TypeKey does not workThursday, November 8, 2007 at 6:57 | Posted in Blogosphere, internet, Web tools | 9 Comments
Does TypeKey identification have a bug or am I doing something wrong?
Jaanus changed his comment policy for understandable reasons: all of us bloggers are familiar with the ever increasing amount of spam comments and not always do we have time to install appropriate tools to cope with the problem. So Jaanus took the temporary step of allowing comments by signed in Type Key users only.
This inspired me to get myself a TypeKey account, something which I have been considering to do for a while but did never bother because there was no immediate reason to do so. So I created the account, confirmed my e-mail address and even updated my profile. I then went back to Jaanus to test my brand new TypeKey account.
As this screen shot of my second attempt to post a comment shows I was sigend in when writing the comment. But that does not seem to count. This is the error message I received on both attempts:
So either there is a bug in TypeKey or I am failing to see something obvious. Not a big deal per se but when you take the trouble of creating an account you would sort of expect that it worked for the purpose you created it.
