I'm sorry that you're having trouble with Silver State Schools FCU and Well Fargo Dealer Services in Mint, I understand how inconvenient it can be when a financial institution isn't syncing. While SSSFCU currently shows no error, I do see that there have been sporadic errors over the past few weeks. The errors we see during that time are rather unusual, so unfortunately I can't help much with identifying the cause. Please use the Contact Mint form to open a ticket so our support team can further investigate and assist. Alternatively, you can use our Chatservice during available hours.
WFDS was showing an error for us not finding any open/active accounts under your login credentials, but now is showing a connectivity issue due to bank maintenance. That should clear up within a few days, but if you still have trouble by this weekend then please open a ticket for that as well, using one of the options above.
People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:
Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
