Stop it! You make me shy
 
And don't worry if your primary email is with Yahoo or Hotmail or whoever, it's really easy to transfer everything over.
 
Monika, what's your bug?
 
+Tom Voute G+ doesn't allow me to add  more contacts, despite the number is far below 5ooo. So Jaana led me to the Gmail contacts category "weitere Kontakte" = "Other contacts" to keep it clean.
So I cleaned it down from 400 to 20, but still no contacting is possible (even after restart the PC).
So I'm working on to find a solution ....
 
Ah, is this since a day or two? If so, give it some rest for a day. It should be over in a day.
 
+Tom Voute Well, the contacts bug is since 3 months.
The cleaning on Gmail I did this morning. So I'm gonna wait till tomorrow for further research, thanks Tom :-)
 
+Jaana Nyström Thanks a lot!
Some steps I have worked through already, many more to check out .... ;-)
I will report the results here.
 
Thx Jaana... Excellent collection! Definitely something to share with others. 
 
Cleaned the "other contacts" to zero ... Awaiting tomorrow's results ...
 
Good morning on this rainy Sunday +Jaana Nyström !
Sorrily no - my contacts are not working again ....
The " other contacts" are Zero, and I'm uncircling inactives steadily ...
The red banner seems to stick to my profile like a glue ;-)
 
Hey I just downloaded this gmail app.. And I am confused on how to check my mail can you assist me?
 
Gmail has screwed up things so much I am just not interested in new features anymore. 

The new compose is appalling, we are exploring alternatives for our businesses. It feels like it’s the right time for a new player to release a high quality cloud email and storage service. One that doesn’t make the mistake of being stubborn and ignoring its users.

I do genuinely believe Google is going to suffer from these issues. One because they are serious, two because they won’t take them seriously. Big mistake. Everything comes to an end, and whilst I’ve been a huge support of Google and Gmail for such a long time, I want to support something new.

Google feels like an arrogant organisation to me now.
 
Thanks for this Jaana, re-commenting in, I hope, the right place! I was noting that you couldn't share from the blog and that my two embed attempts yesterday caused a big spike in traffic to not just those posts but for other posts on my blogs.
 
+Paul Stickland Yes, sharing is not possible directly. I have also added the link to the original post in my two latest blog posts. And an image for the thumbnail. :-)
 
I must get up to speed, somehow I shared your original post with my now deleted comment. Bit of a sleep famine here, sorry.
 
+Mike Allton On Google+ nothing stays hidden...  :D With the excellent search even the older posts get found out.
 
A bit off topic right now, but still important:
There are people reporting about their unability to contact/circle new plussers, what is my bug, too. Nothing found for solution so far!
