Just a bit of an update for everyone.

My special focus right now is the checkbox bug. This is not actually a TMP problem, but a bug in Firefox v54 that causes checkboxes and radioboxes to disappear. If everyone would upgrade to Firefox v55 that would fix the problem, but since we can't force that grin we are making changes in our coding and formatting to work around the problem.

You can see the new style checkboxes here: TMP link Hopefully, they are working for everyone. (If not, please report a bug on the appropriate board.)

Simultaneous to the Firefox bug, there is also a bug preventing some people from logging in (they are redirected to an non-existent webpage). We're resolving the checkbox bug first, because it hampers our ability to admin the website; then I'll go after the log-in bug. Right now, I don't have enough information about exactly what's happening and how, so PM me a detailed bug report if you can.

Editor Dianna is out sick today, we wish her a speedy recovery.

Editor Gwen is back in Lanao del Sur helping care for her brother-in-law and his family, and has limited internet access there. (No electrical lines to the house.)

Editor Hebber has found full-time work for a U.K. bank's call center. She continues to work for TMP in a part-time capacity. We wish her the best.

Editor Julia has left TMP and found work in eBay's customer service department. We congratulate her on her new position! She was the first staff editor, and paved the way for all who followed.

Good on you Bill. Sometimes just giving someone a chance to get some experience can lead to better things.

If everyone would upgrade to Firefox v55 that would fix the problem,

Firefox v55 is currently only in Beta and is not due for Official Release until August 2017:
