Most people know about the errors has been having recently in regards to uploading new chapters. Well, there appears to be another -- at least for gmail users.

It turns out that notifications are being delayed by as much as two days. I've been getting reviews hitting my inbox today that happened on March 30th. However, from reading support forms these delays are not occurring with other email accounts (hotmail, yahoo, ect.)

Just thought I'd throw that out there in case you're like me who thought that NO email alerts were getting out at all, and that no one would ever see that In His Shoes was updated. I was feeling a little emo until I actually logged into and saw that wasn't the case at all. XD

I'm going to switch my account to a hotmail account and forward my email back to gmail and see if that works.

I find it deeply ironic that this is likely the exact opposite problem lj was having with notifications (where other providers were getting delayed by spam filters and gmail was coming through). There was a lot of gmail snobbery going on in the news thread on why yahoo/hotmail users can't join the 21st century and use gmail. Ah well. Even the great googles can't avoid a spam filter.

I'm a total gmail fan, NGL. But even I know it's silly to put all your eggs in one basket. IT is nice to know they aren't infallible, though. I just wish they'd fix this ASAP! Grrrr

Well, thanks for letting us all know. I was wondering why I didn't have any notifications when I *know* I got reviews for my latest update.

NP. I don't know who is to blame for this one -- google or, but someone needs to get their ass in gear and fix this. :P

Hotmail, too, actually. I haven't been getting notifications either. Oh well o.O

Really? Damnit. Well I switched it over to my hotmail account and I literally got something within five minutes. Ugh. I'd hate to manually check my fics for reviews. Soooo many fics and I'm sooooooooooooooooooooo lazy.

Maybe it just hates me, then. I had to check my fics for reviews I got, and felt bad I missed them x.x.
