Thanks for the 200 email notifications

Recommended Posts

Just had my email inbox fill up with notifications for every post ever created in the announcements section 🤔

EDIT: And they're STILL coming. About 250, over last 5 hours 🙄

Notifications have been hit-or-miss lately.  I haven't got any in about two weeks.  Are you getting old ones you've read already?  Dave should see this thread and inform us mods what's up and we'll inform everyone else (or he'll just inform everyone, he does things like that).

But, from someone who can't do anything about it, sorry for the deluge.

I'm getting one for every thread ever started in the announcements section.

A small selection (there's 212 in total, so far):

You would be getting these notifications because you are set to follow the announcements forum when there are new posts ... and for some reason, every single announcement in there has gone and cloned itself thereby creating a "new" message.  Chances are that the emails have already been queued for sending but will see if there is a kill switch somewhere.

The experts are all in bed at the moment, but given that this did not seem to happen to any of the early announcements or to other forum areas I suspect it was the "Mr G" announcement robot going nuts on reposting for some reason.  It has been a little cantankerous of late. @Ben CCleaner is, amongst other things, our resident robot wrangler and he will check to make sure that it hasn't become self-aware and planning to go Skynet on all of us.

Well it does have a habit of sending 2 email notifications for any new post there, but 200 (or 212 to be precise) is a little OTT 😃

Just an assumption but perhaps you're getting two because someone later edits the annoucement with the checksums/hashes (MD5, etc.,) of the downloads.

Months ago I got so tired of seeing notifications in my email that I set up a spam filter for them so they go directly into the spam folder and don't consume any of my allocated lowly 2 or 3 MB amount on my free email since trying to configure my settings on the forum are completely ignored and always send them. But as of late I haven't been getting hardly any.

You should be able to stop it by turning off your 'follow' for the Announcements sub-forum:

Go to the Announcements forum and click on the 'Follow' box.

Then either - 'Do not send me any notifications' - or  'change how the notification' is sent and turn off the email option.
