MarcR replied to a forum topic Can't log in on iPhone

Be careful upgrading the 4s. Do a quick search on iOS 8.1.1 and the 4s as I thought there were some potential issues. 8.1.1 was supposed to fix them but I thought I read there were still some WiFi bugs.

You might want to try installing and using Chrome instead of Safari just to see if that works.

MarcR replied to a forum topic Can't log in on iPhone

Rosiegirl, I'm on an iPhone 5S using Safari running ios 8.1.1 and have not had much of an issue. I just upgraded from ios 7.x last week and had no problem with that either. So, it doesn't appear to be system wide. I did have an issue after the upgrade with Q remembering my login/password when I logged in but I cleared out that information in my iCloud Keychain (on the Mac) and that has seemed to solve the issue. But I have not been kicked out after clicking on the "Menu" button.

What ios are you running and what version of iPhone? Could it possibly be your cell/wifi connection? Maybe turn off Wifi and try it thru just cellular. Have you completely powered off your phone and restarted it? That may help as well.

MarcR replied to a forum topic Re-submit An Idea?

Yes, you have to copy and paste into a new submission. They used to let you just hit a resub button but they removed it because they wanted people to rethink and/or improve upon the idea before resubbing vs. just hitting the button.

Meaning no offense, the sensor seems to make sense for a limo as you mentioned because it's hard to see that far back but I'm not sure why I would need something like this for my passenger car. I've never had an issue regarding knowing if my back window is fully closed or opened in any of the 16 cars/trucks/minivans/CUV's I ever owned. However, what if it had some type of reminder that the window was open as you are leaving the car? Maybe a proximity sensor tied into a fob on your keychain. If the window is down even a small amount, as soon as you move a few feet from the car it will sound so you will remember to close the window in case it might rain later that day. Just spitballing. Good luck with the idea.

MarcR replied to a forum topic Re-submit An Idea?

Daniel, yes you can resubmit an idea. Just an FYI, once your idea expires, we cannot see it. You can, but the rest of us can't so we can't see what the Window Sensor was or did. I'm surprised that the reason stated was not enough community support. Was the email like a generic "form" letter or was it personalized specifically to your submission? Votes really don't matter and the staff have moved submissions to ER and to Live Eval with both zero or almost no votes (community support) so that's a very surprising reason. Many of us, myself included, never promote our ideas once we submit them to achieve higher vote counts. If the idea is good, it should only matter to the staff as they are the only ones who can move an idea.

One thing to consider from my experience, if your window position sensor is something that you want car makers to install on all vehicles or something that needs a mechanic to install, it probably is not a good fit for Quirky. Also ideas that may need to have government regulation/safety regulation to install and use on your car are probably a no-go as well. If it's a simple aftermarket consumer product that can work with any car and be easily installed and used legally then in my experience that is more in line with the types of products Quirky produces. Either way, good luck.

MarcR replied to a forum topic Sometimes I Quirky so much I forget to eat.

If you think it's addicting now, you should have seen what it was like when they offered influence for voting on new ideas among the other ways they had to earn influence than they have now. My wife would tell me "to stop Quirkin' out" I was on here so much...lol
