Oh no, not again :(. Really sorry about this. I have just disabled e-mail again, I'll look into this tomorrow.

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

I really hate making this kind of screw up - very embarrassing to accidentally spam people :$. This was in the subtle logic of how welcome mails are sent. I was sure this one was fixed, after leaving the mail queue on for two days and keeping checking it, but apparently not. Oh well, back to debugging it ;).

Right, so I did fix it before, but I forgot to apply the fix back to our source tree and overwrote the fix in an update! Whoops, double pain!

It's now fixed. I have put mails back on, so the queue has just flushed to people with mails that have been held up in there since last night.

I've put an optional safe guard in place to detect if any of these welcome mails send twice and alert the staff instead of sending.

Chris-

We won't start flogging you until you mess up our live sites.  ;)

I just turned off the notifications for my test (clone) site.
