Email Alerts Update

26 Mar

We are still working on the email delivery problem. Please be patient while we sort this out and it is going to take the better part of today to resolve this.

For now, PM and Forum alerts have been disabled. Review/Story/Follow/Fav alerts are being delivered with best effort but some users might still be effected until a final fix is in place.

    Thank you very much for all of your continued effort in maintaining this site. The fact that you interact with all of us so much, giving us many updates on what’s going on when there are bugs that need to be fixed means a lot. There are a lot of sites that seem to ignore the feedback they receive, or just read a particular sentence within a comment and then provide a response that really doesn’t coincide with said comment.

    It’s very heartening to see our comments and concerns being acknowledged first-hand. So, with that said, don’t worry about how long it takes to fix the email alert. The fact that you know about it and have informed us that you’re working to resolve it, is good enough for me.

    Hopefully I speak for everyone when I say that. It’s sad to see people yelling at you guys when it’s clear you’re working your hardest just to satisfy our needs.

    So again, thank you!

      “Please be patient while we sort this out and it is going to take the better part of today to resolve this.”

      I don’t understand why you’re being so rude They specifically mentioned that it’s going to take a while, and to be patient. Is being patient really so hard?

        I think we should just ignore him. Everything he’s ever written on the blog posts (from what I’ve seen) have always been negative in some way and not once has he ever been polite with his complaints. I’m starting to think he’s just trolling with nothing better to do anyways.

        @ MMC – I agree with your assessment.

      holmes4ever – if you’re getting yours, then why the heck are you complaining?

        They blocked them for everyone while they are fixing it. It doesn’t justify the rudeness, though

    @ MMC – Yeah, that’s what it’s starting to seem like. I don’t understand how anyone can still be so ungrateful, especially with this most recent blog update.

    Oh thank you very much, fanfiction staff! I love how all of you are doing the best to fix the site and make it better for us. Thank you again for the new update and I hope that all gets fixed soon enough that people won’t start to complain again 🙂

    I was getting everything until about two hours ago now I don’t seem to be getting anything. Just thought i’d let you know thank you for the continued effort in trying to work everything out.

      I recommend that you read the post before commenting. Also, do you think it’s possible that that there’s just nothing to get at the moment?

    Just curious…

    When everything is resolved will alerts be resent? I just want to make sure my story watchers all get the update I happened to post right when the sh*t hit the fan. Just my luck. :/

    Thanks for telling me this. I was wondering what was going on.

    actually Nowistand I did miss at least one review and a few chapter updates I know because I checked before I posted and I posted in a nice and polite manner unlike you, you’re nothing but rude.

    • yemi hikari

      03/26/2013 at 5:51 pm

      Sorry, but nothing they said was impolite. The site admins made a few things very clear in the post. First, they already know that a few site members are being effected in the regards you are being effected. Second, they clearly stated it may take all day to get it fixed. What is the point of telling them something they clearly have stated they already know?

    • nowistand

      03/27/2013 at 4:07 am

      If you missed a review and chapter updates, you could’ve stated it. And as Yemi said, I wasn’t rude. It didn’t sound like you read it since you were stating the obvious.

    Was hoping someone could also fix the Traffic Stats. It’s no longer possible to do a sort by #views or #visitors.

    Thank you for all of the hard work and efforts you are putting into making your site run as smoothly as possible. Even though there area few ungrateful whiners out there, the majority of us really DO appreciate all of the hard work.

      I have experienced the same problems today and yesterday. Just wondering if the alerts have a problem again.

    Apparently the glitch has come up again. Its been a day and I havent recevied alerts for pms, story updates or anything. Im not the only one facing this problem. There are a TON of writers who are facing the same problem. Please do find out what is wrong as its been like this for a day or more. I even emailed fanfiction support team but still havent received reply. Hope this issue is resolved soon.

    Is it just me here now? Because since yesterday I haven’t gotten any emails from here. I never got one for the chapter I posted or the new review. I’ve checked my email on other devices aside from my phone but it’s not loading properly. I’ve gotten other emails though like spam and such, just not the messages I actually want to see.
    I hate when my email glitches like this, if it’s not that though, but the site. It’d be good to know.

    Like Crystal, I too have noticed that I have not been receiving e-mail updates since sometime on May 11th, I checked my spam filter and email address but did not see an error there. Is there a new email update issue?

    I noticed that a few updated stories were not sent as alerts to me. It seemed to have worked for an hour or two, but it seemed to have crashed again.

    How much longer do you think it’s going to take for it to be fixed??
