hi Jayson, I just tried it again and got the same message. I did do a photo -- all times -- and I made sure all other specs were right. (Like, it alerted me when I had too many characters in my description, so I reduced them.)

Here's the message I get:
A problem seems to have occurred.

For further assistance, please contact us.

Or you can go back to the Diversity in Aquatics main page or browse other Ning Social Networks.

Good morning. Try it again. I just added a test group and it worked. Make sure you add a photo for the logo, it is a required item. Please let me know if the problem still exists.

As for the partners, we would love to have you as a partner. If you send me a logo and short description, I will add it today.

Hi. I should be able to re-send the email in a couple of days (I am away from my office computer now) but all the info that was on the email is actually on my blog:


The last email told about Cullen and Lia at Olympic Trials -- and gave a link to a video interview -- all that is on the blog if you scroll down.

Take care! Jenny

Hi Jenny,

Would u please be so kind as to resend it to me at: dswimmerman@yahoo.com again, so I have a "Heads Up" on the project. Thanx and God Bless Ya. Darrick, aka dswimmerman
