1aaa..... 'wrong Verification Code'....[how To 'get Around' The 'wrong Verification Code' Message On Poemhunter] - Poem by Bri Edwards

If, like me, you've had the problem: 'wrong verification code',
I have a suggestion for you. May I be so bold?
When on Poemhunter.com your message or comment fails to be sent,
and your frustration and anger at that failure you desperately need to vent,
just follow these steps, suggested to me by my wife most wise.
They should work or there's something wrong with my explanation, I'd surmise.

IF YOU DO YOUR TYPING, ENTER CODE, HIT 'SUBMIT' but GET THE 'DREADED MESSAGE',
do this, which YOU may have already figured out if you are of LESS AGE (than me) .
[If you keep on trying the original code, it will never work. Your time will be poorly spent.]
Go back one page to where your typing has been left.......Unsent.]

Then left click and HIGHLIGHT text; at edge of text (in white) right click and select COPY.
(I hope these instructions are clear enough for you. I hope they're not sloppy.)
Go back one page then, I believe, and do what's needed to find an empty box
in which to write a new message or comment; (my wife is crafty like a fox) :
left click in the 'empty box' and then right click and click on PASTE.

Your unsent text should now appear; (your time has not been a waste) .
You should now have a NEW verification code which never seems to fail.

Good Luck! !
p.s. I helped another poet learn to EDIT her poem so she could make a correction I suggested. I may write a poem about that, once the idea I've digested.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

this is all true. i left out the part about me asking poemhunter.com for help months ago and receiving a response. but, not being too smart, i was unable to or didn't bother trying to do what they suggested. then came my wife's help. i have since (just yesterday) learned that one of my poet friends had a recent frustrating time because of 'wrong verification code' message and he 'lost' all he had typed (or, i suspect, he thought he had lost it and gave up as i have done in the past) .
FLASH! ! another poet has come to me with an easier method! !
1 from 'wrong v. code' page GO BACK
2 RIGHT CLICK NEXT TO the 'old' verification number; this will bring up
menu
3 on the menu (at least on this computer) find RELOAD and click it; this
will give you a NEW verification code to use. (if it doesn't, try
clicking reload again)
4 enter 'new' verif. code and hit submit
5 good luck

==============================================

NEW INFORMATION: (ADDED JUNE 2016, in response to a comment by Tom Billsboroug)

, let me say more. i have had little trouble in a long time with 'wrong verification code', but, oddly enough, i started having to take 'evasive? action' again a few times recently.

there is a simpler method to get around the 'dreaded message: 'wrong.....code'. go to the page on which you have something to send and a 'wrong or useless code' in the 'code number box'............. Positioning the cursor near the 'box', RIGHT click. this should bring up a box with a small menu in it. if you are lucky the first time, you should get a menu which has across the top (above the words) a set of for (4) symbols, left to right:

an arrow head pointing to the left

an arrow head pointing to the right'

**a circling-around arrow 'moving' clockwise...............[i think this means 'renew' or replace one thing with another];

a 5-pointed star

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
**if you place cursor over the clockwise arrow, the notation 'reload current page' appears nearby. LEFT click the circling arrow and the verification number in the little code box will change to give you a new verification code. TRY THE NEW CODE. good luck.

======================

sometimes a different menu appears and i just repeat the clicking process until the menu comes up with the symbols i mentioned above.

=======================
i have also found that if i type a comment on a poem and then type the verification code into the empty box provided BUT don't hit 'submit', and, instead, add to my comment, the original verification code needs to be changed using the above process.

    Hi Bri
    Wish I'd read this before my little effort. Will experiment after printing off your or your good lady's instructions!

    MY REVISED [March 12th,2015] POET'S NOTE:

    the menu no longer has a choice of RELOAD (and hasn't for quite some time) . NOW IT HAS A SYMBOL WHICH LOOKS LIKE AN ARROW CHASING ITSELF IN A CIRCLE. hit that circle-arrow.

    ALSO, recently PH has sometimes not even required a verification code, at least not to submit a poem comment. goofy, huh?

    I don't need to know this Bri, I normally copy my comment elsewhere. If it tries to give me the wrong verification code skcollob, I just go back the the poem and paste the comment in the box. Easy and pain free. Have been doing it from the start. Have been getting wrong code messages about 30% of the time and many have been on the same poems. Why didn't YOU come up with the plan? ? ?

    I must say that I am equally or more intelligent than your intelligent wife! (joking) I had found out this method much earlier! Initially I too had been equally frustrated! But to have composed a poem on it is something unthought of! !

    Interesting! ! (Report) Reply
