My last Kudoz notification has the timestamp 12 Dec 12:27.

Any ideas why? The site status board is silent...

Delayed e-mail notification Dec 13, 2002

I do get notifications per e-mail, but only occassionally and sometimes (not always!) with great delays (up to +24 hours). Some questions are completely left out, although my settings are OK.

Does this still have to do with the hardware problems that were dealt with a few weeks ago?

Email Problems Dec 13, 2002

Between 13:00 and 23:30 GMT on Dec. 12, 2002, many users did not receive email notifications. This was due to a temporary work-around that was supposed to improve email performance while we worked on the new mail system. Obviously, that backfired.

Beginning Friday, Dec. 13 at 17:00 GMT we will be rolling out the first stage of our new mail system. This should begin to resolve the various mail problems that have been plaguing us for so long.

I apologize for any inconvenience this email outage has caused.

I have forgotten to grade answers for my last two questions, and I got no notification.

When email arrives the bidding has already been closed... Dec 16, 2002

More and more frequently, in recent times, I have noticed that when I receive the notification for a new job, the bidding is already closed.

Are there time delays for non premium members?

Thanks a lot

I've also had this problem... Dec 16, 2002

...for several weeks now. And then when the notification finally comes, the questions have already been closed.

Reasons to be cheerful?
