CF might know something about that. I believe they sometimes are in contact with one another.

Alternatively, he does have a Facebook account so if you have social media you could try adding him there. (I know he has an account because I used to be on his 'friends' list on there, for what that is worth). :lol:

Nothing more beyond this - viewtopic.php?f=13&t=420742&start=16#p9506663

I've PM'd him again, stressing the urgency of a fix.

Having to Refresh a few Times to get a Page to Load;

And With Due Caution Copying a Post Before You Press Submit,

Surely Doesn't Require as Much Patience As the Days of 14.4K Modems

And Downloading

or Uploading One Picture;

It's Still the Modern Age Here
Compared to the Stone Age There, Hehe...

i've Dealt With Issues on Both Facebook and WordPress
in the Last Several Years That Have Taken Massive Work Arounds

To Stay Productive, And Engaged in Flow; This Is Just A Couple of Extra

Dance Steps

(Key Strokes
And A Few
Extra Seconds)

To Get A Free Dance
And Song of Life Done...

i Pay 317 Dollars a Year For
WordPress And again there have
Dealt With Major Headaches Compared
to this Minor Annoyance; And When it happens

On Facebook, There Aren't Any Flesh and Blood
Humans to Talk to; So, Ya Create Your Own Work-Arounds or Go Away...

Yet Facebook Is Free to Use and So is the Wrong Planet; In Other Words,

It's Just A Gift...

Considering That
This is Really No
Inconvenience at all to me...

Yet of Course, i Have the Perspective
of the 'Old Days' and What Patience is...

The Best Part of This Site Now Is It's Been
Tidied Up by The Moderators and Is As Peaceful

As Ever
to Use

Without So
Much Purposeful Strife...

A Few Extra Key Strokes And a Few Extra Seconds
Is surely Worth it For the Free and Volunteered Gift

at
Least
to me...

Not Too Worried about the
Site going away; This was one
of Alex's Major 'Special Interests in Life'...

i Still Have my Matchbox Cars in a Box in
A Closet; They Roll Just Like They Did 60 Years

Ago, if
i Take
them out of the Box;

Train Set too; i Don't

Easily Let go of Special Interests...

Seriously Doubt He Will too; Yet Hey, It's Not

Likely This Is All He's Got Going on in His Life...

Just a Reminder for him to Check on the Special Interest in the Closet
Will Likely
Be Enough
to Eventually
Erase the "Ripple in the Pond"..:)

Maybe someone with the right skillset could create a gofundme type thing to get some cash for wrongplanet maintenance and/or updates? My EF are not really up to that kind of thing right now.
Or maybe a low end “donate by paypal” type thing?

Thanks aghogday for providing some perspective. :)
Yes, the errors are irritating - but we still get to use WP for free.

I don't know what I'd do without wp

It stops me from biting my nails

I personally enjoy crumbling web architecture as much as I do crumbling building architecture. It's romantic, and a melancholy reminder of our own inevitable degeneration.

On a long enough timeline the survival rate for everyone drops to zero.

I began to search. I came across one link that listed Alex Plank. The website was
30 famous autistic people you should know: Actors, musicians, singers and inventors with autism

The List included: Charles Darwin, Hans Christian Andersen, Benjamin Banneker, James Joyce, Sir Isaac Newton, Wolfgang Amadeus, Travis Meeks, Susan Boyle, James William Durbin, Gary Numan, Anthony Hopkins, Dan Aykroyd, Wentworth Miller, Hannah Gadsby, Alex Plank, Clay Marzo, Jessica-Jane Applegate, Tom Stoltman, Linus Söderström, Ritomo Miyata, Chris Packham, Elon Musk, Christine McGuinness, Melanie Sykes, Coby Bird, Kayla Cromer, Lizzy Clark, Mickey Rowe, Lal Anderson, Alexis Wineman.

It goes on to describe Alex as:
Alexander Plank is an American autism advocate, filmmaker and actor. He is known for his role on FX's television series The Bridge and acting on The Good Doctor. Physicians diagnosed Alex when he was nine, and he, in turn, founded the online community Wrong Planet to find others online.
