I think the mentions went out to Viktor yesterday. I am not sure why they took so long, but there was a big load of my cats reminders it was stuck behind. Maybe @Viktor Jarikov can confirm?

Thanks much, Jools and Eric. Today I've got three @mention email notifications:
-- one to this thread (Eric's post above),
-- one to the thread Eric had linked in the post above, and
-- the third one was interesting - it was from 2011, 4th post down http://www.planetcatfish.com/forum/view ... 52#p220443 !

I did recieve a few notifications. And from the above, I understand I am a rather difficult case, for which the system had to be adapted.

I never even bothered to look in 2015 :)

2021 update Re: 22nd August 2015 :: New "@mentions" feature

Post by Jools »

All,

It's been bothering me for a while that I've not seen many mentions for a few months. Turns out the feature was broken due to the large amount of data being searched for mentions every day (all posts for all users since the last time they were mentioned). Now I have re-written the code so it is much more efficient.

A one-off "catch up" batch of email notifications have gone out today to those who may have missed mentions in the past year or so. The feature will then run using the improved code from now and hopefully work well into the future!

Cheers,

Jools
