    Anyone having any problems with Fiddlergreen?

    I made a purchase of 3 Early Flyers on Firday afternoo, 4/14 and none of them has shown up in My Fiddlersgreen as of this morning.

    The free downloads now show a price of $2.95 and have a lable of Light Aircraft. I tried the Walden cabing and the FG Baloon today. When I click on the Wright Glider that's in My Models folder, I get a message that I'm forbidden to access this account.

    The forum link has been down the last few days.

    The real kicker is my last three emails, send to both Chip and Nick, to find out what's going have gone unanswered.

    Hi, Charlie:
    I noticed the same thing yesterday on my models and also sent an email to Nick, who the Home page suggests you contact with webpage problems...still waiting for a reply, but I expect it will be sorted out shortly. If I don't hear anything by the end of this week I will send another email to them.
    If I hear anything I will post it here, and hope you do likewise.
    Cheers!
    Jim

    Fiddler's green

    I didn't whether I was wrong or not, since I am very "amateur" regarding computers, but it was the first time I ordered something this way and couldn't go ahead. I am waiting until next week to check my bank account.

    I just checked and I can now access my models online.
    Must have fixed whatever was wrong!
    Oh Happy Day!
    Hope you both get the same resolution shortly!
    Cheers!

    I just tried. I can access my models alright, but when I tried to download the FG Balloon got the message Forbidden to access this document. All the supposedly free downloads still show a price of $2.95.

    My stuff from Friday is still among the missing. No answers to my email yet.

    Forum link still not working.

    Yeah, I probably spoke too soon....
    I was trying to access the space shuttle but I get the same forbidden message. I guess not all the links (and clinks) are sorted out yet.
    I'll send another note to Nick and see what happens.
    Hope they get back to you on your order in the mean time.
    Cheers,
    Jim

    I get a kick out of the help wanted ad they posted on their home page. For what they're offering, they really expect a lot of knowledge for a small amount of money especially if they want a person to be able to relocate with them over the winter.

    I'll keep everyone posted on the outcome.

    I just got a reply to one of my emails from Chip. It states that they "are still trying to fix things".

    Yep, I got a very quick reply from both Chip and Nick, and all the links I had trouble with earlier today are now fixed...thanks Guys!:grin:

    Now, I am looking forward to the new additions, and I understand there are going to be quite a few! Almost time to get those Magic Keys out!:grin:

    Cheers!

    Jim and Cardfan:

    You tow must have been the lucky ones. I just tried (2245 EDT) and none of the Early Flyers that I ordered on Fri are there and the link to the forum is down.

    I was told in an earlier email to give them a week and then try.

    FG Problems . . .

    Hi CharlieB,

    I just tried today, and I had no problems of accessing my previous models. However, I havenĀ“t tried downloading new ones. Anyone else having problems with new models?

    Bengt:grin:
