Email Redux

Posted May 19, 2020 3:07PM UTC

So I shouldn't have been so sanguine about the restoration of our email service. I got on the phone with our provider this morning, and we believe it's really, honestly fixed this time.

Not being able to send mail leads to many failures you might not connect to it: When you send a message to another member, the site tries to email them to let them know about it. When you reset your password, it tries to email you for confirmation. Etc. If you've been getting odd errors the last couple of days, try again now and let us know if you're still running into dead ends.

Stay safe, have a great week!

Email Outage

Posted May 16, 2020 4:48PM UTC

Our email delivery provider suffered a data breach and locked us out of our account until we changed our password. We should be OK now. I'm sorry for any mail that failed to send between the time they locked us out last night and when I got their message this morning.

"Shandi"

Posted May 11, 2020 10:17PM UTC

We've been plagued the last few days by spammers creating fake accounts with variations on the name "Shandi". On the bright side, they haven't bothered to see what our site is about – they're using their standard ploy of posing as young women, so they're unlikely to take anyone in here. πŸ˜„

Still, it never hurts to remind everyone to be careful about your personal information, including your email address. Don't share anything with anyone unless you're as sure as you can be about them.

Stay safe,
Jeff

Checking In

Posted Apr 16, 2020 10:39PM UTC

Paul has started a thread where you can share how things are going with you during the COVID shutdown:

https://talk.oldergay.men/t/let-s-check-in-covid-19/11068

One silver lining in this ordeal is that we can be here to support and check in on one another. I hope you're all still staying safe and getting what you need. Let's keep each other company until we can crawl out of our caves again.

Enjoy, stay safe,

Frightening Times

Posted Mar 19, 2020 2:44PM UTC

I hope everyone's following precautions, staying safe, and lending a hand where you can. I opened a topic on our discussion forum for anyone who wants to share news (news, not rumors; please be responsible), seek advice, or just talk to someone about how things are going.

I'm sure it's obvious, but everything on our events page should be considered tentative pending further updates. In particular, I don't imagine the cruises will be happening. We've reached out to the organizers and will take them down if we get confirmation. I hope we can all get together again soon, but let's do what we need to do in the meantime to make sure we're still here when the time comes.

Stay strong, hang in there,
Jeff

Supporting The Site

Posted Mar 14, 2020 10:01PM UTC

Patreon has approved our account, so you if you'd like to support OlderGay.Men, you can now go to:

https://www.patreon.com/OlderGay/

I've created three membership levels and will work to delineate them further, but I appreciate your patience as I work out the kinks in integrating Patreon to our site and providing rewards to those of you who can afford to contribute. ☺️ Our new setup here is significantly more expensive than what sfpix.net required, so I'm grateful to anyone who can chip in and keep us going for everyone in the older gay community.

As an aside for what's on everyone's minds: Our hearts go out to everyone affected by COVID-19, which now includes almost everyone in the world. For those of us who are older or who have the luck to live with someone older, it's especially worrisome – I fret and obsess each time I go to the grocery store that...

Comments On Every Page

Posted Mar 13, 2020 1:47AM UTC

At the bottom of every page on the site, you'll now find comments other members have posted about the page, or a link to start a discussion if no one has commented yet.

I'm imagining people using this to:

  • Share more information about upcoming events
  • Give reviews or updates about Older Gay places
  • Find out more about specific pictures
  • Share their enthusiasm for stories they love
  • And more

I hope this will keep the site lively and up-to-date. I only ask this, as always: Please, please remember to be kind. Especially with any comments you post under another member's profile page. We'll keep an eye on how things are going, and we'll remove any nastiness. Be good to one another, and make our job easy. πŸ™‚

Enjoy; let us know if you run into any problems,
Jeff

Seeing only guys with profile pictures

Posted Mar 09, 2020 9:38PM UTC

On the People page, you can now click a link to only show people with profile pictures. Let us know if you see any problems with it.

Enjoy,
Jeff

Older men are at greater risk of serious complications from COVID-19. Please take care of yourselves and those you love.
