New Offer Provider A/B
Based on user feedback, we're currently testing a new offer provider (Super Rewards) to some of our users. We're hoping that this offer provider will provide more timely updates of offers and pay out faster. If the test goes well we'll roll this out to everyone.
From about 1AM PST this morning, a server problem prevents SuperRewards offers from funding, even though the offer was completed. The problem has been cleared up and you should be receiving any delayed payments shortly.
Forum Tweaks and Menu Changes
- Hotfix for forum posts for FF users where they would have a 1px-3px horizontal scroll bar
- Tweaked the menu -- promoted conventions up and, per user suggestion, added a link to our blog.
Yahoo deliverability problems
We are still working with Yahoo to resolve their e-mail deliverability problems. We hope to get this resolved shortly.(*)
(*) This is made amazingly difficult by the fact that it is impossible to talk to a single person at Yahoo that has responsibility for this -- at this point we are trying direct contact, using our third party vendors, and searching for the name of the girl who dated someone who knew someone in Yahoo Mail Operations.(**)
(**) It's horrible to use Dev Notices for editorial digressions such as the previous footnote. We will now return you to our usual fact-dense terse one-liners.
Yahoo deliverability should be fixed
Yahoo is saying that they've fixed the problem and you should start receiving e-mail in the next hour or so. Please let us know in Site Feedback if it's still a problem after an hour. Thanks for your patience!
Meta is Meta Redux
Two fixes to dev notices:
- should have fixed the spurious "dev alerts" coming up. You'll need to clear the current one (if any) but hopefully it should not be popping up too frequently.
- fixed ordering of messages in dev alerts
