If anyone has a twitter account (I deleted mine ages ago), you can poke smiller (his is the only one I have memorized).

[Edit] I just noticed that you said your question was deleted. I'm sad to hear this. Considering how much pure noise there is on the Questions side, nowadays, it surprises me that someone even noticed it. I'm hoping that it just disappeared due to some glitch or other. :-(

@shrdlu: Multiple thanks! Wasn't sure of gender, so I said s/he. ;-) Now I know. Obviously knew about his thread, but felt this is a broader problem. I didn't receive woot.com's daily digest. That may mean their whole mail system is having a problem. Deals has been wonky about a number of things since yesterday.

Am hoping someone from staff will answer and 'splain. :-D

Edit to your edit: Noise? LOL I was thinking along the static or fluff line. :-D My deleted question was a valid 'Is anyone else having problems w/the FRESH tabs of deals & questions?' BTW: Both answers were yes. Question deleted.

@gmwhit: As I said, if you want someone from the team to see this, you need to use twitter. If notifications aren't working, they aren't working for them, either. They don't usually monitor the questions side, and I know that at least one (perhaps more) of the Deals dot Woot team is off for a week.

That'll work. [Edit] Ugh. I see his last tweet was December 5. He may be off, too.

@shrdlu: Not a "Twit." No can do. ;-) If woot's entire mail system is down, they must know that. Right?

vote-for5vote-against

@gmwhit: Nope. I've seen this before, multiple times. Their mail system isn't down. Just the part that is inconvenient to us. :-(

@shrdlu: Still wondering why I didn't receive a daily digest. Also, you'd think THEY would notice that they were not receiving their own notifications regarding questions & deals. Guess it's just a sit and wait for it to be fixed. :-| Multiple times, eh? To take a word I used from the 'dirty words that aren't' question --- Farkle!

I did get the Woot daily digest this morning. (if you can call 12:03am morning). I am not receiving any other type of notification though...

vote-for7vote-against

I'm not getting notifications when I've been mentioned, or to deals/questions I'm subscribed to.

I've been unusually productive today at work, as well.

vote-for6vote-against

Since several people have said they DID get the daily digest, I checked again in case I overlooked it. I did NOT receive it. In fact, I need to go check to see what's offered up today... haven't done that. ;-)

I didn't receive the daily digest either, but everything else seems to work for me. Missed Monte and Mortimer while having coffee. Try this link. A blogger posted it.

I'm having the same problem. No notifications from deals.woot today, but I did get the digest email.

vote-for5vote-against

Wish that someone from staff would comment. :-( They ARE reading the questions. My tags were changed from 'notifications', 'server-issues' and
'sound-of-silence' to meta & notifications. Still getting the sound of silence. ;-) Maybe they think silence is golden?

I'll take this opportunity to apologize to those who have responded to me, both in questions & deals. I usually watch my e-mail & carefully respond. Have no idea if I'm missing some. Sorry.

Thanks @inkycatz:!! S/he posted here two hours ago that tech support has been notified.

Hey.

I doubt that your question was actually deleted, just as I doubt that mine was. I'm guessing a synchronization problem between servers, or else a database problem that required transactions to be backed out.

My last email from deals.woot came in at 6:21 PM (Eastern) on Sunday.

I did get the woot daily digest at 2:02 AM on Monday, which is close enough to when it normally comes in (later than some days, earlier than others).

I'm slightly surprised how much I miss the emails... I've come to enjoy communicating with the people here on deals.woot. It is definitely more work to have to troll though the questions looking for answers after my own.

(Thanks, @inkycatz!)

Ha! Got my daily digest e-mail. :-D Now if only......

vote-for2vote-against

No email notifications for me either. Did get the Daily Digest, though.

The backlog has been fixed (thanks to @josefresno).

I realize this is an older thread, but for me I can count on NOT receiving the Daily Digest at least 3 or 4 times a month. It's frustrating to be sure, but it also makes me wonder if I'm missing out on other email notifications. All settings are how they should be to receive my monkey love, it's just that sometimes I guess the monkeys have other ideas.

Am adding another answer to this because I am NOT receiving notifications. AGAIN. (12/21/2011 3:30PM EST)

If anyone gets a notification of this, please, please comment so I'll see if I receive your notification. If not, I'll ask this question again. THANKS!!

Summoning @inkycatz @thunderthighs @ Anyone in staff.

This is a test. This is only a test.

I will ping some people (the funny stare is never as effective as you think it is) and see what sort of update we can get.

vote-for3vote-against

@inkycatz: Thank you. You're the one that started the ball rolling on this last time. Much appreciated! BTW: I did post a new question and @jumbowoot has responded. An aside: Did not receive a notification on this - I was kinda checking it. Please keep pinging, though. I like the sound of it! :-)

@inkycatz: I'm getting notifications most of the time (I think). Woot Staffer Phil responded almost immediately to an email I sent to service about my Daily Digest emails not getting to me(I hate bothering them). I was relieved to know it wasn't from something stupid I had done with my settings.
I have noticed that the deals notification switch has been defaulting to "NO" every time I check my info. Must be Wootlins in the machines.
