bear, had accounts on both Wordie and Wordnik, their Wordnik settings took precedence. And since Wordnik accounts defaulted to private until recently, some née Wordie accounts got switched to private, unfortunately.

    I'll ping the bear via other channels and let her know. Though I think she's got her hands full at the moment, literally and figuratively :-)

  • *gasp*

    November 19, 2009

  • But the point is, her profile page seems not to exist, which indicates that something technical went wrong in the migration process.

  • wordies - the_bear just had a cub... She probably has (gasp) more pressing things to tend to just now. She'll join in. Give her time to adjust to all this -- change -- . All right, then?

  • I do hope the king of the johngle didn't forget to unchain her back at (you know ..) *subsides to a whisper*

  • Unactivated profiles from Wordie seem to show up as public (compare she), so it does look as though something has gone wrong...

    November 19, 2009

  • This is bad. Very bad. Can somebody prod her?

    November 19, 2009

  • 'This user either doesn't exist or doesn't have a public profile'

    Oh no! No! We haven't lost the _bear, surely?

    That would be un_.....
