Yawn!........How can I delete one of my pretty blue top travel writer badges for a destination? I refer specifically to the one for Figuig, Morocco, which I don't consider I merit, because I've never been through this one camel town, apparently I got the unexpected award by simply writing a few brief words somewhere to the effect that I doubted if there was a pub on its desert horizon and therefore it would not feature in my travel plans for next year! The absence of any other VT writings on the location appears to promote me to exclusive nomination for the badge, something I'm not comfortable with. Maybe if six other members just write how awful the prospect of venturing into this "watering hole-free" town would be, I will be knocked off my perch, so to speak, and the badge will just disappear?
Any suggestions from you technical wizards?........... Benny.
I'm sure this question must have been asked numerous times but if I want to add a place to the data base how do I go about it please?
How do I block someone?
All my photos are on an old XP computer gasping its last and I want to transfer them over to the new laptop. I haven't got the foggiest how to even start. Do I download to a portable h/d then upload onto the laptop? Or can this be done computer to computer somehow?
Philip died in February and I need to post that information on his home page. How do I do that?
Thank you for your help.
I wana know more about VT am new to this.
If I have knowlege of certain places, can I list myself as a resource or get notified if questions are asked about that place?
I finally bought a "real" smartphone witch has better camera etc When we went for only weekend trip, I was thinking how easy it would have been to upload restaurant tips with my phone. (I think I rather do the "things to do" and so on with real computer anyway..). Was there some kind of application for that, or should I just visit VT page with my phone? Back home allready, but for the future.
does anyone know how to contact vt? the contact button isn't coming up with anything. it may be their own technical problem. not sure. i would like to stop notifications via email cause i get about 100 per day in my personal email. how can i stop this? i love vt but i don't want my personal email flooded. thanks!
This annoyance only presented itself since the Profile Page layout was recently re-designed.
When I attempt to read the latest unread notices by clicking on to my user name, the drop down menu appears to facilitate this adventure, but when I click on to "dashboard" the result collides with Travel Insurance which I don't need, as I always arrange my own. In order to avoid "Travel Insurance" popping up with its underline, I have to deftly and swiftly circumnavigate my pad mouse with gout-infested index finger to arrive at the "dashboard" menu, no mean feat for an old-timer like me!
Can you not re-design, and shuffle "write a review" and "Bennytheball" along towards the left of the black banner, there is plenty of blank space?
Or could this be a cunning Head Office plot to promote commission-basis sales of travel insurance?

Hoping for advice from some of our photographic experts.
I have recently come into possession of a large collection of family photographs, all either black and white or sepia, and taken between 1910 and 1954. For at least the last 4 years they were stored in an old leather suit case in a damp cellar. Except for those taken by professional photographers and printed with a board backing they are ordinary family photos most of which I had never seen before. In order to "dry" them I spread them all separately on a large table. They are still not flat though and bend upwards at the sides so look like an almost completely flattened letter U.
I have placed them individually under the heaviest weight I have - 14lbs/ 6. 3k but have not got rid of the bend. Any ideas?
Or is this a hopeless task?

Haven't used Trip Planner for ages, so have completely forgotten how it works. I have had a reply to a question I posted that I now want to put into a Trip Planner page. How do I do this, please?
My firewall keeps blocking an attempted intrusion from "tumri.net" every time I navigate on a VT page. I only get the intrusion when I'm logged on VT, not any other site. Is this an advertiser, or otherwise affiliated with VT?
My mouse is fine for internet browsing but suddenly it won't work properly when I play Scrabble to which I am addicted. When I try to move tiles, it refuses to grab them. Occasionally it works . I have a cordless Logitech. Suggestions would be most appreciated. Thanks.

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
Can anybody tell me why it is impossible to create a page on the city of Portomarin, Galicia, Spain? Thank you in advance.
I have a question. Every time I want to reply to a question or a topic on the forums I have to log out first, search that specific topic again type my answer and then log in. If I'm logged in already, I don't see a box where I can type into.
I would be really happy if someone could help me :) Right now it makes it some sort of a hassle to reply to questions. To be able to ask this question too, I had to fist log out and, then write and then send it as I didn't see the 'ask question' button while I was logged in.
I am getting notification of every post in just about every location in the travel forum again. It happened a few weeks back and Kimberley kindly fixed it for me. I really don't understand why this is happening. I have not done anything differently to what I have always done. Anybody else having this trouble?

Hi, I am not able to post or reply on forums or leave comments. This is affecting me using 3 different browsers. Started yesterday.
Any ideas please?
How do I thank members for there answers to my question
I've recently noticed that when a particular topic or thread becomes interminably boring and I press the unsubscribe thingy, I am still receiving relevant but unsolicited notifications on the notice dashboards, why is this happening please, am I making some technical "faux-pas?"
I sent an e-mail on Yahoo Mail, but it's not in the "sent" folder.
I wanted to ask this since some time but first needed this to happen again so that I can make screenshots to show it on demand (of staff):
sometimes - not always - when VTers create new pages, I can see that they have uploaded many reviews (via the "People following" function).
But when I go to the respective pages' intros, I can only see a fraction of the reviews.
Often, 1-2 days later I can see all the reviews from the respective intro pages.
And to add some more confusion to this:
this happens only with some VTers' pages, not with all.
=> is this a glitch? Am I the only one? Is it my computer and the settings?
I am on Win 7 (desktop computer, no smartphone, notebook or tablet), FF ... well, I can't find the "about" questionmark anymore, to say which version it is. It is the latest, for sure, just 2 days ago it updated.
Thanks for shedding light into this!
