Email Notifications from Campaign Forums

edited August 2014 in General Discussion
Has enyone else who uses their CAMPAIGN FORUMS been having the same issue. When someone makes an entry in the HOUSE FORUM section, it does not send out an email notification automatically like it used to. I have found a way round this by going back into the saved post, unclicking EMAIL ALL then clicking it again and SAVING it a second time. I don't mind doing this, and therefore I can ensure that my players see my posts, but they don't have the same tenacity (NOR SHOULD THEY INDEED) so that I am not really on top of answering their posts because I don't get an email notification.

If there is already a ticket regarding this issue, could someone please direct me to it so I can add my voice. If other people have noticed the same, but there is no ticket, please let me know in this thread, and I will set one up with some support from my esteemed colleagues.

    Email notifications are so buggy on forum posts that I can't count on them anymore. Similar issues to what you have described.

    The best answer I got from them on a ticket was that it was a yahoo rejection thing.

    Now I just schedule myself to search each forum for players posts.

    Ah, SkidAce, unfortunately for us all, you have stumbled on our best hope/option.... I will do likewise, but am still interested to hear from others re this issue. If it seems common enough, it may still yet be worth a ticket.....

    Yeah, half the time people are getting notifications when they shouldn't, the other half they aren't getting them when they should.

    It all makes much more sense once you give in to the madness...

    Aiieeeee!!!

    Hey Basileus, I just thought, isn't that what Legolas said when he first saw the balrog (in the book - not the film)????

    I'm having major issues too with forum post notifications in my campaign... That is so frustrating, I must send a proper mail with the link to the post, or a SMS reminder to check it out ...

    It's been a problem for 3 or 4 days now .

    Last time it happened they had to wait for someone to reset something on the server (I think).

    Not sure what's up this time...

    It's been an unresolved issue since I first posted this in August 2014.

    I just live with it. The method I described at the beginning usually still works though.

    Still, it's been a long while unresolved.

    Agreed - I honestly feel the worst for those unable to login or reset their password because of these email issues.
