Reply to star gaze lily: I sent you an email on Monday afternoon (to the address registered on your GW site user account), to gather a few details about your system, so our technical team can look into the problem for you. Did you receive it? I've just checked and we don't seem to have had anything back. If you didn't get it, please let me know, and I'll resend it. Many thanks, Daniel

Thanks for the update, Pete8, and for submitting your Support Details report last week. I passed it on to the tech team, and they've raised a support ticket to look into the issue with the notifications for you.

Reply to little-ann: Thanks for sending your Support Details submission, which I've passed on to the techies.

Hello everyone. The problem seems to be caused by Chrome 31.0.1650.57, in conjunction with Windows 7!

Thanks to dovefromabove and GarethW for the Support Details submission - very helpful.

If anyone else is experiencing the problem with enlarged or reduced text, I suggest trying a different browser until either Google or our developers find a permanent fix!

I'm sorry for this - it's very strange. I can't replicate the problem on my machine, so I'm guessing it must be caused by a particular combination of browser and operating system. In order that the techies can help, we'll need to gather a few details about your system, so they can attempt to replicate the issue before finding a solution.

It would be very helpful if you could visit the following site, and just input your name and email address where prompted and also our email address ( in the ‘Recipient’s email’ in the fields at the top of the page:

The site automatically detects your browser and operating system – you don’t need to add any technical details yourself. All very quick and easy.

If you can send us that then we’ll do our best to resolve the problem for you.

Many thanks,

Daniel Haynes

Hello trifid house. I've sent you an email, as our tech team will need a few details from you in order to investigate the problem. If you can take a few moments to follow the instructions in the email, I'll pass the information on to them.

Reply to jatnikapyar: I'm afraid I haven't had any private messages from you!

So, I'm not immune from the problems with the messaging tool at the moment! It seems to be working erratically - some messages get through, some don't. As posted on another thread, I'm expecting an update today on the work to correct this problem, so I'll post an update as soon as I know something.

If anybody else has private messaged me and not received a response, I'm not ignoring you, it just won't have been delivered.

Until we have a resolution, I'd suggest emailing if you need to get in touch with us.

Reply to Dovefromabove: I'm expecting an update from the dev team about the issues with the PMs, so I'll post a progress report as soon as I know anything.

KEF: I'll send you an email, as I'll need to gather a little information about your computer set up, so we can sort it out for you.

Hello Pete8,

I'm sorry the notifications aren't working for you. I'll drop you a quick email, to get a few details about your system (browser, operating system etc), so our tech team can look into this for you.
