     OP - April 17, 2012, 05:00 PM

    Ok peeps, just a heads up for some who obviously don't know the drill.

    When you get an email notification from our server, alerting you to a new PM or whatever, do not reply to it!

    Yes, it does have some lovely message in it that you want to reply to. The problem is that it's only a notification to tell you what you have been sent.

    If you reply to the notification the reply will be routed to the webmaster email address. That means it gets forwarded to the desktops of all the admins.

    That's right folks, you are actually sending replies to your private conversations to our desktops. We don't want you to do this, and you most likely don't want to do it either.

    So don't do it. Smiley

    And no, we don't discuss them or remember them. We just delete them as soon as we see what they are. parrot

    Is there a way that this might not happen, for you know the people who still might make this mistake?

    Not really, unless you know a good psychic. I'll dig out the template and edit it so it has a nice warning in it, but that's about all we can do.

    ETA; Just checked and it already contains a warning

    If you're stupid enough that you reply to PMs via email, you deserve to have your PMs posted in public.

    I'd put some stars or something around that though... have a feeling it'll still be ignored by some.

    Big effin gifs with sparkles, and an audio file that yells at them. Grin

    Anyway, I think the language string should accept html line breaks, but let me know if you get one that just has it all run together with the <br /> code visible. I don't use the notifications system myself, and can't be bothered running a live test case. Wink

    That oughta do it. Or maybe embed this in the template:

    Maybe if you guys put: "DO NOT REPLY TO THIS EMAIL; PM FROM CEMB" as the actual Subject of the email, then people would pay more heed.

    Luckly Yeez never replies back to my advances so no one will know of my courting. 

    So once again I'm left with the classic Irish man's dilemma, do I eat the potato or do I let it ferment so I can drink it later?
