Notification emails
« on: January 14, 2008, 11:34:12 AM »
I just received in my email today 34 notification messages about threads/posts that are weeks old, that I never received notification about at the time they were posted.  Any idea about why the very long delay?  I deleted them and also, changed the settings in my profile, but it's a bit mysterious why I would be getting them now, so long after the events.  Can anyone clarify?

Many thanks and God Bless,
Jeff

I just noticed I am getting something similar.  I have gotten one PM notice and one Chess game request, yet they were both from at least a month ago or so.

Mail server was backed up and I had to clear out an error which resulted in a backlog being sent out.

No problem.  I just got an PM notification about a chess game from you and I was wondering if I had a memory lapse.  :P

Glad that I found this thread!

I have just downloaded 30 e-mails with notification of replies to old threads, some of them back in November.  Also notifications of PMs which are weeks old.  Same flood of e-mail notifications has been happening for the past 4 days.

Would you like to me lay a heavy curse on the ISP and get rid of the snakes!  We Irishman have the Power...!!

This is turning into a passive aggressive complaint thread.  I'll just disable the mail server this evening so no one has to worry about the problem.

No! I have been receiving the slew of e-mails for 4 days.  They arrive in clumps of about 30.  I simply thought - there is a problem with OC's computer but they'll fix it sooner or later.  Then when I saw this thread I shared my own experience.

When problems like this arise sometimes we think it is fixed and it is not really. You might be surprised how complex databases are.

We were going to disable all notifications but that will screw things up in other ways. So the workaround is anyone who is getting tons of notifications, please manually disable notifications for yourself in your profile.

if anyone does not know how to do this (it should be straightforward as I believe you had to tick the box to get them in the first place) post it here and I will disable them for you.

Just fyi---I'm not complaining.  I changed my profile info., by deleting the requests for e-mail notices of replies to my posts; and I'm still getting the notices, even for posts submitted after I changed the requests for notices.

I just got one yesterday so the worst seems to be over.  Thanks to our wonderful OC Net tech wizards who keep us up and running.  Problems with an exploding database just means OC Net is growing, thriving and spreading the Orthodox faith, and that's a wonderful thing.

This was the first thing that I checked when I started having this problem, and the setting was already off. So this may not work for everyone.

Thank you for your kind words.  The database is now 258 megabytes and has hundreds of thousands of lines of code...and the software that runs the database sometimes has bugs, so....sometimes it is a wild goose chase.
