Email onslaught upon registration

Issues & Bug Reports

Found 8 posts - Go to Last Post


Since registering, less than 2 hours ago, I have received 17 emails! This is quite an onslaught which I did not enjoy seeing.

I assume there is a feature to turn off email notifications, but perhaps it might be a good idea is this is presented during registration to prevent the flood of emails which may not be wanted? It's overwhelming and could put people off.

I'm off to look for the email settings.
its annyoing but you can turn it off! but i love to get an email when you get a badge.. this will only happen once when you first register and getting all the badges emails at once! calm down andrew Smile
I'm terribly sorry for the onslaught of emails. As more and more badges are added, the number of emails can add up quickly. I am working to address this now.

Please keep in mind that this should only occur shortly after signing up. As you unlock new badges, or receive new private messages, you should continue to receive emails from us as long as your email settings are setup to receive them.

For Badges, could you make a Daily/Weekly/Monthly e-mail for all badges earned that interval?

Even defaulting it to daily would compress 17 badge e-mails into one, and would alleviate resources on your end (~ 93% e-mail reduction) and make a new user less offput.

Same could be done with friend requests, messages, etc. Even combining all events into a single daily e-mail.
EXAMPLE:

Welcome to GTN,

Today you got:
17 Badges
8 Friend Request
3 Wall Postings
ETC


Details of the e-mail could be more verbose or terse depending on style and language.
That's a fantastic idea, and definitely something we can do. Perhaps this could be a setting for each user with the option to toggle between Instant Email Notification (current method) or Daily/Weekly/Monthly Email Notifications (per your suggestion).

Thanks for the great suggestion!

Thanks for this! Having email notifications is a great feature (despite being one I will turn off), but it was clear to me that it needed a little refining!

Great to hear the site listening to suggestions- sign of great things to come I expect.
You can always have badge notifications disabled by default with or without the consolidation e-mails. That way, people who are interested in badges can still choose to turn them on.
