Lakes Elementary

Todd, you gave the correct answer first! Yes, it's the playground at Lakes Elementary. Thanks for playing!
Stefanie Furge April 12, 2012 at 01:04 PM
Jessica...don't you think it's weird that we all posted at exactly 8:58? That's because we didn't. I posted at 8:22...someone how all of the posts that are "in cue" are being pulled up at once.
Jessica Nunez April 12, 2012 at 01:13 PM
Hi Stephanie, there was a problem with the comments again this morning and I had to manually approve them all. So even though they all came through at the same time, I can see when everyone ACTUALLY posted when I approve them. We are hoping the problem gets fixed soon!
Heidi April 12, 2012 at 02:23 PM
Recall! recall! Make it a 3-way tie! :)
Stefanie Furge April 12, 2012 at 02:26 PM
LOL Heidi! Just curious, does every comment have to be approved now?
Jessica Nunez April 12, 2012 at 03:05 PM
Nope! It is definitely not supposed to work this way. We have people working on fixing it. We want your comments to come through automatically, just as they're doing now. It was just those first three comments I had to approve manually.
Heidi April 12, 2012 at 03:48 PM
I was curious about the whole approval thing too. We're already signed in. I'm guessing it's like the 3 second delay in live TV (thanks to Janet Jackson) so there are no wardrobe malfunctions.
