As always, feel free to ask me to add one that you have designed, if they don't fit within these listed.

Elizabeth S (esorenson) | 102 comments Are we not able to set our goals until Jan 1st? Or am I not accessing the challenges correctly? I'm kinda excited to start putting some numbers in. :)

It has been suggested in the Feedback group that access be given earlier, but this change has not happened.

You have to wait until 1 January.☻

Elizabeth S (esorenson) | 102 comments Thanks! Just wanted to make sure it wasn't a matter of user ignorance (i.e. my ignorance). :)

I am sorry that you are experiencing this problem.

Hmmm. I just tested the link, both by name and subject and cannot recreate a failure.

I don't know what else to try. Perhaps it is your internet connection?

I hope that you get it working, we'd love to have you join us!☺

Well, in this case it's just my problem; I thought it wasn't working for everyone. I'll try it later with my ipad and my smartphone and see if it works.

Thank you Louise-Lesley and Almeta!

Hi!I can view the challenge and all the participants, but it's the link in the description that doesn't work for me ("Authors on Goodreads").
I've tried also with my iPad, but it's not working :(

OH MY!!!

You are correct. It was not working. I was not understanding what link you were trying.

Fixed now.☻


message 16: by Elle (new)

Elle (louiselesley) That was the link I tried originally and it worked well for me?

Random.


message 17: by Stefania (new)

Stefania (stefychi) I just realised I didn't specify which link I was talking about, sorry! :)


message 18: by Stefania (new)

Stefania (stefychi) Now it's working and I've entered the challenge :)
