  8. This happened to me, when I had a landline. Hung up the phone wrong, referred to her as that .... very loudly, then realized the phone wasn't on the hook right. But after I noticed it I realized I didn't care if she heard me, and kind of hoped she did.
  9. You should be able to. Everything seems to be working, and I just tested it. You are below your limit, but that should only affect incoming messages. I just increased everyone's PM storage, so that may help, if the people you have been attempting to PM have filled inboxes. Doesn't hurt to prune those every once in awhile.
  10. I was worried this might happen. There was an update to the software, along with some supposed important security fix. Also when I updated the skin I used also had to be updated. Problem is the update has the potential to erase manual settings that force the ads into the right space. (Supposedly.) And now I have to look up how I did that. Unfortunately the ads started providing revenue again, so I am not sure if the fix throttles that revenue for some reason. I will get it fixed, hopefully tonight, but give me a day or two just in case.
  11. Account deletions are a complex thing. If done completely it can affect the posts of other people, so we are reluctant to do that. There is a way to remove the account, but leave all the posts with an anonymous name attached, though any references would be left that would show the name. Can I ask why you want to do this? PM if you want.
  12. People have been emailing me about selling VENDicuss. I keep telling them no. I recently was asked to call somebody, without reason. I responded by asking about what? They responded with the possibility of buying the site. Well I responded with this: Interestingly I haven't heard back from him. I forgot that I would add that any sale would require a new buyer to sign a contact agreeing that these clauses be added to any agreement.
  13. I've always recommended getting one or 2 machines, take them apart and put them back together if your doing bulk. Full line you do want to know the inside of the machine, and learn to fix it, but not take it apart unless you need to. Place it/them, then start figuring out how well they do, and how much you like vending. If it just doesn't work out for you, you aren't out as much, and don't have a bunch of brand new machines sitting in your garage. But you might find you can locate machines and make yourself take care of them fine, so you start expanding using the profit to help you expand. Expanding more slowly like this isn't just cheaper, it lets you learn without getting thrown in at the deep end, and getting overwhelmed. Then you grow as you get more efficient, and figure things out. This can be cheaper than spending $5 grand up front, and your profits can be plowed back into the business, giving you the choice of growing slowly with only the profits, or using your money to speed up the expansion. Doing it this way is less risky, and when you are ready to use more of, or the rest of that money it will be on something you are familiar with. Instead of investing that money on something you hope would pay off, you would be investing it in something you are already experienced with, and that is a much lower risk.
