Seems to be a bit cheeky, using this forum to ask about another, but is it just me or is there a problem with the MEM website - are other having problems accessing it?

I haven't been able to access it since last night - a message comes up saying there is a problem with my website?

Well, I am still getting the the message that there is a problem with my website. I am not sure what they mean by that, what website would that be, but perhaps it is an Apple thing, as I tried via my (non-Apple) mobile phone and I went on OK, but it was so small I can't read it!

Hi Chris

I just tried on my Ipad and all seems ok but did get an ad trying to get me to use it "to better read" MEM

Hi Trevorh, very strange, I am still getting the message:

"If you are seeing this page instead of your website, please contact your hosting provider as there is a problem with your website." My website? What is my website?  I don't understand at all! 

Not only that but I tried to contact them using the email address I have for them of info@modelenginemaker.com, and twice now I have had a non delivery notification report saying that it was a 'bad destination mailbox address', so I don't know what is happening!

I have got a message off to someone there who used to be involved, I just hope he can forward my query to someone there who can help.

Chris

for some reason it includes several tracking (spyware) items including a non-visible single pixel from facebook specially to track those with javescript turned off (those with it on get to load several such trackers) - presumeably the management is happy to host such spyware + trackers

Much as I dislike Apple's commercial instincts it is at present leading the non-geek push against intrusive ads + tracking (geeks already use several adblockers + referal denying extensions to firefox)

Humm - problem may have been solved. I saw that Safari had a 'reset' facility, and within that there are various selectable options so that you can reset but not lose history for example. So I unchecked what I wanted to save and clicked 'reset' and found I am straight into MEM again, so back to having 2 good sites to access. For the time being at least!
