    Can mods please sticky this ?

    I think it would be good to have an alert for pbemtracker problems: eg
    - running out of file space, and saves not available as downloads.
    or
    - any other problem where saves are not being successfully sent.



    Please post if you detected a pbemtracker problem.

    Please indicate what the problem is, and if you already emailed Matt to get it fixed.

    This might give early warning to everyone else, without needing to post in all the many threads now using this fine tool.

    And I'll start:

    Downloads are currently not available, as from this morning.

    I emailed Matt who indicated it will be fixed soon.

    In the meantime
    - please check if download is available after you uploaded
    - if not, please email the save manually

    I am not receiving any alert emails from PBEM tracker. IE. it is my turn and it has been uploaded to the tracker but I don't get anything in email. I have to check the tracker manually. Anyone else having this issue?

    Yes!

    I receive about 50% of the emails. The other 50% I do not receive.

    I had noticed that the tracker failed ocasionally but it never did (to me at least) with this high rate.

    Yeah I'm literally getting nothing at all and haven't since yesterday. I'm going to shoot the admin an email.

    That sounds like you are over reacting.

    Should be fixed now, let me know if it continues being an issue.

    The error message is taken care of. Scienidez' leader image in this game won't display in certain circumstances until I get time later tonight or tomorrow to fix it. Thanks for the heads up on this issue.

    Sorry for the long downtime. Site's back up now, you'll probably have to log back in, and any current e-mail links you have will be broken.

    There will probably be another (much shorter) period of downtime a little later today. After that, we shouldn't have any more issues.

    Totally agree. It's funny how tracker has become a key fixture in pbem playing here. Good to have it back. Thanks.
