just curious if folks would be into getting an email when someone posts something on their profile. currently, profile alerts only show up in the alert drop down list when you log in. the bad side of this is that i can't currently bundle up all the emails into one, so you'd end up getting an email each time someone posts on your profile.

vote!

No - I'm inundated with stupid shit coming from real and bogus copycat job placement sites. Anyway email is full - but right now we get an alert (flag) to someone posting something to our profile and I do read them. So my vote is to carry on as is. :D But thank you for the new tool that came about for us. :)

This isn't something which I think I need right now. If I were getting harrassed and logged in infrequently, it would be cool to have.

I thought we got them already? Ah well, I don't mind knowing what's going on, a profile message is the same as an email message in my books.

when someone posts on your profile, an alert (red square) comes up next to the flag at the top right of the website (the alerts panel). currently you do not get an email sent to your email account when someone posts on your profile. you only get emails when someone replies to a thread you created or replied to, or when someone sends you a PM (conversation). the proposed change would add emails being sent out for each time someone posts someone on your profile.

My vote would be yes, with the option to remove it. Personally, I don't like email notifications, but more choice is always better, no?

And since people mostly voted no, I'd set it at no for default

When I'm interested in what's going on, I log on. I mean, some people might want them, but I think that if this feature is introduced we should be able to turn it off pretty easily. My email gets crowded enough as it is. Goddamn spambox is brimming with viagra salesmen and catfishing princes from Kazakhstan.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $40.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $40.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $40.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $40.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

I got my first trespass in over five years of riding, but the bull in clovis was doing that thing were he scans the cars from a ladder and my bike had the back wheel off so i couldnt run. I caught the next train after he let me go.
The amarillo northyard hopout is trashed, can yall clean up after yourself. No wonder they put up all these new fences here.
just now saw yet another article of people talking photos of themselves and falling into a waterfall and being pummeled into drowning - why people why - i recall when i first heard something like this out at Silver Falls eas of Corvallis, I think it was 2012 or 2013, but it never ceases to amaze me that it happens so much all over the world
Hitched into Quebec City, got a free wristband to a music festival with The Offspring and Blink-182 playing!! Good times, now off to Charny, back on the rails!
