Is very annoying.

While it's a good idea, it seems to scroll up the screen as I move down a thread then get stuck in the bit where I type my post so that I can't see what I'm typing.

Anyone else having this problem? I'm using an iPad incase that makes a difference.

I'm not actually getting it at all on an ipad - on the mumsnet app, anyway. (Please don't take that as a challenge, MNHQ!)

I can't remember what I said I'd get my recipient - does anyone know where I can find out, please?

There should be a quote in the email they sent you yesterday, SDTG - have you looked there?

(Failing that, maybe drop them an email at ?)

Thanks - I will check the email, and if I can't find it, I will email them. thanks

Yup cozie is bang on SDTG - you should have received an email from us explaining stuff in a bit more detail.

Muchtoomuch - it should just sit at the bottom. Is it moving for anyone else?

slightly related, Ive clicked the button to say I've sent my gift, but nothing happens.
I've clicked it more than once, so maybe my recipient is getting multiple auto generated emails?

It is sitting at the bottom most of the time, but once I start typing a post it seems to move up!

We would recommend trying to refresh the page, it may have 'accepted' the click but not being helpful and saying so iyswim.

Can we also ask what browser you're using?

Thanks Alice. It was IE8 on windows 7.
I've done it now from the iPad.

The reminder thingy irritated me so much, that I sorted out my present, printed out my label and sent it off today.

Got home, pressed 'thingy' and "poof!" it disappeared.

So I suppose it had the desired effect.

Now I've just got to get round to doing a million other things before Christmas...

Marginally irritating though it may be, I'm very glad it's there - because at least it's reminding me to send to my SSs!

I've printed the labels and info, but I know that I can't organise them until next week.

Just to say I posted my 2 presents off today << feeling full of Christmas cheer now >> just a relief to have done it - I did find the naggy reminder very useful, it has disappeared now that I clicked on the button to say I've sent my gifts off.

Just a little thing .... when I was in the post office, I looked at the addresses for the first time and realised one of my SS MNer is in Europe. I feel a bit of a plonker because I bought a gift card to a well-known UK store (I was in such a rush, I just assumed they were both UK addresses sad. ) I hope they can somehow redeem the giftcard....

I sent my present to someone about 6 miles away!

If you don't have a printer can you just copy all the info on the label?

Gunpowder Fri 28-Nov-14 23:36:55

(That is, hand write it onto your own label.)

cozietoesie Sat 29-Nov-14 07:45:14

Of course you can. MN have just done it to help out if needed but there's no need to use it if you'd rather write your own.

Oh fab. Thanks cozie. smile

It looks like Miss Piggy in a motorcycle helmet... or with a Sixties 'bob'. grin

Just me then!

cozietoesie Sun 30-Nov-14 21:01:39

I can't replicate that on the laptop, the Mumsnet app or on Safari on the ipad.

What are you using, Much ?

cozietoesie Sun 30-Nov-14 21:02:45

Sorry - I meant device and browser etc. (I'm sure you haven't been at the gin!!)

Muchtoomuchtodo Sun 30-Nov-14 21:11:33

I'm using safari on the iPad confused

As soon as I start typing, it jumps from the bottom left of the screen to sit at the top of the keyboard and then seems to move up bit by bit until it obscures my typing.

My plan now is to sort my secret Santa and get rid of it!

cozietoesie Sun 30-Nov-14 21:44:27

....As soon as I start typing.....

Ah. Give me a couple.

cozietoesie Sun 30-Nov-14 21:46:55

Afraid that I started typing on the ipad (in safari) and it still wouldn't do it.
