beta testing: toll-free voice posting [Jan. 26th, 2007|05:34 pm]
Paid Members


Earlier today we'd found that our voice post phone numbers weren't accepting calls. We're working with our provider to get the problem fixed as soon as we can. In the meantime, hachi rushed to finish setting up a different method of voice posting. We've managed to get a toll-free number for voice posts!

We've been working on this for a while, so while we weren't expecting to have this ready for today, we figured that we might as well try. In particular, it hasn't been stressed under load -- there may be some bumps along the way. So with that in mind, please feel free to set up voice posting if you haven't done so already, and then call 1-888-840-6189 to make a voice post from anywhere in the continental United States. :)

(Unfortunately, if you aren't in the US, you won't be able to use this number. We're still looking for a good international provider -- if you have one you'd like to suggest, please let us know!)

EDIT: This is now our primary voiceposting number -- the existing numbers have proven to be incredibly unreliable, so we're migrating to just this number. Update your contacts lists!

EDIT EDIT: We'll be working on getting alternate numbers, for all of you who've commented saying that this one doesn't work for you (for whatever reason). Keep an eye on news :)

It's supposed to.

Though if you are in Canada or anyplace else that's part of the North American Numbering Plan Area, then it's not really supposed to work for you. It's intended for the folks outside that ragion.

Ah. That explains it, then.

Gah - so people in Canada can't voice-post AT ALL?

That's pretty suck. LJ, I used the feature regularly, when I had to pay for it, now you make it free, and I can no longer use it?

Can we get any information on whether this is actually being pursued, or whether we're going to CONTINUE to get less for our paid accounts than everyone else?
