Rescured From Duplicate Posts Embarrassment

By
Real Estate Agent with Pat Bennett Realty

I recently commented on a post and to my dismay found that it had been entered five times.  This occured because I saw no action when I clicked on the submit prompt.  I didn't know how to remove the extra posts and therefore left the website thinking that I would be looked upon as some kind of idiot.  The following day I received a message from a lovely lady who must have realized that I had trouble because I was new to this site.

How nice to find that there are still good people out there.

I was e-mailed with directions on how to remove my extra posts.  She simply guided me to the "My Home" page where the posts were shown and I deleted them from there.  I also received a warm welcome to active rain with a few tips as well.    Suzi Gravenstuk you are a gem!

Ann - I think you will continue to find people to be generally very helpful, friendly and professional here on Active Rain.  It is a terrific network - welcome!  I have made some wonderful friends and some money along the way during my journey here.  As Jeff mentioned, there's no need to be shy.  Enjoy!

We've all done this, Ann.  In fact, some of my friends have been kind enough to point out that I am an idiot after such an effort.  They tease because they can.  You'll make some wonderful friends here in addition to some great business contacts.  Eventually, you'll log on just to see what some of your new friends are up to.  Don't be intimidated in the least.  We're all making this up as we go along ;)  Welcome to ActiveRain, Ann!

Ha!  Case in point, I just left a comment that shows up as anonymous because I wasn't logged in!  You just can't fake this kind of unintentional humor!

What an idiot Slaybaugh is:-)

Seriously Ann, those above are right on.  The majority of contributors here are so very helpful and never be afraid to ask.  I've made so many bonehead moves on here that I should probably change my picture to include a dunce cap above my cranium.  It's ok though, they need me here to make all of them look smarter.

Hey Ann.

Sometimes the system is slow and this does happen.  Just hit delete and get rid of the extras if it happens.  Good luck

Hi Ann - that kind of thing happens whether we're new or not.  Sometimes the AR computer gremlins get in there and act up, and we end up with multiples like you had.

WELCOME to Active Rain!! Hope you enjoy it as much as I do, and as much as others do, too!
