All questions

For Peter -- Food52 Website Questions

1) At the time I got the Hotline app, I wasn't able to log in for some reason, so I created a new membership. I want to delete that one now since I don't use it -- how can I do that? Basically, how does anyone delete a membership? 2) My settings include getting emails when there are responses to recipes or articles I have commented on. This used to work, now it does not. I no longer get those emails. How can I fix this?

My email notification hasn't worked for months either -despite my changes to the settings.

No emails in my spam filter, but I also get only sporadic notifications. I did get them at one point after the format change but lost them again. I did what we were told to do with problems--emailed [email protected] got an answer back that they were aware of the issue. But that's a long time ago now without resolution.

I haven't gotten email notifications for months either. They are not in spam I check my spam folder regularly. I miss questions on recipes or comments it's impossible to check every recipe that I have every day. I also emailed editors about this over a month ago but never heard back.

Me too - I emailed the editors - I feel bad that I don't respond to comments because I don't know that they are there! During the CP testing I received a confirmation email in the last few contest (the most recent version of the new approach) but this time I signed up using the "test this recipe" button and didn't get a confirmation.

I know, I noticed on several recipes questions that were 2 mos old that I never knew were there. I apologized and felt very bad.

My secret wish is that the recipes I save can be catergorized by meal type, prority, ingredient, etc. Same withb searches for recipews. But I'm grateful for the site. Also, the site will let me use my automated spell check - lazy typist here! Good luck new VP!

I was having the same problem as most of you....no notifications, etc. I finally created a g-mail account on Chrome just for Food52 related mail, notifications etc. and it seems to be working.

CookbookChick, so sorry you're having this problem. I recall you messaged me directly aboutthis a few weeks ago. I messaged you back... but of course, you didn't get the email from us.

All of you, if you're profile settings have a checkmark next to the checkbox that says "Receive notifications to recipes and articles I’ve commented on:" and you're not getting emails from us... and those emails are not shwoing up in your spam folder... then it would be helpful to us if you told us who your email provider is... you know, the part after the @ sign. is it Gmail? Hotmail? Roadrunner.net? Yahoo? Thanks so much,

Finally, I talked to Karl, the new VP Tech yesterday and made sure he was aware of the problem. I'm not sure where it is on his priority list, but at least he knows the problem exists.

Hi Peter, thanks for your reply. I checked my settings and it is checked that I should get notifications I am listed as MSN which is my email provider. I also have an Apple email address ME.com maybe I will try changing my email address to that one and see if it helps. What do you think?

OK Peter, I checked, and yes I have checked that box. But I'm not getting notifications. Provider is gol.com

But I was locked out entirely once because-- spam was being sent from Japan so everyone with a Japanese provider was closed down.

After I requested reinstatement, No problems to access the site, but no notifications.

Thank you and good luck!

Peter, my e-mail goes through hotmail.com. I do receive A&M's weekly digest, no problem, and once in awhile an editorial e-mail. But as everyone else has been saying, no notifications on comments or guestions. Not going to the spam folder and my settings are correctly checked.

Hi Peter! Thanks for responding to my questions -- both times! I am just now seeing this because -- you guessed it! -- I am not getting emails from you/Food52. (Let me add that I DO receive the Food52 newsletters and promotional emails, just not the ones to notify me of responses to comments on a thread.) I did double-check to make sure my profile settings were correct and had not changed. My email provider for Food52 is AOL. I do not use a spam filter specifically to avoid missing emails I want to see -- hence, I get far too much spam every day. Thanks for your help in fixing this glitch!

Hi Peter - I checked my settings and they are all checked (I have actually unchecked them, saved, rechecked, then saved again in the past twice to see if that would help). I use live.com (hotmail) Thank you!!

I get the newsletters from food52 the only thing I don't get are notifications, it stopped when the change of the website occurred and since then I have not gotten one notificaiton, I will try adding to address book but I doubt thats the problem as I check mail both on MSN.com and through the inbox on my mac. It should show up in one of those places.

Peter--you asked about my getting some but not all notifications--
No, none have ever ended up in my spam folder.
No, you're not in my address book. I'll try that and report back.
No, there doesn't seem to be much of a pattern. For example, I received a couple of the responses to this question, but not all of them. It seems pretty much the same inconsistencies across hotline, recipes, and blog comments.

All, don't thank me -- all I did was make some noise to the tech team about this still being a problem. You know, wave my arms in the arms and jump up and down. It was a new member of the tech team, Michael, who put the solution in place. Take a bow, Michael!

And thanks to CookBookChick for raising this issue again. Without your politely squeaky wheel this could have gone on for months more. :-/
