JPA-24 Just Playin' Around 24
Welcome to JPA-24 (Just Playin’ Around 24)!
This thread is about the HSN Arcade, although it can get off-topic as we chat with each other about the games(tips, questions, problems and accomplishments), our activities and daily life, special interests, pets, the Reward Prizes, shopping, avatars, how to post pictures, food and the HSN features.
We enjoy meeting new people as well as continuing the friendships we’ve made. So whether you want to make a one-time post or ‘talk’ multiple times daily, join in. Ask your questions, make a comment or just say Hi! We’d love to hear from you!
We also all try to get together on Friday evenings during HSN Game Night (8 PM Eastern) to answer the Trivia questions(assuming they work!) to earn tickets and to laugh and chat. So join in the fun and get some tickets.
We have newbie gamers as well as die-hard players whose names you’ll see on the leaderboards. Even if you have never played a game in the arcade, post your question and someone here will help out. We like to surprise each other and make each other laugh. So bring your sense of humor and join in the fun!

WHAT.. NO COFFEE???
This thread is taking a long time to load so I have started JPA-25. Thanks to everyone for contributing to this thread. Please post comments or replies to this thread on JPA-25 to be sure that your post is seen.
So stop spinning around and join us on JPA-25!!
HELLO DBRAMS,DEEKLEZ, MELCH77, TWIZZLE3 AND EVERYONE!
JUST GOT 100 POINTS FROM THE WHEEL!
Congrats on ur’ spinner win! WooHoo! Missing your morning coffee! I am downloading pics from google and uploading them on Tinypic. It’s free but a little time consuming.
GOOD EVENING ONE AND ALL! MEME, YOU AND HUBBY ARE ALWAYS IN MY PRAYERS AND WISHING THE VERY BEST ON HIS TESTING. MELCH AND BOOTCRAZY – I MISS YOU TWO FUNNY LADIES. WISH I KNEW HOW TO POST PICTURES AGAIN. JUST SEEMS SO POINTLESS TO COME ON AND ASK YOU ALL TO JOIN ME FOR COFFEE IN THE MORNING WHEN I CAN’T POST MY CUP. BUT I THINK OF ALL OF YOU ON THE THREAD AND WISH EVERYONE THE BEST. KEEPING YOU ALL IN MY THOUGTS AND PRAYERS.
@cupatea Thanks for explaining about the tabs. I agree about their making things more difficult. You would think that they would want to make links to HSN products that are discussed. And people were posting more pics of things that they bought. I would think that that would help sales. I have even noticed that the moderators are not responding as quickly to people with Customer Service problems and difficulties. I also think that many of the big spenders and people who have time to be on the forums are older, but the size of the type and the awkwardness of the Forums isn’t very pleasant for them.
Many new readers start out by just smiling or in some way indicating that they’ve read a post. That is gone now as well as the notifications. They have done away with the “Getting Started” Forum so a newbie to the Forums is really confused. And not being able to search for topics or threads isn’t helpful either. When new people do post, I’m afraid that they are not getting much feedback. And without the Rankings or some way to identify new people, you really don’t need which people might need extra help.
I really thought that they would have made some of the promised improvements by now. Maybe on Mon. when tech team is back (although I thought the same last Mon!!)
Hi Melch! I have been there. I may get tickets on S2W once a week. I am an UNLUCKY Duck!
Melch, hubby is going for tests tomorrow. Please keep him in your prayers. Thanks.
Good afternoon! I hope that you all have had a great weekend!
Hello @gandksmem8! Hope all is well with you. Have you been in the arcade? I lost on that spinner today….Bummer. Prepared more coffee..French press…Help yourself.
Come on Bootcrazy..waiting on you!!!
Good Morning JPA ers! Hope all is well! Made some coffee for everyone before I head out to church.
thought this was funny
thank you for posting in my post and love the picture too. I used the UL tab to try and post up the picture from the HSN site of the Xyron 5 all in one. That was a no go other then the item number showing up better then when I tried in the first post of my thread. What I did was click on the UL and then copy and pasted the address for the xyron in the ul box with Http. As you see nothing showed up other then the item number.
What I did for my typing in my second post was I type it out in my windows word program in red and in bold and enlarged the type to see if I could copy and paste it into the post. It did paste but in black and bold only.
