NEW Comments Notification Feature (No longer sending emails for comments)

Blog Posted:1/5/2021 5:45:00 PM

Internet service providers do not like PoetrySoup because we send too many emails. As a result, we will no longer be notifying you via email when you receive comments on poems.

Instead, we are working on a notification icon at the top of each PoetrySoup page that indicates if you have a new comment and how many new comments you have received since you've visited your Comments Inbox. We are working out some of the performance bugs, but it is operational now.

Hello Poetry Team ,while I am waiting for the new icons to tell me when I have comments, I have a question. It is: Until the new icons comes, how will I know when I have a comment now? Thank you. Waiting for an answer.

Simple, non congestion simplicity. To me it's the carrot to log on to the site you've a lovely relationship with, and for me, not that I'm here that often, it'll now entice me to log on and integrate a little more now that I have the time to do so. Well done admin - Happy New Year to all at the Soup, the best Poetry Site on our lovely planet xx

Great, I have to admit though today I really missed my comment emails but of course just a matter of getting used to it, thanks for your hard work over the last days sorting this all out _ Constance

It's a good idea. I do not use email notifications anyway.

I think this is a super idea! Personally, I much prefer my emails to only reflect my private correspondence. Keep up the good work of streamlining this site. :) Susurrus

Hi, Team Soup, well, I think the icon notification is fine, in fact like it. I usually answer comments from my Comments Box anyways, so no problem for me, it is just a matter of clicking on the icon when you log in, thanks for all you do _Constance
