GWJ bugs, feature requests, and updates

I've been successfully getting PM notifications to my email without issue lately. Then today, I got one that came from (email address removed -A). Gmail warned that they couldn't verify that was actually the address it came from so maybe it's just a fluke.

The rest of the email was formatted correctly as a PM notification and the PM was legit so it seems more like a bug or 1-off than anything else. Just wanted to report it here. Let me know if you need more details.

Forum messages and emails seem to be broken in a few different places, thank you for the update! Took a screenshot of the original message to send to doogie.

Was the Amazon URL referral-adder removed? Seems like Amazon links are now posting verbatim.

My mod powers have been deactivated. Can those get switched back on?

I recall this being an ongoing issue, but a PM notification from here got auto-routed to my gmail spam folder.

In addition to that, the notification icon on the Favorites page (where I usually hang out when I'm not in an individual thread) is pretty small and I didn't see it.
I finally saw a notification today when I hit the auto-logout threshold and logged back in. The bigger notification on my profile page after logging in was what tipped me off.
I don't get a lot of PMs, so having the larger display notification for a PM on all pages on the site wouldn't bug me too much. I could see though folks who spend more time in their PMs might feel differently.

Amazon links should be posting verbatum, as the referral links were breaking people's ability to just share links and too many people complaining about the efficacy to bother fixing it. It was broken and wasn't properly referring anyway.

I will message you, your powers were different than mod access.

Why wasn't I told we could have powers now?!?

There's 332 people in line for powers before you.
