You are 100% correct Pigeon. Below is a screen capture I took on my iPhone which I emailed to myself then posted here-

Notice the second last sentence? That what Pigeons talking about, this guy must be removed!

Yes, most annoying, I use atomic browser for my Iphone, which does connect if you set it to firefox mode. However anyone using safari or other mobile browsers will be re directed. Questions are being asked.

This is a polite request remove the link posted directing to the download page, as whilst you may not like the people running the service, it is in effect taking money away from Lucy.

I had already edited the links so they were no longer clickable and I have now further edited them so they cannot be copied and pasted.

I don't want to do any more than that because the purpose of them being there is to make it clear exactly what the error is that Robster fell over which started the whole kerfuffle, and thereby enable other people to avoid falling into the same trap. If I mangle them too much that won't work.

Edit: - Ah, I see our posts crossed Smile

Yes, we did.

One thing to clarify my post on the previous page only reflects the link between Lucy and adult services. I am not keen on moral judgments based on peoples jobs. Maybe the posts made by several were not meant to be moralistic but they came across to me as such

I make no comment on any other subjects related to the IT.

Understood Smile

As far as those "links" (not the web sort) are concerned, because I was talking in terms of the content policies of the official website and they are not part of that - they don't really come into what I was saying except insofar as the official website takes care not to mention those "ads" Smile

Though I note that you too make only an oblique and fairly non-google-worthy reference to that channel instead of naming it outright... Could be our positions aren't so far apart as we think Smile

As far as the IT goes, that is one of my specialist subjects Smile It would have taken me about two days to code that website from scratch and move it to a new server complete with fully-working forum - unavailability of forum database dumps notwithstanding, I'd simply upload a script to produce them - and it typically takes that long for the initial DNS TTL changes to propagate so you can't do it any faster. I wouldn't take months on end, I wouldn't break anything or lose four years' worth of content and I wouldn't install unsolicited user-agent redirects which cause questions to be asked. Not because I'm any kind of super-pigeon but simply because anyone with a normal level of competence would be able to do that.

OK.

Thanks to everyone, especially Pigeon, for their investigations into this. I looked again at the hyperlink in the text message sent to me when I first signed up and the hyperlink is indeed missing the last "forward slash" (which appears to make all the difference)... BUT there is a "/" after the hyperlink finished which I never noticed originally which of course was not included when I first touched on the hyperlink, leading to all of the above!

For the record, I used a WAP-enable HTC Wildfire to sign up. Hopefully when the site is again accessible, I will be able to go in again and try it. (I didn't text "STOP" yet as it hasn't yet been a week, so will see if I receive another link on Sunday, which this time I wont reveal!!!).

I appear to have stirred up a hornet's nest here but none of this would have happened if I had been sent the correct hyperlink in the first place. It seems it's more a case of incompetencey by the subscription service rather than any kind of foul play by anyone involved.

Once again Pigeon, thank you

Thumb Up!

Don't feel bad about the "hornets' nest". Dysfunctionality needs to be exposed and brought to attention so that action can be taken against it - this is a general principle Smile Your report did exactly that and so I thank you too Smile

Your post tonight also contains useful information. If I understand you correctly you are saying that the missing trailing / was not a copy/paste error on your part?

I read your post as either saying that the link you were sent did not have a trailing / at all, or it was in some kind of broken format that caused your phone not to register the trailing /.

There was no human error on your part, you were sent a link which was either just plain wrong or which somehow caused your phone to misinterpret it.

Have I got that right?

Hi Pigeon

Yes the last "/" was indeed included in the received text but was NOT actually a part of the hyperlink to click on. You know how a hyperlink is usually hi-lighted in blue or some other colour and the whole underlined? Well the trailing "/" was not actually part of the functioning hyperlink, was not in blue and was not underlined, therefore was not technically part of the functioning hyperlink and was not effective when selected! Who would have thought that one simple forward-slash could cause so much trouble??!!

