    When I get email notifications of replies to threads I've posted to, these notifications are often from "VisorCentral.com" rather than "TreoCentral.com", and the URL of the thread is incorrect, being http://discussion.visorcentral.com/... rather than http://discussion.treocentral.com/....

    Following the visorcentral.com link will just result in an error that I'm not logged in (which makes sense since I don't visit the Visor site -- I have a Treo). I have to change "visor" to "treo" to get the link to work properly.

    Does this happen for all accounts, or is there something wrong with my account that causes this to happen? I haven't really kept track, but I'd estimate 50% of the notifications I get are from TreoCentral.com and 50% are from VisorCentral.com, which implies this is a randomly-occurring bug (perhaps a race condition where both the Treo and Visor sites are continually looking for new posts and whichever one finds one first will send the email).

    I get the same notifications from visorcentral... not a huge deal to me...

    I logged into visorcentral with the same id/pass as treocentral and it works no problem, and it seems to stay logged in as long as I don't remove my visorcentral cookies, although I would assume the same would happen at treocentral if I removed those cookies as well.

    IMO, I am a TREOfanatic at heart and tend to read my discussions at the treocentral forum, but if I get the email from visor (which is 99% of the time for me) I'll deal with the ugly puke-yellow screen for a few seconds to read the reply then hit my treocentral bookmark to look at the new postings in a more favorable (& proper) environment!

    I am the same, about 50/50. If you look at this thread

    http://discussion.treocentral.com/tc...threadid=23549

    it has been an issue since last spring and it has not been fixed yet.

    I would also like another link within the e-mail for the mobile edition, so I can copy and paste it into blazer.

    Thanks -- I did a search prior to posting to see if there was an existing thread on this, but my keywords (including "visorcentral.com") didn't pick up that thread.

    Excellent idea. Hopefully the powers that be will read this...

    Will try to get around to fix the e-mail problem. We hacked the discussion board to get it working on two sites as the same time, and some bad variables might be hanging around.

    It seems to me that now all TreoCentral new post notifications contain "visorcentral.com" URLs, rather than it being ~50% like it was previously.

    However, the "real name" portion of the From: line now always says "TreoCentral.com Mailer" (though the email address is always <staff@visorcentral.com>). Previously it would say "VisorCentral.com Mailer" if the email contained a visorcentral.com URL and "TreoCentral.com Mailer" if it contained a treocentral.com URL.

    I almost hate to post this here in case it influences the TreoCentral folks to put off fixing their bug even longer, but I've written a script that can work around the bug. It's called TreoVisorCentral_notification and it processes the notifications to contain just the URL of the new message(s), so you can browse to them directly from the SMS popup window. And regarding your quote above, it can optionally rewrite the URL to be on the mobilediscussion forum rather than the normal discussion forum.
