They've remained dead for me.
Buuuuuuut are they better now?
Good for me, thanks James! @TiredChildren
Thanks Chris! @boon velvet any better for you?
Hey James. When did you switch it over? I received 1 notification, which was the most recent sales post by @BAPE , but because 1 slips thru hear and there and there were a handful of notifications I should have, but didn't receive today , I can't be certain anything is different. I'll get back to you tomorrow after more time has passed and more posts have gone up. Here's for hoping tho! Thanks for coming back to take care of it, bud.
By the way, James, you mentioned one of the last times you were on here that you were assigning new mods then. Is there any news on that front?
I fixed 2 of the spam issues that were set up incorrectly with my mail server, but it looks like we're still getting issues with too many emails being sent by the forum at once. Unfortunately I think I'll need to switch to a different email service, but I'm trying to see if there's some way around the issue without having to switch services.
Mods are still on the way. I've actually already set them up and they know they're mods, but we're keeping it quiet until I've had a chance to outline some guidelines for how moderation should be handled. I'm hoping to get to that soon so they can get in there and start banning everyone.
As for my email notifications, apparently still broken, cause I should have received a couple today... I'm going to unfollow and follow again in hopes of resetting it now that you have cleared the spam stuff. Just maybe.
Edit: @TiredChildren , I can't remember, do I select "New Threads" or "New Messages" to receive all new entries in a section?
@boon velvet "New Threads" will only tell you if someone starts a new thread, whereas "New Messages" will tell you if anyone posts anything in either an existing thread or a new one.
That's right. Thank You @TiredChildren I picked the right one then.
Do these moderators already have "moderator" under their user names?
EDIT: I couldn't help being goofy.
shucks! and I was hoping to nominate @ultrakaiju . At least he keeps us on our toes with upcoming birfdays, that must be worth something!
Haha, I saw that too, @Mr. Humphreys . He's got my vote.
i see orange letters, congrats
Are notifications working any better for you JP?
Maybe, @TiredChildren . Honestly, bud, I'm not really sure. It seemed like it at first.
A few days ago, I received a string of emails (all 666doll's "mods / noobs " posts to numerous sales threads), and although after looking into it, there were still some that I should've had, it was still more than I'd received in a good while. But since then, it's been back to almost nothing when I should have been receiving them.
OH, so far I do seem to be getting All email notifications for private convos now tho. That's a big plus
Please for the love of god get rid of the new profile posts column on the right side. It's utterly pointless and irritating.
Anyone noticing anything different about email notifications? They should be faster and more reliable now. @boon velvet
@TiredChildren I did notice that I am once again receiving emails. Thanks for fixing the issue!
Hey Jim Dandy, I'm not sure if it's any better from the last tweak. It looks like I should have received at least 6 today (not counting the replies to those posts that I should have also received ), but my sb email notification total today was 4...
Last time after your update @TiredChildren , I un-subscribed from receiving notifications from those threads, and then subscribed again, which may or may not have actually done anything, but I think I'll do it again, as it couldn't hurt.
I appreciate you trying to get this squared away, TC.
Can we bring back the area then showed what percent of your posts are in which thread? I loved looking at it.
It's been suggested before and I think it should be brought up again - There needs to be a separate section for Chinese soft vinyl. Skullbrain, always an excellent source for information, needs a place specifically for soft vinyl made in China. Right now it's all mixed in, with some collectors (1) not always aware of where certain toys are made and (2) being surprised once the toy's in hand, having expected them to be more like the sofubi they're familiar with instead of having a better idea of what they're getting beforehand.
Before people think this is a slam against fauxfubi, it's not. I own and enjoy some Chinese made pieces too. This is coming strictly from a place of wanting proper information in its right place, and all that goes with that, just like everything else is here. And if I was one of these artists, I'd want to be part of a Chinese soft vinyl room for (1) easier reference and (2) so that interested people could be educated, maybe recognizing it as its own thing, and not continuously comparing it to sofubi (part of this is because it's new and there's a history there tho).
This way too, similar to the vintage vinyl and resin sections, if you want to avoid it or only hang out there, you can easily do so. I'm pretty sure it's here to stay and hate it or love it, it does not belong in the Japan section.
@TiredChildren @ultrakaiju @toothaction @animator
^ Pfft, YOU don't belong in the Japan section. Rude.
