  1. I am a woman and do not find this offensive. In fact, I didn't even notice it. I do find it offensive when people try to make something so trivial into a BIG DEAL. https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/83994-where-are-the-women/
  2. Yes!!! The audacity of a company actually wanting to get paid for their work!!! https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/85992-the-mail-conundrum-pay-or-abandon-your-notes/
  3. People have become so accustomed to free software that they have developed a sense of entitlement. Why should they have to PAY for software??? Developers do not often write software wholly because they are being philanthropic and feel inclined to gift the world with a wonderful, useful, FREE piece of software. They do it because they want an income in order to pay their rent, buy groceries and shoes for their children. Most software that has much value has some sort of limitation, unless you pay. Sometimes it's a trial version. Sometimes it's a version with ads. And sometimes, it's a free version with limited features. I do understand it's upsetting when a feature you have been using in one version requires you to upgrade to another version. But it happens ALL THE TIME. I have used ACDSee Photo Manager software for about 15 years. And every year or two, I have to pay for an upgrade b/c there are new features or else b/c the old version doesn't work under my new OS or...whatever. But it is the developer's right to revoke some free features. In fact, any good dev has an obligation to their paying customers (and employees) to do their best to stay profitable. Why? Because the paying users have found value in the software and most times will want to continue to use it and have invested their $$$ in the app by supporting it financially. And of course, the employees want to have a regular income. Most of us do not want to devote a lot of time & energy into our jobs and then not get paid. If the complainers will please note, no one (i repeat NO ONE) has stated you cannot or should not voice your opinion that you are upset by this decision. However, for those of you who show a sense of entitlement (draconian??? seriously???), I would simply say, if it's not worth a years worth of a paid version of Evernote to you, then it would appear that feature really wasn't that useful to you. If money is tight, there are creative ways such as asking family & friends to gift you with a subscription for birthdays, anniversaries or Christmas. Or referring friends in order to get points. And yes, the thread title is laced with drama. It would seem to me if the lack of this one feature on the free version of Evernote is dramatic enough to cause one to abandon Evernote, then one would instead be willing to pay for it. But I'm not into drama... So it boils down to this...if it's worth a few bucks to you, then fine. If not, that's fine too. Good luck with finding an app that better suits your needs.
  4. As per usual, you are making incorrect statements. To reiterate, here's exactly what he said... He does not make the rules, since he is a user here, just like you. But then you already know this. Please stop attributing incorrect statements to other message board users.
  5. Déjà Vu all over again. (Sigh) If you overlook the posts that exist for the sole purpose of insulting users, you may find this thread informative... https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/85924-emailing-to-evernote-now-a-paid-feature/ A word to the few who posted personal attacks in the above thread (or those new to the topic who are so tempted)...I would caution you to refrain from it in this thread so that this one does not get locked...
  6. First, I did not call you silly. I did say leaving an unattended computer running w/o locking it down...is silly, if you have concerns about someone getting into the data on it. And it is. Second, I did not say I could not imagine why an app locker was silly. My statement above clarifies this. Third, if you could set your emotions aside for a moment, you might be able to see that I am not insulting you. I am offering suggestions. And since you seem to be confusing so many issues in this very short thread, it would seem to be even more probable that you are misremembering the password. I don't make this stuff up. Once again...good luck.
  7. We are not talking about shutting down your computer. Locking it does not turn it off. It simply requires a password. This prevents any guests in your home from being able to access the apps and it's silly to not do this, if you leave a computer running. FWIW, it's more probable that you are misremembering the password rather than the software has decided the correct one is incorrect. Good luck.
  8. Hehehe...haven't seen a Rickroll in quite a long time.
  9. Please search I can't imagine why it's impractical to lock down your computer. Mine shuts down after so many minutes of inactivity. It takes about three seconds to sign back in & IMO, it's ridiculous to leave a computer running in your home and not have it lock after a while or not lock it when you walk away. Authorized family members can easily & quickly unlock it in a matter of seconds. Another option is Gameprotector. It's free. Please Google it or search the board on it. I have posted about it in the past. As you can see, when using a password/PIN, it's important to make sure you know & remember the password/PIN. Good luck.
  10. An Evernote employee actually posted early on in this thread and posed a question to YOU. Subsequent to his post, you have returned to post six (so far) posts for the sole reason of insulting other users. And yet you have never once addressed the Evernote employee's question to you. It's pretty clear who the troll is and who is the one who needs to get a life, "man".
  11. It's great that you are so impressed with yourself. I would expect someone of your (supposed) caliber to exhibit more class & intelligence. But again, whining b/c you can no longer use a feature for FREE is childish, So is calling other, well respected users of the board, trolls. I suggest you become better informed about the contributors before making knee jerk judgments, just because you didn't like the answer you got. Good luck with Onenote.
