Exclamation unable to comment in diet blogs

I have not been able to make comments in the 3FC diet blogs. I enter a comment and get "Comments temporarily suspended". I've tried this with several blogs I follow.
Please help asap!

I don't have the details, but I was told that there was an attack on the blogs by spambots. It was so bad that it caused major database errors across the website. New blogs and comments have been suspended for a while.

I'm sorry

I am new to this site and am experiencing similiar problems that you had. Whenever I write a "new thread" I get an envelope symbol w/ arrow over it? Then I read what symbol means and it said I had posted in a thread? Do you know what I did wrong and how to undue it?

Was this EVER fixed? I came back and tried to comment on some blogs, it's a little frustrating if it still hasn't been fixed.

I wondered what happened to the blogs. I used to keep mine up to date and would regularly receive comments. Then suddenly they stopped. LOL the blog was more for me to bring up my own personal journey but I always enjoyed hearing comments and receiving feedback and when it stopped I felt kind of funny about keeping it up to date.

I still check one person's blog here in the 3fc diet blogs. She occasionally posts, and I read it, but of course I can no longer comment.

By chance, I ended up in the 3fc diet blog home page today and noticed a former 3fc blogger I'd followed in the past had just restarted her 3fc blog a few days ago after a 5-year absence. I happen to be friends with her on FB, so I messaged her that the comments were disabled. Just so she knows. She responded that it was lame.

I agree. The comments have been disabled for a couple years now. I take it this is a permanent thing. Why isn't there something on the diet blog homepage that clearly states this? (If it's there, I don't see it.) Then if someone just wants to blog for themselves and doesn't care about comments from readers, at least they know. And those who want comments can go elsewhere to blog. Or instead just use the forum to interact with others.

Laura, I agree with you and I wish I could change it, but I'm no longer part affiliated with the website. As far as I know, the blog script became buggy and caused major problems with the server and put it at risk. They disabled the blogs so no more people could sign up or comment, for security purposes. By that time, most people had stopped using them anyway due to the appeal of self hosted blogs, blogger, social media, etc. If it's still available, there is a way for the handful of users that are left to export their blog to a file, then upload the file to blogger or another platform. If anyone wants help, just PM me and I'll try to remember how. (I can't access my old blog either). That would be my personal wish because I think the bloggers that are left will benefit more from a blog system that offers more current features and flexibility.

Ah, here are the directions for exporting blogs to another platform

So, you want to move your 3FC blog to blogger...
