Dear members,

ever since I am part of I have been receiving the email job notifications with a delay of 12 hours. I already told the site staff, and after that it was ok for 2 or 3 days, then it happened again (now for 5 months). I am a professional member and I receive them with that delay.
Sorry! I have enough of this kind of manipulations or technical issues and I leave this manipulated system.

Best regards

Sometimes the same here May 30, 2008

Sometimes, by the time I receive the message, the job is already closed. Used to be that, if interested, I would write directly to the outsourcer. Cannot do anymore because of the restrictions to showing the outsoucer info.

Feel free to use the support system to resolve these issues May 30, 2008

Hello all,

As problems with notifications can vary widely, it may be faster and easier to address any problems you are having receiving these emails via the support system.

At times there may be issues with sending notifications from the site, but very often the problem lies elsewhere. One tool you can use to see what the problem might be is your Mail Monitor, which can tell you if you have been sent specific job or KudoZ notifications, and when. In cases where you were not sent the notification, the Mail Monitor will also help you to diagnose why. You can see a list of recent KudoZ and job notifications sent to you with your notification log. Be sure also to check the FAQ on notifications:

Best regards,

We used to have a site time formerly... May 30, 2008

Hi! and it used to be about 2 hrs behind gmt + 1 time zone. That has been my calculation and it still works. I think this delay could be on accout of the internet service provider. Just a guess I can not know for true. Such a delay was known in the past on such an account. Yes I see a small lettered time indication as per GMT and my posting came in at 20.40. I guess we have to calculate the time zones as per locations. Did you try the latest google earth 4.3. well this comes with aero navigation with varying time zones you can specify. Brandis