  12. Free users who complain that they cannot (or can no longer) use a feature that has been moved to a paid account are whiners, IMO. If you like an app and you use it often, one should be willing to pay for it so that the devs will continue to develop the app and still be able to pay their rent & buy groceries. I'm guessing that may be what elicited SebR's sarcastic response. If you are not willing to pay for a particular app, then most of us don't give a darn that it's causing you to move to another app that is free & works for you. In fact, it's your right and obligation to use what best suits your needs both work flow & financial. Excellent response. SebR.. I take it that you are an aspiring Evernote Exec..... I have always been taught that customers opinions are something to be valued.... possibly not the case here... I send 1-2 emails to Evernote pm - and there is no value paying for Premium features that are not used... What value does Evernote get from me?... Some may ask... I 'have' been a strong advocate and proponent of Evernote and regularly spruik its features. Thanks saifahmed2 I too will investigate the use of OneNote... SebR is just another user, just like you & me & most of the rest of us here. Evernote employees are identified by the words "Evernote employee" in the profile info that is displayed on each post. That's one of those "defenses when you have no defense". Any successful message board is powered by users, who volunteer their time & energy to helping others. Notice the operative word is 'volunteer'. Trying to minimize someone's contributions by intimating they have nothing better to do is very lame.
  13. I'm not surprised at all. Compare the essence/flavor of Evernote in the past couple of years to the Evernote of the previous four years (although I beta tested Evernote in 2008, I didn't really get into Evernote until mid 2009). There has been a huge disconnect, during the past couple of years on several fronts. IMO, it was just a matter of time.
  14. Ok. I still find it odd they are working on wallpaper rather than long time issues that directly affect the usability of the product (for a "100 year company" - Phil Libin's words) such as, well...let me think...scalability, security, etc.
  15. I don't recall seeing a single request for this on the board. Perhaps I've overlooked them??? Odd that the single "much requested" thing they choose to add has absolutely no impact on the product - it's wallpaper...
  16. Try deleting some of the notebooks using the web client. Then try syncing.
  17. Pretty ridiculous if you ask me. Are we children!? Today the F word is so common it has become useless as a swear word; few people give it a second thought when it is used. PC has gotten out of control!Are we children? This is the internet where anyone can be here and anyone can pose as someone they are not. I have seen some pretty nasty posts by supposed adults. I agree that PC has gotten out of control and yes, the F word is very common. That doesn't mean a board owner must allow it or allow potentially offensive words. As users of this board, we should respect that.
  18. Well, as you can see, my use of the word g-a-y got bleeped out...
  19. That word is often considered a slur against the ***** community. There are other acceptable words that get "bleeped" out since the filter can't determine the context used. IE. I think these words get bleeped: c-r-a-p, s-c-r-e-w. It's certainly easy enough to edit your post to use a different word.
  20. Quite simply, because they choose to not have one.
  21. Mata Hari (aka minkowski) is always contentious with people who reply to his posts. He has often posted how much he hates Evernote and even prefers Word over Evernote (???). So it would seem his participation on this board is to simply be a troll. As Gaz stated, this topic has been discussed before and Evernote has made it abundantly clear, they are not interested in having feature polling. (Please use the search function, if you care to read the existing threads). That's not to say they wouldn't change their mind. But there is nothing to support that theory, especially since Evernote has always been very close to the vest about everything. Since they don't publish their roadmap or ETAs, it's doubtful they would be interested in feature polling any time soon. One more thing... Gaz is a long time user of Evernote and this board. He has a realistic feel for what Evernote may or may not do. It is much better to let someone know if a feature is likely to be added or not. That way, the user can make an informed decision on whether they want to continue to use Evernote or not or adopt a workaround that is viable for them.
  22. Poser. Agreed. The user's profile does not indicate he/she is an Evernote employee. Plus, to date, Evernote has never offered phone support except I think Evernote Business did...but am not sure.
  23. Version 2 files are definitely NOT compatible with later versions of Evernote. If you cannot find a copy of V2 through something like Filehippo, then it would seem your only option is to upgrade from a free Evernote account, if you haven't already, and submit a support ticket. I'm not 100% sure they would be able to get you a copy, since that version has not been supported for over six years. But if you do get a copy, then you would need to also get a copy of 3.x in order to migrate from the 2.x database. And there may even be another update you'd need to do, since I think the 3.x database is not compatible with the latest versions, either.
  24. Your opinion on Gaz (and all the other fellow users you take issue with) & his (their) posts is not helpful to users. Once again, please stop nitpicking on every leetle, teeny, tiny thing you don't like about other users. It takes the thread off topic and is not helpful at all.