I am familiar with tiny pictures and Photobucket. What I would have to do at this point is too take a picture with my camera then download it to my computer then upload it to tiny pictures then download it to the post that I was creating. Such a round about way to get one thing done.
With that said good on FBN135 for that information. At this point at least pictures can still be posted. As you all have done here.
In my opinion I feel that HSN has gone so backwards with the new design of the forum. It feels so like old AOL and the beginnings of forums and instant messaging. That had all come a long way and now to through it all back to the stone age days of computing. Then again I feel that way about Microsoft windows 10 too. Move forward but go backward.
How are you able to refer to a poster as you did with FBN135. I have tried it the old way hitting the Shift key and the @ sign. I just get the @ and no reference to the poster I am referring to.
I checked out all the tabs on the message box and even actually fully deleted a whole post.
Thank you again my friend for the information in my post over at the craft and sewing.
Your HSN friend,
@cupatea As far as I can tell you do have to get the pic on your computer and then Upload it to Photobucket, tinypics, etc and then copy the URL to the IMG in the Reply box. @bootcrazy posted that baby pic yesterday some other way and we were excited that there might be a short cut but she was unable to duplicate that method on any other pic.
I had the same experience with the copy and paste of colored type, different sized type or different fonts. It does show up just as the bland print of every post. And the type is not conducive to those with reading difficulties. Several on JPA have said they are having to use eyedrops when they are on the forums for very long. I cannot figure out why they went to such an antiquated forum either. You can’t even search Users or posts or topics. And they took 2 weeks to get this!!
I’m still hanging onto Win7 until support runs out in 2020. I don’t need Cortana to talk to me!!! Plus I still use my Media Center.
To get the @ to turn blue for person's nic, you do as you said–make the @ sign and then without any space type the EXACT nickname. The capitalizing and numbers etc have to be exactly right. I also leave a space after the nickname. For example I wouldn’t put in the nick and then a comma, exclamation point, period etc without leaving the space. I’m not sure if it works without the space but I think I tried it several times early on and it didn’t turn blue without the space. You will NOT see it blue in your reply box and you no longer get prompts for the nickname so you have to type it out yourself.
To make it show up darker I hold down the left click on my cursor to go over the @ and nic to turn it blue and then I click on B on the left side of the upper bar in the Reply Box. This will make it darker. I didn’t do that in my earlier reply to you, but I did it on this post. Keep in mind it is not working to send notifications to the people, but I think it makes it easier for people to see a post to them–especially when you are posting it further down the page than the post you’re replying to.
I wasn’t sure what you meant when you said that you check out all the tabs on the message box. What or where is the message box? And what did you mean by deleting a whole post? Are you talking about one of your posts?
I assume from what you wrote that you saw my post to you above melch’s April Fool ones as well as the one on your thread.
You weren’t around ( I don’t think) when this format started. We already did JPA 23 and tomorrow will probably have to start JPA-25. With everything on one page, we need to keep them shorter.
I have made TAGS for both of the threads (since the new format) to make the thread easier to find when it drops off the first page (why the list of topics on the Comm. Forum home page has page numbers instead of scrolling I don’t understand. That’s the part that would benefit from scrolling!)
The TAGS are in alphabetical order on the left side of Comm. Forum home page. . I would recommend that you use Tabs for your crafting threads. I think that you have to do it when you create it. A box shows up that says TAG when you are creating a post.
If you click on the TAG it will take you to that thread, sort of. When it shows up, you have to click on the Full Title for the whole thread to show up.
Are we having fun yet? 🙂
Thanks I tried so lets see if it works. I was talking about all the tabs in the typing box you know the ones on the top Like B for bold link etc. Good for you with windows 7. I told Microsoft a thing or two about windows 10. Feed back comment from them to me. HA Ha.
Also too back in the day we did screen shots to post a picture of something from our computer. I do not know how that would work here. I will try to tag my next new post over in crafts and sewing. I thought about that with my first one. I can do the tiny pictures and photobucket I use to display some pictures of my sims game back in the day when I played The Sims. It was more of a pain to me then what it was worth. I found the posting of pictures here on the old HSN forum to be so easy.
I think I joined between 2011 and 2013. I used to always post a comment in Darlene Cahill’s blog. I know it has not be too long since on actual forum. Seems like at least two years not sure.
Anyway you have a great night. Thank you again my friend.
Have a great night all you Jpa-24.
Your HSN friend
