  • Important: PLEASE UPDATE YOUR PROFILE

    The problem: E-mail addresses are inactivated but users dont update their Apolyton profiles. this causes tons of automatic emails(new posts, new pm notifications) bouncing back to our mail boxes.

    The solution: As of today, any email address that bounces back will equal to the move of the user to the "Users with bad email" group(which is more or less a ban) until the user updates his profile and contact us to change him back. We will not be notifying any user that we have changed his user group.

    So, please update your email address in your profile now!

    Thank you in advance

    Just to clarify: I don't have to update anything if the email address I use is legitimate, right?

      This is a good idea.

      Hope someday youse guys can get around to fixing the glitch in the "birthday" field that defaults to Dec 31, 1969. Is it possible that folk thought the profile stuff didn't matter, and therefore, did not update their email addys?? All because they figured the inattention to the "birthday glitch" would have been fixed if the profile mattered.

      So many issues, so little time. But, I was 22 on my Poly date of birth.

        Markos, is the apolyton.net domain set up as an exclusion for the rule? I mean, otherwise, if the mail server hiccups again, as it has been the case several times, all staff would end up being banned.

          the process of "banning" is manual, therefore noone will get banned for no real reason.

              Is there a way to get rid of all the subscribe thread in one shot? I have a bunch that are not active, too many to do by hand.

              Thanks

                      Ahh, good. I don't need to do anything.

                            Expect the number of active posters to be decimated, 10 times over, shortly.

                              I think most active users keep their profiles current.
