I still have about 20 domains on another hosting company. I would like to transfer all of them to WA but lack of access to MX records has kept me from doing it.

Interesting and good inquiring. Would like to know this as well.

Is it possible to simply point to the WA name servers?

Canty

No, it’s not. Thanks for your message Canty.

Site support is well schooled in Google Workplace installation, nothing to worry about just copy the records you need included and tell them what you want deleted.

I have done several with them and happy every time.

Thanks LiveOnLeyte.

Site support will let you know exactly what you need from your current hosting provider to transfer your domains over. Open up a site support ticket and let them know exactly what you’re wanting to do. They’re quick to respond and will get you sorted.

Thank Eric.

Hi Tom

Believe that should be directed to Site Support.

For now, we cannot.

Thanks Abie.

You're very welcome Tom.

Hi Tom

You go back to your previous plan as long as you remain subscribed to the platform.

Hope this helps.

Key here is remaining subscribed to the platform.

Thanks Abie!

You're very welcome Tom.

and Tom ... Kyle is in Live Chat right now if you'd like to check in with him directly ...

Thanks again Keishalina!

Thanks Keishalina!

always a pleasure, Tom! ... Big Success to YOU! ... :))

and by the way, Tom -- the BF deal has been extended for a few days which gives you a bit more time to work on it ... :))

Yes, if you decide Premium Plus is not for you you can always downgrade back to Premium at the same price that you had before.

Alex

Nice to know, Alex. I'd wondered the same.

I have noticed that the profile pages of members who left WA still show the diamond next to their profile pictures. It is confusing as anyone can think that they are still memb

A former member who rejoined, needed a tax record from when they were formerly a member. They were glad because they could retrieve that info, now that they rejoined.

If you wonder if someone is active, see if they recently posted something.

Many people do not seem to ever update their goals.

Goals from new members help us not so news to decide if we have something in common and want to help them.
Maybe we want to see if they have any fire in them to achieve their goals, or if they are flat liners. :>( ---------------------------------------!!

Or one of our friends recently left in February, but the lights are always on, in case he wishes to return. Like when he gets a reality check, $$$ on hosting fees for multiple websites and domains, and wants to come back home and save some Moolah!
Oh WA Please Let Me Back In!!

*Our friend posted over 400 posts, so gemstone or crown in memoriam is still well deserved!

You asked Tom, and there's my opinion, and I'm waiting to see what others bring to add to the stew.

Glad they are keeping the lights on for me here at WA, not so much me keeping the lights on for WA , thanks to the Black Friday deals!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! No Ka Oi.
And 2.2 million members can't be wrong that WA is the Best PERIOD.
Suzay

Thanks Suzay, that explains quite a lot 👍 guess if a person wishes then they should request the action that needs to be taken- best course of action, I think.

Thank you Chris, nice to see you

Hi Tom at this time the platform does not distinguish if a members subscription is live or not.

I would imagine that it would take considerable resources to implement a system that flagged that situation, purple for live Red for not?

The only way would be checking out if the Not Live tag comes up after trying to PM them, as Diane and Abie say. Thanks, Alex!

The easiest way is just to go to a members profile, it stands out. Just on a side thought once a member of WA always a member it's only that paid members get to access the resources.

Yes, I was aware--you can try to send them a PM and usually it shows whether they are "Live" or not!

Jeff

Yep, thanks, Jeff!

You're welcome, Tom! When I read down, I saw that A & AJ had already answered minutes before!

Hi Tom - as far as I am aware, all the profiles of any member who has ever registered are still shown. They are only deleted if they are banned from the platform or have deleted their own account. I presume its in case they come back in the future, whether that be next week or in five years.

The only way you can tell if a member is no longer here, is if you have ever exchanged Private Messages, as it will say Not Live.

Yes, I have noticed that too (PM). However, before trying that, the diamonds there cause confusion. Thanks Diane!

Makes sense, Diane!

As you know Marcus was banned but his profile is still here. I know a few more in the same status.

I wonder if there is a difference between being write banned with no communication but still being able to access the platform, as opposed to being banned altogether for the most serious infringements?

I am not familiar with this, but I know several people who were banned and forced to leave, yet they are formally here.

Thanks, Jovo. If I happen to catch Kyle in Live Chat I will ask him.

I haven't seen any cancelled members with a premium tag. How do you know they cancelled, Tom?

That is weird that it would show them as still premium members, unless the process takes a moment or two...

Rudy

Because they had already made their final decision to cancel, expressed through their last posts.

Yes, that's true. But what they say and what they do apparently are two different things...

I agree. However, there is also a difference between a message that expresses a wish and another one that expresses a final decision made.

Yesterday, I noticed that the WA top bar on my iPhone suddenly turned black (sort of like dark mode). Is everyone experiencing the same?

I prefer the old bar since all

Hi,

You may like report in below thread if not done so already. Our icons are going dark too, and dashboard drop downs white.

Hope it is fine for now, Tom.

Happened to me before, never bothered about it since it always got fixed by the time I log back in, the longest when there seems to be an update on the site, another when there seem to be a problem.

To success on your online journey!!!

Interesting...hadn't noticed...

Me neither, Rudy!

I agree
