15. Why Have I Been “Locked Out”?

Please do not take this notification personally.  It is merely our security software doing it’s job.  If you enter the wrong username/password combination more than 20 times, you get this message.

What usually causes this is people either making a typo, or when they copy and paste, they accidentally pick up an extra space at the beginning or the end. 

They try it, and when it doesn’t work, the browser enters the same information again, and the person just keeps clicking to try to make it work.

The solution, if you are not able to login on the first try, is to type the information again being very careful to make sure it’s accurate.

If you can’t get in after four or five tries, click on the “Lost Password” link and reset it. 

If that doesn’t work, write to mary@ChristianGays.com with your username and the password you want to use and I’ll reset it for you.

02. Why Is It Important To Complete My Profile?

There are THREE areas to fill in, the “Required Information”, the “Additional Information (Optional)”, and “I am on this website because (Optional)”).  

You are only required to fill in the first section (Required Information), but I really encourage you to fill in all items in all three categories if you want others to find you when they do an ADVANCED MEMBER SEARCH.

One of the options in Advanced Member Search is to search by keyword, so if, for example you love movies, and someone is searching for members with “movies” in their profile, they will find you.

You complete your profile by logging in and going to “My Stuff” -> “Edit Profile”

 

12. How Do I Cancel My Membership?

I hope you won’t want to cancel your membership.  We really need all of our members.  If you haven’t had any luck finding the person you seek, please don’t lose heart.  They might join next week and you won’t know if you leave us.

If you can’t afford your membership with us we can convert it to a Complimentary Membership.

If you have another issue please write to Mary and let’s talk about it.

But if you have decided that you really want to leave us there are two steps.

Login.  Go to My Stuff -> Cancel My Membership. 

This will take you to the cancellation page.

 

Step 1

Click the “Cancel My PayPal Subscription” button.

Cancel PayPal Subscription

 

 

This will take you to PayPal where you can cancel your subscription.  This will stop any future payments from being taken.

 

Step 2

Go to My Stuff -> View Profile.

Click Settings.

Click the link that says Delete Account.

Delete Account

 

 

 

This will bring up a box that tells you this action cannot be undone.

Delete Account Confirm

 

 

 

 

 

Tick the box to agree that you understand the consequences and then click the “Delete Account” button.

At that point all of your profile information will be removed from our records, and your forum posts will be attributed to “anonymous”.

 

04. How Do I Put Pics In My Posts?

When you are in “Visual” Editor you will see the following icons.  Click on the icon to Insert Image. 

 

 

 

This will bring up a small blank box.  Wait for a moment and you will see this. 

 

 

 

 

You can now choose your image from an URL or click on the camera (blue box) to upload from your computer. 

You can add a description and dimensions or leave it blank. 

If the picture is too big you can later edit it by clicking on the pencil and changing one of the dimensions.  Just make sure to tick “Constrain proportions”.
