Am I the only one who is not receiving notifications when someone has posted to a thread that they are subscribed to?
I just had 11 come through all at once! Proir to that I hadnt had any for days.Separate problem; I spend my life signing in to these forums! I have the 'keep me signed in' box ticked but I still have to sign in at least once a day, often 2 or 3 times. Gets tiring after a bit, why wont it remember? I'm on many forums for this and that but this is the only one that has this level of amnesia!
We have fixed the issue with email notifications. This will have resulted in a flood of messages, as your outstanding notifications were delivered. That in turn might be why some of you (including me) got duplicates. Please post here if that continues to happen in the coming days.
I agree that your sign-in times out too soon, and that on many systems it would last days or weeks, whereas here it's less than an hour. We have plans for that, but it's a fairly central part of our systems.
Thank you WebPM, just had 11 email notifications,
also the views count has suddenly shot up on most threads,
just picture issues, especially why no matter what size or file extension when in PM area just doesn’t work.
If anyone can tell me in simple terms how to check my picture file size on an iPad tablet I would be grateful.
I have looked around for an app to resize them but not yet took the plunge.
Doesn’t answer why sometimes it will allow an image but then the same image won’t Upload another time?
The sudden vanishing replies when still typing must be as you say a time out issue, If the forum thinks you are inactive it cuts you off in order to minimise and speed up access to others,
Looking good so far. Thank you.
Hi WebPM I am not receiving email notifications, I have checked my settings and all are ok, no spam in any folders, no junk, and no email updates/ notifications since 28:02:2018,
last email notification received was this one,
The very fact there are now four separate threads pointing out variouse issues with this forum is proof enough things need looking into as to just what kind of service is being offered,?
I regret that I am not sure what more we can do about this. I would suggest that you contact your email provider, including a copy of the last notification that you received. The problem that we had previously involved the system for sending email notifications stopping entirely, so that the notifications became queued on the Community server, but were never sent. That has not happened again - firstly, others are receiving notifications, and secondly, we have put an alert in place so that we would know quickly if the issue were to recur.
However, emails are a complex area. Some estimates suggest that 60% of global email is spam. I have heard higher estimates. Faced with this, email providers do many different things to avoid the costs of processing all those messages, and the nuisance caused by delivering them to you. Putting some messages in a spam/junk folder is just the last line of defence, and not the whole story. They may for example refuse altogether to accept mail from some sources, irrespective of its contents (think of declining delivery of a package without even opening it, just because of the source address on the outside).
If I am correct, then the feedback from you that messages of this type are useful should help your provider to refine their systems - but you'll realise that they probably get a large number of such customer complaints, and have limited resource to deal with them.
I can see no reason why we would be sending notifications to others and not to you, and you have checked your settings. Therefore, I do believe that it is the process of delivering mail, after it has left us, that is the issue - unless of course there has been a change in your email address, but that seems unlikely.
Still no email notifications, I do however recieve many emails direct from NAS promoting events and news items, I would assume the sender address to be the same, checked and rechecked my settings and all are checked as accept, a tick in every box, I do not expect anything to be done about this, strange I had one massive influx of emails when the settings were “ fixed” and then nothing after them..
I've only just noticed this thread. I used to get notifications when i first joined the forum and then without altering my settings, they stopped. This makes it hard to find replies from people that i would like to answer, particularly on long complicated threads. I do still get some emails from the site, even some notifications sometimes but not all. There seems to be no logic to it.
This is the Thread designated by WebPM to write to, concerning EMail Notifications, about One Month ago...
Yet this Thread was begun by "AspieMum" over 7 Years ago...
Anyone reading, who still has such troubles, WebPM (not NAS) said to Post here...
(Sarcasm:...This way, NAS can ignore us more than once...??)
Hi DC is it actually worth typing any issues in here, spreading all the issues into various places just makes it harder to find the right place to say anything.
And of coarse ignoring is the way it goes, maybe we should have bets on how many days before this gets any attention?
take car my friend,
