GDC email bombs (still / again)

I posted this months ago and never heard from anyone. It's soooooo much of a pain in the ass

If I'm subscribed to a thread and I receive a response notification, WHY does it come in 5, 10, 15 times?

It doesn't always do it but when it does (like for the past few days) my blackberry sounds like a pinball machine and I have delete all emails from my blackberry, or I have 100 emails a day to scroll through.


today has been particularly bad. Must've received 200 gdc emails in my inbox

Re: GDC email bombs (still / again)

Go to your User CP (in the browser, not app), click "Edit Options" in the sidebar and then there's a dropdown menu for thread subscription a bit down (second main box) - it has multiple options, including "No Email Notification".

Re: GDC email bombs (still / again)

The issue is that when 'it' happens, I get 5, 10, 15 emails for EACH response. That's not supposed to happen obviously.

It hadn't happened in a while but the past few days, it's been stupid.

I can't see it being a hotmail issue - gdc notifications are the only messages that send themselves 15 times.

Is there a 'sent items' for the forum that you can check - you'll see. The screenshot above shows 17 identical emails sent for the same thread response, all at 10:05. My blackberry goes nuts.

Re: GDC email bombs (still / again)

dude I'm in CANADA. We're not quite as up to date on infrastructure as you guys. 500 megs is a big deal.

Even our traffic mgmt is archaic.We didn't get HOK* lanes until late last year.

I've never even sent a text message yet! I guess I'm a bit behind the times.

Not too bad in the car, they suck on the bike though. When I keep them in my back pocket they make the bike lean to one side.

Re: GDC email bombs (still / again)

I have to chime in on this as well, it's getting really old. I like having mail notifications and am subscribed on around 100 different forums, this is the only one that sends me dozens of messages per update



To be clear, I got 73 individual messages for this ONE update. GDC is eventually going to have email deliverability issues if this continues.

Re: GDC email bombs (still / again)

yeah, plus it's gotten worse since I posted that. I received 44 emails on one post a few days ago and I finally just unsubscribed to everything that came in.

I didn't get to all of them though cuz this morning, I received 101 emails all at once for a response in the 'my multimedia bike' thread

it used to be 5-10-15 emails... wtf is up with literally over 100? GDC has an obsessive-compulsive mail server??
