Forum Notifications ( automated )

Several times over the past few months I have had posts deleted and/or threads moved ( boo -effin- hoo right? ) but have not received any notifcation of these actions from our Mod team.

so in light of recent discussions I'm wondering... if there a rule regarding notication by mods of their actions or is this simply one of those "open to interpretation" items.

now... who could have moved my Cottage for hire in Cornwall thread.. last updated nearly a year ago.. without having the common courtesy to tell me?

Re: forum notifications

so it seems that thing ( no notifications ) that vwild very clearly states can't happen... is happening.

does anyone know a good system debugger they could get in?

or maybe just a good PR spokesman

Re: forum notifications

You should always receive the notification, but if a mod does the move fast, the message might not include the reason.

Like yesterday, when I closed the thread that got trashy with offensive posts, more over posted a warning in the thread a few mins before, the reason for closure was obvious even without writing in the automated message.

Closing a thread, the system automatically informs the OP, we do not click on anything. If members do not receive the automated message, then we have a bug.

Always inform us of this, please, so we can move it up and have things fixed and adjusted.

I have had my threads moved as well, without receiving a notification, which means it probably bugs, but it was a few months back, might be bugging again.

I will make a note of this in admin cue.

Re: forum notifications

OK Grynch, I'm going to pop this thread into Daily life and then bring it back to Forum support again.

You should receive 2 PMs informing you of each of the moves.

Edit: OK it's done. Let me know.

I appreciate your effort. In good will I accept that there is no option to not notify.
Without sounding conspiracy-like. How would we know that you just decided to DO notify?

There is no such thing as not notify...It's a feature automatically attached.

Re: forum notifications

Out of curiosity I just moved this thread (again) to Off Topic to see if grynch receives the automated notice. I'll move it back after he reports back (unless his Inbox is now overflowing with EF reports).

slaphead... yes I received notification from you.. twice.. and now from Vwild once.. but still nothing re. my "cottage for hire"...can you view who moved that and or why no notification went out?

and regardless of the system working sometimes..( as proven right now ) it apparently does not work all the time..hence my valid recommendation for a system debug

EDIT: ARGHH MY ENGLISH BAD
When moving, deleting, editing etc there are no options to not notify the owner of the thread or post.

The one instance where people will not be notified are those that have commented on a thread that's been moved or deleted. In that instance only the OP will be notified.

To quell the conspiracy theorists see the following screen shot. As you can see, we have no option to send or not to send a notification. Once we click on Move Thread the notices are automatically sent.
