I thought it was timely to mention this topic, especially as it is failing again. I have had some recent conversations with the WOW team, and ets say they were not constructive. I advised them of some of the problems I had found, some very annoying, not least the log in procedure and the very poor deisgn of the site to enter data. The usual Met Office repy was forthconing in that they have got nothing wrong with the site and they are very pleased with it. All is working well and the change over to the new site style is now complete. All in the garden is wonderful. Then of course along comes the error with State of Ground and having to input snow!
I was ony allowed two emails after which I was told no one would reply to further mails. So very sad I think.

Mike

Well I cant log in again - I suspect its something to do with cookies and the "Chrome" browser I use. HTTP error 500 this morning. But they should test these things and make sure its all working beforehand.

Now I maybe retired, but I am not sat at home all day waiting for it to work, so it will be another day when the data doesnt get upload at 0900hrs

I do have some issues with wow - the silly name to start with and the fact that any tom dick or harry can upload weather data which may be completely useless.

The main thing is that if you miss inputting a data selection of somekind, it just takes it. Surely if you miss Max Temp, but submit the rest it should flag up and and say before submitting ?

I wouldnt never go back to paper method, but certainly wow needs a good looking at, another gripe would be the amount of things you have to click before you start entering data, metoffice to bothered about passwords and data protection than actually getting the weather data in

I'm using Google Chrome with no problems. Perhaps reinstalling Chrome might help.

I will give that a go BUT - every other site works fine through Chrome its just the Metoffice

Again didnt work this morning, had to use Explorer

Must be something to do with cookies and passwords

Re-installed chrome and worked

BUT didnt work this morning until I cleared by browsing data again - its something to do with this but a problem with Metoffice I think

Does anyone else use roboform to store passwords ?

How do you log into the metsite each day ?

Sounds like a browser problem to me. Need to look back the day it happened maybe you installed an app.
or something go to settings and have a look. You probably know and done this already but you might have missed
something. Good luck.
