Email oddity Answered


Is there any way to produce comment emails that are more sensibly organised?

Take, as a typical example, the last comment-summary email I got.  This is the list of dates and times of the comments, in the order of the email:

There is just no logic to the order, which makes it confusing to scan through and make sense of, especially on days with a lot of comments, and more especially when some of the comments are days out of synch.

Speaking of which, those days-old comments didn't get a timely answer, because I didn't hear about them.  That makes me seem tardy and poorly mannered, something which I try not to be (call  it a cultural thing).

Is this part of the email alerts? Do you have it set to "as they are received"?

I'm not currently getting comment emails to my personal box, so I'll turn it on to see what happens. Please let me know if it's something else you're talking about though.

I should add. I have comments sent to my email once a day. The email makes sense to me and all of the information in it seems well organized. I just changed my settings to as they are received. Is the "Date: Sept 26, 2011. 5:15PM" what you receive in your inbox?

I have comments set to "once a day".

The list of dates and times is from a single email, in the order they are listed in the body of the email.

Hey there Kiteman. Please disregard this, I'm just curious to see if replying to a comment from the email link works. Thanks!

Kiteman, I worked 35 years as programmer and analyst, and can tell you the following:
  • In computing, as in real life, no small enemy.
  • The smallest thing can be complicated to infinity.
  • If something works fairly well, do not touch it!
