Im not sure if this is the right thread to ask but i could not find a thread talking about it. It appears the messaging system has been severely culled. Group notifications and quote responses dissapeared. Is this going to get fixed or is this the new way things are going to work?

I have not noticed anything like that but frankly, if it's a Tech thing, it is very very very unlikely to be fixed.

That's not something we have any access to and even if we did, I doubt any of us would know what to do about it.

Hahahaha how the fuck does this even happen?
How do you lose ALL of your paid staff like this?
Like, why the fuck did all the people leave in the first place? Why did no one stop them? No cash?

Padwolf:
I volunteer as tribute!

I can talk about games. You want someone to do random blog posts about adventures in Final Fantasy XIV? A column on Eorzea fashion? I'd be all over it.

Sounds good! If you haven't already seen it, you can pitch anything here:

Understandably, things may be a little slow over the holiday period, we are only volunteers after-all. :-)

No one wanted to work here anymore. After it had became a mouth piece for harassing, far right scum people left this place in droves.

So you are telling me that the missing message categories are on my side. Im posting a screenshot of what i am seeing, notice how comment replies and groups are missing:

On my end I still have quoted notifications as well as a group listed on my drop down

Theory - you manually deleted all messages in your quoted/group folders resulting in the folders being removed from the inbox which means they no longer display on the drop down & you currently have Quote Notifications set to off

What Gauche said right above me as I also have all my notifications and whatnot working with no issues (Chrome).

If that does not work, plug-ins can interfere with them so if you're running plug-ins, try to disable them and see if it works or in a different browser. If I were a betting man, I'd guess that a plug-in is blocking it.

I never delete quote notifications and i did not alter the settings, i just found myself with those missing. Thank you for confirming this is on my end, though. However i checked and indeed the settings became off for some reason, so i guess if the system somehow wiped all notifications i suppose thats possible (doesnt explain group notifications, though). I would appreciate if you were to quote me to test this.

I am normally using Firefox, i trued logging in with IE that is used for nothing but my works internal website because they didnt program it right for other browsers and have the same issue. Same goes for Firefox Safe Mode (all addons disabled and default settings). However Gauche did lead me to notice the noifications got disabled on thier own somehow, so id appreciate a test now that i reenabled them.

The category appeared now, thank you. Got no idea how the settings got reset and all previuos messages deleted. I guess the ghost of Kross doesnt like me.

So this is the end huh? Feels like yesterday I started lurking. Then signed up a while after. Good times, bad times, this site's had em all.

EDIT: And my pic is gone :( I thought i updated it after the free pup club.

That is indeed my picture! Thank you kindly, now when this place does finally go into the sunset, I'll go the way I came.

I salute you for all the good times the Escapist gave me. If you guys need any help in the future then please ask!

It really saddens me to see The Escapist in this state. It has been apart of my life since I was in high school, I use to read all my gaming news here and watched all the content it had to offer. I noticed things didn't seem right when that news started to drop off and the lack of E3 coverage last year added to those fears. It has been a hell of a ride guys.

"The new community-run Escapist will be looking for your input on how the site operates, and for volunteers in creating content. "

So basically instead of hiring staff you want people to create content for you for free. Not cool Escapist, not cool.

Remember that it was by not paying content producers like Extra Credits that led to where we are now...
