Hello Folks,


Some of you may have noticed that forum messaging and news conversation messaging from our site has been off line for weeks.  It turns out the hosting company we use installed some software on our servers that was blocking this functionality accidentally and we weren't aware of it.


We have resolved that issue now but have since found out that our forum software was in a repeat deliver loop sending thousands of emails out, potentially hundreds to each of our registered users that may have had messages in the queue that weren't previously delivered.


We have since stopped that process and are having our developers delete the current message queue, so you don't get a deluge of duplicate email.


We hope to be back to full functionality later today - 7/24/13, with a properly functioning messaging system and no duplicate sends.



Thanks for your patients.  We appreciate it.  The good news is, we'll be moving to an entirely new and improved platform for HotHardware.com and our forum community very soon.  So stay tuned! [:D]


Thanks again,
Dave Altavilla
Founder / Editor in Chief
HotHardware.com

Is this the system that sends you an alert of a reply?


 


Edit: ahh this is basically most of the site emails. Maybe thats why its been so slow for this giveaway.

Seeing as I'm new around here, it didn't really bother me. :)


 


But I'm glad it got worked out.
