That explains it. We don’t use them very often, and would not normally think about them. Glad to hear that MO fixed it.

But the problem is solved by now. It was a “fault” on behalf M.O. They had problems with the umlauts I use for some of my localities (German language!). It is fixed now.

Reboot is good

We must solve this problem. The pictures are important future reference for me. What operating system are you using?

Have you installed all of the updates? What virus protection are you using? Is it up-to-date? Do you have a virus?

The multiple browsers could be conflicting somehow. It would be best to uninstall everything you don’t need (choose one) before starting the updates.

Any resident programs like games or server applications or special file sharing that could conflict? Get rid of those too for now. Clean off everything that you do not absolutely need, run a good virus detection scan and any other test you can think of. Then update the operating system and the web browser. Reboot and try again.

And again I could not answer

to your comment via my mail and had to open M.O. separately.
Usually I use Opera, but right now I tried I.Explorer, Opera and Mozilla FireFox and the same problems in all three of them. I cannot explain anymore. Right in the beginning in 2009 I had a similar problem but not to that extent. It worked properly till yesterday. Today I made a reboot of my system but the same again.
Darn it I have a lot of pictures to upload!

What web browser are you using?

I had trouble with MS Internet Explorer on my home computer until I upgraded to Google Chrome. It works better. No more problems with MO. In the extreme bottom left of this page you will see what MO wants: FireFox.

Ok, as said try again if you find new fruitbodies in spring.

I have problems with M.O. right at the moment. I could not open the link to your observation but had to open M.O. with a different browser. And cannot upload new species (new to this page)!
You have problems too? It seems I am the only one around who has?

That is a bit of a relief to hear.

There are some fungal fragments of course, but at this age they are a bit of a mess. I did not see anything that looked like a spore. The diamonds (which sometimes appear rhombohedral) and the clearly moving little guys left me thinking that I may have a true curiousity here. I have no idea what I was seeing. It rained heavily here yesterday, so I know all of this was released in the wild and is a process that is going on continuously. All I did was to scrape a bit onto the slide with the tip of an exacto knife, add water, place a cover slip, and squish it around. Instant life.

I cannot see any fungal structures in there,

I am seduced to call this some alga or it is tilt. It has some similarity with Terana but I do not think it is. Try again with fresh material if possible.
