  1. Some of you might know there was an ongoing problem for some users with password resets on the main site. Im pretty sure this was down certain email systems (mainly hotmail, outlook/live.com I think) deciding that we were a spam server. It was inconsistant so sometimes they would let emails through and sometimes they wouldn't. Tried all sorts and couldn't get it resolved 100%.

    Yesterday I just finished moving ALL the mail sent from the main site over to Amazons mail services. As you can appreciate this was no small job, but I got it to a point where I was confident enough in my testing to release it last night.

    So if you have had problems resetting your password on the main site in the past you might want to give it another go this morning.

    NB: This is the password reset for the main tamiyaclub.com site. Your password in the forum and the process to reset that will remain unchanged. I am looking at trying to unify the two though at some point.

  2. It came second to constructing a couple of beds, several sets of drawers and a couple of wardrobes. Its on the list though, so hang tight. If you want to pull together a single list of model number, name, chassis type for all the new ones, to save me digging though all the posts that would help a lot.

  3. The 'Just Ask for a Free Subscription' unfortunately closed quite a while ago, but it was replaced with an option for any current or new subscriber to gift a free 12mth subscription to a friend/contact/stranger. (or another way of looking at it was those thinking of getting a subscription, you can currently get two subscriptions for the price of one, so you could split the costs between you)

  4. I don't know what to tell you. Hot mail are blocking some of the emails we send out and are sending our servers the message that the user should request our email should be white listed. Technically I think they have blocked emails going through SendGrid who is the service we use. The message coming back from Hotmail is that if it is blocked in error the user should contact them. Whether they do anything i have no idea. At this point though, that is all I have to offer. I am not in a position to find another supplier at comparable rates and then refactor and test all the code I would need to use them. Just being honest.

    If you want to want me to reset the email associated with your account I can do that if you DM me via the forums.


  5. @nicherotors at the moment, I'm out of ideas. The tracking I've put in place shows me that people are resetting passwords and then logging in ok. There are several every day using a variety of browsers and OS's. I can't think of what other logging to add that would give me more clues at the moment. Not saying you are doing anything out of the ordinary or wrong just can't think what it could be. Try the password reset again and I will give it another shot of trying to work out what the issue is

  6. I can see hundreds of comments left in August so not quite sure why you would be having issues. Basically the way it works is

    a) if you are logged in (ie you see your name in the top right - then you can just leave comments

    b) if you are not logged in (weather you are a member or not) you can leave a comment if you give your email but you will be sent a confirmation email yourself - to verify you are a real person - before that comment is passed onto the model owner.

    Neither route should ask you to login or even sign up, although the second does offer signing up as an option.

    Perhaps you could post some screenshots here of what you are seeing on stage at each step?
