Forum Maintenance Announcement
« on: August 29, 2012, 09:27:29 AM »
We have the tech guy Brian coming in this morning (probably) to do a maintenance upgrade on the forum.  The forum will be offline for a short while (probably).  Hopefully, this will fix the issues that you've noted recently.

OK, that was painless.  I hope we start getting notifications etc now.  Please report if you continue to have problems with the forum.

It seems the Notifications error is amended.  I'm receiving Notifications, and I assume all members are also.

I checked your profile page for Notifications and you didn't have the Send Notifications checked for topics.  I checked it, but you should go to the that page and read the options to make sure you want the changes I made.

To everyone not receiving notifications currently:

The problem with notifications has been fixed.  The nature of the problem/fix is such that 1) everyone's notifications function was fixed at the same time and 2) the fix is permanent, can't be broken again*.

So, anyone who is not receiving notifications should look at his/her profile Notifications page to make sure the proper boxes are ticked.


*at least in the same way as before and I don't foresee another break in Notifications...SMF made a change in the way it was receiving notifications from the server.  We amended our forum to conform and so...problem fixed permanently.

I just got a notification for the first time after not receiving them for five days.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

I only get PM notifications about 50% of the time.
