About Timothy Hicks
(Show Details...)
Bloggers Photo

My name is Timothy Hicks, and I've been writing for 5 years now, since I was 13. My main hobbies include writing, playing my piano, origami and bicycling.

I'm a bit OCD about some things and some would refer to me as a nervous pacer. I like to do outdoor activities, but at the same enjoy my alone time where I can sit and write. I'm a very avid reader and enjoy several different genres: horror, science-fiction, fantasy, and mysteries such as Sherlock Holmes.

I've had several different jobs including shakerboarder, pizza-make and cotton candy maker-and-distributor.

I like to think of myself as someone that can fit into almost any crowd and I always try to stay on the bright side of things. I swear very little and hardly ever get mad at people. I believe spreading smiles is a much better practice than sharing negativity...

Glitches Commenting ... anyone else?

Blog Posted:4/20/2021 9:15:00 PM

Is anyone else having trouble posting comments?

On one particular poet's page, I can't seem to comment on any one of her poems. It keeps popping up with a "System 500 error". I then try to Soup Mail the person, and I can't even do that ... same error message pops up.

So far it's only been that one person.

It's very strange (and annoying)....

Yep, Tim, I've been having the same problem. Sometimes it's better; sometimes worse. I hope they'll get it clear up soon because I'm getting way behind on my notes!

Timothy, I was able to comment on one of Susan Ashley's poems just now... so far, I have no issues commenting on anyone's poems on their pages. Yes I know it's annoying when you can't post your comments on someone's poems ..... May be some error... hope it would be resolved soon... ~ Ani

who is the person, so they can be aware of it!! I know one poet here whom I can comment to normally except on just one poem, it's impossible for me to leave a comment on that one! So weird. Thank goodness I am too busy this week to even do comments yet. Hopefully when I have time for them, these problems will be resolved!

Dear Timothy, thank you for raising awareness on this issue as it seems that many, but not all, are experiencing this “System 500 Error” glitch. It’s happened to me too when trying to comment but not recently. Also, thank you for your persistence in trying to leave your precious comments on my poems as I relish your beautifully contemplative and gracious thoughts. Your grand poet’s heart shines, my inspiring friend. ~Susan

It can be a little frustrating to say the least, especially where there seems to no rhyme or reason for it. The poet is Susan Ashley (makes one wonder if others are having trouble as well with her page... odd)
