Search and iCloud Update

Please note the search engine will not return the latest data for most of today pending the completion of several important upgrades.

Update on iCloud Email Delivery

We have confirmed that iCloud is performing “silent” drops meaning no one, not us, nor the intended users, are notified of any problem with email delivery. Everything goes into a black hole.

Our job is to deliver the email to iCloud servers (think of it as the Postal Office) which we successfully do but we have no control at what iCloud does in the final leg of inbox delivery (think of it as the Postal Delivery Man). With iCloud’s silent filter currently in place, you will never know what emails you might have lost.

Issue has been forward to relevant Apple engineering team and they will attempt to resolve it on their end.

    Umm… that sounded a little confusing, but I guess that means we might have lost alerts in the post? I guess I’ll have to have a look of FF.NET to check then. Thanks for the heads up.

      What that means is iClould (i.e. Apple) is a bad postal worker.

        Then don’t use Apple. I bet its Sky High prices. I bet you could get better and cheaper service elsewhere.

        Yahoo does it’s job well, same with Gmail. I recommend those for a replacement.

    I agree with princessbinas. Yahoo is a good choice.

    Well… this is what we’ve tried telling the people who voiced their support for iCloud and tried blaming it on the site admins all along.

    Does this affect people who use iCloud with another email provider such as Outlook?

    This has happened to me for most of today and I use outlook. Hopefully this problem will be resolved soon. -_- It’s really hard for me to keep up with forums when this happens.

    Is ever going to add the ability to make a ‘series’ of your stories, to make it easier for people to read them?

    • yemi hikari

      That would be nice. If they do implement it I would like something that would lessen the temptation for some writers to stick all of their stories into a series even though they aren’t a series. I’m talking about the writers who will do anything to get more reviews and see it as a way to get more reviews.

        Maybe when they do that, they can also get rid of people who get other GREAT stories taken of because of “adault content, violence, and suggestive themes.”
