Issue with Linkedin

(Formerly the "Support, Feedback and Forum Announcements" forum.)
Please help us make Online Book Club even better! Please post suggestions, feedback and ideas for new features. Wild brainstorming and potentially 'crazy ideas' are super-strongly encouraged! :)

For new members (or old members who run into an issue), please make a post in this forum asking any questions you have about using the site and how it works that are not answered in the FAQ. Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

IMPORTANT: The Public Suggestion Box is NOT for discussing issues with the Review Team. If you are a reviewer and need help, please first check the Review Team Page and then if you still need help use the Review Team Support Forum.

For reference, there is a contact link on every page of the website.

Forum rules
Please do not discuss issues related to the Review Team in the Public Suggestion Box, as we prefer to deal with Review Team issues privately.

Issue with Linkedin

Post by B Creech »

I can't access Linkedin today, 1/30/20 to post a comment on the BOTD! I get a message from Linkedin saying it's not me, it's them. Is anyone else having trouble?

I can't access it either, so it is a glitch. Just do NOT confirm the Linkedin entry.

Yesterday I tried to look for the post on Scott's LinkedIn profile, but no luck.
Ciao :)

Hi. I'm having problems with the post for book on 14.06.2020. First I couldn't get access to linkedin at all. Now it is redirecting to the post from the previous day. I didn't confirm anything. But judging by the entries of some people they could access the post on linkedin. Is it only me who is having problems with linkedin?

It was a glitch. It happens.

This glitch happened on the 14th, and it has happened again today. Is it normal to have it happen twice in one week? Is it happening more frequently? Is there any way to make up for the LinkedIn points lost on those days that we can't access it? Thank you!

It happens now and then and should be fixed soon.

Please be patient and do NOT confirm the entry until it is fixed.
