Weather Underground stopped their support for the widget we've been using since 1999. We're looking for another free weather widget service

On this site, there's a blue box on the left side near the bottom that has three items:
WIRELESS HOTSPOTS
Recycling Schedule
MCTV Schedule

Hope this helps ....

Congratulations! AND . . . the new format isn't working for me. Shortcut display boxes I used to always use are gone. :(

Where is the Recycling Schedule? Thanks!

This website is now 21 year old. It's legal! Yay to us for keeping it going, and to all of you for continuing to come and hang out.

Upgrading The Website
Two comments, now that I've used it a little:

* the "Message" box for creating new posts is very small -- 3 5/8" wide by 3/4" high on my monitor. Makes it impossible to see a post that's more than a few words, which makes proof-reading and editing cumbersome. Can it be made bigger?

* The "Submit Post" button is way down at the bottom. If you're replying to a long message, you have to scroll down to find it. Could it be located nearer the top?

Thanks,

Nice to see the changes! One thing missing that (I think) we all use a lot -- the recycling link!

Upgrading The Website
Thanks, Stash! The link has been put into the blue box on the side. We'll continue working on the upgrades on and off for the next several weeks. Wish we had started the upgrades last summer so we'd've been done in time for the 20th anniversary of MontagueMA last October, and fully upgraded by February of this year... just in time for the COVID lock-down. Ah well. The future is still open. 25th anniversary in October 2024!

Upgrading The Website
Hey folks, just to let you know, we're finally beginning to do some visual upgrades on the website code (which also runs leverettma.net, shutesburyma.net, greenfieldma.net etc) and will also be upgrading some of the functionality, such as commenting on posts instead of creating new, linked posts as a reply. we'll also be simplifying how rights and roles work in the back-end (for any admins out there reading this) and generally making it more dynamic and mobile friendly. Why let Facebook have all the fun?

So, if you see any weird layout issues or get an error while posting, please accept our apologies in advance, and thank you for your patience.

Mik

New Website Development
Hey everyone. Just an early warning that the programming behind MontagueMA.net and all the other community websites I host using this code will start changing, fairly drastically, in the next couple months.

The plan is to make it easier to use, and more 21st Century social media -ish, like Facebook, Twitter, Diaspora, and others. Many of the fine-grain settings will go away, and new features will come in, like supporting #hashtags and @usernames.

We will utilize Bootstrap as the user interface framework, and streamline the website's layout to be simpler and faster loading. It will work very well on a smartphone and tablet.

Any ideas, wishes, suggestions, etc., will be entertained.

I'll let you know when the work actually starts.

Calling Emails From This Website Spam
Mik,
I know you contacted me about this some time ago and I assure you, I did not tag any MontagueMA emails as Spam, but somehow, my spam filter got the wrong idea.
It is a pain when this happens. Sometimes people registering for Gill Energy Commission workshops go to the junk mail folder and i can't guess why.

Calling Emails From This Website Spam
I have to say, it's pretty upsetting to me when people who sign up on this website and indicate they want to receive all posts by email -- then click the "THIS IS SPAM" button in their email program, instead of coming back to the website and simply change their settings.

http://www.montaguema.net/edit_me.cfm

When you tell AOL or Yahoo or Comcast or Hotmail that the email you receive is spam you are actually asking them to block ALL EMAILS from my server to their server. That includes my other customer's legitimate emails out to the world, and other users of this website who subscribe and happen to also be on AOL or Yahoo, etc.

I don't get paid to run this website. Please don't hamper my living by taking the short cut.

Thanks,

Mik

Website Cookies
Hey folks. You may have noticed lately that this website would be down for some reason or another. We have been working on the problem on and off, and this afternoon decided to change the application server software from a free version of the CF language, called Railo, back to Adobe's ColdFusion 9. Yup, we went out and bought a copy for $500 and popped it in.

Also, if you are having trouble logging in, you should make sure to clear or delete your browser cookies for this website.

Please let me know if you encounter any issues.

Thanks,

Mik

The Montaguema.net Webste Has Moved
Hey everyone. I just moved the MontagueMA.net website to a new, faster server. If you log in and notice any bugs or errors, please let me know. You can call me at 413-320-5336 if you like.

This year I plan to focus on the software again, upgrading it, simplifying it, and bringing it into the 21st Century with features common on other social media platforms. If you have any ideas, please let me know.

One of the features that has been asked for by Patrick Pezatti is to be able to respond to messages posted here via email. That is something I'm seriously considering.

Mik

Hey all...

I'll be at Kali B's in Turners Falls tomorrow evening (Thursday) at 6:00 or thereabouts if anyone wants to have some drinks and eat some wings and things in celebration of MontagueMA.net's 15th anniversary.
