    Pulled Threads! Notification??

    If a thread is being pulled because of excesses(?). Why continue to post emails referring to it. I received an email about 3 hours ago. When I clicked on the link, I got the message:
    "Invalid Thread specified. If you followed a valid link, please notify the administrator"

    All previous emails referring to this thread are linked to the same message.

    I've seen a lot worse that was allowed to continue. Should this have been in the "pit"?

    Just asking if you received the email before the thread was pulled? Id assume you did because no one can add to it, which would generate the email, once its been pulled.

    The email was received at 6:54PM Central. I didn't look at it until 9:45, at which time the thread was gone.

    Mods may have moved or deleted it. Threads under discussion go into the mods room that you can't see...

    Also note that email is best effort not guaranteed delivery.
    It might take a while for an email to be generated and sent depending on amount of traffic due to system speed and throttling to avoid being labeled as spam.
    Then it might make it to you instantly or might get held up traversing the internet.
    These are just general observations, I have no knowledge of the inner workings of castboolits nor gunloads.

    I have seen delays of several hours from posting until receipt of notifications on castboolits and other forums when I was actively following threads.

    I had a thread I started disappear without warning. I asked the mod and got an answer as to why and that was that. Big deal, it's just a thread
    I am become death. The destroyer of worlds

    We all do our duty when there is not cost to it, honor comes easier then. Sooner or later there comes a day in every man's life when it is not so easy, a day when he must choose and live with it for the rest of his days.

    I am sure glad someone got a reply.

    When a post is made to a thread notifications are instantly generated and sent out. The speed at which you receive that notification is related to may things including but not limited to the speed of the internet, the time it takes your e-mail server to receive then processe the notification, how long it takes your server to post it to your local inbox, and lastly the refresh rate your inbox is set at. Once a thread is deleted no more e-mail notifications are generated, however there may be previous notifications still heading down the pipeline which is what you are experiencing. I hope that answers your question.
