Poll: What stops you registering on this blog site?

Total views 784 

I am curious to know why blog site visitors stop short of actually registering for Free membership, so I thought I’d create a quick poll to find out a little more, as answers to all these concerns are explained on the Home and Privacy Policy pages:

What stops you registering on this blog site? (1 or 2 answers only)

  • Can I get answers to SAS programming questions? (0%, 0 Votes)
  • Is there any useful SAS information there? (0%, 0 Votes)
  • Privacy/security concerns (0%, 0 Votes)

I will use the results of the poll to improve the blog site.

Do you have children who would benefit from mathematics, spelling or logic practice? I have an offer for Christmas, New Year and Spring 2022 and it is FREE!!

Total views 184 

I know everyone is offering Black Friday discounts, but I live in the UK and traditionally we had Boxing Day (the day after Christmas Day) sales. However, again 2021 has not been a normal year, and it is ending with worries for everyone, so yet again I’m offering free access to my Educational Games membership, but this time from now until 31Mar2022 for all applicants.

It is not really free, of course, as I’d like feedback about any of the 7 different educational web app games included in the package, but I’ll be happy to extend the free period by an extra month each time for anyone that sends me constructive comments about the games. I would like to develop these games further, so your comments will help to set the direction for my updates. See my blog post “A little more to help the children learn – no SAS involved!” for more details.

Note that Programming and Recruiter memberships are not compatible with the Educational Games membership, so if you have these membership levels, then I would strongly recommend that you create a new blog profile for this offer, and I will make sure that no marketing emails are sent to the new profiles from the blog site too.

Applications for free access until 31Mar2022 should be emailed to phil@hollandnumerics.org.uk from your blog profile email address.

Merry Christmas and a Safe, Healthy, Happy 2022 (in advance)!………..Phil

New advice when registering as a blog member

Total views 794 

Remember to use your full personal name, not a business name (unless you’ve asked me first), and a full last name is expected and required to complete registration, not “X Y” where your user information is considered to be hiding your identity. If you supply a name like “X Y” then your profile will be set to Pending, which will be deleted automatically after 1 month if not corrected.

NEW: An activation email will be sent to your registered email address to confirm that it is valid. If you do not receive it within a few minutes, then please contact Philip Holland at phil@hollandnumerics.org.uk, as your email address may not have been accepted, but can be corrected.

It is also recommended that you do not use an email address as, or include your company name in, your user name, because user names cannot be changed, but your email address or company might change in the future!

Over the last few weeks I’ve noticed potential customers for my SAS conference papers NEARLY download them from here, and then give up at the last moment. I want to assure you all that:

  1. You will be required to register on this site for free, if you are not already a registered member
  2. You will have to complete a form to say where you live
  3. You will also be sent to a Checkout page
  4. However, you will be charged nothing, as every conference paper download has a price of £0.00!
