I keep getting these annoying "Did this answer your question?" e-mails from Video Game Sage. I was just wondering if there was a way to make it stop.

Hmmm.... maybe the next e-mail will answer you question

@Gloves, is this something that is a known issue you are working on?

I did get one of those too actually with the VGS bingo I hosted. It was specifically with the teaser thread I posted though, which was strange since by this point the event had already begun and pretty much ended, so nobody was posting in this thread any more.

They've told me to disable non-updated plugins, as they may be causing bugs. It's rough cuz it's not clear which might be causing the issue. 

I guess I'll have to shotgun it and see if people keep getting the emails.

It just sucks since the emails are so inconsistent, it'd be really hard to tell if they've actually stopped happening, or if it's just a bit of downtime before they start happening again.

I get these about once every month or two.  It started maybe 6-9 months ago.  Whatever the issue is, it definitely seems spotty but it's been going on a a while.

I have subbed to a lot of topics. Maybe it's related, but I don't think the emails necessarily correlate to topics I've subbed too.

I've not (manually?) subbed to any and I got one a week or two ago about my trade post that I put up around Halloween that had already been resolved, so I'd wager that probably doesn't have anything to do with it.

My favorite is when I got the "did this solve your question" and it quoted me responding to my own post.  I'll say it was the first time I got one and that was like last week.  This sounds very very hit or miss on what causes it to trigger.  Do you think there is enough AI to pick up on people asking for questions/help?

fyi, if u disabled something in the last 12 hours or so, i got one today.  Trying to help narrow down the issue @Gloves

I got another one a few days ago and the email had something at the bottom about unsubscribing from those notifications. Maybe that will do it.

@Bearcat-Doug pretty sure i unsubscribed from stuff like that when i first joined, but i will look......kinda think its a glitch as i didnt wanna receive 50 billion emails from vgs about threads.

Yeah I thought I unsubscribed from emails too when I joined but I guess maybe those are something new because I hadn't started getting them until recently.

To those experiencing this:

Please let me know if you continue getting these emails! I've applied an update to the core system which may resolve the issue. Hopefully so!

FYI, I got one overnight, with it marked as 2:42 AM Eastern this morning.  Whatever you've disabled so far apparently isn't the culprit.  If it helps, I've only gotten them based on topics that I've created, apparently when someone else responds to those threads.  Let me/us know if you'd like examples forwarded to you, in case you think there might be any hints hidden somewhere in what's sent.

Fur sure, if you can forward to this address it might help: videogamesageforum@gmail.com
