It's been a while, but after some painstaking hours of coding, debugging and configuring mail servers I have brought the Pinside Marketwatch back from the dead!
The Pinside Marketwatch is basically a notification system that sends you weekly, twice-weekly or daily PM's, listing new games on our marketplace. It only includes your wishlist games, to keep things nice and lean and easy to digest.
Marketwatch PM's, like all other PM's, can be forwarded to your e-mail address. To have all PM's forwarded to your e-mail simply make sure the "PM messages" checkbox is checked (in the E-mail notifications section on that same settings page). and of course make sure you e-mail address is current and that Pinside e-mails ([email protected]) are not going to your spam box.
Due to technical limitations and the problems involved with sending out thousands of e-mails every day, the Marketwatch was disabled a long while ago. But with out new server capacities and the updated PM system, I'm gonna give this another shot. Let's see how it goes!
What do you need to do to receive Marketwatch notifications?
1. Go to your account settings and scroll down to the Marketwatch section.
2. Select one of the frequencies (weekly, twice-weekly or daily*)
3. Optionally choose the ASAP mode*, which will make you receive a PM immediately after a game is added to the marketplace (never miss out on great deals again!).
*Whoah, wait a second! What are those red boxes? Pinside+?
Daily and ASAP notifications are "+ features". These are features targeted specifically towards the heavy users of the site. While I strive to keep Pinside free for all, features that require more resources, such as this one, will be added under the + flag. Read more about + on our donations page!
The system is now online. The schedule is as follows:
- Daily Marketwatch PM's are sent out every day (duh) at ~21:00 (9PM) CET.
- Twice-weekly Marketwatch PM's are sent out Tuesdays and Fridays at ~22:00 (10PM) CET.
- Weekly Marketwatch PM's are sent out Fridays at ~23:00 (11PM) CET.
- ASAP notifications... Well... As Soon As (the ad is) Posted!
To find out what CET is, google it!
