1. Hey Guest, welcome back to DLP

    As you can see, we've changed our look. We've migrated from vBulletin to the Xenforo forum system. There may be issues or missing functionality, if you find anything or have feedback, please check out the new Xenforo Migration Feedback forum.

    Our dark ("Dark Lord Potter") theme is under heavy development. We also have a light ("Light Lord Potter") theme for those happier with a light background and darker text.

    I've been getting plenty of emails from ff.net, but no story update alerts.

    Really, what other emails do you get from ff.net if they're not alerts?

    Update Alerts are the key words, there are other others like New Story by author or Added Story to community alerts I believe.

    Pretty much. I've been getting community alerts and fic favourite/follow alerts.

    Just checking, I've also received new story alerts from followed authors.

    I finally got a new chapter alert. I am tentatively hoping that the bug has been fixed.

    Alternatively, couldn't you just download the app and check you're followed through that?

    I got a couple of emails telling me my story had gotten new reviews but they aren't there when I load the reviews. It's been a couple of days and it is still the same. Anyone else having the same problem?

    That problem pops a couple times a year. New reviews don't load. Just have to wait. FFN staff suck ass, don't bother with them.

    Has anyone been getting strange emails from ff.net?

    Yes, that's correctly formatted from the email.
