Now could I have some real critiques on this tree?

By IamDora
Since I am now a GUEST! with none of of the privileges of a MEMBER - which EPZ refuses to me - you will get these trees one bloody tree at a time! Because I am not allowed as a GUEST! to use the versions feature. And BTW I will give you a “GDA” (Guest Denied Award) when I really like your post because, as a GUEST! I can't give awards either.

Did you really think - as Po-ed as I am with EPZ - I would go away!

IMHO, that "some" countries can't pay as others do, smacks with me in all the wrong way.

If this is a dead tree then is this another tree that has decided to grow on it? I'm not sure what your dilemma is. Why can't you be a member?

I don't know either but, in the process of what turned out to be a marathon to burying my brother at home, the act of renewing my membership should have been simple But in spite of the fact, I am trying to renew at exactly the same point I joined, ESP no longer allows for us to renew.

Tre growing out of tree? Same one?

I don’t get it Dora….why can you not renew? EPZ won’t take your payment?

SORRY TO HEAR OF YOUR MISHAPS ---- YES I CAN UNDERSTAND THE FRUSTRATION ESPECIALLY IN THOSE DIFFICULT TIMES! MY HUMBLE SUGGESTION WOULD BE TO WRITE TO EPZ WHEN WATERS ARE CALMER AND EXPLAIN YOUR POSITION AND REQUEST.

This is a geographical issue Dora? And/or something with paypal?
Love the new life here, but would crop the roof out of the bottom Smile

I see it as an omen of new life springing from the old dead wood. A metaphor for your situation Dora, they've chopped you down but you are arising Phoenix like from the embers! Too much...thought so! WinkWink

Photo critique, square crop and the focus will be on that Grinch like tree face with a Christmas festive, green crown sprouting out!

By the way I totally admire your stand and I would email and ask for an explanation. There will be one to do with charges etc on cards from certain countries. In the mean time we shall form the, 'Free the Costa Rican One Campaign'.

Hi Dora,

We have explained at long length why we only accept PayPal now and I can see from the internal reports that we’ve tried our best to help you.

I’m very sorry for your personal circumstances with your brother.

That aside, if you simply opened a free account with PayPal you could easily renew. Or pay someone back who does have PayPal. Or pay using online banking.

Please don’t air your frustrations on the site - please continue using the internal report system where your complaint will continue to be handled.

Kind regards,
Tracey

I have to either pay through my own Pay Pal account (don't have one; don't want one) - can't use theirs; or send a bank draft at a cost of an additional $40. Or go begging to other members to pay for me. EPZ apparently changed its method of payment and now some countries (which means some members) are excluded.

Hi again Dora,

Just in case you missed my earlier message:

I spent 3 days communicating with EPZ and there is nothing they are prepared to do about the flaw.

Dora, you are just ignoring my comment so I will delete any further posts where you are incorrectly stating the situation.

Refer back to the report if you have any further comment, otherwise I will have to disable comments on this or delete the photo.

We have given you 3 ways to pay but you have said no to all of them.

Had you not been so harsh to a member of my team, I would have actually just given you membership in this circumstance as we value your contribution.
That’s for the record, for everyone else to see we’ve tried our best to help.

Regards,
Tracey

I really feel for you Dora. After all the the hassle you have had trying to bury your brother from Costa Rica it’s understandable you feel frustrated not being able to renew your subscription as you normally do.

I hope the new life on the tree is a symbol of getting your membership renewed.

Take care

I find this post rather sad.
First the problems that Dora has had in paying but more so by the replies that she has had here.
First: - Please don’t air your frustrations on the site - please continue using the internal report system where your complaint will continue to be handled.
Second: - Dora, you are just ignoring my comment so I will delete any further posts where you are incorrectly stating the situation.

This all sounds very heavy handed way to deal this situation.
Tracy uses the word frustrations which in itself says why Dora is posting her comments here.

You are not privy to the communications we have had via the reports system, where we have tried our hardest to help, and of course have been sympathetic to Dora’s situation.
Hence my post.
Taken out of context, that’s why you think it sounds ‘heavy handed’.

I really miss your posts, Dora.
I'm not privy - nor should I be - to what has happened ... but, it's so sad that your images are no longer gracing this wonderful site.
I hope you are keeping well and I hope to 'see' you soon.
Best wishes to you and take care,
