Kay it has been a hit and miss for me at times, as Sandy knows lol.

I also had a few problems earlier and found that FF had updated again so after waiting for a bit all worked again; sometimes it takes a few minutes for things to work after an update too.

I don't know how you all keep working up the enthusiasm to play around with new systems and suchlike. Keep starting again from scratch doesn't appeal to me at all. I'm too old, lazy and crotchety to bother.

Unfortunately Wendy, this time we have no choice.  Yuku is about to go phutt.  Mind you, Martha and I do love the challenge of learning a new system.

Whisper .....I agree with you......It might take me a year or so to learn how to get on the Support pages here......hahaha.  When I started with Yuku (EZboard) I hardly knew how to operate a computer......seems like that's starting all over again.....Over "yonder" I had Zona to teach me the skin making challenges...and I slowly progressed over the years with Zan and Martha joining in for tech help.  I love making those skins at Yuku with my PSP8 program.....so easy to upload images and put them in place.....oh well, maybe I will live long enough to learn this one......

Ah Kay you need to make sure you are logging in with the right email address. The only drawback I find with this system is that each board is a local one; and as such we as the board owners can only have 1 board under 1 email address.
Did you get the confirmation email from them when you first created the board? Check the right email address there too.


Also the email address you used for the singing up as a member can not be used to sign up for a new board. This I read is to stop spamming and/or hacking etc.

I was lucky in that I still had some old email acc floating around lol so I've used those to set up the test board.

Wendy for me half the fun of being online is to figure out a new system hahahaha. It sure beats having to hear or read all the political crap and the tv is boring and riddled with ads every 3 minutes.

Plus sifting through codes and ideas is good for the good ol brain too Smile

You wont be able to log in until you have received an activation email and clicked to activate it.

Then you log in as Admin + Password.

We can delete our boards but you need to be logged in to delete it.

Have you checked your spam email to see if the activation email went in there.

If not is there a link on the page when you go to the board that says Re-send activation mail.

Try logging in as "Admin" again and then it should show a link to Re-send activation mail.

Sorry to be a nuisance ... just making another "quote" reply to see how it looks and to find a code if needed be.

Elaine not a fact for sure! But what we are saying is that the way Yuku has been going the last few months, there won't be anyone left there soon, as people are leaving in drones.
There seems to be a problem every week that causes so much upheaval it's not funny anymore.

The other problem I am foreseeing is that one day the servers just don't cope/work at all anymore and that our boards/data will just be lost! I hope I am proven wrong Wink but on the off chance I am not I decided to start this board just in case.

I did used to like cracking the nut Martha. My stubbornness made me persevere until I got something to work as I wanted it to. Nowadays I find all that stuff hard on the eyes and usually end up with a headache. I save my stubbornness and limited energy for things that are important to me now. If you still enjoy the challenge then it's fun so I can see why you do it.

I never liked the local accounts on Proboard. I could never see why they were necessary.

This is the way I see it Elaine.

1)  No one on staff seems to know how to fix bugs on Yuku.   Because of this many bugs are simply not being repaired at all.

2)  There are none of the original Yuku staff, except Chris, working there anymore.  When CG bought the system, they brought in their own techs. I don't think CG even have a designer anymore.   And for all we know it could even be Tapatalk techs now.

3)  We have now been moved to Tapatalk servers.  (is it a Yuku/Tapatalk partnership or have Tapatalk bought the system?)

4)  No new Yuku boards are allowed to be created.  All new boards will now be Freeforums.

5)  If you go over to http://support.freeforums.org/ - where Chris also administrates, you will see posts from people who's boards have been migrated to Freeforums.  Now I'm not saying they are Yuku boards, but it shows that other systems involved with Tapatalk are being migrated there.

6)  When we went from Ezboard to Yuku at first we could request a board migration.  Ezboard owners were promised that they would not be forced over to Yuku.  A few months in all Ezboards were compulsorily migrated to Ezboard.  Ezboard owners were waking up one morning to find their board moved.

I know this for a fact because as a helper at that time, I helped move some stubborn posts over manually from some of the old Ezboards.

What happened was they stopped repairing the Ezboard system until it was so run down that that they could force the migration.

We have already been told that we will be able to keep our Yuku boards as Yuku, but I strongly believe with no one knowing how to or bothering to repair the system we will one day soon be forced to migrate to Freeforums.

When a system suddenly forces any newly created board to be of another system, it's never long before there is a forced migration.

7)  Yuku members are already leaving by their droves and moving their boards to other parts of the web.  This new venture with Tapatalk is forcing even more away. 

Unfortunately Tapatalk now have involved themselves with so many systems that it's hard to find a system they aren't involved with.  At the moment this system (Forumotion) seems to be one of the few left that aren't.

I honestly believe that one day we will wake up to find our Yuku boards migrated.  First it will start with owners volunteering and then the rest one day will be forced over.

Local accounts make it a lot harder to get new members.  I much prefer a global account as Yuku is.

But then it has never been so much the Yuku boards that I like as the profiles and blogs.

Part of my enjoyment of Yuku was profile hopping.  Meeting new people and following their posts etc.  Unfortunately the profiles now have so many bugs in them and have had for years, (both old and new sytle).  And of course no one bothers with their profile anymore.  Most have their shoutboxes locked down along with their settings not allowing anything to show in their buzz box.

The vast majority of original Ezboard/Yuku members have gone.  The locking down of the profiles and boards started with the influx of MSN users.

Runboard is now a global system, in as much as you create a single account to log in with and you get a private page with a list of all the sites you have joined.  But you still have to join each site separately.  They also supply blogs too.

I checked out that Runboard the other day, and it is having page loading problems similar to Yuku.....but I do like the global system better also......think I'll check into it further.  Might be good to have several board systems........

Martha & Sandy, Thank you so much for the detailed explanation of the Yuku predicament. I've heard rumours about Yuku dying out but was suspicious that it was only a rumour. At this time I have only one community there that I visit a few times a week. My Yuku profile page is still more or less in tact, with just a couple of bugs that don't make any real difference.

Good Afternoon Folks! I've just registered here and created my profile.

I've read back through the thread...just to get a handle on the topics...and meet the others on board here!

Very disturbing to read that Yuku MAY be toast...does anyone know if that were to happen without warning...would our images on the Yuku Gallery be compromised? I'm thinking not because we save our images to our computers and then bring them to the Yuku Gallery...but any info/conjecture would be appreciated. I'm just wondering about it coz I remember my hubby complaining about MSN groups shuttering and losing images...but I know the way we posted images at MSN groups was different than we do in Yuku. Okay, now I'm rambling.

Thanks Martha for having this spot up and operating...I'm off to poke around here a bit more.

Hi Anne and welcome on board! Lovely to see you here too so make yourself at home and yell out if you need any help.
We are all still finding our way through this new maze lol

Well if Yuku where to go belly up then the Albums/Gallery with your images/pictures in would be gone too!

No idea how well it would fare IF we were to be migrated to Freeforums and I for one am not waiting to find out either. I am saving any images from my albums over there; especially the ones I did not keep or removed from my computer.
Over the years I had saved most of my images on Photobucket as well but they do have given me a lot of grief and quiet a few images just went missing on PB too.

So I have opened up an account with Fotki and paid for 2 years storage there so that I can re-save all my images there.

My suggestion is to save any images that are dear to you as a precaution!
