I'm able to access the forum, but what's up with the rest of the site?

I've had a hell of a time connecting these past few days. 'Server not responding'.

consistently good but that's the last few hours versus the last few days.

Using nslookup, www and wiki are at IP address 23.92.18.108, which back-translates stalin.tesuji.org, which is Ornette's linode server. I didn't realise there was still any of the site still on stalin, but whatever the problem was, it seems to be resolved now.

I can't seem to mark a recent notification as read. Anybody else having this issue or just me?

Nope, still getting a "something went wrong with your request" error when I try to mark things as read.

If it's not fixed after the next update, then it'll be worth looking into.

(Said update will have to wait until my current spate of interviews is over.)

Hello,

The last few days I haven't been getting any notifications from the site. I checked my yahoo account, and the last notification I received was a PM Notification on March 30th, around 4:30 EDT, but I've had other messages and posts I should have been notified of between then and now. Not sure if this is isolated to me, or is a system wide thing.

Also, I checked spam filter and all that, and nothing has been redirected there, and I've never had a problem like this before, as I've received all my notifications since I joined the site last August.

I can upload pics if you need them, I just can't edit out personal details from my email using my phone this late at night.

Anyway, I know you guys are busy, but any solutions you may have, or even identifying the issue would be greatly appreciated. I hate making my friend wait for me to PM back.

Are you missing on-site notifications as well (if you have them enabled) or just email notifications?

Have you checked your "User Control Panel" -> "Board preferences" -> "Edit notification options" to make sure the correct boxes are checked?

I haven't been getting notifications either. Board preferences haven't changed.

On site notifications are enabled and still work, it's just the e-mail notifications that seem to have disappeared.

I did double check the notification options last night, and those were still the same, sorry for not including that in the initial post. Being tired and making a post is not the smartest idea.

^Also looks like I'm not the only one either.

We've changed our email server as part of trying to diagnose and fix the problem. Is anything different?

No change for me yet, still no e-mails, and the board preference settings are still set the way they have been since I joined. I also included a few screenshots (which I hope help), one of the preferences, and also of my e-mail account through yahoo that I use for this site. I am subscribed to this thread, so I should have gotten an e-mail at 1:10a or something, but nothing came.

Monk and I are trying things out - but our being in different time zones slows the process I'm afraid. Don't worry, we'll get there in the end.

I've just corrected a setting in the mail server now in use, so I'm hopeful that we're there now.

EDIT - seems to be working OK through my mail server. Next up is to find out why it had stopped working through the other mail server!

Well, whatever you guys have been doing it seems to have worked. I just got my first e-mail notification a few minutes ago. Thank you guys so much for fixing that!
