Here is an odd thing that occurs with this feature.

Earlier this week I started a thread on vollkornbrot.  No one has posted to the thread, it is only my post.  I got a link to that thread in my email "interesting threads you might have missed". 

Is this something that could be re-designed, so that a person does not get their own thread back in the "might have missed" mailing.

Not a big deal, I really like the "might have missed" email

Used to be I only saw the thank you for quality posts, during the last 4 days people have liked your post" message if someone had actually "liked" a post and then there was a link st of what posts of mine had gained the recognition of others.   Now I get the message when there are no posts that are listed and presumably none have been liked.

Dunno if it is a big deal to anyone just thought I would mention it.

Mine is currently set to send the top 12 threads every day but you can change your settings to however many or how often you like.   

This thread is you all to share your thoughts and opinions on this feature. 

How is everyone finding it?  It it helpful to you for finding interesting threads?




I like it and it brought me back here today. Yes, I find it helpful to jump into the most interesting threads I haven't seen and to return to any I've seen already to find out what is new in them.

I closed my permies account more than 2 weeks ago and I'm still getting these emails. Isn't there some kind of law against that?

Your account appears to be open and fully operational to me...

I locked the account to make sure that this "problem" doesn't happen again.

  I appreciate receiving these emails. I am often short of time to thoroughly check out the various threads. These reminders help me to focus on important things that I may have indeed missed. Please keep them coming!

Absolutely love it.  I have so little time to check internet, it makes it easy for me, so I don't have to search.

I always read the "Interesting permies thread" you send to find topics I'd like to see. I haven't found the other options people have mentioned, so I'll look for them now. I appreciate the help I've had through the Permies forum, THANKS!

Today, I got "Here are the top 1 threads from the last 12 days  of the forums you think are best! " with only one entry, which had been spammed yesterday.  Some nervous nellie with a rocket oven has been abusing their privileges.

I checked your account ...  12 threads every 12 days ...  I'll ask devaka to have a look.

I LOVE it! I've been a member for a while, but until this feature popped into my email, I rarely thought to visit, because... life. Now, I'm coming in at least daily, and posting, and enjoying permieslike I meant to, all along! Thank you!

Maybe I changed my settings myself, but then I did something wrong. First I got those messages about threads I might have missed, and every time there were interesting new threads I never saw before. But now the message only mentioned the threads I actively follow, nothing new ...
