How unfortunate. :| There's too many variables involved for this to have a chance of working properly it seems like. There's the board, Cloudflare, the server, and the hoster as a whole that the messages have to travel through. Then there's whatever the end users email provider is. They all point their finger at the other as to who the culprit is. Luckily it's not something that's detrimental at all to the forum. It's just a mere inconvenience.

As of this moment, I feel the board settings are configured properly, so there has to be somewhere else where the issue lies. It started before implementing Cloudflare so I'm thinking it's a problem on our hosting companies end. I'll contact them again to see what they have to say. Although the last time I did about this a few days ago, they gave me the wrong information. :roll:

I’m getting email notifications now. Always had it turned on but never received any until now.

Well that's certainly good news. :) I don't know if it's every going to work 100% flawlessly, but it should work better now than it ever has before at least.

My main hope is that all members receive the email when they initiate a password change now. Before it was random as to who got one, and who didn't. That was the biggest problem this was causing as I had to constantly deal with changing passwords manually for members as a result.

I just realized while making some PM space that there's a 400 message limit for inbox, a separate 400 message limit for sent, and another 400 message limit for outbox. I thought it was just a 400 message limit for everything. It would be really interesting to hit that outbox limit. No messages getting read by anyone, or everyone trying to read them already having a full inbox?

The story with that is there's only one setting for everything. You can't choose separate numbers for each individually. You would think there should be but nope.

I don't know why I settled on 400. I think it was originally set at 100, and people were complaining. I probably figured I'd raise it to 400! Who would need to keep that many PMs?! I'm currently at 395 with them dating back 15 years. :lol:

I really need to go through all of mine to clean it out.

There's been some recent discussions here lately about eBay's poor practices, and alternatives. I received an email through the boards contact form inquiring about creating an account just to use the B/S/T section. I routinely get these types of messages. People who want to create an account just to sell their stuff or want to access it before reaching the required number of posts. This got me to thinking... Maybe we should have two separate B/S/T sections. One for members with something like 0-100 posts, and another for members with 101 and over posts. The numbers could be anything, and we'd also have to change the user group names but maybe it's a good idea?

I would say not a good idea. Begs to question the value of anyone who wants to buy or sell on a site but doesn't want to meet its minimum criteria. There are already sites with no criteria to enter their B/S/T section and all of them have endless scammer threads. RC10TALK doesn't have that... food for thought...

That's why I figured I'd ask. Suggested rule changes with it have been brought up at various points throughout the years but never this particular idea. But yeah, it opens ourselves up to too many scams and upset people, even though the dealings were at their own risk. Thanks for the feedback! :)
