I don't seem to be getting emailed notifications any more. I have it turned on for both Someone quotes you in a post and Someone sends you a private message, and I've had both recently but not received any emails.

I used to get them, up until a week or two ago. I thought the lack of Someone quotes you messages might be 'cos I was getting back to the boards in question "too quickly", but today it was over 8 hours....

Aha! Anyone else? Alternatively, anyone still getting them?

No emails you say! Maybe there's a connection with the problem I'm having as per the previous topic on here:

viewtopic.php?f=21&t=6617&view=previous

Stooz has been alerted to that one, as you'll see.

Aha squared!! Yes, I'd seen your post but saw the words "mobile" and "new password" and skipped it. But on re-reading it, the actual problem is.... no email.

And in fact no emails seem to be a general problem -- I've just tried emailing this topic to myself (click spanner at the bottom of the page), sending it to another of my email addresses and asking it to also copy me at my TLF address, and neither have arrived.

So, I conclude that all TLF emails are broken.

Clariman here. I know that Stooz recently changed the website's FROM email address, so it may be connected with that. I'll have a look at the site settings to see if I can spot anything. If not, I'll ask Stooz to take a look

I've emailed Stooz and will txt him shortly too.

I've had a look at the Admin settings and have pointed Stooz to a few things, but probably safer to get him to deal with them.

I am delighted to be FINALLY registered and able to post! Several very frustrating days later!

If I may be so bold there are TWO problems:

a) I tried TWICE to register, with two different sets of user names/password/email address. I did NOT get ANY confirmation emails.

b) There are NO externally visible or accessible email addresses or web forms - so someone trying to register who encounters a problem has NO WAY to reach you guys/admins and tell you there is a problem!!!

It is only because I used Twitter to contact Mr Contrarian and Rhomboid directly that they in turn could relay my problem to Stooz and Geekspeak44 I believe!

This is crazy!

As it is I am now registered under my second preference, not my first, and even now (in IE/Edge and Firefox) I could not click on the "Contact" buttons on the team page to make contact with Stooz or Geekspeak44!

Sorry - but better you know of these problems!

Welcome.

That was a recent problem which stooz has now fixed.

I can't comment on the second problem but re:

You should be able to send a Private Message to stooz (above right) and he or someone else may be able to explain how to get back to your preferred username.

stooz also mentions his email address in a separate post over here viewtopic.php?f=21&t=6603&p=71620#p71620, if that assists, but others on this Topic may be able to talk you through the process.

I can't see any "Contact" buttons on the team page memberlist.php?mode=team or I've failed to spot them.

hi PD - long time no speak!

Re: direct email: on the page that lists the Team ... one can then click on the admin team members and go to that for stooz say ...
.. (I just tried to post the page URLs but apparently I'm not allowed to post inks! ???)

- on that page it says on left near top "CONTACT STOOZ" - now call me simple but I took that as an invitation to click on it to send a message!


Also, may I again reiterate the LACK of ANY EXTERNAL contact point - no email, no web form - nothing!

I am sure there are others who've tried to register or contact LF and given up - which would be a shame!

Indeed! Do I have to guess who you were?

You will be able to provide links after a period of time.

Yes, you should be able to use ucp.php?i=pm&mode=compose&u=2 , once you've composed the message etc, but they may not be available for brand new registrations.

The email facility to contact stooz direct at his gmail address I mentioned should work.


Also, may I again reiterate the LACK of ANY EXTERNAL contact point - no email, no web form - nothing!

That's something for admin/the site owners to comment upon, should they so wish. You could always self report your post, using the ! function, if that works for you.

Welcome Ashridge

Sorry about the problems that you had registering. The lack of registration emails was a temporary problem which is now fixed. I take your point about the lack of other methods of contact. I will discuss this with Stooz.

Thanks and Welcome