Maybe it's just a niggle that affects my phone and others similar to it. I have just this now set up my mobile handset to surf the web using the Wi-Fi connection of my home network, therefore not incurring excess data charges. The mobile site is still not working. Maybe it's all the kerfuffle stirred up here and on the official forum which has led to that.

At least I managed to access the correct page on my PC earlier tonight to get the exclusive photo; I didn't feel bad as I DID actually pay for it. It is now where it should be, that is on my computer not on my damn mobile!!

Cheers Big Smile

I understand - thanks Smile Yes, you were definitely sent a malformed link.

And you're spot on with that "Who would have thought that one simple forward-slash could cause so much trouble??!!" I won't bore everyone with the technowaffle about this point but I've never seen a case before where it makes a difference.

I think it unlikely that the problem is some specific type of malformation that only fails on your model of phone. An HTC Wildfire is neither uncommon, nor outdated, nor so new as to be untested. I think it's more likely that those such as paulb11 who didn't have problems with a malformed link received it earlier than you did - ie. that the service initially sent out correctly-formed links and then later started sending out malformed ones. Though that's more or less just gut feeling at the moment.

Not that it makes any difference from our point of view - all that matters is that the link definitely was malformed and shouldn't have been.

The mobile site down? (checks) Ah... so it is. A new development. My posting earlier was about Lucy's official site being down when accessed from a mobile phone, redirecting to mobileglamour.co.uk instead of showing Lucy's site. That is still happening... only now that the mobileglamour site is down as well, it produces a blank page instead of the page RockyMoney posted.

And that last sentence brings me back to my suggestion of replacing the whole thing with a platform-independent download service through redhotglamourgirls Smile

i signed up to the text service on the day it was launched and I've only had one text.

I thought we were supposed to get 1 txt per week.

Anyone else had the same problem or have you been receiving txts?

Pigeon: If you want to start a petition about suggesting the Red Hot Glamour Girls idea you have to Lucy (or my license idea), I will be the first to sign up!! Big Laugh

Also, Pigeon, maybe you should remove those links from this thread as it means that anyone can go into the site and get the picture and/or video without paying. I think maybe you should delete the number at the end; I think people may be able to guess what the missing letters are! LOL Hehe (I just now deleted the number myself from my original post).

Nacho: Maybe you will get another link sent to you by the end of this week? I am expecting another one by 3:30pm tomorrow as that will be a week since I got the first one. Maybe WE have to send "LUCY" to "81404" every week to access a new link? Maybe the instruction to send "STOP" is redundant? Who knows?

By the way, was there actually a video to go with "Mobile Picture no.1"? Has anyone had any luck getting it?

Whatever, whoever it was on the official site who said that the pages were not or should not be accessible from a Desktop PC internet was obviously talking out of their backside as I could view them.

I'm afraid that comment was made more with the intention of denigrating this site rather than addressing the problem Sad

As far as the link is concerned the purpose of it still being here is so that everyone who comes to read this thread can see, and see very clearly, what the problem is and knows how to avoid it. If that wasn't important I'd have taken it down completely by now Smile and if I munge it too much that clarity will be lost. Clarity is important since so many people are such divs with computers Hehe Paulb11 made the same comment as you, and since he's happy with what obscuration I have done with it in response, I think it can stay like that for now Smile

I already have tweeted the redhotglamourgirls suggestion to both Lucy and GM - I did it before all this came up, it was in connection with the matter of people not being able to use the service from outside the UK.

...The mobile site now appears to be working again, but Lucy's official site is still inaccessible from a phone.

Wha...? No, no, no, no, sorry! I didn't mean that... I think you've misunderstood the first line of my post Smile

I was just referring to "Whatever, whoever it was on the official site who said that the pages were not or should not be accessible from a Desktop PC internet was obviously talking out of their backside as I could view them." I'm saying that that comment on the official site was made more with the intention of denigrating this site rather than addressing the problem. Not anything you wrote yourself Smile

Sorry for the misunderstanding Smile
