Title: Anyone getting any emails from the forums, wiki, etc?
Post by: x4000 on May 01, 2016, 08:31:36 PM
I got one from wordpress today, but I'm thinking that these are busted in general at the moment. :/

I've not had any lately...but I've never had any at all!

Sorry I can't give more. Could always shoot a dummy email.

No problem.  It's not working for me still, although I just updated the settings.  Can someone reply here, and we'll see if I get emailed?

Thanks!

Also HOLY CRAP! It took in the excess of 40 seconds to post that reply. And it kicked my back to "post new topic" instead of the thread view. What the heck?

Hmm, not sure what that was about.  It is possibly fixed now, though -- emails were not fixed before.

I had that happen a few minutes ago over in the "Not a Velociraptor" thread.

Well, it posted instantly (I think?), but I was shunted to "start a new thread" rather than the forum I'd been in.

Edit:
just did it for this post, and did take 40 seconds.

Edit #2:
I attempted to report this thread (http://www.arcengames.com/forums/index.php/topic,18731.msg0.html#new) ("I don't think our favorite space dragon needs counseling") and after an inordinately long time I ended on a page that I didn't have access to.

Okay, thanks for the note.  I'm still not getting emails, so I'm not sure what's up here.

Replies still take forever to make, and kick you out to "new topic" after posting.

Blah -- not doing it for me, but also not sending emails.  I have a feeling the two are related.

Any better now?

Lets test!

Edit: Nope :(

No one should be getting super crazy things like that going on. If they continue, please reply here and please for the love of everything don't touch anything on pages you don't have access to. :)

P.S. this should test the email.

Nope, no emails.

In the past I think we've seen it get really slow when it was trying to send an email but failing to for whatever reason.

The post action indeed take an abnormal amount of time. However, modifying a post works in a second. Strange.

Yeah, the slow posting was a bit annoying. :D

Good question. I am now subscribed to notifications on this thread.

Everyone should get emails now. I'm not entirely sure what the problem was, but I think I have a clue. If I'm right, it shouldn't happen again (Unless we move servers or Hostwinds screws with stuff, then all bets are off).

The only email I ever remember getting from this site is a single email letting me know about the first AI War 2 Kickstarter, which I was already backing at the time.

We try to avoid e-mailing you unless you specifically sign up for it. And apparently the server tries to avoid emailing you in general.

I probably did sign up for emails. At least I got another email about the kickstarter that I am already backing and checking multiple times every day nearly being over.

Post by: WolfWhiteFire on December 17, 2016, 10:57:09 AM
Yeah, just checked, I am signed up for emails. With the exception that I figured I didn't want every user on the forum to be able to send emails to me.

Yep, in your case you wouldn't have gotten any other emails anyway. You have to request to be notified by a thread, at which point you get emails when someone makes a reply to it. You did get the email about the kickstarter, which was the only one you were technically signed up for. And as for users emailing you, it is done so that they don't get to see your email (unless you enable that individually), but I can definitely see why getting emails from users would be annoying.
