Super slow deal alerts notifications

4 hour delays sending out an alert after a deal is posted. What's going on, why so slow now? It didn't use to be this way.

i'm sorry to hear that. have you double checked your alert settings? if there are deals you want to flag by keyword alone with no other criteria make sure minimum thread rating is "any" and the alert is set to "instant". if you are willing to share your settings for one(s) you feel were delayed someone might be able to help.

I had Instant set, I just changed from Popular to Any. Thanks! We'll see how that goes.

"popular" means it won't trigger until the thread hits the criteria for pop deals, which, as you noticed, can take awhile Smilie

good luck! Peace
