  4. AOL and Publishing Truthful Articles

    On the Welcome page there was an article today about how you might have household items that are worth thousands of dollars to collectors and you don't even realize what you might have in your home. The article was written by someone named Gur Tirosh.

    In the article, this person said that Corningware pieces are worth big money and that if you have some pieces, you can get thousands of dollars possibly on eBay. I happen to have three pieces of Blue Cornflower pattern Corningware, so I got all excited from what I read. I went to eBay just to…

  6. Comments points

    I like to post comments to the News articles in Welcome. Since you started the points thing I noticed my points in less than two hours can vary from 1 to 5.6k. Why is that? It seems a few people like my comments but one "censor" has it in for me. Does this happen to others and when will it be fixed?

  7. Please fix my problem with welcome

    This is my sixth time to get these problems fixed. I have over 20k reputation points. When I post it shows as 1. I am no longer getting notified when someone likes or replies to my post. I even tried posting a comment that AOL found problematic hoping to get a reply, but nothing happened.I was told after several phone calls that you are the only one who can fix this.I pay for AOL and have for several years, but appear to be getting ignored..

  9. I just downloaded what I thought was the new AOL Desktop Gold, but I was in for a surprise. The Version No. is 11,2510, and I'm sorry to

    I just downloaded what I thought was the new AOL Desktop Gold, but I was in for a surprise. The Version No. is 11.2510, and it has the look of the AOL that I started with way back in the 1980's. Your latest update calls for a much higher version no., so I was wondering why the number I received is different.
    I will appreciate a response to my feedback.

    Thank you,
    ** Xavier

  10. adobe flash

    Can AOL please stop with the reminder that Adobe Flash is not installed? Flash was discontinued by Adobe at the end of 2020. They recommend that it should be uninstalled, since it is (was) a buggy product and a security risk.

  12. Screen doesn't return to home (Welcome) page after internet search page is closed.

    What the f....?? I have to reopen the "Welcome" page after using the "Search" bar. The "Welcome" page then returns to the beginning (page - 1), not the page that I left (i.e. page 40). So now I need to scroll thru all the pages to get back to where I left off. ****** me off. I'd rather use Internet Explorer or other solution, and cancel AOL.

  17. Allow users to turn off ITK

    Allow users to select whether ITK runs or not. The feature is very annoying as it is visually distracting.
